Reviewer:
I received this item very quickly. The Dive skin fit me right out of the box. The sizing Chart was spot on with the selected sizing and this skin really helps to put on my 7mm wetsuit. No need to push and pull and huff and puff to get it on. Very good quality and I will definitely recommend for other people to buy.

My girlfriend and I wear this suit for sun and jellyfish protection in the waters of Thailand. Good snug fit (I ordered a size up from the chart). Comfortable with easy on/off when wet or dry. We keep it wet while paddling our SUPs or kayaks and the evaporation actually keeps us cooler than without it. Seems to be quite well made though time will tell.

Perfect fit, being very wide in the chest and tall it can always be an issue to find the right fit but this one did. It works well beneath my suit in the cold waters in the Midwest and should work well by itself in the warm Caribbean for this cold blooded guy. It looks good which helps also.

Reviewer: James G.
I like this jumpsuit a lot. However, the tallest size is advertised to fit up to 62". I am 64" and weigh 170 pounds (tall and skinny). A sales rep in the store told me over the phone to buy the size Large. I tried both the Large and the X-Large, and they were both too short. The 2X-Large turned out to be pretty darned good. I think a taller version might have been a little better, but I was very happy with the 2XL as it stretched to fit my height. I used it every day for a week of snorkeling and swimming and was very happy to have it.

Got this suit mostly for sun and jellyfish protection. Havent got it wet yet but the quality and the fit are good. Easy on and off with the big front zip. I went up a size from the size chart specs and it is still snug but feels and looks good.

Reviewer: Thomas D.
Have used a number of other lycra dive skins,mainly under my wetsuit. Aids in both getting into and out of a neoprene dive suit. Decided to try the Henderson Lycra Dive Skin, works well, adds a layer of warmth. The quality is excellent,the front zip makes it easy to get into and out off as opposed to a rear zip. Have had no problems with it and would recommend it to anyone else.

I am really impressed with the quality & comfort of this skin. It exactly what I need for an upcoming trip. I debated between the small and xsmall and decided to go with with xs. Ive learned from experience that when in doubt go smaller in a dive suit. It fits well and feels great.

Rating: Nice skin
Reviewer: Michael Dyer
Wear it under my 5 mm wetsuit to aid in putting it on and taking off. Seems to help slightly. I cant really tell if it adds any warmth but at least your a little more "covered up" when donning your wetsuit or removing it. They seem to run a little small as the medium is pretty tight length wise (height) on me and I am 510. Wish the zipper went a little lower for when nature calls to make things easier.

Bought this for a week in St Lucia diving at the Pitons. The skin was perfect. Fit well and dried overnight even in the humid tropical weather. Id strongly recommend this to anyone looking for a light weight tropical dive skin.

  • Shaun:

    My wife an I are goin to Cozumel an taking a three day diving course and want to buy a shorty or full dive suit that will be comfortable and effective for what we are doing

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Shaun, congratz on taking the open water scuba class. If you are looking for a lightweight dive skin for your trip I would suggest to you the Henderson 17oz Superior Polyolefin Dive Skin Jumpsuit web link: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-44/010629/Henderson-17oz-Superior-Polyolefin-Dive-Skin-Jumpsuit.html. The lycra skin you are asking about will not give you any type of warmth protection from the water. The one I am suggesting to you does have the sun protection and will also give you about 2mm of warmth. If you have any other questions or would like to place an order please feel free to give us a call at 1.800.347.2822.

  • Tiffany:

    Does this suit have stirrups to keep the legs from riding up?

    Arthur  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello, yes they do.

  • Doryann:

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    You'll want to look in the wetsuit section of our website or contact our instructors at info@scuba.com for more advice.

  • Lonnie:

    Hi! Will this suit keep me warm while snorkeling in La Paz this December? The water temperature is supposed to be between 65-75 degrees.

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    No, 6 or 8oz lycra material will not add any warmth. You need a 17oz or 0.5mm material or the Lavacore material for added warmth.

  • Gail:

    what size would I need if I am 55 and weight between 185-190

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Gail, first off when you are sizing a wetsuit/dive skin the two most important measurements will be your chest/bust and waist. Then height will be a secondary measurement and weight you throw out the window. Weight has nothing to do with the sizing of a wetsuit. If you have any other questions or would like to place an order please feel free to give us a call at 1.800.347.2822.

  • Re:

    I am going to the Galapagos Island in August. Looking at the Henderson Lycra Dive Skin Jumpsuit. I have a Promate now. I am approximately 56 weight 160. Looking at the chart, I see a Large would be the size. Is this correct?

    Clarke  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Re, Thank you for your inquiry! I have checked the sizing chart and based on the information you have provided, I am recommending the Medium Henderson Lycra Dive Skin Jumpsuit per the Sizing Chart. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-44/010599/Henderson-Lycra-Dive-Skin-Jumpsuit.html If you would like to place an order or have questions about our products, please contact one of our certified Dive Instructors at SCUBA.com by calling 800-247-2822 <> 949-221-9300 or e-mail us at: info@scuba.com

  • don:

    will a dive skin jumpsuit keep your skin dry?

