Rating: Henderson Lycra Dive Skin
Reviewer: Thomas D.
Have used a number of other lycra dive skins,mainly under my wetsuit. Aids in both getting into and out of a neoprene dive suit. Decided to try the Henderson Lycra Dive Skin, works well, adds a layer of warmth. The quality is excellent,the front zip makes it easy to get into and out off as opposed to a rear zip. Have had no problems with it and would recommend it to anyone else.

Reviewer: Carol Morris
I am really impressed with the quality & comfort of this skin. It exactly what I need for an upcoming trip. I debated between the small and xsmall and decided to go with with xs. Ive learned from experience that when in doubt go smaller in a dive suit. It fits well and feels great.

Rating: Henderson Lycra Dive Skin Jumpsuit
Reviewer: James G.
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.

Got this suit mostly for sun and jellyfish protection. Havent got it wet yet but the quality and the fit are good. Easy on and off with the big front zip. I went up a size from the size chart specs and it is still snug but feels and looks good.

Rating: Nice skin
Reviewer: Michael Dyer
Wear it under my 5 mm wetsuit to aid in putting it on and taking off. Seems to help slightly. I cant really tell if it adds any warmth but at least your a little more "covered up" when donning your wetsuit or removing it. They seem to run a little small as the medium is pretty tight length wise (height) on me and I am 510. Wish the zipper went a little lower for when nature calls to make things easier.

Reviewer: Henry L.  -  View all my reviews
This is my second skin. I recently lost 70 pounds and had to down size. I can not recommend strongly enough the quality and superior fit of these dive suits. I do all my diving in tropical water and I need protection from the sun and sometimes small Jelly-fish. This dive suit is long lasting durable suit made with quality materials. I spear fish and it is light weight and streamlines me to move quickly through the water. If you are going snorkeling or spearfishing in warm water look no further. I would recommend to a friend, family, member, or complete stranger with confidence.

Rating: Great suit, Didnt work for my intended purpose
Reviewer: Maureen Froyum
I wanted something under my semi-dry suit as an extra layer for warmth with the cold waters of diving Catalina. This is a great suit fits snugly but didnt work for warmth. I think because of the special design of a semi dry suit the skin didnt allow the water traps in my suit to stay warm. Anyways I will use it for warm water diving, well made and true to size

Rating: Glad I had it!
Reviewer: Tyler H.
Just spent a week diving and I wore my skin on every dive, all 22 of them. It was cooler than expected so I rented a wetsuit as well. With this dive skin, I had no problems getting in and out of my wet/damp/too small wetsuit. I am a big guy (6/ 300#) and the 5x was a size I have never worn before (usually a 2-3x guy). But the sizing chart was accurate and this was the right size for me. And when several people on our boat got hit by jellyfish, I was glad I had my dive skin!

We ordered two of these skins...one for my husband and one for me. He is tall and skinny and the XL fit him great. I ordered the medium and liked the fit as well. We went diving in the Bahamas and the skins were perfect for the water temperature. They also protect your skin from belts on tanks, etc. For the price, I highly recommend these skins.

The Henderson Dive Skin makes getting into my wet suit as easy or easier as getting dressed in street clothes. I love the sleekness of the lycra and it is certainly more comfortable than skipping using a dive skin, not to mention the extra warmth. I am quite pleased and will get another one when necessary.

Well made and as advertised. I like Pink so there arent a lot of options out there, this is a nice looking suit. You need to understand that this is just a skin - very light, great for wearing before a dive and helps get your full wetsuit on, but adds very little protection.

I had purchased one in Cozumel and I bought an extra small and thought this was a little tight, although it did help with insulating from cooler waters.

Rating: Excellent Suit for Sun Coverage
Reviewer: Alice K.
I bought the Henderson Lycra suit to wear while snorkeling and swimming in Vieques to protect myself from the sun. The suit did an excellent job in sun protection. I highly recommend it for this purpose. As long as the suit is at least slightly damp it does not feel hot to wear on a tropical beach. I found the sizing to be a bit on the small side. I ended up wearing a large and I am 57" and 140 lbs.

Rating: Excellent UV shield
Reviewer: Katherine W.
My primary purpose for purchasing the suit was the UV protection. After already having one carcinoma removed and hoping to avoid further skin cancer, I knew Id need full body protection while spending 2 days snorkeling off the cayes in Belize. The Henderson suit fit well, I got no sun damage at all, and the convenient loop in the sleeve was a handy bonus for attaching my underwater Olympus camera, which stashed neatly in the lycra sleeve for getting in and out of the boat, too. And once the wind picked up in the afternoon, I was warm and comfortable for the boat ride back while everyone else shivered!

The Henderson suit was comfortable and made getting my wetsuit on a breeze. I did notice that anytime the suit touched velcro it caused small tears(only surface) on the material. Just be careful not to expose it to velcro and the suit works great for a little added insulation and helping get your wetsuit on easy. The suit is also comfortable to wear between dives as well.

