Henderson

 

Henderson Aquatics was founded by business partners Everett Edmund and Patrick Madison. Both men had also been partners in the marine industry. “Henderson” the business and brand was soon formed and named after the Henderson boatyard located in Port Elizabeth, NJ where the original wetsuit factory was located. Everett Edmund patented the original zip on wetsuit which became standard issue by the US Navy and US Coast Guard. The company was the first to recognize women in diving by creating a full line of suits that offered color and style and soon appeared in the pages of magazines such as Elle and Cosmo. Legendary guitarist Jerry Garcia of “Grateful Dead” fame was an avid Scuba Diver and soon collaborated on a Garcia Signature line of Henderson wetsuits. The Garcia line included a new “Trilaminate” neutral buoyancy material developed by Henderson. During the 1990′s Henderson expanded into markets outside the Sport Diving market, producing it’s first line of surfing wetsuits called “Surf East." Henderson also produced the first wetsuit used for Triathlon competition in 1990.

Henderson Introduced Gold Core Technology, (ultra warm skin -in wetsuit) Hyperstretch (the first ultra stretch wetsuit) Microprene (.5mm wetsuits) Insta Dry (the first wetsuit that dried inside and out in minutes) Hyperflex Wetsuits a new surf brand emerged in early 2002 with a renewed focus on the surf wetsuit market.


Henderson wetsuits, gloves, and boots use high-quality materials like Microprene 2 and Thermoprene. Microprene 2 is an ultra thin, super stretch neoprene that will provide the comfort and freedom of movement found in a Hot Skin dive skin but with the warmth and durability that Skins and fleece can’t provide. Thermoprene delivers quality and performance a step above Henderson Premium Neoprene, offering 75% more stretch and featuring glued and sewn seams on all suits. All jumpsuits feature integrated spine pads and zipper seals as well as Freedom flex knee pads.

 

Aqualock is a revolutionary wetsuit system design is the first of its kind to offer interlocking wetsuit wrists, ankles and neck openings, which are designed specifically to mate with interlocking Aqua Lock hoods, boots and gloves to form a nearly impenetrable seal which minimizes cold water entry into the Aqua Lock ensemble. The Aqua Lock® wetsuits offer over 250% stretch for unsurpassed comfort and a superior fit.

Henderson 7mm Aqua Lock Hyperstretch Diving Gloves Reviews

Henderson 7mm Aqua Lock Hyperstretch Diving Gloves Reviews

Reviewer: Larry Chin on 1/13/2014

Expensive but Great Gloves for Cold Water - I am a golf ball diver, diving 6-10 hrs/day, 4 days a week. I have spent a small fortune in various gloves looking for something to keep my hands warm in low 50 deg water. The Hendersons are the best, they have kept my hands warm and functional even during 3hr+ dives. I do not have a Aqua Lock system on my wetsuit sleeve. I do wrap a 1.5" velcro strap or 4" wrap around the proximal opening of the glove to restrict cold water flushing in and out of the glove (this is actually minimal on these gloves, but quit substantial on others)...esp important on extended dives...when working on hookah, I am usually down for several hours/dive. On sizing, I typically wear a large, but on these I... View Full Review

Henderson 3mm Thermoprene Front Zip Shorty Wetsuit Reviews

Reviewer: Vahe Petrossian on 9/20/2009

Easy access and comfortable - i found the front entry zip access convenient. the thermoprene is a good combination of flexibility and warmth. i own the henderson 5mm hyperstretch too and the comfort between the 3mm thermoprene and the 5mm hyperstretch are on par. i bought the shorty for snorkeling and swimming in hawaii. i typically go to the windward side like kailua beach and usually during the winter months, so a shorty with some thermal protection will be great. in the past i used rash guards only, but with the wind, a wet rash guard gets very cold. overall henderson is a great brand for wetsuits. you cant go wrong with them. they are also one of the few brands with a good line of kids wetsuits too. my...

