Questions and Answers for Head 2.5mm Wave Mens Shorty Wetsuit:

  • Lon:

    Im 63 year old male, 58", about 151 lbs, 38.25" chest, and my waist (at my belly button with my old-age bulging stomach) is about 36.5", but my pants (I wear hip length pants) are a 32" "waist," but thats really a hip measurement, not a waist measurement. Should I be looking at a "small" for a tight fit, or a medium?

    Aaron  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hi Lon, Based off he measurements that you gave us. We'd recommend a medium for you.

  • Luca:

  • Jan:

    hi- my husband would want this suit for swimming laps in an indoor pool. he is very skinny and gets cold after about a half hour. my question is -can he use this for regular swimming? he has a swim t shirt but not sure if it is working as well as something else might. he is 510" and weighs 120 lbs. thanks for any info you can give me. i hope this isnt a stupid question. :)

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Jan, When you are sizing a wet suit or dive skin the two most important measurements are your chest/bust and waist. Height is a secondary measurement and weight is the last measurement you would take into account. Yes this suit would work year round as long as the temp is above 70 degree. If it is lower than that I would suggest for you the: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-42/150595/Pinnacle-5mm-Escape-5-Front-Zip-Mens-Shorty-Wetsuit.html that would work for 60 degree and up.

    Advise on shorty wetsuits. I am 5-07" 170lbs 35 waist 38 chest Live in Hawaii. Which size?

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    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.

  • Kevin:

    Wanting to purchase this Head 2.5mm Wave shorty for Caribbean diving, but concerned about sizing. My vitals are 42" chest, 34 waist, 38.5 hips.......60, 190 lbs, and was leaning towards the LARGE. I wear large in other make/model full suits, but realize materials and manufacturers differ. Would appreciate any sizing input you can provide. Want to avoid the dreaded too big wetsuit that floods with too much water.

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Kevin, yes going by your measurements you would be a size large in this suit.

  • Jerry:

    Hi, I am looking at the Head 2.5 mm shorty and the Scuba pro 2.5 mm shorty. I am 5 11" tall, weigh 172lbs. 39"chest, 34" waist. What sizes should I order for these two suits?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Jerry, in the Head suit you would be a size Large. In the ScubaPro suit you would be a size Medium.
