Everyday Sessions Wetsuit
Neoprene and Liners
The Everyday Sessions is constructed out of StretchFlight Eco Neoprene which is made using recycled materials, like scrap tires and neoprene waste. Doing this reduces the CO2 emissions of each suit by 24%.
For a liner, The Everyday Sessions features WarmFlight Eco Velvet which has a nice burgundy color and adds to the comfort and warmth of the suit. You’ll find the WarmFlight from the knees up to the chest/back on this wetsuit, while the rest of the suit (arms, lower legs) has a standard lighter-weight liner that maximizes stretch and makes the suit easy to slide on and off.
Seams and Stitching
The Everyday Sessions features GBS (glued and blind-stitched) seams, which create a water-tight seal. For durability, Quiksilver added internal taping from the chest down through the knee pads of the wetsuit and critical spot tape at seam junctions throughout the interior.
Lastly, all seams are made with Aqua Alpha, non-toxic, water-based glues this year. It’s good to see Quiksilver continue improving their wetsuits' Eco factors.
Fit and Cut
According to the size chart for the Everyday Sessions, I was between the LT and the XLT. I weigh 195 lbs and am 6’3”. I chose the LT as it fit a bit more snugly than the XLT. I found that the arms and legs were short but not enough to warrant sizing up. I felt that the Everyday Sessions was comfortable and flexible, and once in the water, the suit became more form fit. The ankles and wrists of the suit were snug and did a great job keeping the water out. The entry of the suit was easy to get in and out of but kept water from flushing the suit. Overall, I was happy with the fit, and we’ve always felt like Quiksilver wetsuits fit most people great.
From my weeks of testing, the Everyday Sessions was a very comfortable and warm wetsuit. The flexibility was excellent and allowed for easy paddling and movement. The hood fits comfortably and creates a solid seal around the face. As someone who prefers internal taping on seams, I found the seams on the Everyday sessions to be comfortable and didn’t create irritation. During my sessions with the suit, the Quiksilver Everyday Sessions 5/4/3 kept me extremely warm in the 50° water. Though I didn’t get to try the suit in lower temperatures, I would trust the 5/4/3 thickness of the Everyday Sessions to continue to keep me warm in water temperatures around the mid 40’s.
Value and Durability
The Everyday Sessions is a great value for your dollar. It has just the right features to keep you warm, and the suit is simple and durable. Partially Taped & GBS seams help increase the suit's longevity as they are strong and watertight where needed most. The Everyday Sessions is a wetsuit that will keep you toasty warm, and with many wetsuit models under the $300 mark, you are getting a solid quality suit at a great price point.
