Rating: Bare Nex-Gen Pro Drysuit Review - $1,199.95 - Scuba Gear Customer Reviews
Reviewer: Scotty F.
This is my first drysuit diving experience and ownership. I really like this suit so far for my ice diving needs. It is really easy to put on and take off solo or with a buddy. I have not felt the need to trim the wrist or neck seals. The suit is very lightweight and seems durable so far! I am just shy of 62", 195lbs and the Large Tall is fitting just right. Im very pleased with it thus far!

Rating: international orders
Reviewer: John E.
Its always amazed me that I can buy a Canadian made product cheaper in the States than here at home. The order and shipping departments severely fouled up with my order sending it as two separate shipments and not itemizing the valuation on each. As a result, I paid the import taxes twice. This added an extra $72 to the cost of my order which was rather upsetting, but such is life. Ill be more careful when ordering in the future. As for the dry suit, its exactly what I was looking for. Thanks John E.

Rating: Excellent suit for the price
Reviewer: Steve F.  -  View all my reviews
I just purchased this suit last month and have been diving in it about 20 times already and it is great. No leaks, and the T-100 polarwear paired with some underarmour keeps me nice and warm even in 40 degree water. The material this suit is made of is strong and I am confident it will last a long time. It fits perfect, the automatic exhaust valve works great and easy to use. The only thing I wish it had was a pocket or two, but I am planning on buying two bare bellows pockets and gluing them on, so its not a big deal. Overall for the price, you cant go wrong with this suit. This was my first drysuit purchase and I am extremely happy with my decision. When diving in cold water, I am never going back to a wetsuit again! I would recommend this suit to anyone.

Questions and Answers for Bare Nex-Gen Pro Drysuit:

  • Lehman:

    The sizing for the BARE drysuit does not indicate the foot size for the suit. I have a size 14 foot will the Mens 2XL or 3XL work for me? I am 64" height and weight of 225

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    Hello Lehman, this would be a custom suit. The size 13 would be for the 4xl. If you give us a call at 1.800.347.2822 and we can order the size socks for you in the size suit you need.

  • Kf:

    Do u have stock for small size? And how long does it take to be delivered to hong kong?

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    For questions about product availability please contact our instructors at or 800-34SCUBA


    Hi. My measures are: 6,03 ft 200 lbs chest 46 waist 38 I think the XL is short for my chest and 2xl is very big. What do you think? Wich is the correct size for me? Please, help me. Thanks a lot!

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    Hello Marcel, the 2XL would be a better fit on you. Plus you will have some extra room to put on undergarments if you choose to do so.

  • Steven:

    I am 6 245# with a 48" chest will a 2x large fit me ok?

    Arthur  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    Hello, due to your chest I would go for the 3xl.

  • Shayne:

    Can one hookah dive with a drysuit? If so, is there a special suit or bcd that must be used?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    Hello Shayne, yes you can dive with a hookah in a dry suit, but if you want to inflate the dry suit you will need to carry a pony bottle to inflate the suit.

  • Niki:

    Hi what size drysuit should I go for I am 56 and have a 38 chest

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    The most important measurements any time you purchase a suit 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. After that your height is a secondary measurement. You don''t want it too long or too short, but there is give here with a dry suit as it does not have to fit skin tight like a wetsuit might. 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.

  • Chetan:

    Why do certain things in the description talk about Neoprene? From the technical details it seemed like there was no neoprene involved. Like even the seals were latex. Im severely allergic to Neoprene and I just want something completely free of neoprene.

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    Hello Chetan, the dry suit socks are made of neoprene.


    Hi. I am very interested in this drysuit. But not sure about the size. My measurements are: height: 6,03 ft weight: 200 lbs chest: 46 inch waist: 38. What is the best for me? L or XL? Thanks a lot.

    Aaron  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    Hi MARCEL, we would recommend the XLarge-Tall.



Offered with many popular features as standard, this suit offers style and durability at an excellent price. LIFETIME GUARANTEE.


At BARE we take our commitment to product quality seriously. Our drysuits in particular are legendary for their durability and longevity with many of our customers getting a full lifetime of use out of their BARE drysuit before passing it on to a friend or family member. This has allowed us to offer something that no other drysuit manufacturer has been able to do: a Lifetime Guarantee on seams and workmanship. Much more than a warranty, BARE is the fi rst and only drysuit manufacturer to offer a Lifetime Guarantee. Except for normal wear and tear, misuse or negligence, BARE will honor all claims against seams and workmanship for the life of the drysuit worldwide. Even if you’re not the original owner, you’re covered.

