Questions and Answers for XCEL 7/6mm Thermoflex Ultrastretch Wetsuit for 2013:
a follow-up on my prior question regarding inseam and arm length do you have them in stock to measure yourselves?

Hello Joseph, we are currently out-of-stock in this suit. But to get those measurements you would need to contact the manufacture directly. They would have those measurements for you.
Im considering trying this wetsuit for my girlfriend as it seems one of the few that offer reasonable "short" options (shes 52").
Could you please let me know what the inseam and arm length are for the medium-short (7-8S) and large-short (9-10S) sizes? (and confirm how you measure each).
