Rating: Great fit - great product.
Reviewer: Peggy C.
Im a recreational diver, usually 2 - 4 dives/year in warm waters. I tend to get cold diving even with a shortie so this skin worked perfectly on our 5 dives in Hawaii to keep me just a little warmer so I could fully enjoy our dives!

Rating: surprizing quality for a skin
Reviewer: Andy Holden  -  View all my reviews
This is really more than I expected from a "Skin". It has the features and looks of a nice wet suite, just very thin so can serve the skin funtion when wearing under a suite or just protection when you dont need a wet suite.

Rating: Great warm water skin.
Reviewer: Nicholas B.
Bought this suit for both myself and my wife to take to St Lucia. We were very happy with them, especially for the price. Diving in water temps of 79-81F I may not have needed it for warmth but it was enough to keep my wife very comfortable and was nice for the added layer of protection. Would recommend it! Sizing seemed accurate, Im 61" and 185lbs, and the XL fit well.

Rating: comfortable but not much warmth
Reviewer: Robin S.
I believe the description said this was as warm as a 2mm wetsuit. I dont believe it is. I bought this for a trip with extensive snorkeling around the Turks and Caicos in Feb. I think the water temp was about 76. I was in the water for up to 1/2 hour repeatedly throughout several days and was quite chilled, not kept warm by the suit (and FYI I do have body fat - not a "skinny" girl). It was great comfortable sun protection though. I wore it alone without a wet suit over it.

The XS is REALLY small. I am within ALL the measurements for an XS according to the sizing chart, but I couldnt breath in an XS. I exchanged it for a Small, and it is perfect. So keep that in mind when ordering sizes.

Rating: Really NICE skin
Reviewer: Suzanne Holtzclaw
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 and happy I bought the larger size - he NEVER gets cold. We are happy with our purchase and will recommend to others.

This is a great product, very easy to put on and then easy to put on the wet suit. I like it so much that if I ever need to buy another one I would again get the same one. living in Spain I needed to pay tax on my item as it came from the US. however I could not find it anywhere in Europe. the thumb loops and foot straps are so well made and are a real help when putting the wet suit on. thanks Scuba for stocking this item, please feel free to use this letter in you promotions.

Reviewer: Jacqueline Dewald
Just returned from a 13 day trip to grand cayman and liked this dive skin- It is light and very easy to dry I wore it with a 3mm vest and was warm. The sizes are odd a large is a womans size 12. My husband ordered this suit and liked it except the seams are coming apart after 4 days. This product has some real promise, needs some quality control in order to have a lasting place in the market.

This is my second purchase of this suit. I teach swimming and this is great for the long days in the pool. This second one is for diving only. This suit is great in cold water it adds that extra insulation without the bulk and buoyancy. Makes it much easier to get a wetsuit on and off. Ive also used it on its own in the St. Lawrence in the summer and down south in the winter. The padded spine makes it very comfortable with dive gear.

Reviewer: Robin S.
Love my new jumpsuit! We went to Saba (near St. Martin) for a week in late July and there was a strict weight limit. It helped to have a light weight alternative to my 3 ml shorty. I was very comfortable with water temps in the 80 degree range. The jumpsuit dried quickly - a big help with daily dives. A friend and I bought the same suit and found it worked well with our different body types (both women). I bought 2 sizes smaller than the guide and it was about right.

Rating: Great Suit
Reviewer: Michelle S.
Bought this for the BF, and he LOVES it. Fits him great, has a spine pad and padded knees. Makes getting his wetsuit on so much easier (uses it under a 3mm or 7mm). Adds extra warmth without buoyancy. There are loops in the sleeves that allow you to keep the sleeves where they are supposed to be when putting it under another wetsuit. He says the inside is soft against his skin, and it is very flexible and allows him to dive unconfined. I can see Ill be getting one to dive BVI!

Rating: Great for warm water and protection
Reviewer: Jeff Reuter
Jeff R. 6-15-10 Great suit, great fit. We vacation in Mexico each year and I spend a lot of time snorkling and do some diving. I have a nerve problem in my legs and have trouble keeping them warm even in warm water conditions. Last year I purchased the lycra jumpsuit and it helped but not totally for my condition. This year I added the Polyolefin jumpsuit over the top of my lycra suit and it was perfect for diving even to 85ft. depths. I was totally comfortable, and warm and felt no restrictions in movement. Had some trouble with the kneepad stitching but is seems it was a factory problem that I sure has been solved. Sucba replaced the defective suit without hesitation and the service has been great. I would agree with most of the comments on sizing. Order for height rather than height and weight. There is plenty of stretch. Drying time seemed as fast with the Polyolefin suit as the lycra. I love both suits and would highly recommend this suit if your looking for comfort and additional warmth.

