Aqua Lung 5mm AquaFlex Super-Stretch Wetsuit
Rating: AquaFlex Flexes 9/23/2013
Yes, this suit is truly "super-stretch"! Seriously, its like no wetsuit I have used over the past 30 years. Here are the benefits of the stretchiness: First, no more struggle to get into the suit. Dont worry about the lack of ankle/wrist zippers, they are unnecessary with this material. Second, it conforms to your individual body contours, keeping you warm. Third, and fairly obvious, the freedom of movement in and out of the water is excellent. This is my second AquaFlex. I have a 7mm that I use for cool water (I go to a drysuit in cold water). I bought the 5mm for use in Cozumel, where I find my 3mm suit leaves me a bit chilled on the second dive (I chill easily). As to size, given the wide range available, and the flexibility of the material, you will find something that fits. After looking at the chart, if you seem to be between sizes, I recommend going to the larger of the two. Pay more attention to the height than the weight indicated.
Ocean Quest 2mm Premium Super-Stretch Titanium Dive Beanie
Rating: Cheap Insurance 1/28/2013
i bought this beanie for a january trip to cozumel where a little extra warmth can be nice just in case the sun isnt blazing between dives. as it turned out i wore it for all dives (in addition to my 3 mm suit) because... i just like to be warm. a few times on the trip back to the dock i fastened the side flaps up and continued to wear it like...a beanie. being from northern michigan (land of the dry suit) i really appreciate efficient ways to keep warm and comfortable in and out of the water and if you try to tough your way through getting cold you will lose. and we all know how much heat is lost from the head, right? so buy this beanie and stick in in your bag. btw, its comfy and well made.
