The cut on this is perfect for rolling as you have all the extra slack where you need it and not much where you don't. It is extremely well made, as good or maybe even a bit better than Kokatat products. It fits just as the size chart indicates. If you are planning on wearing a baggy-ish dry suit underneath and/or a pfd you may want to go up a size. I wear mine with a farmer john and base layer and no pfd and it fits perfect and gives me enough loose space underneath to rotate around but with more than this, it's not as spacious and could feel a little restricting.
The tuliq has been a revelation to me. I stay significantly warmer, drier (which is not easy where I live) and more comfortable wearing the tuliq than a traditional paddle jacket and skirt. Highly recommend this product. ????
What a revelation. I got a Tuiliq because I was getting so much water in the boat when rolling that I had to keep bailing it all out. Now, wearing a Tuiliq there is minimum water in the cockpit. I'm warmer and even with only thin t-shirts underneath I can roll without getting cold. I had a made to measure one made up and the fit is absolutely spot on. Rotation is so much easier as well, you have room to manoeuvre. If you're thinking of getting one, it really is worthwhile.

I love my Tuiliq! I bought it primarily for training the Roll, but in most considitions now it is my standard clothing. If colder I wear more layers under it. But even in warmer conditions it feels a really big amount better than a paddle Jacket. And if it gets to warm its so easy to make a roll and cool down this way. The size chart fits pretty well the real Garment - so thanks a lot for this great Product!
