Reviewer: Marcus LyngGood price, nice construction, lousy fit - I bought this wetsuit to use in warmer waters since I spend so much time under I was getting chilled in a thinner wetsuit of the same style. I was impressed with the low price and it being a Henderson so I choose it over its counterparts made by Aqualung and Sherwood. When I received it I thought the basic neoprene (Non- stretch neoprene) design was straight forward and all the seams and glueing looked good. Using it on my first two dive I quickly named it the Steroid Suit, because you would have to be a body builder on steroids for it to fit well. The chest is too large and I would have needed an extra inch or two of girth to fill out the suit and get a nice tight fit. This amused me...View Full Review
Reviewer: George SmithNice Suit, but I cant deal with back zip! - This is a nice suit. Very well made. The neoprene, particularly on the legs, is well-formed for a persons anatomy. It is also extremely flexible for such thickness. Price is right, too. However, with the the inherent stiffness of a suit like this, I find it very uncomfortable unless stripped to the waist - even in the diving position, with the suit fully zipped, I find it very tight around my neck - almost to the point of choking. Perhaps it is just a question of individual fit. I ordered this suit, as the picture on-line was of a front-zip suit. After some research, I found out this is the way Mares makes them for the European market, but in North America, they come only back zip....View Full Review
Reviewer: Edwina N.Aqua Lung 7mm AquaFlex Super-Stretch Wetsuit for 2014 Review - $430.00 - Scuba Gear Customer Reviews - I always expect the best products from Aqua Lung and this wetsuit is no exception! I purchased a womans size 7-8 and it fit true to size. However, I found the size guide on Scuba.com to be a little misleading as the size guide on Aqua Lungs site have suit-specific guidelines. I dive in frigid North Atlantic waters, and have only used a drysuit so far this year. However, I have used this suit while winter surfing and am delighted to say that I felt warm the entire time. I was out for a little over an hour and managed to stay relatively warm in 3 degree Celsius water temps. Its easy to get in and out of and have extra layers on the elbows and knees to ensure warmth. Its hard to find suits...View Full Review
Reviewer: Wynand PretoriusKeeps the cold out... - This is my first 7mm suit. It goes on tight (helps if you have a dive skin on underneath) but once it has settled you hardly notice the suit is on. in the water it just works. a little water wicks in and then it is just warm and comfortable. I use to shiver an shake after 20 minutes in the pool (70 deg Fahrenheit) but now, 1h:40min and I am still good to go. The sizing of the charts is good, I am 64" and 220lb and the Large-Tall fits like a glove... Good wet-suit, good price, to buy will be an investment for you...View Full Review
Reviewer: Barry S.Very comfortable and warm - Hello - Im new to scuba here in the Northeast. Needed a minimum of 7mm suit plus wanted to have easy entry/exit so I would not need anyones help with the zipper. This suit looks and feels great - very comfortable, true to size chart, extremely warm and easy to get on or off by yourself. Yes - of course water gets into a semi dry wetsuit - but because of the neck, wrist and ankle seals - you really dont get much flushing of new water so you feel very warm and comfortable. While taking my open water cert dives in 53 degree water a few weeks ago - the instructors were freezing in their 7mm wet suits but I was nice and comfy. The 10 year warranty is great for peace of mind on getting the...View Full Review
Reviewer: Chris K.Excellent Value - Im 63", 275 lbs and by the charts I should be a 4XL. Ive found that the Henderson 3XL fits me just about right. This NeoSport is snug on the thighs and stomach but a little loose on the ankles and wrists. Thats ok, because my boots and gloves then fit under nicely. I just used this in the quarry for a class. The water temperature was 40F. Brrr. I also wore 7mm boots, 5mm gloves, and a 5/3mm hooded vest. The combo of this suit and the hooded vest was perfect. Very little water circulation. I lasted 45 minutes before needed to go in. I give this 5 stars because it performed very well and the cost was very low.