Rating: So glad I found this!
Reviewer: Andrea Keely  -  View all my reviews
My sister talked me into getting the Henderson lycra "skin" suit and Im so glad she did. We were planning to go snorkeling at Cozumel over the winter holidays. We both ordered them online. I figured shed order the blue stripe, so I ordered the yellow. She lives in Florida, I live in Washington-and we both had them in 3 days time by standard delivery.The size is true to fit.The arms and legs are long enough and would easily scrunch up for a short person.It was hot outside but we didnt notice any added discomfort while wearing the suits.Theyre feather light. The sleeves and legs stayed down even without using the stirrups and finger bands.Theyre form-fitting, but as a woman in a foreign place I felt more comfortable knowing my body was concealed from prying eyes, unlike the women wearing swimsuits.We wore them for 12 hours in total comfort until we got back to our hotel. We rinsed them out and they were dry in an hour.They take up less room than a shirt in your suitcase. Andi Keely Tacoma, Wa

Rating: Makes it easy to slip into my wetsuit while keeping off the sun
Reviewer: Scott Michael  -  View all my reviews
This skin replaced an Akona skin. That skin was OK, but the Henderson skin is much slicker and helps me wiggle into the wetsuit. The front zipper is also much more convenient than the Akonas leashed back zipper. On a warm day with the wetsuit top pulled back, the wet Henderson skin allows you to cool off in even a slight breeze while keeping the sun off your skin.

Rating: Best Skin Ive used yet
Reviewer: Scott Michael  -  View all my reviews
The real reason I use a skin is to help me slip into a wetsuit and to provide sunburn protection between dives. I used an Akona skin which was fine for sunscreen protection but it zips in back which means you need help to don and doff it. The nylon/lycra composition of the Henderson skin is much slicker than the Akona making it easier to wiggle into a wet or dry wetsuit. With the front zipper, you can peel the top of your wetsuit down and unzip the front of the skin. The wet skin retains water and cools you off better than bare skin if there is even a slight breeze. The only difference I can see between this skin and Hendersons more expensive skin is the decoration on the trim, but I may be mistaken. Any way I am sold on this skin which was cheaper than the Akona to boot.

Rating: Henderson Lycra Dive Skin
Reviewer: Donald A. Dutcher
I bought this suit for Cozumel and used it during the first week of October with the water temperature in the mid 80s. The skin provides some thermal protection, but not much. I wore it mainly as a protective layer to guard against chaffing. Construction wise, the suit is what you expect of Henderson quality. I got the black with blue stripes on the sleeves. Looks a bit like Hoopers wetsuit in Jaws. BOTTOM LINE: Good purchase for warmer waters. If you are naturally cold blooded, Id look for a 3mm wetsuit. Could be good under a wetsuit as well.

Henderson skin was lightweight to pack, easy to put on, easy to take off without assistance. Protected me from sunburn and cool water temperatures as promised. I snorkeled in the Galapagos Islands for a week without difficulty. The water temperatures were between 67 and 73 degrees. Drys quickly and rolls up for easy packing. Size chart was generous.

Rating: parasite protection
Reviewer: Joan S.
This is a comfortable suit for swimming in the LI Sound in parasite season. I received good protection as evidenced by problem on my neck and scalp, the uncovered areas. I also think the customer service is excellent in that I would have ordered the wrong size.

Rating: henderson Lycra suit
Reviewer: Doreen T.
This was my first Scuba.com purchase. I am very impressed with the service I received. Thanks to the "pro" on the telephone, my suit is the perfect size. The colour is exactly as pictured and the suit gives me the protection I am looking for. Too bad the "Henderson" logo is not just screen printed on the suit! but that is such a minor detail! Great suit and a great price....

Reviewer: Isabel P.
Really great product-thick,stretchy,comfy,flattering. Customer service is excellent. They stand behind their goods. Price was right, and I shopped around. I am 59" and thin, and the small was a bit too short in my LONG torso, but would have fit otherwise. They kindly and quickly exchanged it for a Med.(it fit) which arrived in time for my trip. \ Isabel T

Rating: Great product
Reviewer: Richard P E.  -  View all my reviews
This suit fit well, and was true to the sizing chart. It is perfect for dives where youd rather be in a swimsuit and t-shirt, but still want some manner of protection. I dont think it will help with a sting or serious scrape, for minor scrapes, it should be useful.

Reviewer: Martin F.  -  View all my reviews
I bought 3 suits in the SMALL size for my son to use while diving. We just returned from a 2 week trip to Bonaire. He found the suits comfortable, form fitting and enjoyed using them alone without a wet suit. The material stretched well and the zipper worked every time. Caring for this suit is very easy. It dries fairly quickly which is a bonus for multiple dives. I can recommend it without reservation. Marty Feldman

Rating: Great Suit Would buy again
Reviewer: Michael K.
I puchased this suite to make it easier to get into my wetsuit. It did that but it also kept me cooler when out of the water. Sizing chart was right on and I would tell anyone that asked that it was a good buy.

