I ended up buying a Stohlquist b-POD because it seemed to be the best suit for the price. I have used it twice so far and am fairly happy with it. When the sun has been out and I have been pushing it the moisture has built up a bit, but it dries out quickly when I slow down and take it easy for a while. I haven't jumped in the wated with it on yet, but the neoprene neck gasket seems to be sturdy enough to keep out the ocean. I'll wait till the weather warms up to give the suit a real test.
