I hit the search bar and didn't find a recent thread discussing this.

I ordered the O'neill Slasher Comp Vest and it's really high quality, light weight but it's a very tight compression/stretch fit and I'm worried it might not fit over a wetsuit.

Wondering what everyone else is rocking for comp vests and what's your recommendation to look at! Pics would be great too!

I use an O'Neill pullover for summer riding. Tight fit, but its the same stretchy material that your slasher will have. I also have a Ronix One impact vest one size larger than the pullover. I use that when using a suit in cold water.
The O'Neill is a nicer stretchy neoprene with a more segmented structure. I think the Ronix would float me a bit more though. Both easier to move in than a CGA. But, when I want to try something really new or that I'm a bit worried about I put on the CGA.

Thanks for the info. Yes I have a CGA too. Hyperlite Hatch. I guess I could stick to that when riding with a wetsuit. Trouble is I'm in NH and ride with a wetsuit for much of the season. I wonder if I size up on the slasher....

Those O'Neills are pretty stretchy. Unless you are already super tight I'd doubt the wetsuit will make that big of a difference. My medium O'Neill is tight. The large Ronix, on top of the 2 layers I wear beneath my drysuit is still loose.
