Im a kayaker and looking for a farmer john long wetsuit. Im 6, 225lbs, 34" waist, and a 45" chest. What size would you recommend.
The most important measurements any time you purchase a wetsuit or drysuit using the manufacturer's sizing charts will always be your waist and chest/bust measurements. The suit needs to fit your torso correctly in order to do its job properly. Keep in mind there is no such thing as a comfortable wetsuit on the surface. You want it to be snug, but not cut off circulation to your extremities. The more snug it is, the thinner the layer of water your body is heating. If it’s too loose you will remain warm for awhile, but eventually your body won't be able to keep up with the greater amount of water flowing through the suit and you'll wind up getting cold faster. After that your height is a secondary measurement. The manufacturers realize that generally speaking your boots and gloves can overlap slightly short arms and legs, or the diver can push or roll up longer sleeves and/or arms if need be. Weight is a measurement the diver can usually ignore. It really has little to no bearing what so ever on the sizing and fit of your suit. The manufacturers do not take into account muscle being more dense than fat, so based simply on fitness levels 2 people can be the exact same size but quite different in weight. This measurement should only be used if the person is literally on the fence between 2 sizes in all categories.
I wear a medium/large wet suit. Medium to short in the legs large to big in the waist. do you sell medium large or just whats listed? your prices are insanely fantastic and would hate to miss out on such a great deal. but then again if it dont fit ... err.
what is the difference between this "waterman" farmer john, and the standard farmer john? there is a $20 price difference.
You say it can be purchased as a set, so wheres the sets? Seriously.
Sold individually or as sets
With the ability to mix and match pieces, divers who choose one of these classic two-piece suits will discover they have several options for thermal protection on every dive. Worn together, the John and Jacket system gives a double layer of protection over the body’s core for the coldest conditions. For warm waters, wearing just the Step-in Jacket provides essential core warmth while maximizing mobility. Glued and sewn seams in the thicker suits provide toughness and water integrity, while flatlock stitching in the 3mm is durable and comfortable. High-quality zippers in the jackets and Velcro-style shoulder entry in the John and Jane insure simple donning and prolonged suit life. Pieces are sold individually or in sets so divers can mix suit thicknesses.
