10/27/2018 I'm 5', 162 pounds. Will a LARGE accommodate me? And would cutting the legs to shorten cause the suit to unravel? Edit
Update your question: Content is required.

A large would accommodate your weight. We would not recommend slicing the neoprene seem as it may unravel. You would have to have some material to re-seal the seam. But again, we would not recommend doing so.

08/30/2018 I am 5'9"" 141 lbs chest 36 I bought a medium but wonder if I need a large. How do I get into a wet suit Edit
Update your question: Content is required.

Putting on a wetsuit takes patience and time. Give yourself 5-10 minutes. Important items to remember before slipping into your suit:

  • Ensure your fingernails are trimmed.

  • Make sure you are completely dry.

  • The shiny surface goes on the outside.

  • Optional: Before putting on suit, apply anti-chafing spray or another lubricant on your body to make pulling it on and off easier.

The Steps:

  1. Fasten zipper up about an inch before you begin putting on wetsuit. This will make it easier to pull the zipper all the way up once it is on.
    2. Put both feet through the leg holes. One at a time, pull the wetsuit up to your knees. Do not try to pull the wetsuit on in one go. Instead, pull the neoprene in small sections.
    3. Pull your wetsuit up over thighs while still pulling a small amount of neoprene at a time.
    4. Finish pulling your wetsuit up the torso and begin to put arms through each sleeve, one at a time.
    5. While putting on over arms, continue to adjust small amounts of neoprene at a time.Note: Sleeves do not necessarily have to go to your wrist.
    6. Zip the wetsuit up by the long zipper strap and fasten Velcro flap.
    7. Make final adjustments to ensure your comfort. Pull up any excess neoprene on front and back of wetsuit.

06/26/2018 I am 5'8", approx 147 lbs with chest 35 in, waist 28 in, hips 37 in, and overall lean but curvy. Will medium fit? Edit
Update your question: Content is required.

A size medium will accommodate a height of 5'5"-5'10", weight of 132-147 lbs, and a chest measurement of 35"-37". :) Customers report this product to be true to size, but please note that it is designed as a tight-to-the-body fit.

05/18/2018 I'm so confused. I have the Orca open water suit that looks exactly like this, but is not a "core". Is the Core warmer? Edit
Update your question: Content is required.

They are both the same thickness of neoprene but the "core" will retain body heat longer.