Reviewer: cnenovExcellent wetsuit, men/small - I am 59", 150 lbs and the small size fit perfectly. It was not too difficult to put on, and felt very comfortable under water. Combined with the Ocean Quest 7/5 hood, 7mm boots, and 5mm gloves I did not feel cold during two back-to-back dives at 55 ft, 61F at surface, 63F at depth, 45 min each.
Reviewer: Cindy GarbAkona 7mm Quantum Stretch Wetsuit Review - $274.95 - Scuba Gear Customer Reviews - i have been diving cold water for 4 years now with 7mm pinnacle and bare suits, which i still love but this is by far the most economical and comfortable suit yet. i am currently diving 54-60 degree water in this suit comfortably. this suit is extremely stretchy and there is no penguin effect in this 7mm. very easy to don and dof as well.
Reviewer: Don C.Excellent Suit! - The Aqua lock system is Fantastic! Did 5 dives here in the Northeastern US, in this suit. Including one night and one deep dive (74ft). Water temp was 58 degrees. The suit kept me very warm. Im convinced colder water would not have affected me. The interlocking of the suit with the gloves and boots, traps just enough water for your body to warm it and keep it there. My entire dive party complained of being cold, but not me. Fleece lining makes it a breeze to put on even when wet and it dries quick.i highly recommend this suit!
Reviewer: richard h.A wetsuit made by divers for divers - This is my 4th suit that I own by Waterproof. I am an Assistant Instructor which simply means I spend a lot of time in the water and my suits get abused. These things are awesome. I currently have a 7mm, 5mm and a shorty. This newest one I bought just because it was a great deal and one day I will need to put it into action. I dive Monterey and am more than comfortable all day long in this 7mm. After my first purchase a year and a half ago I have not pulled out my custom made suit once and probably never will. Worth every penny.
Reviewer: Chad N.Hollis 8/7/6mm Neotek Semi-Dry Super-Stretch Wetsuit with Attached Hood Review - $399.95 - Scuba Gear Customer Reviews - I am 6 and 230 lbs. I bought the XXXL it fits well. Waters around here range between 40 - 67 deg. I am comfortable diving in it with a rash guard on underneath. The thigh pockets are a nice size for my camera.
Reviewer: william arthurXCEL 8/7/6/5mm Polar Hydroflex Wetsuit with Attached Hood Review - $389.95 - Scuba Gear Customer Reviews - I really like this suit. Keeps me warm. The only thing I would change would be the hood its a little too big for my head theres any way we can get a smaller one please let me know but other than that Id give this a 5 star rating thank you for your time
Reviewer: Victoria K.Pinnacle 7mm Cruiser Titanium Wetsuit Review - $249.95 - Scuba Gear Customer Reviews - I have used the Pinnacle 7mm Cruiser wetsuit in the Monterey Bay, and it kept me warm. I appreciate having the option of the King sizes, since I was having difficulty finding a suit to fit.
Reviewer: Norris H.Finally! - I tried 2 other 7mm wetsuits prior to this and had to send them back. ($30 each time!). The Mares 8/6 zipped up in front and I tried for 45 minutes to get it off at home and had to call a co-worker to get it off! No way do I want help in getting a wetsuit off! Also, the stomach area was WAY too big. The Henderson is just perfect! Pay attention to the companys individual sizing. Bare is for short people, I think.
Reviewer: Barry K.Dove the Blue Hole in NM, warm suit ! - Bought this suit online and it shipped the next day. Arrived on time with no problems. The price was very good for a 7mm. I did not expect the quality to so what it is for the price. It is made by Henderson so the seems are great. I went diving at the Blue Hole in N.M. The first week of November, the water temp is like 60 and the air was even colder! The suit kept me warm in the water and out. Would I buy this again? I would a d probably will.
Reviewer: Kathy K.Seac 7mm Techspan I-Flex Wetsuit Review - $299.00 - Scuba Gear Customer Reviews - I ordered this suit for 50 degree, surgy, and current water conditions. I did 3 dives per day for 2 days. The fit was good and using some soapy water I was able to slip it on and off easily. I would recommend this suit to anyone.
