What size full wetsuit do I order? I am 59", 205 lbs. waist 40 chest 45" inseam 30"
Hello Craig, the size I would suggest for you is 2XL Short. when you are sizing a wetsuit 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.
I am a very large woman beginning to scuba dive. The largest size available in womens ends at 200 lbs. and I am closer to 240 lbs. Should I consider a mens suit?
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.
i have 180 cm height 88 kg weight what is my size L or XL? thanks
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. The waist and chest are the most important measurements for the fit with a wetsuit.

I ordered the large 5 mm and it was to tight .Im 6ft chest 39 waist 36 weight 193 with med build . Should I get xtra large instead?
I value warmth over comfort in a wetsuit. What advantages would a 5/7mm give me over a 5mm? Where is the 7mm?
The temperature of the water generally will determine the thickness of the wetsuit that is needed, and generally the colder the water, the thicker the wetsuit will be needed. For more specific information regarding different wetsuits please contact our instructors at firstname.lastname@example.org
I will be using the suit along southern pacific coast (San Diego area) in waters 55-70 degrees. I am 64", 185 lbs, 32" waist. Size L ? 3mm or 5mm? Thanks!
The thermal protection that you will need while diving depends greatly on the individual and the number, length, and frequency of the dives, among other factors. Generally, I recommend a 5mm wetsuit for that water temperature. When sizing a wetsuit, the most important measurements are waist and chest. Going by only the measurements you have given, you would be a Large according to the manufacturers sizing chart.
The CRUISER provides a means to enjoy many of the features and benefits of Pinnacle’s higher end suits while still maintaining a budget. The CRUISER incorporates many design aspects that are superior to those found in other suits costing more than twice the price.
Available in 3mm, 5mm and 7mm.
Cruiser suit is available in 3mm, 5mm and 7mm options
• 3mm/5mm/7mm titanium lined neoprene throughout the suit for
even greater warmth than before. Higher stretch neoprene in the
extremities allows for greater flexibility, and 5mm wrist and
ankle seals allow for easy donning.
• Constructed in highly flexible 3mm/5mm/7mm neoprene for
maximum warmth and flexibility
• Advanced stretch neoprene is elastic enough to make donning
simple, yet resists compression enough to maintain warmth
• Though a budget suit, the Cruiser is built better and incorporates
more features than most high-end suits
• Molded rubber shoulder pads protect diver and suit as well as
help to hold BC in place
• Smoothskin neck, ankle, wrist, and spine seals lock cold water
out and seal body-heated water inside the suit
• All seams glued and blind stitched
• 7mm & 5mm have ankle zippers (3mm Cruiser suit does not)
The key step to making any wetsuit perform to its ultimate potential is reducing water transfer. This process, whereby water from the diving environment enters and exits the wetsuit, allows cold water to enter the suit and lets bodywarmed water exit; thus chilling the diver, even in tropical waters. PINNACLE nearly eliminates water transfer by creating better barriers to keep cold water out, making more form-fitting products that prevent internal water movement, employing the renowned Merino™ lining system to enable body heat to warm internal water, and then making it extremely difficult for that warm water to escape.
In order to prevent water entry and egress, PINNACLE employs the latest technology in sealing systems. Features like honeycomb o-ring wrist seals, Orcaskin™ forearm gussets, smoothskin chimney seals in the ankles, roll-neck collars with smoothskin sealing surfaces, smoothskin-to-smoothskin sealing surfaces on 10mm spine pads, and the innovative Pinnacle Defense System (P.D.S.) combine in PINNACLE suits to create a significantly better water barrier than in other brands. These sealing systems work as checkpoints, neither allowing water in the suit nor out.
The second step, having a more form-fitting suit, is achieved by offering divers more choices in sizes. PINNACLE offers as many as 17 male, 12 female and 4 children’s sizes in wetsuits, as well as more sizes of boots, gloves, and hoods than most other manufacturers.
PINNACLE has the ability to customize suits to some extent to fit people with more challenging shapes, but with up to 33 stock sizes, one is sure to fit almost any diver perfectly; and a tighter, better-fitting suit leaves less room for water to move, which keeps the diver warmer.
