Rating: Good construction. Value for $$$
Reviewer: Ke Heam Peh,
Have not tried the outfit in the waters yet. But did put it on and it is comfy and snuggly. Feel and looks to be a quality product. Except, there seems to be a smell from the outfit. Maybe cause is still very new.

Rating: Fits like a glove
Reviewer: Mark R.,   
The Mares 205mm Reef Shorty Wetsuit I recently purchased earned every bit of the 5 star rating I have given it. I try to stay away from ordering fitted items online because more times than not they dont fit and back they go. From the first time I tried it on to the time I used my new wetsuit I was throughly impressed! Excellent fit and very comfortable to wear. I would give a definite thumbs up review to anyone that wanted to purchase this item, you wouldnt be disappointed.

Rating: Mares 2.5 mm Shorty
Reviewer: Julie J.,  - View all my reviews
Excellent shorty, well constructed. Like the Velcro tab allowing wearer to hook the zipper pull to the base of the zipper. This is my first Mares wetsuit. Runs just a little smaller than same size in the Henderson line. But I followed Mares sizing guidelines and it does fit. Overall very happy with the purchase and price and was great at quick delivery.

Rating: great carribean wetsuit
Reviewer: Duane Warner,
Just used it for the first time in Curacao, perfect for the warm waters. Fits exactly as their sizing chart indicates ( Im 6 and 210 and the XL was great)! Cant go wrong for the cost, comfort, and feel of this.

Rating: Mares 2.5mm Tropic Shorty.:
Reviewer: Dennis M.,  - View all my reviews
This shorty is great....and it looks good on..It feels a little more strechy than the normal shorty which is probably why it is so comfortable..As a male diver, I think this shorty works great in warm or cool water where you want just a little more protection than a rash guard.

Rating: Mares 2.5 Tropical Shorty
Reviewer: Phillip Brown,  - View all my reviews
I received this within a week after ordering. It looks great, and the price was right. I will be diving the week of December 14th so at this time I dont know how well it works or fits. I also have like most divers several full wetsuits, and a top half of a Farmer Johns that is great especially since the zipper is in the front.

Rating: excellent wetsuit for price!
Reviewer: Michael W.,
I purchased this shorty wetsuit for a recent diving trip to the Bahamas, and was well pleased with the fit and quality of it. I checked the reviews and saw the recommendation was to figure the sizes ran a little snug and bought accordingly, and it was an excellent fit. If anyone is in the market for a economical 2.5 shorty wetsuit, I would have to say this one is tough to beat.

Rating: Great suit
Reviewer: Richard H.,
Bought it for a trip to Aruba and it was perfect. Good quality, easy on/off, very comfortable, just right for the 83 degree waters. Just pulled it down to the waist between dives to stay cool. Held up very well after 8 dives. I wear a rash guard with it as I tend to get a little burn under the arms but I get that with all suits.