Rating: henderson lyrca suit revew
Reviewer: Francis Z.
excellent suit, soft material was very comfortable and the fit was perfect, quality zipper closures ensured easy on/off this suit has been used for long swim workouts, in addition to snorkeling and shallow reef dives in warm water, if you are looking for a durable comfortable suit for warm water or pool swims this is ideal likewise, this suit as worn underneath a regular 7mm wetsuit, it greatly aided the donning of the wetsuit, and added addtional warmth

Reviewer: SHANE STAPLEY  -  View all my reviews
At first I was leary of this products quality because of its low cost, but after purchasing and using this product I can highly recommend it. It is a comfortable, durable and great looking garment. After 11 boat dives and 6 shore dives in Bonaire and repeated rinsing and drying it shows absolutely no sign of wear and tear. Shane Stapley, Chicago

Rating: Nice suit - great fit
Reviewer: Dennis Velco  -  View all my reviews
This is a great buy and great value. Ive seen knock off / no brands on eBay going for about the same price. They dont come with Scub.coms service and Hendersons warranty. Its good to know that if the quality suit does have a problem both Scuba.com and Henderson will fix it.

Reviewer: Hallie H.  -  View all my reviews
This dive skin was wonderful. Lightweight and comfortable, it keeps you slightly warm and sunburn-free while snorkeling for hours. It also protects from jellyfish and scraped knees and elbows in the shallows. I wore it under a shorty wetsuit on long outings and by itself for shorter ones. Highly recommend!

Rating: great suit
Reviewer: Margaret W.
I ordered the lycra suit recently for our snorkeling trip to the Cayman Islands. It was perfect for me..I could stay in the water twice as long as I had in the past.The suit dries very quickly and packs small..Cant wait to go and use it again!

Rating: Great Skin at a Good Price
Reviewer: Linda M.  -  View all my reviews
I originally bought this skin to wear under my wetsuit, but have found that more often I wear it alone in warm water diving. It fits great, except the arms are a little long for me. Keeps me plenty warm, dries fast, takes up very little room in the suitcase. Great Product.

Rating: Loved it!
Reviewer: Ann C.  -  View all my reviews
This suit was perfect for me...not as thick as some of the other skins. I was diving in Polynesia so the water was warm & it provided just enough insulation to make the stay under very comfortable. I plan to use it CA too when I dont want the bulk of a wetsuit while surfing or boogie boarding. The yellow & black color combination on it is very fetching too.

Rating: Skin the Best
Reviewer: Carol J. F.
This skin is wonderful! It saved me from the worries of a sunburn yet was not hot to wear even in the Florida Keys! I wore this skin on several occasions while out trapping lobster and never experienced any discomfort nor had to concern myself with getting sunburned even on one day when we were out from 9 a.m. until about 5 p.m.. I would highly recommend this superior quality product. Thanks for keeping me and my "skin" safe from sun damage! Carol J. Frady

Rating: I like it!
Reviewer: Sharon S.
i am not your typical buyer, i would think. i am 60, not bad looking and had lost some weight but i knew that a regular bathing suit wouldnt look that good. things have sagged and such. so i bought this suit with the idea that it would give me some warmth and also allow a fairly ok figure to look its best. it is long sleeved and long legged and zipps up the front and is light weight. it dries quickly and sand just s off it in no time. it had its first outing in hawaii with my husband. i think i turned a few heads as most everyone else was nearly naked. and i think i looked good. and i was toasty and comfortable and had good movement. so, i say it is a good little suit. wore it today on a california beach. no sun burn to worry about. i like it!

Reviewer: Sara S.  -  View all my reviews
I love this suit! It is so comfortable and very true to size. It is also great looking. My 7 ml wetsuit literally slipped on over this wonderful Henderson lycra suit - typically I had to yank at it and work up a sweat just getting ready - this suit exceeded my expectations.

The Lycra suit makes putting on your wet suit so much easyer, mostly after its wet, it allows your wet-wet suit to slip on with out sticking to you, only set back...make my love handles stick out :-) David

Rating: Suits me
Reviewer: Robert Berggren
I bought this suit to wear as protection from the harsh Las Vegas sun. I swim laps in a outdoor pool and it gives good protection. I can tell when I compare my hands and feet with my arms and legs. The mostly black area gives the best protection. The yellow decorative stripe along the arms and across the shoulders is less protective. I can tell by the darker stripe I have in that area. Ive had the suit for about six weeks now and it shows no sign of unraveling or fading. I rinse it in the sink after each use and it quickly drips dry. I Im looking forward to taking it on my next dive trip.
