Welcome to The Inertia’s definitive wetsuit review where we test and rate some of the industry’s best rubber so you can feel informed before purchasing your winter skin. We used a five-star rating system to rank each of our suits’ features (which you can see below). Here, we look at the Manera Meteor Magma 6/4 Hooded.
The Meteor Magma is Manera’s top-of-the-line, cold-water wetsuit. I gave it a shot in the 6/4 thickness, which has a hood. It also comes in 5/4/3, with and without a hood. 6/4 might be overkill for Northern California, but due to supply-chain shortages stock was limited. I also get cold easily, so a thick suit was appealing, even at the cost of some mobility.
