Im 71" tall and 150lbs with a 36 bust. Should I be getting the 13/14?
Hello Kim, when you are sizing a wet suit or dive skin. The two most important measurements are going to be your chest/bust and waist. Height is a secondary measurement and weight is the last measurement you take into account. Going by the measurements you gave us I would put you into size XL.
I am 65" 250lbs, waist 42", chest 50" and wanted to know if the 3XL Neo-sport Xspan Super Stretch will fit me. Also, I will be diving in springs in Florida with temperatures in the lower 60s at depth. I dont get cold easily but I am a Floridian. Will the 5mil be warm enough or do I need to go to a 7mil. Thanks
Hello George, the suit I would suggest for you is the Ocean Quest 5mm Premium Super-Stretch Titanium Wetsuit web link: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-42/150167/Ocean-Quest-5mm-Premium-Super-Stretch-Titanium-Wetsuit.html. This suit will be 150% more stretch then the Henderson.
Im 5 2", 117lbs, 36-27-35. Which size is best for me?
Based on the Neosport sizing chart, your closest size would be a MD 7-8 The most important measurements any time you purchase a wetsuit using the manufacturer's sizing charts will always be your waist and chest/bust measurements. The suit needs to fit your torso correctly in order to do its job properly. Keep in mind there is no such thing as a comfortable wetsuit on the surface. You want it to be snug, but not cut off circulation to your extremities. The more snug it is, the thinner the layer of water your body is heating. If its too loose you will remain warm for awhile, but eventually your body won't be able to keep up with the greater amount of water flowing through the suit and you'll wind up getting cold faster. After that your height is a secondary measurement. The manufacturers realize that generally speaking your boots and gloves can overlap slightly short arms and legs, or the diver can push or roll up longer sleeves and/or arms if need be. Weight is a measurement the diver can usually ignore. It really has little to no bearing what so ever on the sizing and fit of your suit. The manufacturers do not take into account muscle being more dense than fat, so based simply on fitness levels 2 people can be the exact same size but quite different in weight. This measurement should only be used if the person is literally on the fence between 2 sizes in all categories.
Looking for a wetsuit (probably 5mm) for my son for a Christmas gift. It will be his first - was certified a year ago - and will be taking a high school trip to the Bahamas in Spring 2014 to do some diving. Until now, we always rented. Looking for your recommendation for best quality wetsuit on a budget. Thanks
Hello Jim, when you are sizing a wet suit or dive skin. The two most important measurements are going to be your chest/bust and waist. Height is a secondary measurement and weight is the last measurement you take into account. The best suit is the one that fits the best on the person that is wearing it.
I am a female 58" 128 lbs. 37 bust 30 waist. Wondering if I should go for LG-10 or XL-12. Also, Ive never been diving before, would you recommend a rash guard?
