Neosport by Henderson 1.5mm XSPAN Super-Stretch Wetsuit Shorts
Rating: xspan shorts 1.5mm 01/16/2012
Excellent innovation! I use these with a vest or short sleeve pull over of the the same material for free diving, snorkelign and swimming. One thing: the xspan is sooo stretchy that you can find yourself getting out of the water with water bags in your shorts! But this is a small inconvenience. Also the stretchy material tends to hold small particles of mineral or coral sand, this usually can be shaken out once it is dry. No problem. -Alex
Henderson 3mm Thermoprene Front Zip Shorty Wetsuit
Rating: thermoprene shorty step in 01/16/2012
Having had earlier Henderson step-in shorties, I like the added stretch/flex of this product for swimming and snorkeling. It is also fine for some scuba activites as well. However, the zipper tailoring leaves something to be desired. A bit too much bunching in the front. There is no need for this and their earlier models did not have this problem. Also the matchup of the bottom edge on the zippered leg side is a bit too sloppy. -Alex
