Rating: Good construction. Value for $$$
Reviewer: Ke Heam Peh
Have not tried the outfit in the waters yet. But did put it on and it is comfy and snuggly. Feel and looks to be a quality product. Except, there seems to be a smell from the outfit. Maybe cause is still very new.

Rating: Fits like a glove
Reviewer: Mark R.
The Mares 205mm Reef Shorty Wetsuit I recently purchased earned every bit of the 5 star rating I have given it. I try to stay away from ordering fitted items online because more times than not they dont fit and back they go. From the first time I tried it on to the time I used my new wetsuit I was throughly impressed! Excellent fit and very comfortable to wear. I would give a definite thumbs up review to anyone that wanted to purchase this item, you wouldnt be disappointed.

Rating: Mares 2.5 mm Shorty
Reviewer: Julie J.  -  View all my reviews
Excellent shorty, well constructed. Like the Velcro tab allowing wearer to hook the zipper pull to the base of the zipper. This is my first Mares wetsuit. Runs just a little smaller than same size in the Henderson line. But I followed Mares sizing guidelines and it does fit. Overall very happy with the purchase and price and Scuba.com was great at quick delivery.

Rating: great carribean wetsuit
Reviewer: Duane Warner
Just used it for the first time in Curacao, perfect for the warm waters. Fits exactly as their sizing chart indicates ( Im 6 and 210 and the XL was great)! Cant go wrong for the cost, comfort, and feel of this.

Rating: Mares 2.5mm Tropic Shorty.:
Reviewer: Dennis M.  -  View all my reviews
This shorty is great....and it looks good on..It feels a little more strechy than the normal shorty which is probably why it is so comfortable..As a male diver, I think this shorty works great in warm or cool water where you want just a little more protection than a rash guard.

Rating: Mares 2.5 Tropical Shorty
Reviewer: Phillip Brown  -  View all my reviews
I received this within a week after ordering. It looks great, and the price was right. I will be diving the week of December 14th so at this time I dont know how well it works or fits. I also have like most divers several full wetsuits, and a top half of a Farmer Johns that is great especially since the zipper is in the front.

Rating: excellent wetsuit for price!
Reviewer: Michael W.
I purchased this shorty wetsuit for a recent diving trip to the Bahamas, and was well pleased with the fit and quality of it. I checked the reviews and saw the recommendation was to figure the sizes ran a little snug and bought accordingly, and it was an excellent fit. If anyone is in the market for a economical 2.5 shorty wetsuit, I would have to say this one is tough to beat.

Rating: Great suit
Reviewer: Richard H.
Bought it for a trip to Aruba and it was perfect. Good quality, easy on/off, very comfortable, just right for the 83 degree waters. Just pulled it down to the waist between dives to stay cool. Held up very well after 8 dives. I wear a rash guard with it as I tend to get a little burn under the arms but I get that with all suits.

Rating: 2.5mm Tropic Shorty. Black/Grey/Red Mens 2XLarge
Reviewer: Bruce Sharp
The suite is very well constructed and as described with the excepting that the size chart runs a little small. I wear a 2X from two different vendors but the 2X from Mares is a bit snug. Other then that I am very satisfied with the price and quality of the product

This is a great, shorty in 2.5 mm. I bought it for my son to use during his pool work for his open water certification. It looks great and is very well made. I am extremely happy with the quality and the price.

Rating: Great Suit
Reviewer: Robert DiPadova Jr  -  View all my reviews
I purchased this suit to be used for going in the water at Marathas Vineyard. The suit was great offering the warmth and flexibility. One thing to note is the sizing. I was not sure what size to get but a quick phone call to a SCUBA instructor gave me all of the information I needed. They said that Mares sizes fall on the smaller side of their sizing chart. I fell in the middle of the L size chart. After telling him all of my size information he recommended going with the XL. This was some great advice as the XL fit like a wet suit is supposed to. If I had gone with the L it would have been way to tight. So make sure to order a size up or if you are in doubt a quick call to a SCUBA rep will get you all the help you need.
