Best jumpsuit for the money and then some! 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: moviemayhem, 2013-02-06


I have a few friends who own Kurupee suits, both one piece freefly and two piece, who love them and recommended I try them out. I have to admit, I felt like I was making a little bit of a gamble based on prior reviews about customer service. Boy was I about to be proven wrong!

I ordered a one piece freefly suit. I opted for mini-grippers on the arms and legs, double material in the lower arms and legs to slow me down a bit, and cordura butt and knees. The mesh lining as standard is awesome. Asked for name embroidery on the collar and an all black suit but but requested they use red thread for all the stitching for an understated look. Also opted for rush service so I could have it in time for the Skydive Sebastian Invasion in Florida starting 12/26. My order date was 11/13/12.

About twelve days after ordering I emailed and asked about the progress of my suit. I received a reply within the hour stating that my suit was shipping the next day and would receive a tracking number, which I did the following day. I received the suit THREE days later from SOUTH AMERICA. Holy geezus that's fast!

Suit looked perfect, exactly what I thought it would be like. I immediately tried it on for fit and...oh no! The sleeves were about 4 inches too short! Everything else fit as it should, based on the Medium fit I ordered (they come in a tight, medium and baggy or loose fit). It's worth noting my friend who is a professional costume designer for film measured me three times and then averaged them as my final measurements to be sent.

I immediately emailed Ed and even sent some photos of the fit. He assured me he would fix the problem. I thought that might mean sending the suit back to Paraguay and them altering it for me. Nope! Instead he insisted they make an entirely new one and even offered to ship it to Skydive Sebastian so it would be waiting there for me after I drove down from NYC. Instead I asked for it to be sent to a relative nearby. One week later I get a call from my aunt saying it had arrived.

So they made a mistake, responded immediately to my correspondence about it, offered to make an entire new suit and expedite it's creation and then ship it practically overnight to Florida. If there is another company that makes custom goods out there, let alone jumpsuits for skydiver's, with this kind of customer service, please let me know. This is way above and beyond anything I could have possibly expected.

In the end, from initial order on 11/13/12 to delivery of my SECOND jumpsuit on 12/19/12, I would say I was completely blown away with Kurupee.

By the way, my 2nd suit was absolutely perfect and I had tons of people asking me who made it, whether it was during the invasion at Sebastian, or during travels afterward at Z-Hills and Skydive Deland. All I did was point to the logo on my leg pocket! :)

Kurupee can expect to see me as a return customer very soon as I plan to buy a two piece free fly suit later this year to have more options during the warm summer months.

Kurupee and Eduardo (Ed) F**CKIN' ROCK!!! Quality of construction, price, customization and customer service are absolutely top notch. They must have listened to people's reviews and boy did they step up their game!

P.S. Anyone who wants to see photos of their workmanship, please feel free to get in touch with me...


Amazing company! 5 out of 5 stars

In doing research for my first jumpsuit since my A license, I really wanted a suit that stood out from all the other ones I've seen. A cool, customizable design was high on my list.

After looking at the specs of many other popular manufacturers I ran across the many designs that Kurupee had to offer. The prices were within my range so I started reading reviews about the company and their work.

The first reviews I started reading were horrible! Keep in mind this was back in 2004. As I kept reading, the reviews got progressively better and customers were extremely happy with their purchase. I made my final decision and went ahead with designing my suit (design, colors, sizes, etc) online. Of course I wanted my jumpsuit as soon as possible and they said they could have it done in 2 weeks. I paid the extra for a rush order and said I would like to have it by December 26th, 2012 (exactly 2 weeks from my order). I honestly didn't expect that to happen with the holidays and such but one could hope right?

Of course I got the standard "your order has been received" email right away. The very next day I get an email from Ed at Kurupee Suits saying "Thanks for your order. We will make sure it is there by the 26th." Right on!

2 weeks later...today.... I check the website and it says my order in still processing. :( Darn! I was hoping it had shipped already at least! I emailed Ed back directly and asked him about a status on the order. Within 15 minutes I got an email back saying that it should have already been delivered and he gave me the tracking number. Re-he-heally?!?! I looked up my tracking number on fedex.com and sure enough they tried to deliver the package to my office on Christmas eve (which of course we were not open). I called FedEx, got the location of where my package was and ran right over to pick it up.

I immediately pulled it out of the box to take a look at my creation and boy was I impressed! The colors, the stitching, my name on the back collar....it looked amazing! Now to get back and try it on.

It fits like a glove! The elastic wristbands are snug and they are certainly going to keep the cold out of my suit, the design looks just like I imagined.... I've actually been wearing it all day to "break it in"....yea lets call it that.

Not only did Kurupee deliver a fantastic looking product, they did it in 2 weeks and had great communication to make me feel comfortable about my purchase. Kudos to Ed C. for everything! I cant wait to jump it!


Kurupee Suits ROCK! 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: swarp619, 2010-09-13


I ordered my suit online on 31 aug. did all the measuring myself and with a help from a friend. it was easy to figure out what to measure with the picture diagram and instructions. Lots of different stock styles to chose from, and you can customize the colors right there and see it! I opted to pay the extra for the 2 week delivery because I really wanted to start jumping in it. After about 11 days, I emailed info@kurupee.com to check the status. On the same day I got a reply telling me it was shipped and on its way, and even gave me the tracking number with FedEx. Finally on 13 Sep it was delivered to my door. The suit fit perfectly with shorts and tshirt on, the way I measured. fits nice and snug but flexible enough to move and bend. So comfortable that I don't want to take it off! I recommend Kurupee to anyone wanting a new suit. I know the reviews below say the customer service was bad but that was years ago and its good to go now. I had no issues, couple other friends ordered through them and had no issues either. AND I got a free Kurupee tshirt! Right ON!!!