Rating: When in doubt, get the smaller size.
Reviewer: Peter S.
I purchased the Henderson 17oz Superior Polyolefin Jumpsuit to use snorkeling and under my wetsuit for additional warmth. Im 62, 220lbs, 47" chest, 37" waist and Im in pretty good shape. I purchased the 2XL and thought it was a little too large, but couldnt see going down another size considering the Henderson chart had XL up to 61" and 185. When in doubt, definitely go to the lower size, maybe even two sizes down. The quality of the suit is excellent.

I purchased this for my upcoming trip to Bonaire and used it during my pool lessons instead of the shorties. The temp in the pool was about what I expect Bonaire to be and it worked very nicely. It does run a little large in the shoulders and small in the legs if you have any shape so keep that in mind when ordering. Overall pretty good.

This is the SECOND time I have purchased this Jumpsuit. We dive mostly in the Turks & Caicos and I wore out my first one after years of diving. My wife and 2 daughters all own one of these for diving and love the fact that they add just enough warmth for multiple dives, but dont add buoyancy like a neopreme suit. Easy to get in and out of, drys quickly, and top quality construction. When all four of us are on the boat at the same time wearing these, our dive guides call us the "INCREDIBLES" ! David Robenalt

Rating: Kerrys review
Reviewer: Kerry S.
I think basically its a well made item. However, it was made for a mans figure and I am a female so it was way too large in the shoulders, plus I ordered a size too big so large all over too. I am actually a size 10 in wet suits so this never would have fit in any event. From now on I will not order anything over the Internet that needs to be tried on, unless I have already tried it on in a store and know it will fit. I finally decided on a wet suit instead and bought it at my local dive shop on a half price sale. The stores have become very competitive now.

I purchased the Henderson 17oz jumpsuit thinking it would be suitable for an upcoming dive trip to the Florida keys. It turned out to be more than suitable, it was perfect.

Reviewer: Melanie C.
I have bought the Henderson jumpsuit to add warmth to my 2/3mm wetsuit. I have used it twice, in Costa Rica, where you can meet cold and hot water in the same dive. It has turned to work perfectly for me (I am scared to get cold). My 2/3mm was so easy to fit in, above the jumpsuit, and it kept me warm between 2 dives as the wind was strong. It also dries very quick. I would recommend this jumpsuit with no hesitation.

Rating: Great Suit for tropical summer diving or snorkling
Reviewer: Scott Michael  -  View all my reviews
I usually dive the Caribbean twice a year. Once in the winter on a cruise with some friends in Jan wearing a skin and a 3mm jumpsuit and with our dive club in summer with a skin and a 3mm shorty. I wear my Henderson lycra skin for sunburn and scratch protection. With this skin, I can forgo the shorty wetsuit during the summer diving and still have a degree of warmth as well as protection from the sun and scratches. I would buy it again without hesitation. If I had known about it, I would probably bought it instead of the regular lycra skin and used it year-round.

Reviewer: Sandra T.  -  View all my reviews
This polyolefin was all I needed on my last trip to Cozumel in October. It was comfortable and certainly warm enough with my Henderson lycra skin underneath. I was able to dive with less weight and loved the freedom of not having on a wetsuit. It also dried quickly. I would suggest women order a size smaller since its a unisex and tends to run large.

The Henderson Polyolefin jumpsuit was light to carry and easy to get on and off. We were on boat in Galapagos where diving was not an option and suit was great for snorkeling - others were wearing 5 mm wet suits and were having difficulty with bouyancy and surface dives. Suits kept us warm, were easy to get on and off and allowed much more free diving.

Rating: Just what I was looking for.
Reviewer: evelyn C.  -  View all my reviews
I took the advice of the other reviewers and got one size smaller than the chart recommends and it fit perfectly. I am a 5’9” 180lb athletic woman with a little extra pudgy around the middle. I got the large. The skin looks good, feels good, easy to get on. I was surprised by the spine padding but in a good way. I wore it under a 3 mil wet suit on vacation in Costa Rica (Pacific Beach) and it made it very easy to take a damp wet suit off and on for potty breaks and such. I wear it under my 6mil dry suit here in Puget Sound with some socks and I am toasty warm and I could take 2lbs off my lead when using this skin instead of my polar fleece one-piece. This is a lot more comfortable to wear in between dives when the weather is nice too. Sand and stuff doesn’t stick to it like polar fleece and it breathes. It dries fast if it gets a little wet from my hair between dives. Love it!

