I am a teenager who is 66" tall. I weigh 175 lbs. my chest size is 36.5" waist 32.5" inseam 36" and sleeve length 28". I am diving in the Florida Keys this summer with water temperatures around 79 - 86 degrees. Is there a wetsuit that would work for me?
Hello, for water this warm you could get away with using a skin. Check out the link below. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-44/010600/Henderson-Lycra-Dive-Skin-Jumpsuit.html If you wanted a little more warmth you could go with a 3/2mm wetsuit. Here is the link for that. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-43/149218/Ocean-Quest-3-2mm-Premium-Super-Stretch-Titanium-Wetsuit....html
I weigh 215 lbs. Should I go with a XL or 2XL? Not sure as my soloflex 8mil XL is very tight around the middle and chest..so much so that it hurts my upper torso when I dive... Any thought?
The most important measurements any time you purchase a wetsuit or drysuit 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.
women,waist 78cm,chest 96cm. XL(11-12) is suitable for me according to the size chart.It seems the size of Aqual Lung Sport is smaller than many other bands of wetsuits such as Mares,Beuchat Alize.Is it right?
That may well be. Each manufacturer creates their sizing chart based on what they feel is the most likely fit or dimensions. Some run smaller and some run larger than others. Typically Aqua Lung is considered a pretty middle of the road, or average fit.
How reliable is Aqua Lungs sizing chart? I know that with other companies the customers report that the sizing charts tend to either lean toward big, small, or more or less spot on.
