Rating: My first wetsuit!
Reviewer: James H.
Ordered this suit to learn scuba. So far Ive used it in 4 pool lessons, so my review is based on only this. Pros: The suit is extremely easy to get on due to the zippers. I was nervous the zippers would be uncomfortable since the suit is tight, but the sharkskin lining around the cuffs (ankle and wrist) make them very comfortable. Im able to put my wetsuit on standing up, while all others struggle! I love the feel of the neoprene which is extremely flexible. Im easily able to move effortlessly in and out of the water. The fit is great, for the most part. Cons: The neck collar design seems to have a small flaw. Im not sure if its normal, since Im a newb, but a small amount of water comes in at the neck by the zipper. The overlapping collar seems to have a small gap. I can tighten the collar further and it does keep the water out, but it feels restrictive around my neck if I do so. Overall a great suit which Im sure will last a long time.

Rating: ONeill Explore 3 mm Wetsuit
Reviewer: James Middleton has these excellent suits available in sizes that most other outlets do not. In addition, after owing over a dozen wetsuits over the past 40 years, I have never had one that fit as well or was as soft and pliable as this ONeill. The only negative is that this suit is advertised on the web site as a 3/2mm suit. It is not. It is 3 mm all over, including arms and legs and that is a plus for comfort and warmth. The extra 1 mm in the limbs is not a problem because the material is so soft and pliable. Great value for the money. Jim Middleton, Panama City, FL

  • AShley:

    How do Oneill wetsuits compare to Cressi or Henderson in size? I can wear a small in cressi and henderson...

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    They are all very comparable suits. But as each manufacturer has their own sizing charges, 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.