My husband and I purchased our skins just before our trip to Kona, and we both agree that theyre now our favorite piece of dive/snorkel gear. Theyre super easy to slip on, they dry quickly, they make putting on wet suits a breeze, they look good, and they provide just the right amount of warmth to keep you comfortable for hours of snorkeling and diving (and you dont have to worry about getting sunburned!).

I ordered three of these-one for myself (age 60 female 53"), one for my mom age 80 (56 female) neither of us in the best of shape figure- wise, and one for my 84 year father. My husband and I dived 2-3 times a day for two weeks in Caribbean water 78-82 at surface, 60s at depth. My parents in same conditions snorkeled. All were very happy with the comfort-warmth and ease of putting on. They dried much faster than our polarteck suits, and only a bit slower than our skins. We had one 1 mil neoprene suit to compare it with- this was much more stretchy and comfortable, and dried faster. For the price, I dont think there is a better suit and we have been diving for 27 years so I have a few to compare it with

Rating: Good but not Great
Reviewer: Tom B.
The Henderson Jumpsuit fit great, was easy to get on and off and provided similar warmth to that of a 2mm wetsuit. It was also nice that it had basically neutral buoyancy which allowed me to reduce my weight by about 2 lbs. Last week I used this wetsuit to dive in the waters around Curacao. I found that it was still a bit too warm for my tastes and was able to survive with a rash guard most of the trip. I used the jumpsuit only for night dives or when I got to my third or fourth dive during a day. My one complaint is that the jumpsuit seems to be more susceptible to pilling when compared to a typical wetsuit. After one use, the shoulders showed noticeable wear from my BCD. I am not sure if this was due to rubbing of my BCD with the jumpsuit or maybe Velcro. I did realized that I had some Velcro on my BCD that was not properly adjusted that could have caused this.

Reviewer: Fred W.  -  View all my reviews
The suit probably wont really replace a 2mm suit, but it is warmer than your average skin. It is very comfortable, although cut a little high in the neck for my taste. Forget the size chart. At 510" and 230 pounds, I should have bought a 3XL. Reading the reviews, I ordered the 2XL and it was too big, so I returned it for an XL. I considered returning it for a L, but decided not to. You probably want to order based on height on the chart and forget weight. It stretches enough to fit most body shapes and since it is a not laminated material it shouldnt cause it any problems.

I recently purchased this Polyolefin jumpsuit for a trip to St. Maartin and it worked great. The water temps were in the high 70s/low 80s and the suit provided plenty of warmth without the buoyancy of neoprene wet suit. It was also handy when we jumped in on top of a bunch of jellies - no stings! I was planning on buying a 5mm but am going to try this under my 3mm first. Great suit and a great value.

Reviewer: Zach T.
Im using this suit as an extra layer under a pinnacle "semi-dry" 7mil suit. The 7mil never fit perfectly, and Ive been getting cold in the north atlantic water (40s and 50s at depth usually). This jumpsuit completely changed my diving experience - Im much warmer now, actually to the point of being comfortable. Another benefit is that the wet suit slides on easily now over the jumpsuit fabric (even when wet). My only complaint is that the front zipper only comes down to about the belly button level. This is very inconvenient if youre male and trying to use the head...

Rating: My experiance with Henderson Polyolefin Jumpsuit
Reviewer: Robert Partridge
I found the suit to be very easy to put on and comfortable to wear, as opposed to neoprene suits. It protected me from being stung by sea life almost as well as neoprene suits. Its tendency to pill, when exposed to velcro was about the same as neoprene. When hung up to dry it tended to dry very quickly. For added warmth I suggest wearing a thermal undershirt inside the suit. Robert Partridge April 16/08.

Rating: Best for warm water
Reviewer: Matti S.  -  View all my reviews
This is an excellent dive skin, best I have tried. Its a little more substantial than the old version. Polyolefin feels better on (my) skin in and out of water than lycra and gives more abrasion protection. It also works great with a light wetsuit jacket or shorty, giving a little more warmth and a lot more protection against sun, rocks and critters. Also, no logos that peel off in water like in some lycras.

Rating: Great Dive Skin
Reviewer: Dina K.  -  View all my reviews
I am very pleased with this dive skin. The spine pad is not just on the spine, it is also extended across the lower back allowing for more comfort from the tanks. The knee pads are also a plus. Generally one does not come into contact with coral or other sea life, however there is always that occasional event, and it is a great added protection. The skin also kept me warm, as I tend to get cold fast. I recomend this product for all divers. I was also surprised with the very reasonable price.

Product was as described,light weight and as a 2xxer the fit is great. Liked the padding features especially the back protection from the tank. Tested the product in our local pool Off to Mexico tomorrow for sea trials at the reef at Cabo Pulmo and then to Gordo Bank with the Hammer Head sharks.

