I am going to college at UNCW this fall and I love paddle boarding, buggy boarding, and would like to attempt to learn how to surf. I am looking for a wetsuit that will keep me warm in the cooler months (October,march,April ) and also be comfortable and flattering.
Hi, I am looking for a budget friendly wetsuit for surfing, in waters of c. 5-15degrees celsius. And I want to avoid getting cold, even after 4 hours of surf. Is this good enough or would I need thicker and could that get too warm in the sun as well? Cheers
Im going thru chemo and they place a pick line in my arm. The doctor doesnt want me to get my arm wet, but I love kayaking, paddle boarding and Im attempting to surf. Will this be a good choice to stay dry? or is there anything else that will be better for me? Thanks,
Hi, Also a question about which size to choose, as I am 63" and fairly thin: Waist: 34" Chest: 39" Weight: 175pounds Cheers
The waist and chest are always going to be your 2 most important measurements with height being the next after those. Weight is typically only useful for tipping the scales one way or another between sizes. Based on your sizing, I'd put you into a size Medium.
Re: Ocean Quest 7 mm I will be diving and snorkling in Penobscot Bay ME in waters that vary from 40 degrees to 50 degrees. I believe that this suit would be appropriate. Am I correct. Secondly, are booties and gloves the same thickness? Will 7mm still allow me flexibility to swim freely. John Maher
darrick, thanks. what size should i get? 63" height, 36" chest, 36" waist (i think), 170 lbs. the current wetsuit size only goes through a womens large so im not sure if that will fit an xl may be too long?
Hi, my husband and I would like to extend our swimming season outdoors, in our pool, for health reasons. Someone suggested wetsuit, and we know its not what people usually use them for. Would you comment on that please? Water temp is never less then 40F and outdoor is around 40-50. Very much looking forward to your answer.Thanks!
I have an outdoor lap pool. I want a wetsuit that will keep me warm in water from 50-70 degrees. I do the side stroke and swim 600 yards daily. I have been told the 7mm wetsuit would not give me the flexibility I need to swim. Is this correct? Thank you.
Hello Elizabeth, yes this suit will give you the flexibility you are looking for. This suit is made with a premium super-stretch will stretch 250% more than standard neoprene.
that is correct. Even a suit made using the superstretch material is going to be fairly difficult to swim in as it is designed for scuba diving where we don''t use our arms nearly as much as a swimmer would. The suits aren''t designed for that sort of use. In those temps, a swimmer generating much more heat than a diver should be able to be by comfortably in a 5mm suit.
My measurements are 46 inch chest 36 inch waist 510 height. I know chest and waist are most important. Should i chest be the first priority then waist?
My measurements are in the small size except I am about 10lb heavier and only 5"tall - will the length and extra weight be a problem if I get the small size. Also could you tell me the freight cost to Australia. Thank you,

All my measurements are small size but Im about 10lb heavier than the chart and only 5"tall - will the length and extra weight be a problem? Also could you tell me how much the freight to Australia will be. Thanking you.
The most important measurements any time you purchase a wetsuit 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 its 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 seem to fit between two sizes by the chart. My measurements are as follows: 1. Chest =41.5" 2. Waist = 34" 3. Height = 72" 4. Weight = 195 lbs. Which size would you recommend?
Dear Sir, My sizes are: CHEST – 43 WAIST – 45 WEIGHT – 210 HEIGHT – 5.5 what size wet suit do I need?
Hello Jacob, when you are sizing a wetsuit or dive skin. The two most important measurements are going to be your chest/bust and waist. Height is a secondary measurement and weight is the last measurement you take into account. going by your measurements you would be a size 3Xl
Three things that are important to scuba divers when they purchase a wetsuit are warmth, comfort and value. The Ocean Quest Premium Super-Stretch Wetsuit covers all three. Constructed from 4-way stretch, Titanium neoprene this suit offers up to 250% more elasticity than a suit made with standard neoprene. What this means for the diver is a wetsuit that conforms to the contour of the body better, especially if you happen to not be the perfect “off the rack” fit in sizing. The suit is double glued and blind stitched inside and out for durability and features pre-bent arms and knees, molded, flexible knee pads, a non-magnetic YKK #10 zipper with a long, easy to reach pull leash. Offered in the color Black with Blue trim and available for men in sizes Small through 3XLarge and women in sizes XSmall through 2XLarge, this is one suit that should never be overlooked. It was designed specifically for the diver desiring high quality materials, the superior workmanship found in suits twice its price.
The Ocean Quest Premium Super-Stretch Titanium Jumpsuit is designed for all types of mining and dredging activities. It is designed to offer the best possible combination of fit and flexibility using premium, 4 way-stretch, Titanium neoprene, double glued and blind stitched inside and out for superior warmth and comfort. The Titanium material within the neoprene reflects the heat trapped in the suit back at the user more efficiently and doesn’t allow as much warmth to escape allowing the user’s body to remain warm with less effort. The Super-Stretch neoprene stretches up to 250% more than standard neoprene giving the miner a custom-like fit at a fraction of the price of a custom wetsuit. This type of neoprene is ideal for the miner who is moving, bending, kneeling and working in the stream or river as the superior flexibility in the material is far less restricting and uncomfortable than standard neoprene.
Featuring pre-bent arms and legs for added comfort, and an adjustable Velcro collar to help keep the cold out, this suit can be worn comfortably by multiple people with different body types. Equipped with a long leash to enable one person to easily zip their suit and flexible molded rubber knee pads to provide exceptional grip and durability, this suit is built to last its owner for years to come. Available in 3/2mm, 5mm and 7mm in sizes Men’s Small through 3XL
