I used mine maybe for half a year, but they came unglued after the first two or three days on (and in) the water. The outer rubber sole and the neoprene cover material separate where the shoe breaks in the front, and from then on sand and gravel enter to no end.
I had three Aveto Semi jackets, and each and everyone of them had the same problem: the thin white membrane between the outer nylon and inner net material comes unglued both sides and eventually water will get into the jacket from there. Artistic changed the jackets twice without much trouble, but the damage is done... On the other hand, I have two paddle buddies who did NOT encounter this problem with their Aveto jackets (that's why I gave two stars for quality). I still wouldn't take one again.
This is simpy a very good jacket for a very good price, and I don't know what there is to improve. Having had troubles with three other jackets in as many years (always a problem of the membrane delaminating from the nylon under the arms / armpits) I am also happy about the rugged quality of the Evo cag. It's the best I ever bought and it costs less than half the price of the others. The parcel (int'l shipment) arrived in under 48 hours, by the way