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    No, you will still get wet. the suit is designed to protect you from the sun and light abrasion.

  • Steve:

    Does this skin have color on the leg portion? The web site photo only shows the upper body. I would like to see the entire suit. TNX

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Accent color only on the top half of the suit.

  • Norm:

    Q #1=In the q&a on the Henderson dive skin part#L807UF Renate asks what the material weight of this suit is ? as Renate uses an example that some dive skins are noted to be 6oz. Dive instructor Bill says this 17oz dive skin (about 2 mm) is also a 6oz weight material. That being said which would be the correct answer ? Is the Henderson 17oz not a thicker material than the 6oz ? Q #2 = I see you also sell a .5mm wetsuit and would like to know how much thicker , warmer etc. , would that suit be than the 6oz or 17 oz dive skin ? Look forward to hearing back from you so I know as Im thinking on purchasing a little heavier skin than the Bare 6oz I bought from scuba.com in 2012. Thank you. Norm

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hi Norm, Here is an answer to your first question: A 6oz weight material provides no warmth in the water it helps slide your suit on easier, protects from jelly fish stings and from UV sun rays. The 17 oz has all the same features as the 6oz. However, the 17oz gives you warmth comparable to the warmth of a 2mm suit (without adding buoyancy) typically these have a fuzzy inner lining and are much thicker than the 6oz. Here is an answer to your second question: The .5mm is about as thick as a t-shirt my guess for ounces would be something in the range to 10-13 ounces. The .5mm wetsuit provides warmth however you lose the feature of using it to slide on another suit. One of the big things I like about the 17oz suits is they help way more sliding on another suit with providing additional warmth and very easy to put on. One of the big things I like about the .5mm neoprene suits is that they dry way faster than the 17oz suits because the .5mm suits are made of neoprene. The 17oz suits are as easy as putting on the lycra suits with the same flexibility however with the .5mm to 1mm suits it requires little more effort to put on and a little less flexibility than the 17oz skin. At this point it’s more of your preference. If you are going to be doing multiple dives per day using it as your primary suit it would be nice to have a faster drying neoprene suit but if that’s not a consideration you would be very happy with the 17oz suit.

  • Renate:

    What thickness is this henderson skin? All the others have their weight/thickness advertised (6oz, etc.). This would be helpful. Thanks.

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    This is also a 6 oz material.

  • Jim:

    I am going on a three month and will be diving at the Great Barrier Reef and The Abel Tasman Park. Yeaa... I want to buy a Diving Skin and the Henderson Lyrica Dive Skin Jumpsuit seems like a great product an attractive price. I am concerned about buying the right size because I wont have time to return it and get another one if it doesnt fit. I weight 190 lbs. and I am 511" tall. What size should I order? Also, some of the reviews of other dive skins products might be uncomfortable and tight around the neck. Has anyone experienced this probnlem. Your feedback will be appreciated. Thanks Jim

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Jim, when sizing this item. The chest and waist are the 2 most important measurements. Height is secondary and weight you throw out the window.

  • Joanna:

    I am interested in one of your diving suits. I weigh about 127, and am 5 ft. 6 in. tall. I will use it in the tropics of Ecuador, so what millimeter thickness do you recommend. Thanks.

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Joanna, the suit that I would suggest for you if you are looking for a little added warmth is the Henderson 17oz Superior Polyolefin Dive Skin Jumpsuit web link: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-44/010629/Henderson-17oz-Superior-Polyolefin-Dive-Skin-Jumpsuit.html. If you are just looking for sun protection then this suit will work very well for you.

  • Jim:

    I am looking to buy a moderately priced but good snorkel that prevents water from entering from waves and there are a number of products out there from $15-40$. I am looking for a good product in the $20-30 $. Does anyone have any advise here? Thanks, Jim

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Jim, the snorkel I would suggest for you is the XS Scuba Sedona Dry Snorkel web link: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-39/039128/XS-Scuba-Sedona-Dry-Snorkel.html.

  • Peter:

    Im wondering about the right size to buy. Im 57", weight: 165 lbs, chest: 40" and waist: 36". I guess these suits have to fit tight ? Thanks for any comments.

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    The waist and chest are the most important measurements for the fit with a suit. 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.

  • Timothy:

    I have a Henderson 2XL(S)Thermoprene Jumpsuit what would be the best dive skin to wear underneath I am not looking for additional warmth

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    This is the best one to get.

  • Bob:

    How thick is this and what is the "Lycra"? I have Henderson Lycra hood, that has a label showing the material is 90% neoprene and 10% spandex. Its extremely thin but works. Ive seen some light weigh dive skins (without the fuzzy stuff) that look similar. Is this the same material as my "Lycra" hood by Henderson?

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Same 6oz material as the hood.

  • Maaria:

    is this particular suit full body or shortie? thanks

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Full suit.

  • jacklyn:

    I have a 5mm wetsuit looking for a dive skin for extra warmth, to go under my wet suit for cold water, which product do you suggest?

