I bought the 4/3 AmpK for xmas (MedShort). I fall right in the middle of the weight size and it is just right, a little snug maybe. So if you are on the higher end, might want to consider going up, but each body type is different.

BTW, I've used it at Stinson and OB this winter, no problem at all for warmth, even tho it feels way thinner than my previous OLD O'Neill.

Just posted another wetsuit deal thread and wanted to follow up on this one as well. After awhile using the Hyperflex AmpK, I'd have to say I give it 3 stars.

5 stars for being a great fitting wetsuit that keeps me warm.
minus 2 stars for durability. Velcro is coming off at ankles. neoprene is cracking at graphics on outside. 'soft' material at neck is wearing off.

I'm thinking overall it might be a 1-2 season wetsuit. Hopefully longer as I'm hoping to return it for warranty replacement!

Ya Nick,

I tried one as well. To be honest it was of much lower quality than a true surf suit. The neoprene is nowhere near as stretchy or warm. They get by with it because we don't paddle as much as surfers and spend 'most' of our time up out of the water.
I actually ended up returning mine for a refund. I'm sticking with my Xcel suits. More money but a much better suit.
