I’ve heard the new Nixie Ultra runs small. If you own multiple Bare wetsuit including the Nixie Ultra, let me know what you think of the sizing. I’m the same size in both Evoke (2021) 5mm and the old Nixie 3mm, but heard some people size up with the new Nixie. Also do you have any issue with the zipper coming down during dives? Thanks!

I assume they’d be consistent across lines to include the Velocity, but who knows. I have a 3mm Velocity from 2018 and a 7mm from a few months ago. They seem to fit the same.

I do have to be mindful when securing the Velcro below the zipper, but it works. It certainly could be improved.

Good to know. Thanks!
