Just wondering if anyone knows if there are different grades/manufacturers of limestone neoprene. I know that the Yamamoto product is used by some of the higher end suits like Seventhwave and Isurus, but do the other more common brands claiming to use limestone neoprene like say NeedEssentials and Xcel use the same product, or is it a lower grade product which is reflected in the pricing structure.

Not sure either GaryG.
I've got a Seventhwave and am stoked with it, but if someone's on a tight budget it would certainly be good to be able to have quality comparisons.

Great question G.
Also curious as to why wetsuits don’t last long these days. Does limestone neoprene deteriorate quicker than normal neoprene or do some brands just make them to fall apart after a year or two?
