    Did you get it with a plastic zipper? I chose plastic over the metal zip I'd been using for the past 5 years on my other drysuit, so I'd be interested to hear how the plastic one is...seems easier to maintain, but obviously concerned about its durability (and your comment about staying "pretty" dry LOL).

    Glad to hear you're satisfied with it though.

    I have a buddy with elite+
    He is very satisfied and dives a lot. He has at least 100 hr and probably 70+ dives with it.
    Santi uses YKK plastic zippers that are quite durable. I would definitely get the suit with that plastic zipper.
    Basic elite without flexible panels is also available, those last a decade of hard use.

    Yes, plastic zipper; no problems with it, just take normal care of it.

    @PMscuba Did you ever receive your Elite Plus suit? If so, how has it performed? I'm still apparently a month or so out from receiving mine, but continually looking for folks' impressions.
