Reviewer: zong-guang s h. on 10/27/2014Great active sport suit. - Similar in function to the Lavacore Oceanic Trilaminate Polytherm I also tried out, but this has wool in it in. Makes a difference? I cant really tell, but its in there. The biggest difference is that theres no zipper in the front or back. The only zipper is behind the neck for attaching the optional hood or neck collar. (Mine came with the neck collar) This suit is like a giant balloon, and you climb in though the neck! This is a much stretchy than the Lavacore and fits better. After you stick your legs in, the arms go in and finally, the suit wraps around the shoulders for a complete burrito wrap feeling. Very inventive. Works well and at 75+F can probably last for hours in the...View Full Review
Reviewer: R P. on 1/20/2015Lavacore Experience - I recently purchased a LavaCore wetsuit, based solely on what I had read, for my trip to Thailand. I was not disappointed! It performed very well under the demanding conditions of a live-aboard. It kept me warm and dried quickly in between dives on a wet dive deck with only a sea breeze. We were doing 4 dives per day including night dives and dawn dives. It was lightweight to pack and cushioned my other gear during the 30+ hours of transit through 5 different airports and 3 different countries on 4 different airplanes. My only "negative comment" was that it fit so well, I had some difficulty taking it off in between dives without assistance, on the front zip model. I am looking...View Full Review
Reviewer: Michael H. on 1/6/2012OceanQuest Lycra Dive Skin Jumpsuit - the order was processed lightening fast plus free delivery! four hours after placing the order online i received an e-mail that it was shipped. i checked tracking and it was in transit early the next day. cant ask for anything better. i like the oceanquest lycra dive skin jumpsuit because of the front zipper. a major problem with many scuba exposure suits is being too tight around my neck. the front zipper allows me to keep it open a couple of inches at the neck so it doesnt feel too tight. im a tweener since the sizing guidelines said the medium is kinda small and the large is kinda big. too big and we defeat the purpose of the base layer so i got the medium. its really a second skin...View Full Review
Reviewer: James G. on 7/1/2014Henderson Lycra Dive Skin Jumpsuit - I like this jumpsuit a lot. However, the tallest size is advertised to fit up to 62". I am 64" and weigh 170 pounds (tall and skinny). A sales rep in the store told me over the phone to buy the size Large. I tried both the Large and the X-Large, and they were both too short. The 2X-Large turned out to be pretty darned good. I think a taller version might have been a little better, but I was very happy with the 2XL as it stretched to fit my height. I used it every day for a week of snorkeling and swimming and was very happy to have it.
Reviewer: Joan D. on 1/22/2015Henderson 17oz Superior Polyolefin Dive Skin Jumpsuit Review - $118.99 - Scuba Gear Customer Reviews - I have had one of these for years for warm water diving as I am always cold. My daughter borrowed mine this November in the Caribbean and loved it.She did not want the extra buoyancy of a wetsuit So, i ordered one for her for Christmas. Fits well, comfortable and warm. A great product.
Reviewer: David G. on 2/2/2014Sizing issues - The Lavacore sizing chart is way off. According to the chart a Medium would be plenty big for me. However, I could not even squeeze into the Medium or ML. Twice had to exchange for a larger size, and ended up in an XL, a full two sizes higher than the chart suggested. As far as the wetsuit goes, its a very warm and comfortable wetsuit! Im glad I persisted in finding the right size.