Reviewer: Gary B.
Just came back from three 100 dives off NC coast using the Henderson 17 oz superior polyolefin jumpsuit. Getting older hasnt dampened my love of diving, but it has made me less tolerant of being cold at depth. This skin added much more warmth than my previous thin skin. It worked well under my shortie. I am 61" and weigh #195. I needed the X-Large size (had to return a large), so be generous with the sizing.

bought this skin as a gift for a friend i was diving with-she loved it. shes a bit cold-blooded & wore it under her wetsuit. it made for easy on & easy off of the wetsuit & kept her warm. i noticed it has extra cushion in the knee areas when she was wearing it.

Reviewer: Forest Rothchild
Now I am a big guy that unfortunately has a reaction to neoprene. But give to Henderson to make a suit that offers enough protection that I can where this as base layer under my wet suit or alone in the warmer waters and not have a break out. The spine padding is a nice touch and the suit fits great.

Rating: The Best Skin!
Reviewer: Tolen May
I really like this product - its really heavy for a skin and you dont feel like youre in a skimpy little lycra skin (which I always feel looks kinda stupid when Im wearing one). Its a great for warm water diving where you dont really need a wetsuit but dont want to dive in your shorts. The inside is nice and fuzzy and the spine pad and knee pads are really nice features. I wanted somthing heavier than a skin but lighter than a wetsuit - I think this fills the bill.

This wetsuit was not my first choice but I have been pleased with it and like it mych better after using it several times. I wish it was offerred in more colors. It is easy to put on and take off. It was the perfect suit for my most recent dive in Cayman - not too hot or too cold. It is fairly priced. I would purchase it again - especially if other colors were offered.

Rating: "Fit" to perform
Reviewer: Eric Krichbaum
Dive skin was very comfortable and fit well - qualified later. Foot straps helped to keep the legs in place. Easy to put on. I used in 84 degree water for protection. No problem with warmth. Slight wear in shoulder area from BC. Dries quickly. Size chart for me was not accurate (my wife bought one and the chart matched her measurements better). Im 6 3", 208 lbs, 43" chest, 37" waist, shirt: 16" x 35" Per size chart I should use XXL. Bought one - would have had to be 30 lbs heavier to fit. Returned for XL - fit was still loose. Neck was very loose. Bought Large - fit great. Returned XL.

I have the jump suit in size medium since 1 year and use it practically daily for swimming. It is excellent and I am very happy with it. Unfortunately you do not make the perfect size for me and I would like to know what the possibilities are to do something for that. I reordered it recently in a size large, but according to my son, who is an expert wind surfer, it did not fit tightly enough. Your service is excellent and I am glad to know about your company from my son. Brigitte Krauss

Perfect for instruction in the pool. Just enough protection to keep you warm, but not so much that you get hot. I wear it under a 7mm wetsuit for cold water diving and it provides that extra bit of protection you can sometimes need. Not to mention how easy it makes getting in and out of heavy wetsuits. And it dries super-fast too.

I used the jumpsuit as a liner to a 7mm wet suit on a recent dive trip to Catalina. My group made one night dive and six day dives. I was surprised at how comfortable my dives were in the 54-57 degree water. (The others in my group wore dry suits) I highly recommend this suit/liner for anyone that dives in what I consider cold water.

Spent 20 yrs slapping on SPF 45 and whining about bits I missed until I bought this skin. Snorkeled for several hours every day for a week without any burn. Also went body surfing for a day when everyone else got jelly fish stings and had full protection. Well made and generously sized, I am 60", 220lbs and bought XXL might have been ok with XL.

Reviewer: Charles B.  -  View all my reviews
This fit my petite wife great. The added warmth was just enough to let her enjoy snorkeling in 78 degree water for over an hour. Normally she chills out after 30 minutes. Easy to put on, made her look good too and protected her from wind on the beach afterwards. Great investment for someone who wouldnt wear a 2mil neoprene suit because of the bulk, seemed to give the same warmth.

Nice fit and finish. Xtra features including padding in the back and knees much appreciated. Front zipper easy to work. Sharp looking on women. Somewhat difficult to remove when wet, but easy enough to take off in reverse and turn back right side after off. Very comfortable for 80-85 degree water off Costa Rica this past February.

Reviewer: Justin Stuart  -  View all my reviews
I really like my polyolefin jumpsuit. I wear it underneath my 7mm wetsuit and it definitely adds a level of insulation but also makes donning and doffing the wetsuit much easier, even when wet. and on days that are very warm, you can just wear the jumpsuit for skin protection. highly recommend this product for use as separate layer or as another layer of insulation under your current suit.
