I had a side entry Rip Curl about 15 years ago and loved it... Still have it even. Glad to see Quiksilver bring this design back. No fussing with velcro or zippers or extra bulk. I've never had any issues with getting on or off once you find the method (sure it's not quite as easy as a zip back, but come on...) And I've not gotten any more water in this suit with flushes as with any other designs. I love it! Two seasons so far, no issues!
