Rating: Love the Henderson 5mm Thermoprene Farmer John Wetsuit
Reviewer: Robin Domm
I bought this suit for my husband to replace a similar one that he had worn for years. He absolutely loves it. The best features are the zip front and the material is nice and stretchy to get into. In addition, it is part of a 2 piece suit, so depending on the dive, you dont always have to wear the whole suit. I dont understand what is so popular about the back zip one piece suits that I see everyone struggle to get into and then they choke you around the neck. Highly recommend this suit!!

Rating: Excellent Suit for an excellent price
Reviewer: Stephen Fehr  -  View all my reviews
I chose this suit because I prefer the ease of putting on a farmer John vs a one piece. I needed a suit in between my drysuit and a 3 mil. A 5 mil FJ is versatile enough wear I can wear it alone or wear a 1 mil skin underneath. It stretches very well and doesnt feel binding or constricting. This suit is well made, very soft, looks good...so easy to don....and for the price I just couldnt justify a more expensive one piece. As far as fit...it was right on as long as your honest with yourself. Love the suit!

Rating: Henderson Farmer John Wetsuit.
Reviewer: Charles R.  -  View all my reviews
I love the ease of entering and exiting this suit. The elasticity of the material is far better than i expected making the suit very comfortable to wear. The only drawback i can see is they do not offer 4x for the more portly divers and i am borderline on 3x to 4x. The suit is well built for its cost and i would recommend it to anyone under 4x in size. Chuck Raison

Rating: Exchange
Reviewer: Gary Dotson
The Farmer John was too short therefore I had to exchange it for a larger size. One month later I am still waiting for the replacement. Not a great performance folks.

Questions and Answers for Henderson 5mm Thermoprene Farmer John Wetsuit:

  • Jan:

    I currently have an Xtra Large XTERRA Triathlete farmer john wetsuit. The suit is extremely tight to the point that I have trouble breathing. Do you think the 2XL would fit better and provide a little more give/room around the diaphram. I currently have a 37" waist with 47"/48" shoulders. Also the water temp for the fall event I particiapate in is around 62-64 degrees. The swim is 1 mile. Do you think a shorty with half sleeves would be adequate? Please advise.

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Moving up to the 2xl will give you more room in the chest and waist. As for the shorty suit, for actual swimming a sleeveless jumpsuit would work best. Take a look at the Aqua Sphere 1mm. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-598/148731/Aqua-Sphere-1mm-WT60-Super-Stretch-Aqua-Skin-Sleeveless-Jumpsuit.html

    getting a farmer johns wetsuit for my wife...5-7 130-40 athletic biuld...Womens medium???

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Ed, when you size a suit like this the two most important measurements are going to be your chest and waist. Height is a secondary measurement and weight you throw out the window.

  • jamie:

    If I purchase a two piece suit combo (step in jacket and farmer john) should I get the same size in each piece, or should the outer worn step in jacket be one size larger?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Jamie, you would order the same size in the combo.
