I am a female but a bit heavier...190 lb and 56. I would like to find a long sleeve shorty wetsuit for swimming and due to my size am having a hard time finding one. I found a great Roxy Syncro springsuit but not in my size. Would this mens Henderson work by chance?
I buy long torso bathing suits. Do you sell long torso wetsuits?
Hello Lisa, yes there are manufactures that do make a long and short version of some suits. Like the Henderson 3mm Aqua Lock Hyperstretch Wetsuit web link: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-43/149492/Henderson-3mm-Aqua-Lock-Hyperstretch-Wetsuit.html.
Why are some wet suits NOT recommended for SCUBA or Snorkeling? I am looking for a cold weather shorty for my daughter to use sailing, but she is looking to get Dive certified soon. What would do both effectively and inexpensively?
It's the way the suit is assembled and sealed. A suit for scuba restricts water flow and isn't designed for a lot of motion as the more the diver moves, the more they breathe. The more they breath the faster their tanks empty. A suit for other watersports, (surf, jet ski, boarding and such) are made to keep a person warm for a brief swim back to their board or jet ski and not for prolonged exposure. They are primarily designed with the users mobility in mind.
