The Stohlquist EZ Dry Suit provides waterproof protection for a great all-around dry suit. It's made with Stohlquist's highly breathable and waterproof 4-layer Twin Sensor fabric. The EZ has a slightly relaxed fit for full mobility and comfort over a wide range of base layers. The neck gasket is made of super-stretch neoprene and the wrist gaskets are a soft neoprene coated Duraseal latex that offer UV and tear resistance. The entry and relief zippers are waterproof and covered with a flap to help keep them clean. The EZ also features fabric dry socks sized to fit, reflective accents, and adjustable wrist and ankle cuff covers.

Great suit for the price! - Very fast to put on and the material allows your feet to easily slide into all types of water shoes or boots. The suit doesn't have suspenders, but I haven't found it to be a problem - When you properly "burp" the suit and put on a PFD it fits great and stays in place. The collar is not latex, I found it more comfortable and doesn't role other latex collars do - The wrist seals are a little thicker neoprene/latex than that found on other drysuits and appear like they are less resistant to tearing. As far as sizing: I'm 5'10" 170 lbs and a Medium is almost a perfect fit.
It's my first dry suit. The neck is a very tight latex with two layers of latex. I ended up trimming it down to one layer and it's more comfortable. While on the water I have to stretch the neck gasket occasionally to get a break from it. Other then that its great! The feet are somewhat thin. Im hoping they dont wear over time. I joined ACKs mailing list and received a 15 or 20% off promo code making the suit cost only $330ish!!! For the price you can't beat it. My only complaint is the tight neck. Sizing, I'm an athletic 5'9" and a large is a too baggy. It feels fine but looks big on me. Overall you can't beat it for the price. I submerged myself in 40*F water and it worked like a charm! It was a great value but I imagine a neoprene neck would be much more comfortable the this suit.
I was right on the line between a medium and a large. I went with the large and the fit is quite baggy. The wrist gaskets are neoprene coated latex and are very comfortable for me. The neck gasket is a double layer neoprene as described above. It is completely different than than other neoprene neck gaskets I've tried. For me it was a very snug fit. Stohlquist offers free neck gasket resizing for the EZ. I ended up paying the shipping and they have a one month back log. You need to contact them for an RA before you send it in. I only test fitted it a couple times and had it in the water once. Because of the tight neck fit I may have been to rough with it and a small length of the neck gasket stitching started to rip out. Hoping all is well and good when I get it back.
Fits to size, sturdy and well made. I use it in the NW and the suit is an affordable choice for the cold water. Wish it came in other colors than black, in the direct sunlight when paddling around it does heat up more than my yellow splash top/dry pants I wear on occasion.
