"Feels like it would last a long time, very comfortable to wear - could be too small for someone with a large chest, top of costume quite low but I'm 34B and it's fitting fine. Really minimal back means low drag, very comfortable."
Pros: Durable, Great Value, Attractive, Comfortable

"To replace a lost DHB head warmer, this was on offer and looked great. Very soft fleece inside, wicks away sweat nicely and keeps ears and head warm under helmet. Perfect. A little bit big but I have a ton of hair so this is no problem for me!"
Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality

Pros: Durable, Attractive, Comfortable, Adjustable, Good Fit

What is the leg height, and is this suit lined, front or back, or both?

I would say high leg, not lined but the endurance material is thick and is almost a double layer - very durable.

What size should i get?

I wear a size 46.5 shoe, should i get a 45/46 or a 47/48?
I would go bigger, the velcro under the shoe means you can pull it tighter if you need.

Are there still reliability issues with the stitching on this product? Recent reviews suggest there is...?

Mine split first wear, without even the excuse of washing machine wear & tear... :(

Do they have zips at the ankle?
