Reviewer: Marcus Lyng on 2/18/2014Good 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 Smith on 10/6/2014Nice 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. on 1/26/2015Aqua 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: kenneth s. on 9/15/2014scuba pro 7/5mm everflex hooded fit - the suit is a size 3x. using the size chart was the right size, in normal clothing i wear a 2x. my only concern was length, however this proved unfounded. chart said from 62" to 64". i am 61/2" no problem at all. putting it on is a little more effort than a farmer john. getting the hood over my head took a little effort, since it is attached to the suit. and zipping the front zipper was a little difficult, this was due to the everflex material, you have to squeeze the material together with one hand and with the other zip it up. once it was on it was a very comfortable suit. ...View Full Review
Reviewer: Barry S. on 6/10/2013Very 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. on 4/13/2014Excellent 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: Cindy Garb on 1/3/2015Akona 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: cnenov on 12/17/2014Excellent 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: Jason G. on 4/5/2014Aqualock review - Simply amazing "locking" system. As much as the choice and fit of a wetsuit is a personal thing, the aqua-lock system delivers. Theres no slippage of gloves, boots or hood giving a snug and not slack feeling of security and comfort. Loads of sizing possibilities meant I was able to choose a wetsuit that fit me personally...oh, and 7mm - VERY warm! I dive at altitude and in glacial waters quite comfortably with Hendersons 7mm suit.
Reviewer: Peter L. on 7/15/2014Pinnacle 7mm Tempo Merino Elastiprene Super-Stretch Wetsuit Review - $279.00 - Scuba Gear Customer Reviews - I am 5 feet 6 inches tall and I ordered the large short wetsuit. I dive in the northeast in water that is usually below 50F. In 45 degree water the suit seems to keep me comfortable. In water in the 60s it is actually too warm. I was concerned about the fit. The arms and the legs are 1 or 2 inches too long but there are ways you can pull up the neoprene to compensate for that, so I am very happy about the fit.
Reviewer: Chad N. on 1/31/2015Hollis 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 arthur on 11/2/2014XCEL 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. on 12/10/2014Pinnacle 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: Barry K. on 11/3/2013Dove 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. on 7/9/2014Seac 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.
Reviewer: Paul D. on 8/31/2014Very happy - I used this suit for multiple dives in a cold quarry and on a river drift dive trip. It kept me warm even in 50 degree water at the bottom of the quarry. It would be hard to beat for the money. I will buy the 5mm too.