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    This dive skin will offer little to no additional thermal protection. A thicker or heavier skin will always add more warmth. For a more complete look at available products please contact our instructors at info@scuba.com or 800-34SCUBA

  • Marie:

    I am looking at purchasing the Henderson Lycra Dive Skin Jumpsuit for snorkeling in the Bahamas in late September. I am very fair skinned and was wondering if it provides sun protection.

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Yes a 6 to 8oz material is about 50 SPF.

  • George:

    My son, age 14, 58" 130 lbs, waist about 30, always gets chilled after first dive. Thinking of getting him a skin for extra thermal layer. Having anything that would work for his size? Adult charts have him between a small and medium

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    A typical Lycra Dive Skin isn't going to help. Unless you get into the 13 ounce or 17 ounce polyolefin suits they don't have much in the way of thermal properties.

  • Julio:

    i want to purchase this wetsuithowever, for the waist measurement should i measure the largest part of the waist (belly) or the actual waist. 2,- i would like to know if i can get a different color than full black - for example -blue suit with any color stripe, yellow suit with any color stripe, pink with any color stripe(for my wife), gloves in blue or any other color, 3,- are they 6 onz, 17 onz, .5 mm, etc. thanks

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Typically I like to use the Levi's waist size as my sizing. The manufacturer's will advise not to use pant size, but I've found over the years that Levi's run pretty true in inches to the waist measurement scuba manufacturers use. I've yet to have it be wrong. For the colors, unfortunately the only thing we have to offer is a black base suit with the colored stripe. The stripe color can be yellow, Blue, Green, Pink or Purple.

  • thomas:

    Hi. I love to snorkel around boston during summer. My dive wet suit is flamboyant and hot in the warmer trampoline resurface were I spend most of the time snorkelling. The water is still cold and I need a skin type wet suit withhold can you help me with suggestions? Thanks

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Thomas, the suit you are asking about will not give you any type of thermal protection. If you are looking for a suit that will give you a little warmth then I would suggest the Henderson 17oz Superior Polyolefin Dive Skin Jumpsuit web link: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-44/010629/Henderson-17oz-Superior-Polyolefin-Dive-Skin-Jumpsuit.html.

  • jeff:

    I am a 60", 180 lb man. What size do I wear ?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Jeff, 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.

  • judy:

    Do you have suits for children, age 11?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Judy, here is the link to all of the kids suits: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-65/Kidz-Gear-Neoprene-and-Skins.html. When you are sizing a suit the two most important measurements are your chest and waist. Height is a secondary measurement and weight is the last measurement you take into account.

  • D:

    what size should i if i am 52" and 125 lbs?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello DT, when you are sizing a wet suit 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.

  • Jim:

    When wearing a dive skin should one also wear a bathing suit under it?

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    That would be a matter of preference and could be dictated by where you''d be removing the skin when finished wearing it.

  • Ted:

    I am going to Fiji and just want a lightweight .5 mm skin for a little warmth as well as rash guard. Do not want or need a wetsuit. What do you advise?

    Arthur  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello, these jumpsuits are only for protection from coral, jelly fish and uv ray''s and are also great for getting a wetsuit on and off. They have no warmth.

  • Maureen:

    I am going on a trip to Cancun in late September 2014. I will be snorkeling and wanted a suit that would keep me warm along with providing cover so that I dont get burned. What would you recommend? It looks like by weight I will need a 6X size suit.

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    This suit will keep the sun off, but will provide little to no thermal help. You''d want to look at more of a 3mm or 3/2mm full wetsuit for warmth as well as sun protection.

  • Murray:

    Im looking at the dive skins and I know chest then waist then height ,if so would I not have a lot of extra material ? Using the size chart I need a 3xl chest and a lg waist but Im only 58" . What size do I buy?

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    You have to fit it toward the extreme. If you go for the Large, then you won''t be able to zip it closed. The manufacturers figure that long legs and cuffs can be pushed or rolled up if need be.

  • Ken:

    I need a dive skin but I dont know what size to get. My wet suit is a XL. Im 56" an my 6pk has changed into a 44" keg. But my waste is 38" and Im short. Please let me know if I need a XL or 2X. Thanks

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    We sound very similar in size, except I''''m on the taller size. The XL should fit you perfectly.

  • Anna:

    Id like to use this Lycra suit for sun protection and maybe jellyfish while swimming in the Sea of Cortez, so I am interested in ease of movement while raising my arms in crawl stroke. Any comments?

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    It should work perfectly

  • Roger:

    Hi. I have a sizing question. Im kind of in between sizes. Im 6, 34" waist, 44" chest and 195 lbs. Can you recommend a size? XL maybe?

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Size XL in this skin.

  • Sarah:

    im looking for a new dive skin and trying to determine the size. my issue is that while my chest and waist are fairly small, i have an impressive butt and large thighs. the size chart for this dive skin does not mention the hip size. my current skin is stretched out around the hips and has a hole in the crotch. (i dont know what size i ordered. i believe its a neosport m.) my hip measurement is about 41". even though height and weight dont matter heres those measurements anyway: 55" and 137lbs. what size skin should i order?

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    We would lean more to a size Medium suit.
