Where online is the best place to order O'Neill wetsuits in the US? I'm looking for good prices and cheap (or free) shipping.

I need to order a new O'Neill 3/2 wetsuit for the summer. Most places locally rarely have my size in stock. I likely will need to order no matter where I go. I'm in Canada but thinking of ordering in the US and shipping to the border where I'll pick it up and bring it across.

PS. I'm looking specifically for O'Neill because I know how I fit their sizes. This is crucial when ordering site-unseen. As such, kindly refrain from suggestions on other brands. I just want to know where online in the US I should look.

Thanks for the help.

If I know the exact model and size I want, then I've had good luck on amazon.

Had great service from those guys. Including some durability issues that they solved very quickly.

So it turns out my current summer suit is a 3/2 Hammer.

What are the main differences between a Reactor, Hammer, Epic, Psycho? What do you get for the extra money?

Unless I'm mistaken ProMotion only sells their own house brand. Thanks for the suggestion however I am looking specifically for O'Neill.

One question you might want to consider is choosing a surf suit over a windsurfing suit. There are some differences, but going with the former gives you a ton more choices on the retailers out there. There are far more surf shops out there, and the interest is huge.

Coming from surfing, I prefer surf suits because of their extra durability and the fact that there are more sizes to choose from. Given the fact that you're looking for a 3/2 suit for warmer weather and water conditions, a surf suit just might be your best choice.

By the way, I've been an O'Neill guy forever, going far back into the surfing scene many years ago. Regarding the difference models available, I would focus on the sealed seam designs. They cost a bit more, but they're the best way to go, especially if you're looking for long lasting seam integrity and overall durability.

Bought over a dozen of O'Neill wetsuits of varies thickness for myself and the family from these three sites in the last few years when they are on sale. Love the psycho's stretchy TechnoButter neoprene and leak free urethane glued seam. Epic is fine if you don't mind that slightly leaky seam. Before that I wore Pro-motion storm suits for a few years. Very comfortable an warm but not as durable as the psycho.
