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
Depending on the water temperature a 5mm is fairly thick and will be very buoyant. Typically for swimming a 3mm or triathlon type suit works best. The Aqualock in 3mm would be a good choice. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-43/149492/Henderson-3mm-Aqua-Lock-Hyperstretch-Jumpsuit---Wetsuit.html

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.
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
