Salvimar suits vs Yamamoto suits
 
Looking for some input from anyone who has experience with both. I'm looking into a salvimar NAT suit but I know it isn't yamamoto rubber. How do their suits compare to those that use yamamoto? I'd like to know how durable they are and how the comfort compares.

If you have Yamamoto on a pedestal ...you are drinking THERE cool aid!

I have one yamamoto suit and I like it fine, I know it is a popular material in lots of different suits out there, I just don't know anything about the material salvimar uses. My main question is whether salvimar suits are good quality compared to others

The salvimar people would be well advised to say what material they use... we are not all looking for the same thing.

I use yamamoto mostly but I also need a compression resistant suit, so no yamamoto 39 or 45 (worse). There were yamamoto 20 suits from Picasso long ago. I now wonder how they would compare to Sheiko's compression resistant stuff or Heiwa SK... Life is full of needless mysteries...
