Hello Alem, yes you could wear this over your current suit. You might need to order a larger size since you are going to be wearing this over your other suit. If you have any other questions or would like to place an order please feel free to give us a call at 1.800.347.2822.
I am 6 foot, 155lbs tall, thin and lanky kind of guy. Very thin and long. Would a Mares Shorty 2mm sz S work and fit well for me? My waist size is approximately 31-32. I know the run slightly smaller too.
Hello Matthew, when you are sizing a wet suit. The two most important measurements are going to be the chest/bust, and waist. Height is a secondary measurements weight you throw out the window. If you have any other questions please feel free to give us a call at 1.800.347.2822.
Buying for my husband. Hes a bit wider and a bit shorter than the ideals in the Mares sizing chart. Im thinking hell need a size 2XL, BUT hes about 57" tall. Your recommendation?
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.
I live in Tampa and I am looking for a suit that will work in a variety of temperature conditions. Such as the cooler waters of the fall and into the winter months as well as the spring. Is a shorty the best and will I get more use with that versus buying a full length wet suit?
The type of suit you will want is based totally on the water temps you'll be using it in. Typically a 3mm FULL suit is designed for use in waters 75f to 85f. A shorty would fall into that temp range as well, but typically on the warmer side of the range.
Looking for a wetsuit that I can wear for a triathlon, but they all seem to be priced much higher than these. Looking for warmth and buoyancy help mostly. Any reason this wouldnt be a good choice?
I dont purchase clothing from catalogues, as my body type is atypical. I am a female construction worker with a body type to match. Chest 42, waist 39, height 58, and weight 200, (solid except for the midlife bulge). Also, I am long in the body. The ONLY size chart that seems to have appropriate weights for the body measurements is Mares. I would like to go with a shortie that has more elasticity than neoprene, for easier entry. My shoulders have lost their range of motion from years of drywalling, any recommendations? We live in cattle country, and there are no dive shops nearby, where I might try different shorties on. You know your products better than anyone. Is there any one suit that has more give than the standard neoprene. I would like to use it in our swimming pool to extend the swimming season, as well as warm winter holidays. Tnx. M
Hello Marilyn, when you are sizing a wet suit the two most important measurements are going to be your chest/bust and waist measurements. Height is a secondary measurements and weight is the last. Going by your measurements I would suggest this suit and you would be a men size large: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-258/152068/Ocean-Quest-3-2mm-Premium-Titanium-Super-Stretch-Shorty-Wetsuit.html. I think this would be a better fit with the super stretch material, it will contour around your body and give you a better fit.
