I am 5-10 and weigh 220 with a 40" waist. Going to the caribean in January. What size should I order. thanks Mike
The waist and chest are the most important measurements for the fit with a wetsuit. Height usually will work even if it is one to two inches short or tall. Weight will depend on the divers body build and is the last measurement to consider. As long as the item is not used in the water you have up to 60 days to refund or exchange it.
Im 510", 189lbs, 36"waist and 42" chest. I was considering the medium large. Would this be the correct choice?
I am 54" and 135 pounds with a 29" waist and 35" bust. Should I go up to a Womens large in the Pinnacle shorty or got with medium though it may be a bit snug?
I am 57", around 135 pounds but the waist is wider than the medium large you mention. It is 34. I have no hips or butt but a big ribcage. So is medium large the best still? The large seems too big.
Hi Olive Use the sizing chart keeping mind to look at waist and chest measurements as the two most important measurements, then height as a secondary measurement. Use weight only to tip the scales one way or another between sizes. After that pick the suit with the best fit for your body.
I wondered if a shorty scuba suit would work for me in a swimming pool. I am having radiation for breast cancer and cant swim because chemicals in the pool will break down the radiated skin. If it was dry or I could shower with tap,water before going in the pool would the suit keep pool,water from touching my breast skin?
Hello Marilyn, no this would let water in the suit. There are no manufactures that make a shorty that would stop the water from coming in the suits. If you are looking for a suit that will keep you dry I would suggest going with the: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-19/066980/ONeill-Boost-Drysuit.html. The only part of your body that would get wet is from your neck up, ankle to toes, and from your wrist to the tip of your fingers.
The SPIRIT shorty is a comfortable and lightweight suit designed for tropical diving, snorkeling, and general watersports. It is also ideal for use in swimming pools and any other time when a bathing suit does not provide enough insulation. Great for layering.
