Can you touch your hands behind your back? If so, get a rear entry suit! They’re better than front entry in every way: cheaper, tougher, and tighter. If you have good shoulder mobility you can get in and out yourself with a short leader on the zipper. If you don’t, you’re stuck in there until someone else unzips you and the over-the-shoulder front entry with telescopic torso design makes sense. I’ve owned two Bare suits and can certainly recommend their warranty and service! They’re slow sometimes but very generous and reasonable.

Seconding what Zef said though: if you’re buying a used drysuit, fit is the only thing that matters.
