I am 511" and weigh approx. 190 lbs. need help in deciding to go with large or extra large mens wetsuit. Can you help? Thank you
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. As long as the item is not used in the water you have up to 60 days to refund or exchange it.
Im 62" and 180, I was wondering what size Dive skin or 1mm wetsuit I might need and I was also wondering if a 2 or 3 mm might fit under a 7 mm wetsuit?
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. 2 or 3mm is generally too thick to be worn underneath a 7mm suit. A proper fitting 7mm suit should not need the extra insulation.
1MM NEO SKIN JUMPSUIT
The same qualities that make neoprene a great wetsuit material also make it a great choice for thinner skin style garments. At just 1mm thick, this full length jumpsuit gives divers the stretch and comfort of a quality neoprene along with its natural insulating ability. Available in physique enhancing cuts for both men and women, it has a back-zip for easy self-donning. Excellent as a warm water garment, the Neo Skin is also well suited to layering under thicker suits.
