After going to the Seattle scuba show and spending some time with the Pinnacle rep, we were 100% sold on getting Merino Elastiprene suits to replace out old Henderson Hyperstretch suits. I noticed that ScubaToys had an amazing closeout deal on (what I'm guessing are) the "first generation" Elastiprene suits, so decided to save some big $$$ and get the non-Merino suit.
When I got the suit, all I could say was WOW! Not only was the fit amazing, but the suit construction and quality is far superior than most suits I've seen on the market. It's also pretty darned close to as stretchy as the Hyperstretch suits, yet is reported to be much warmer and not as prone to compression.
Bottom line for me is that I was so impressed with the suit that I decided to replace both of my wetsuits and went ahead and ordered another one (different thickness) from ScubaToys. I just received my 2nd Elastiprene today and was again WOWED by the suit....and 100% pleased with my decision to wear only Pinnacle wetsuits.
We'll still be buying the Merino Elastiprene for my husband since ScubaToys' sale is only on women's suits, but I think you can fairly call me a Pinnacle convert now.
