Rating: Waterproof is Quality!!!!!!!
Reviewer: Michael Lindsey
im a first time purchaser of the waterproof brand, i own many other very good brands of wetsuits for different conditions. i shopped for this wetsuit while planning a march trip to cayman brac where temperatures are generally warm, high 70s to low 80s. after the winter here in the us it seemed cold everywhere!!!! so, im shopping for a better quality 3+ mil suit, so i found the 3.5 mil waterproof w3 suit. i had a tough time with the sizing, do a ggod job with their size chart and get some help to do your measurements!!! i am 61, 215 weight, i ed the xl got it here and it was too short in the inseam and very tight in the forearm area, so i returned to original vendor, tried to reorder the xl tall size, they did not have and did not know when one would come it?????? so, i called customer service with waterproof for guidance, they were very helpful and told me they had an xl tall in their us inventory. i called scuba.com and placed my order for the waterproof w3 xl tall. the suit arrives and try it on for a very good fit, not perfect but acceptable. when i get to cayman brac and get in the water i could tell that the suit needed some "fill" in my torso area, all other area fit to the tee. so, i used an old 3 mill vest under the suit for a perfect fit and warm comfy suit for 2 dives per day for the next 6 days. great suit, just be good with your measurements , the leg and neck zippers are a plus for getting in the suit and out of the suit. my only improvement will be to buy a 2 mill undervest to fill with! the quality of the materials and workmanship with the suit seem to be outstanding!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rating: Great Suit
Reviewer: Huw K.  -  View all my reviews
I was concerned this suit wouldnt fit as according to the chart I was between sizes. If anyone else is looking at these suits and is around 172cm, 85kg with a 115cm chest this suit will fit you fine. Very easy to don and doff and comfortable when leaving the suit on in between dives thanks to the extra zip at the neck.

  • Bill:

    What are your thoughts about the quality of the Waterproof W3 wetsuit?

    Arthur  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Waterproof is a "top of the line" wet suit. They fit well and are very durable.

  • Bill:

    Im interested in the Waterproof W3. few questions: 1) Size. Im 62", 175#, Chest 39", waist 32", inseam 34". Im thinking Im closer to a medium tall than a small tall. Your thought? 2) Any idea how long the price will be at $180 and availability of the sizes I mention?

    Arthur  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Good morning, I would go for the medium tall. And the prices are always changing so I would jump on this asap.

  • KANGLI:

    im a little fat and not tall, weight:170lbs (75kg) height:5򟙈" (158cm) waist:35"(90cm) chest:41"(103cm) i look the detail size in size chart, like short xl maybe is fit me. can you give me the size advise? in web szie chart no sxl size, so mean this size is not in store? if not in store, can you help me order a this size with factory?

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    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.

  • Rick:

    Can you wash this suit in the washing machine, if so what settings?

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    No, it is best to used a tub to hand wash the suit and hang to dry.

  • Hin:

    the size chart here different from official website. what size should i im about 5"10 weight 154 ibs chest 37 waist 31 hip 36 crotch to ankle 31". please advice.

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    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.

  • Alan:

    I really like this suit, but I dont know if it will fit. As per usual, I am between sizes. I am an athletic build, 57 tall, 165lbs,42" chest, 33" waist,40" hips, 30" inseam. Will a Med Short Plus fit? is there another suit I should be looking at? the price is above my range, but I am interested in anything that is a good fit. Thanks!

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    In this particular suit the closest fit for your build is going to be the medium large size. But unfortunately based on their chart there is no perfect fit for you from this manufacturer. 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.

  • Donna:

    What does the 3.5 in the title of the wetsuit mean? Also, I dont know which size to get. Id like a womens size that would fit me at 260lbs and 57" height. I want to use the wetsuit in my pool this winter so I can stay up with my exercise plan. Im looking for a wetsuit that does not let any water through because I am sensitive to the cold. Does this one keep the water out?

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    All the wetsuits are designed to let water into the suit and trap the water so your body can warm it up. The suit needs to fit snug in order to do this. 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.

  • GYEOL:

    the size chart here different from official website. 160cm,48kg,chest 30,waist 26. According to the chart on the official website XSMALL, but here size chart is SMALL. I need advise.

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello GYEOL, order going by the manufacture sizing. We show the manufacture has up-dated there size chart and had not informed us. We are having our IT dept change it.
