      I'm not an expert on wetsuits - but have been very pleased with the kid's Farmer Bill wetsuit we ordered for our daughter. Yes, it is a snug fit all around.

      A:

      Wetsuits work most efficiently for thermal protection when they fit snugly to the body. This minimizes water entry and water exchange, which robs body heat. How snugly the Youth Farmer Bill fits any particular kid depends on body shape.

      A:

      Fits snugly, but is not restrictive. You don't want these things too loose or too tight, but properly sized if fits my son well.

      A:

      Depends on the kid. It fits quite nicely on my average-size 10 year-old, but relatively loose on my skinny 8-year old. The great thing is that NRS let me exchange sizes at no extra cost to me, or I could have returned it with free shipping for a refund if I wanted to. It also depends what you want to use it for? For short periods of time it works great, but for hours at a time (like whitewater canoeing) I wish I had paid another $100 or so per kid for a drysuit (complaining kids can ruin a family trip). But kids also grow.

      This was not the exact suit we purchased. We purchased the 3T, and then the 5T shorty wetsuit with sleeves. We found that these fit loosely in the torso, waist and legs, but snugly in the arms. It's notable that our daughter is a 'skinny minnie'. We have purchased this type suit in the adult version, both women and mens. These do fit snuggly. In hind sight, we wish we had gotten the pants only though, the life jacket plus the suit were too warm in combination for our California climate.
