Looking for new wetsuit.

Hey everyone I'm looking for a new wetsuit. After having owned several different varieties over the years I've decided I've never had a good fitting wetsuit. I'm looking for a 3xls I've seen 2xls but not 3xls. Any recommendations is much appreciated.

I just received my custom elios wetsuit the other day. Tried it on and must say it's better fitting than the general sized ones. Heard good things about the Polosub as well. Polosub has a pee tube that I wanted.

Re: Looking for new wetsuit.

I've made more than a few wetsuits for different companies for the past 20 years.

3XL your best bet is to go for a custom suit. There's too many body types to make up the volume of a 3XL suit. One could be someone who is 6'8" with Athletic Build. Another could be 5'10" and Built like a Bulldozer.. kneepads around the shins.. Neck too long. Generally Wetsuits for Spearfishing are made for Standard Athletic Builds. We are usually missing the XL Tall vs XL etc.. subsizing. Not sure if any companies that make production line suits are even making XXXL now, but even if they are your best bet is custom.
