I am looking to purchase a wet suit for swimming in the cold water of Lake superior in Upper Michigan where the temps are between 40 and 60 degrees! What options would you suggest?
Hi Terry, You could use this to swim in the water but this is a scuba suit. You would find yourself working really hard in the shoulders to swim. Listed below is a link to our swimming wet suits. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-598/Swimming-Swim-Neoprene-and-Skins.html
I am 5 11", weigh 230, waist 42, hips 47 (at this time), chest 45, I am having a hard time finding a wet suit that fits. I tried a hyperflex 2xxl and could not stretch the upper part over me. Any suggestions? do I have to go custom? it seems as the sizes go up so does the length. Im looking for a 4/3 or 5/3 full for surfing. thanks
on hyperflex 5/4mm cyclone2 wetsuit is listed as a 5/4 but the details have it as a 4/3 ive seen this on a few sites looking at this hyperflex suits. is it that the manufactured has rated it a 5/4 based on the overall warmth and technology but the material is technical a 4/3?
This suit says NOT for scuba or snorkeling. But, one of the answers says it is a scuba suit. I am looking for something that I can snorkel in and use for SUP and surfing. Looking for something to work in water temps 60-65 F. Is this suit good for that?
Hello Richard, because of the 2 different thickness in this suit it gives you better flex in the shoulder and hip so this suit is designed for more movement a scuba diver does. That is not to say you can''t use this suit to dive in. As long as the thickness of the suit would work for the water temp you are going to be diving in it would work as a scuba suit.
