My 13 yr old son is about 5"8" and 118 pounds. Very small waist, and pretty narrow all over. He needs something for early outside swim team practice. Id also like for him to use it this summer scuba diving in the caribbean, but he could always rent for our week vacation. What size? Will this bother him when he swims laps for 2 hours straight?
The waist and chest sizes are going to the be the 2 most important sizes on the chart to ensure a proper fit. After that, height is a secondary measurement. Weight is only useful to help tip the scales one way or another if you are borderline between sizes. It is a triathlon suit, so it designed for longer swims. It should work well for him.
Hi, Im 58", 175 pounds. What size would fit me best? I want to use for spring lakes for swimming and boating. Thank you Tim
The 2 most important measurements when sizing a wetsuit will always be your waist and your chest/bust measurements. After that height is a secondary measurement as the mfg. knows that in a full suit boots and gloves can overlap the ends, and in a shorty suit it doesn't matter. Your weight plays very little in the sizing of a wetsuit other than to possibly tip the scales one way or another if you are on the border between 2 choices.
