Hi my wife is looking at the 5mm pinnacle cruiser wetsuit she is 5ft 6, waist is 29", chest is 36", inner leg is 29" around her bottom is 42 " and she weighs 155lbs what size should she order thanks
Hello Mark, going by her measurements you would want to order the size Medium/Large short. When you are sizing a wet suit or dive skin the two most important measurements are your chest/bust and waist. Height is a secondary measurement and weight is the last measurement you would take into account.
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.