In a category where the next closest competitor only offers a 7-year warranty, we think you’ll agree that the BARE Guarantee says something quite extraordinary about the quality of the workmanship, materials and technology that goes into each and every one of our drysuits. We stand behind our workmanship like no one else because you deserve a product like no other.

BARE offers divers a series of drysuits manufactured from a wide range of materials including Neoprene, Butyl Trilaminate and Polyurethane. This range offers the diver the choice of basic suit material and construction that best meets his or her requirements.

How do I maintain the zipper on my drysuit?

Before each dive lubricate the zipper, follow the instructions on the container of zipper lubricant supplied with your suit.

Open and close the zipper a few times after the lubricant is applied to the zipper chain. The friction caused by the slider traveling over the teeth heats the lubricant causing it to flow into the teeth.

Apply a small amount of silicone grease to the sealing surface of where the slider completes the closure of the zipper. This is called the docking end of the zipper. The rubber ridges that can be seen on the inside of the docking end are where the grease should be applied. Also make sure that this area is clean and free of any other materials that may affect the seal.

Note: Always inspect the zipper for any foreign material that may affect its ability to close and create a watertight seal.

What do I need to do after the dive?

Close the zipper and rinse the outside of your drysuit with clean, fresh water. Rinse any of the inner surfaces that may have come in contact with salt water, such as the neck seal and wrist seals. Make sure that any sand, dirt, or gravel is washed away from the teeth of the zipper.

Open the zipper and hang the suit (if possible) over a piece of plastic pipe. A drysuit hanger can easily be made by passing a rope through a plastic pipe of about 3 to 4 inches in diameter and fastening both ends of the rope to an area where you can leave your suit to dry.

Note: Never leave your drysuit in direct sunlight. Ultraviolet radiation from the sun or florescent lighting will deteriorate neoprene and rubber materials (seals) very quickly. Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight will substantially lessen the life of all scuba equipment.

How should I store my drysuit?

The best way to store your drysuit is to leave it on its drying hanger in a cool, dry, dust-free area. If the suit must be stored otherwise; once it is completely dry inside and out, lay it on the floor with the zipper facing downward. Turn the boots inward and loosely rollup the legs and torso to the base of the neck seal. Bring the arms together over the top of the rolled suit so that the open zipper forms an arch as it does while you are wearing the suit. Slide the suit into its carrying bag and store it so that nothing else will be put on top of the bag.

Note: Both Neoprene and Butyl and Butyl Trilaminate materials can be damaged by exposure to petrochemical products such as gasoline/petrol, many industrial solvents, and cleaning solutions containing solvents. Avoid exposure to these chemicals during use of the drysuit and when cleaning.

Should the suit become heavily soiled, or exposed to grease, oil, etc., DO NOT CLEAN THE SUIT WITH SOLVENTS OR SOLVENT BASED CLEANERS OR DEGREASERS. You may use warm water and detergent based soaps to remove the stains. Be sure to rinse all the soap residue out with clean fresh water. Failure to follow these instruction can result in delamination and degradation of the materials.

What do I do about a leak in my drysuit?

There are many variables that must be investigated when dealing with leaks in a drysuit. Very often a leaking drysuit is not the fault of the suit itself. Usually, but not always, the cause of a leak can be determined when all of the events related to the doffing, donning, and diving with the drysuit are carefully and objectively reviewed.

For example, a diver may discover that her left foot is wet after a dive. The immediate and natural conclusion is that the suit is leaking in the left boot. The suit is checked for a leak in the left boot but no leak is found. The next time the suit is used the divers left foot stays dry. This is a very common occurrence. What often happens in this situation is that the undergarment, either a sock or an attached underwear booty is wet prior to putting it into the boot of the drysuit. During the dive the moisture eventually travels through the layers and appears as if it became wet during the dive.

The underwear boot could have become wet from being in contact with a wet piece of equipment during transport, or from stepping on wet ground prior to putting on the drysuit. Another possible cause could be water that entered the suit when it was rinsed after the last dive. Often a leak in a drysuit is clearly visible when the suit is tested, but sometimes other factors that may be determined from objective analysis are the cause.