Reviewer: Joan L. on 9/15/2013

comfortable warm wet suit - I love my new wetsuit. I just used this wet suit to dive in a range of water temperatures 80 degress F to 72 degrees and i was never cold. The " lock" feature at the wrists and ankles worked great and the soft inside was so very comfortable. Even when putting it on for the 4th dive of the day, 10 days in a row I looked forward to wearing it. The ankle and wrist area do keep damp with repeated dives but even when putting on damp it was super comfortable and you warmed up immediately after zipping in. It made my trip to Indosesia unforgettable! I am so glad I purchased it. I have worn 4 other 5-7 mm wetsuits even the one that is made just for your body and this by far has been the best warm...

Henderson Lycra Dive Skin Jumpsuit Reviews

Reviewer: James G. on 7/1/2014

Henderson Lycra Dive Skin Jumpsuit - I like this jumpsuit a lot. However, the tallest size is advertised to fit up to 62". I am 64" and weigh 170 pounds (tall and skinny). A sales rep in the store told me over the phone to buy the size Large. I tried both the Large and the X-Large, and they were both too short. The 2X-Large turned out to be pretty darned good. I think a taller version might have been a little better, but I was very happy with the 2XL as it stretched to fit my height. I used it every day for a week of snorkeling and swimming and was very happy to have it.

Henderson 8/7mm Thermoprene Front Zip Semi Dry Wetsuit with Attached Hood Reviews

Reviewer: Barry S. on 6/10/2013

Very comfortable and warm - Hello - Im new to scuba here in the Northeast. Needed a minimum of 7mm suit plus wanted to have easy entry/exit so I would not need anyones help with the zipper. This suit looks and feels great - very comfortable, true to size chart, extremely warm and easy to get on or off by yourself. Yes - of course water gets into a semi dry wetsuit - but because of the neck, wrist and ankle seals - you really dont get much flushing of new water so you feel very warm and comfortable. While taking my open water cert dives in 53 degree water a few weeks ago - the instructors were freezing in their 7mm wet suits but I was nice and comfy. The 10 year warranty is great for peace of mind on getting the... View Full Review

Reviewer: Grant Macdonald on 8/2/2014

Simple but effective - This is a simple product but nonetheless Im very happy with it. I usually only scuba dive but on a recent trip we did some snorkeling and I didnt want to get my scalp sunburned. The hood was great for this and I found it to be a good fit and I didnt notice it when I was in the water. Easy to rinse out and quick to dry and adds nothing to luggage (size and weight). Something I didnt even think of that was an added benefit was that my mask strap didnt pull out any of my hair, I dont have much left :-).

Aqualock review - Simply amazing "locking" system. As much as the choice and fit of a wetsuit is a personal thing, the aqua-lock system delivers. Theres no slippage of gloves, boots or hood giving a snug and not slack feeling of security and comfort. Loads of sizing possibilities meant I was able to choose a wetsuit that fit me personally...oh, and 7mm - VERY warm! I dive at altitude and in glacial waters quite comfortably with Hendersons 7mm suit.

Henderson 17oz Superior Polyolefin Dive Skin Jumpsuit Reviews

Reviewer: Suzanne Holtzclaw on 1/3/2013

Really NICE skin - Ordered this to take on trips to have the option for additional warmth if needed or less buoyant option when it is warmer. Used it the first time as additional layer when on a snorkel tour with manatee. We were in 74 degree water (35 degree air temp) for about 4 hours. I was pretty comfortable for a very long time and give credit to adding the jumpsuit to the mix. I saw where others commented that you need to order the next larger size. I am 58" and weigh about 130lbs and got the medium. It is a little tight initially and I probably should have purchased the large. I bought my husband the 2xl. He wears a Large shirt but has issues with things tight around his neck. He was very comfortable... View Full Review

Reviewer: Frank Kaufman on 3/8/2014

wet suit review - I recently purchased this wet suit because I have back and knee problems and wanted a wet suit that was easy to don and take off. I used this wet suit in Grand Cayman in February 2014 and was so happy with it. It not only kept me warm but was also comfortable and easy to take off. I am 6ft tall and weigh 180lbs and ordered the x-large suit which fit perfectly!! I would highly recommend this suit for warm water diving. It met all of my expectations!!!!
