Overall, it kept me very warm in 86 degree temps. Probably a little heavy for that temp, but it was comfortable. I'm 5'10", 200 with 44" chest and I ordered XXL and it fit fine. Based on other comments I read, this suit runs small, so I ordered one size up. I thought the sleeves were a little tight, but once I pushed them up on my arm, it was fine. Fairly easy to get off but I wore a rash guard under it which made it a little easier to pull off.

I bought a size larger (2XX) than recomended on the Cressi size chart; and it was too small particularily in the length of torso.
Thus hard to pull up over the shoulders and uncomfortable in the crouch.

        I ordered an XL (when I am typically M or L) based on previous reviews I had read. XL fit perfectly, so definitely go for a larger size if you are unable to try on before buying.

        Being a front-zippered, takes some used to in order to put on, but once on it is very comfortable.

          I usually wear a medium size and did note the feedback that this shortie fits small and therefore ordered a large. The large was still too small, so choose your size wisely.

            For my fist wetsuit I'm pretty impressed, I followed the reviews and bought a size bigger and I'm glad I did. I fits pretty good but can ride up the groin a bit, also it's a bit of an issue getting off but once you get used to it it's not a problem. Jellyfish are evil.

              Comments about Cressi 2.5 mm Front Zipper Playa Men's Shorty Black Red:

              I found the suit easy to get on (over a rashguard) and reasonable to get off thanks to the tip from Foundationer. I'm 5'10" and 220 (too much gut). The largest size (2XL) fit snugly but wasn't too tight. I noticed that pulling the legs down after it was on eased the tightness in the crotch. I'm very happy with the suit and especially the front zip.
