Hyperflex is a entry level brand from Henderson, the NJ manufacturer is the largest wetsuit manufacturer in the US.
to say this is trickle down technology/design is pretty accurate.
The material is buttery soft & comfortable. it stretches so much that it would probably fit a 9month pregnant woman w/ no problem.
Big shoulders, luv handles, thick thighs..no problem. it will stretch & be comfortable.
Fits true to size & stretches w/o being baggy. you don't want baggy wetsuit.
fits ankles nicely, neck is comfortable, zipper is good quality & seals well.
the 5.4mm is super warm too. it's pretty much all you'd need for anything cold besides arctic use. the wind stop/splash panel on front/back is nice too. cut so it doesn't hinder movement but def blocks the wind & water spray.
I'm 5'9", 210#, 35/36" jeans waist, broad shoulders(XL shirts) & I like beer(no six pack abs here). 17" dress shirt/neck
The XL is a snug/athletic fit. I have the 3/2 shorty from the same co & it's an XXL. It's looser/more comfortable but does let some water in. Not a big deal as I use it in warmer weather. For colder weather I want to keep the water to a minimum... a snugger fit is proper.
I have other suits from other manufacturers. Each will fit differently(length, tight spots, baggy spots, etc) I find that this suit fits extremely well & stretches where it needs to for places I'm not so lean. Has a good torso length too(not a 'hugger').
