Rating: Spring, Light, Wesuit
Reviewer: Joyce Gearhart
This a great product if youre looking for a light wetsuit. I swim in heated outdoor pools that are open in winter so need just a small amount of warmth. This product is advertised as 0.5 mm but I think its really 1 mm thick. Unfortunately, Im sending it back as I already have two 1 mm thick swim skins. Other than that, its a great wetsuit at a great price!

Questions and Answers for Henderson 1.5mm Microprene 2 Dive Skin Wetsuit:


  • Lyn:

    How does this suit run? My husband and I are just starting to learn to dive so we have only worn commercial overused, badly fitting suits. My measurements seem between sizes. I am @ 56", 130+lbs., bust 35ish, waist 28", hips 39". I am long in the torso w/ muscular thighs and calves. Will size 10 be the best choice for me?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Lyn, when you are sizing a wetsuit the two most important measurements are your chest/bust and waist. Height is a secondary measurements and weight is the very last measurements. Yes this suit runs true to the manufacture size chart.

  • Rickie:

    Hello, I want to buy a dive skin to my father buy I dont know how can i choose the size. Can you help me? My father is 177 centimeters tall and 200 pounds.

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Rickie, 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.

  • terry:

    i see these items run true to size but do they have any stretch in the material? thanx terry

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Terry, the Microprene is not made out of any type of stretch material. This suit will give you the same thickness as a 1/2mm suit.

  • terry:

    hi, another question can this item if worn alone be warmer than a lycra skin,say in 70 to 80 degree water?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Terry, yes this can be worn as a stand alone item or under your wetsuit for added warmth. This suit will give you the same warmth as a 1/2mm suit.

  • Tina:

    I purchased a 3mm wet suit in a size 12 womens and now I would like to purchase a .5mm or 1mm. Does the size run the same or vary depending on the mm. Thanks for you assistance.

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Each manufacturer has a slightly different sizing chart from the next and often even different charts within the same manufacturer for different suits. 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.

  • terry:

    hi, my question is, can this item be worn under a 3mm wetsuit if needed ? thanx

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Yes

  • Diane:

    hi - Henderson has this listed as a 1.5mm and no 0.5mm. Is this Microprene 1.5mm? Thx

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Diane, yes you are correct this material is 1.5mm not 0.5mm that is stated. We are having this corrected nice catch.

  • evylipsey:

    Does it have the blue accents as shown? When on the order page, its said all black.

    Arthur  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello, this suit is available in multiple colors. click on the options box and you will see the different colors.

  • Bruce:

    What if any is the care needed for this a new unworn Wetsuit before diving in it? Thank You, Bruce

    Arthur  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello, there is nothing needed to be done before use. Just make sure you rinse it in fresh water after use.
