I had a concern from another review where they said it smelled so bad they had to return it. I did notice a smell, which is normal, but it wasn't anything too horrible. I didn't notice it much when wearing it or even when washing it outside. The only time I really noticed the smell was when I put it on a drying rack in the bathroom and closed the door. Even so, I think the smell should go away over time and I will update if it doesn't or if it gets worse.
UPDATE 7/20/20: Contacted O'Neil who have been very unprofessional in their response. You would expect a big company like this to remedy the issue promptly. They are not willing to own up to their defective craftsmanship at this time. DO NOT BUY THIS WETSUIT, DO NOT BUY FROM ONEIL. I will post another update if they ship a replacement product.
I expect O'Neil to get in touch regarding this issue. Will update when able.
Size: 2XLS (for a 5'11, 215 LBS man)
Great wetsuit, great price, so nice I bought it twice! One for me, one for my son... Great for Cold (sub 50° H2O)... Not sure how much lower than 50° but definitely great for that temperature range. I'm 5'11 and I weigh approx. 215 LBS or so, so I'm not tall, but I'm not small... went with the 2XL(S) size and it is a perfect fit. Couldn't fit any better in my opinion. My son and I tested these suits for a couple of hours just floating around out in Galveston Beach (there was no surf that day, so a good day to just test them out by floating around for a while)... we couldn't feel the cold water at all the suits are GREAT, 5 Star Great! I can already tell I'm going to need some gloves and I just decided on a couple of NP Neoprene Beanies... (hard to find with Prime benefits included)... back to the wetsuit, awesome fit, awesome quality, awesome comfort, and all around awesome value for the money! Would HIGHLY recommend the O'Neil Epic 4/3mm wetsuit for anyone in the south surfing or scuba diving during winter months. Outstanding purchase!
I went out for my first swim today. Ambient temp was about 65 degrees. The lake water was 48 / 50 degrees.
This suit was amazing. I ordered a 4 xls because I'm a bigger guy all around and even when I shed weight, my chest is big as are my arms and thighs. The suit fit almost right. I had a little bit of roll in the arms, arm pits, legs, and crotch. Despite that little bit of roll, the suit did it's job perfectly. As I swam, I could feel the heat radiating from my body in the suit and the warm water between myself, the suit, and the lake. I swam for an hour, and I can say I never even felt chilly while in the water (aside from the exposed areas of my face at first as I eased myself into the water).
In terms of fit, I did feel the water rush into my suit at the low back, because the suit is a tad too large, but it insulated well, and it kept that water warm.
I'm exchanging this for one size down, but I'm sticking with O'Neil. I can't say enough great things about this suit.

Other than that the suit is nice and comfortable. I don't sense any restriction when paddling, although I do not paddle long-distance.
In the past simply depending on hieght and weight for a well fitting suit doesn't work.
I'm 6' tall and average 150 lbs depending on what I've eaten that day, (seriously it fluctuates that much) with a 31.5" waistline and I bought the Medium/Tall and couldn't be happier.
The material is far more flexible than my other suit so getting a snug fit is way easier.
Just an Fyi, the velcro for around the neck seal is VERY strong and unles you put it over the opposite velcro strip when putting your suit away, ie in your dive bag etc, it will stick to the neoprene material and start to fray it over time.
You won't find a better suit for less money, so just buy it already.
As for the suit itself, I think it is good quality for the money. The velcro thing around the neck is very sticky and will damage the inside of the suit if no careful. Maybe sew a patch of non-stick fabric close to the velcro so that it cannot damage the surrounding inside of the suit?
