Rating: Great wetsuit at a bargain price
Reviewer: Alex O., - View all my reviews
I have used the 3mm Ocean Quest for several years but needed a 5mm for some cooler water diving. Used if for 12 dives last week and was very happy with the performance. Stretches great for a 5mm after a few break-in dives and the 5mm was great insulation. Would definitely recommend this wetsuit.

This wetsuit is a great product for the money. I do not like the velcro at the top of the wetsuit, it grabs ahold of the neoprene a lot and starts ripping the suit. I can feel the quality difference in the material between Ocean Quest and Aqualung wetsuits, but then again Aqualung is significantly more expensive. Overall this is an excellent economical wetsuit with semi-good quality.

Not long after being chilled in my 3mm wetsuit did I don on this nice fitting suit. Chills went away and the video stabilized. A little extra chore in getting into and out of but well worth it.

Questions and Answers for Ocean Quest 5mm Premium Super-Stretch Titanium Wetsuit:
I weigh 180and am 5 foot 9 inches tall, what size of wetsuit do you recommend?
Bill (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com)
The waist and chest are the most important measurements for the fit with a wetsuit. Height usually will work even if it is one to two inches short or tall. Weight will depend on the divers body build and is the last measurement to consider.
Im a distance swimmer and I have never worn a wetsuit but I want to get into the ocean early this year. Do you have wetsuits for distance training. Something flexible

Hello Adam, yes you can use this for any type of water action. Because of the super-stretch material you will have greater flexibility in your arms and legs for surfing.
Three things that are important to scuba divers when they purchase a wetsuit are warmth, comfort and value. The Ocean Quest Premium Super-Stretch Wetsuit covers all three. Constructed from 4-way stretch, Titanium neoprene this suit offers up to 250% more elasticity than a suit made with standard neoprene. What this means for the diver is a wetsuit that conforms to the contour of the body better, especially if you happen to not be the perfect “off the rack” fit in sizing. The suit is double glued and blind stitched inside and out for durability and features pre-bent arms and knees, molded, flexible knee pads, a non-magnetic YKK #10 zipper with a long, easy to reach pull leash. Offered in the color Black with Blue trim and available for men in sizes Small through 3XLarge and women in sizes XSmall through 2XLarge, this is one suit that should never be overlooked. It was designed specifically for the diver desiring high quality materials, the superior workmanship found in suits twice its price.
The Ocean Quest Premium Super-Stretch Titanium Jumpsuit is designed for all types of mining and dredging activities. It is designed to offer the best possible combination of fit and flexibility using premium, 4 way-stretch, Titanium neoprene, double glued and blind stitched inside and out for superior warmth and comfort. The Titanium material within the neoprene reflects the heat trapped in the suit back at the user more efficiently and doesn’t allow as much warmth to escape allowing the user’s body to remain warm with less effort. The Super-Stretch neoprene stretches up to 250% more than standard neoprene giving the miner a custom-like fit at a fraction of the price of a custom wetsuit. This type of neoprene is ideal for the miner who is moving, bending, kneeling and working in the stream or river as the superior flexibility in the material is far less restricting and uncomfortable than standard neoprene.
Featuring pre-bent arms and legs for added comfort, and an adjustable Velcro collar to help keep the cold out, this suit can be worn comfortably by multiple people with different body types. Equipped with a long leash to enable one person to easily zip their suit and flexible molded rubber knee pads to provide exceptional grip and durability, this suit is built to last its owner for years to come. Available in 3/2mm, 5mm and 7mm in sizes Men’s Small through 3XL
