I have always rated the Rip Curl middle of the range suits, they seem to have a good balance of features and a good compromise between durability and flexibility that really suits a general purpose summer suit. I purchased a Dawn Patrol suit this year though and have not been as impressed. I'm still toasty in a 3'2'' but the batwing system (inner flap behind the zip) that in older versions had an over-the-head loop has been replaced with a strange looped zip arrangement that (i) seems to flush a bit more, especially when bodysurfing, (ii) seems to cause me more neck rub than previous versions. I think I would avoid this configuration when looking to buy my next suit. I do believe you get what you pay for, but I think on the top end suits a proportion of what you pay for is hype!
