Why is this suit listed as not for snorkel or scuba use? How does it differ from the others without this qualifier?
Suits for watersports such as surfing, windsurfing, body boarding, etc are assembled in a different manor than suits for scuba/snorkeling. In Scuba the user wants to keep warm with a minimal amount of motion. In essence the more we move, the more we breathe. The more we breathe the faster our tanks drain. These suits are designed less for mobility and flexibility and more for efficient water trapping to maintain warmth. Suits for other water sports take into account the additional movement and motion will generate more heat in the suit and negate the fact that the suit does not trap water as efficiently to help maintain the warmth in the suit.
I want to keep warm in an ocean water pool this summer. Do you think a shorty with neoprene would work for me? What do you suggest? Thanks
Hello Mary, it all depends on the water temp. Shorties are designed for warm water 75 degrees and up. If the water is cooler then that then I would suggest going with the Pinnacle 5mm Escape 5 Front Zip Shorty Wetsuit web link: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-42/150595/Pinnacle-5mm-Escape-5-Front-Zip-Shorty-Wetsuit.html.
