How does this wetsuit compare to a scubapro wetsuit? Ive never used another wetsuit than a Scubapro but I will be diving in Belize so I need a thicker wetsuit because I get cold easily especially on deeper dives.
The suit compares to Scubapro, and any other manufacturer's suits, very well. Neosport is Henderson's Sport line but the suits are still made by the same people, on the same machines, using the same materials that the high end Henderson suits are. That being said, Henderson is among the most innovative and inventive of all the wetsuit manufacturers.
Im a 52" woman at 117 lbs. What size should I buy? By the measurement chart, Id be on the high end of size small but low end of size medium. But Im concerned about the height measurements, where both womens small and medium are too long. Can I buy a size XS in mens and still fit a womans figure?
Hello Vicky, when you are sizing a wet suit the two most important measurements will be your chest/bust and waist measurements. Height is a secondary measurements and weight is the last measurements. The only difference between the men and women suits is the sizing and the cut of the suit.
i am 6ft 200 lbs with a 35 waist and a 40 chest what size should i get Im not so sure
Based on the info you give, you'd be a size Large. 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.
Im new to diving. convinced I dont want to wear a rental for training. I am 58, I wear a 43R jacket, waist is ~35-36 and weigh ~180. will I fit in a Large or is an XL too big for the Neosport 5mm?
Hey there, Ive been spring/cavern diving in Florida with an ill fitting 7 mm suit (full arms, short legs). Im 52" 115 lbs. Temps are around 70, but dives can run longer than an hour at depths of 80-100. Will a 5mm suit be suitable for these types of dives? I am really interested in the flexibility of the suit without spending a fortune. Perhaps a 7/5 suit you can recommend?
Hello Jennifer, here is the suit I would suggest for you: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-101/150434/Ocean-Quest-7mm-Premium-Super-Stretch-Titanium-Wetsuit.html. That suit should work very well for you with flex and warmth
What type of wetsuit do you need for New Zealand and would this work? Thanks
Hello Donna, if you are in the northern part of the country yes this suit would work for the water temp. If you are in the southern part of the country than I would suggest going with the 7mm version of this suit. It also depends on the time of year you are going too.
The ultra versatile 5mm is great for tropical waters, especially in the winter months, yet is also warm enough for the cooler temps of dive sites closer to home. A 5mm torso promotes core body warmth and 5mm extremities balance warmth and flexibility. This proven jumpsuit design is easy to don and has an adjustable collar that inhibits water exchange at the neck. Tough, flexible pads protect the knees and lower leg.
