"CoolMax" lining in Bev Suits Can't Post

Looking for opinions on this from those who may have it in theirs. Effective? Cooler in summer, warmer in winter? Add any "bulk"? Advantages? Disadvantages? Any & all info and experiences, feedback with this appreciated.

TIA & BLUE SKIES!

Had it on my previous suit, don't have it on my current suit. I don't notice any difference. The coolmax lining ripped on my old suit... kept getting worse and worse when I'd catch a foot on the rip. I don't personally think it's worth the cost.

Well there's your problem, you were wearing it wrong. You aren't supposed to be putting your feet through your camera jacket sleeves.Crazy

Ha. Honestly I don't remember where the rip was, but the lining isn't just in the arms. It ripped somewhere I was catching with some part of my body when I put it on.

I like it on mine. I've found that it doesn't stick to my body as much as the suit that I wore that didn't have it. Haven't worn it in winter.

I don't have it but my friend who does said it was pretty comparable to just wearing gym shorts or an under armor type shirt under the suit... not really anything special. And I wear gym shorts anyway.

I have it, but wouldn't get it again. If I want another layer, I'll wear another layer.

I have it (the Bev Suit version in one jumpsuit and the Tony Suit version in another) and would definitely get it again. But the fronts of both of my jumpsuits are Nylon and would not be comfortable without some sort of lining. I don't know if I'd be so willing to pay extra for it if I had a suit with a cotton front.

Stops the suit from sticking to you on warm days.

I don't really know if it makes a big difference or not, because I like it when it's in the 100s, I'm covered in sweat and wearing full gear & weights on a 20 minutes call.
