I bought a 3/2 Psycho Tech steamer from Wicks Colloroy last winter.
I have always bought O’neill wetsuits as I believe they are the best in the market, this is my 3rd O’neill steamer. My previous steamer lasted me 10 years.
However, I am extremely disappointed in my Psycho Tech, about a month ago the glued seams near the armpits split open, also the glue on the chest plate looks to be stretching and coming apart.
I took the wetsuit back to Wicks who informed me that O’neill would not replace the suit only repair the seams as it is out of warranty, Wicks were super unhelpful.
The wetsuit has been repaired at a cost of $55 to me
This is ridiculous, how can a $700 top of the line O’neill wetsuit only last 1 winter??
And then I get charged to have the wetsuit repaired!!
By no means am I using the wetsuit every day, I surf at most on the weekends, so the damage to the wetsuit is not caused by over use.
Unfortunately i won't be buying another O'neill wetsuit.
