....

What was wrong with back zipper anyway!
The zip lets water in. You have stupid flappy things trying to keep the water out. You have velcro holding the flaps and the zip closed. Velcro is cancer for neoprene.

I have no trouble at all getting in and out of chest and zip free suits. I am tall and skinny and not at all flexible. It's easy to do. It's a problem. You solve it. Move on.

Ever saw a snake peeling off its skin. It is the same. Inch by inch, slowly and with a lot of patience. I love this suit.

Funny!

Well, I think I need to develop a special stick or something like a shoe horn. Or maybe stuff the kite bar down one arm then loop the kite?
I have a 6-5 xcel front zip. Got stuck in it too!

I made a rope with a hook on the end. I put hook at left shoulder and stand on the rope slightly bent over and stand up. Have to be careful to not puncture the suit. This gets one side down a bit. Then I can pull the neck membrane over left elbow and roll the sleeve off my arm.
In the 2c temps I do this the suit is stiffer, I've found a if I bring bottles of hot water, pouring it on the suit softens it.

Snakes are so pissed when they shed their skin though
