i have two questions i am new to the sport but resort padi certified, i am 61" a waist of 35 and a weight of 195lbs what size wet suite would you recommend? not sure what side i should lean to, larger like an xl or a l/tall. was looking to possibly purchase the atomic st1 regulator, am i crazy for spending that much $ for a regulator that i may only use a few times a year? i live in upstate new york and am trying to only buy one wet suite to meet 75 degree temp and also be able to use in warm water as well, would a 3mm suite work?
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 had a size 6 Henderson neoprene wetsuit 3 mm for several years, needs to be replaced. I am 5 foot 3, 139 lbs bust 36D waist 31 hips 36. Always wondered if my tight wetsuit was too small but I was never cold. Buy the same size or larger?
New to diving trying to find a wetsuit that fits a long legged woman. Looked at the Henderson that has a tall not sure whether to try a 10T or 12T as sizes in different body areas are different. Im 510, 35 length legs, wt 155, bust 36 so I could be a 10T or the 12T. Any recommendations. I have tried a pinnacle suit but to short in the legs and arms in both L and XL, pulling at shoulders on the L loose bat wings on the XL. Any help would be great
Is it true that the more the stretch, the less warmth a wetsuit has? I am looking at 3mm wetsuits (warm water diving) and am debating on the stretch capabilities since I get cold easy.
I live in Scottsdale Az. and have an in-ground unheated pool. For heath reasons I need to swim year round now. The pool temps in winter can be in the low 60s. I am interested in a womens front zip suit that can be worn in these temps. Also, would like to know if gloves and footwear are required in aforementioned temps. Thank you for your kind assistance.
Hello Terri, in the time range of your pool being under 65 degree I would suggest a 5mm suit like the: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-42/253300/Camaro-5mm-Alpha-Overall-Womens-Wetsuit.html. As for the gloves and boots yes they will help keep your hands and feet warmer over the time you spend in your pool. Just to let you know since all of these items are made of neoprene this will add buoyancy while you are swimming or walking back and forth in your pool.
What is the difference between thermoprene and aqua lock as far as stretch in the Henderson 3mm wetsuit thank you
Im looking for the Henderson Aqua-loc size 12 jumpsuit. Is this style the same everywhere? In researching, I can purchase this with a free dry bag with it but Ive tried on 7 wet suits and the is the one that fits the best so Im a bit reluctant to get it on line.
I need a tall wetsuit. I am looking at the Henderson thermoprene 10T. They never give the girth measurement, which is just as important as the waist and bust. What is the girth measurement for this suit? BTW the girth is when you loop the tape measure around your body thru crotch , up back and over shoulders. Mine is 90". Will I fit in this suit without a major wedgie?
Does Henderson make a womens 3 mm wetsuit with ankle zippers? I have very high arches and need the zipper to get on and off. Thank You
I am thinking of purchasing this product but am concerned about the size. I am 54", 40" bust, 37" waist, and 39" hips. Also, I noticed that all of your responses to similar questions indicate a # size as opposed to a s,m,l, etc size. When I click on the order button it only references s,m,l sizes. Im confused. Thanks.
Hello Nancy, going by your measurements you would be a size Large (9-10). 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.
