Similar in function to the Lavacore Oceanic Trilaminate Polytherm I also tried out, but this has wool in it in. Makes a difference? I cant really tell, but its in there. The biggest difference is that theres no zipper in the front or back. The only zipper is behind the neck for attaching the optional hood or neck collar. (Mine came with the neck collar) This suit is like a giant balloon, and you climb in though the neck! This is a much stretchy than the Lavacore and fits better. After you stick your legs in, the arms go in and finally, the suit wraps around the shoulders for a complete burrito wrap feeling. Very inventive. Works well and at 75+F can probably last for hours in the water. At 65F I can handle 45 minutes in the water before hypothermia kicks in. Not the same as a neoprene wetsuit, as the water does come in contact with your skin for the initial chill. It takes a minute for my body to warm up the water within the fleece, after which it forms a functional and insulative barrier. Personal demographic, 60" 185 lbs, 35" waist, 42" chest, plenty of body fat/couch potato equals size Large. Watch out for Velcro rubbing against the suit, my vest has a Velcro latch under the arm, which rubbed the suit up wearing the material into a fuzzy mess. Final note, Oct 2014, I wore this suit on my motorcycle going out to the dive site to try it out. It was 66-68F and passed though some light showers on the way, but this thing kept me warm! I was wearing a T-shirt over the suit,, but no pants. AT 70mph there is definitely wind chill, but my upper body, hips and legs were fine. The stretchiness also allowed me to ride my motorcycle comfortably. On a boat or some other active water sport, this suit should be no problem. Returning from the dive site, I did have to wear a rain jacket and pants on top of the suit before climbing on the motorcycle, since I was still wet and didnt have a change of clothing. Id give it 5 stars except thats reserved for the suit that can go below 65F.

Reviewer: DAMARIS WESCOTT  -  View all my reviews
I love this suit! The only thing I would have liked better, is if it had been designed for (or at least had a choice of) someone who is NOT tall and slender. In order to get one that fit around, the sleeves (which I will eventually have tailored) are about 4" too long and the legs are 3" to long. I LOVE the changeable neck piece and hood. That is the best part of this suit.

ABOUT V-SKIN

Pinnacle's new V-skin line takes all the technical features that Pinnacle has developed over the years and incorporates them into a layering system that will add significant thermal protection without buoyancy.
The V-skin line has taken Pinnacle's patented Merino™ lining to another level by incorporating it into a tri-laminate material with a microporous membrane and high stretch outer lycra. This highly technical combination of materials will form perfectly to the body without causing restriction; the form fit creates the perfect water layer held in place by the impermeable membrane. When out of the water the microporous membrane acts as a barrier eliminating wind chill while allowing excess heat and moisture to escape. With strategically placed highly breathable bi-laminate Merino™ panels the new V-skin line is the most comfortable and thermally efficient product on the market today.

ABOUT THE MERINO LINING SYSTEM

Though Merino™ was virtually unknown to the diving industry 5 years ago, it has come to be known as a hallmark of excellence. Discerning divers who want the most innovative and most durable products seek out PINNACLE, and those who will settle only for the best of the best choose PINNACLE’s Merino™ lined products. This unique material is truly the best-performing way to line a suit ever devised, providing more warmth, comfort, and odor control than any other.

Most wetsuits are lined with a synthetic weave of nylon and polyester, no different than they were 25 years ago. Once water floods these wetsuits, the water flows freely around the diver within the suit because the suit’s lining has very little ability to absorb and retain water. The diver’s body heat is drawn away from the diver in order to warm up the colder water, the exact inverse of an ice cube melting in a glass of water in order to chill the beverage. This creates temperature equilibrium, making the diver somewhat colder and the water slightly warmer. After the water sloshes around the interior of the suit, it then spills out into the environment, only to be replaced by more cold water from the outside environment, and the process begins again. Over time, the diver’s body loses more and more heat as it futilely tries to heat up huge and ever-cycling quantities of water. (Remember what happens to the ice cube after a short time!).

In contrast to inferior suits, PINNACLE’s suits allow only a small, closely-controlled amount of water to slowly enter the suit. The Merino™ lining then holds a greater amount of that water and retards the water’s circulation throughout the inside of the suit. After the diver’s body heat has warmed that water, the water is held inside the fibers of the Merino™ lining and kept there by the superior PINNACLE sealing systems. This means that a diver expends less heat energy because he is trying to warm a smaller volume of water throughout the dive, leaving a diver feeling warmer and more energetic after being
submerged for a given period of time.
