Rating: surprizing quality for a skin
Reviewer: Andy Holden,  - View all my reviews
This is really more than I expected from a "Skin". It has the features and looks of a nice wet suite, just very thin so can serve the skin funtion when wearing under a suite or just protection when you dont need a wet suite.

Rating: Great warm water skin.
Reviewer: Nicholas B.,
Bought this suit for both myself and my wife to take to St Lucia. We were very happy with them, especially for the price. Diving in water temps of 79-81F I may not have needed it for warmth but it was enough to keep my wife very comfortable and was nice for the added layer of protection. Would recommend it! Sizing seemed accurate, Im 61" and 185lbs, and the XL fit well.

Rating: comfortable but not much warmth
Reviewer: Robin S.,
I believe the description said this was as warm as a 2mm wetsuit. I dont believe it is. I bought this for a trip with extensive snorkeling around the Turks and Caicos in Feb. I think the water temp was about 76. I was in the water for up to 1/2 hour repeatedly throughout several days and was quite chilled, not kept warm by the suit (and FYI I do have body fat - not a "skinny" girl). It was great comfortable sun protection though. I wore it alone without a wet suit over it.

Rating: Size runs small
Reviewer: Karissa P.,
The XS is REALLY small. I am within ALL the measurements for an XS according to the sizing chart, but I couldnt breath in an XS. I exchanged it for a Small, and it is perfect. So keep that in mind when ordering sizes.

Rating: Really NICE skin
Reviewer: Suzanne Holtzclaw,
Ordered this to take on trips to have the option for additional warmth if needed or less buoyant option when it is warmer. Used it the first time as additional layer when on a snorkel tour with manatee. We were in 74 degree water (35 degree air temp) for about 4 hours. I was pretty comfortable for a very long time and give credit to adding the jumpsuit to the mix. I saw where others commented that you need to order the next larger size. I am 58" and weigh about 130lbs and got the medium. It is a little tight initially and I probably should have purchased the large. I bought my husband the 2xl. He wears a Large shirt but has issues with things tight around his neck. He was very comfortable and happy I bought the larger size - he NEVER gets cold. We are happy with our purchase and will recommend to others.

Rating: 17oz Superior Polyolefin Dive Skin Jumpsuit
Reviewer: nickolas Hobbs-Ainley,
This is a great product, very easy to put on and then easy to put on the wet suit. I like it so much that if I ever need to buy another one I would again get the same one. living in Spain I needed to pay tax on my item as it came from the US. however I could not find it anywhere in Europe. the thumb loops and foot straps are so well made and are a real help when putting the wet suit on. thanks Scuba for stocking this item, please feel free to use this letter in you promotions. Kind regards NickSpain

Rating: liked it
Reviewer: Jacqueline Dewald,
Just returned from a 13 day trip to grand cayman and liked this dive skin- It is light and very easy to dry I wore it with a 3mm vest and was warm. The sizes are odd a large is a womans size 12. My husband ordered this suit and liked it except the seams are coming apart after 4 days. This product has some real promise, needs some quality control in order to have a lasting place in the market.

Rating: run small
Reviewer: Karen Barnett,
Ive been wearing Henderson dive suits for years, and decided to renew my suits. The size medium has gotten smaller and is now tight, so am sending back this one and have ordered a large. Dont change your sizing on those of us who have worn you for years! thanks

Rating: Henderson 17oz Superior Polyolefin Dive Skin Jumpsuit:
Reviewer: Harold Waldron,  - View all my reviews
works great, but dont be hesitant to order a larger size. mine is large, and it is too tight on me at 180lbs, 58-1/2", 42"chest, 36"waist. xl would be my ion. also, the torso length is short. other than that, from the waist down it fits ok.

Rating: Dive Skin Jumpsuit
Reviewer: Gail O.,  - View all my reviews
This is my second purchase of this suit. I teach swimming and this is great for the long days in the pool. This second one is for diving only. This suit is great in cold water it adds that extra insulation without the bulk and buoyancy. Makes it much easier to get a wetsuit on and off. Ive also used it on its own in the St. Lawrence in the summer and down south in the winter. The padded spine makes it very comfortable with dive gear.
