Yesterday I took my measurements so that I can order a drysuit from DiveTank. I am looking at the DUI CLX450. I thought I would fit into a small stock size, but now I am questioning that. Below is the size of the DUI small drysuit. My measurement is in parenthesis.
Height 66 (66)
Chest 35-37 (34.5)
Waist 33-35 (29.5)
Hips 32-34 (32)
Spine to Wrist 28-29 (27.5)
Crotch to Floor 34-35 (28)
Shoe 8-9 (7)
For the most part, it looks like the small will fit fine. The shoes are a little big - but I am not too concern because I can layer on the socks. However, the "crotch to floor" measurement really worries me. I know I have a longer torso compared to my wife, but I don't think I have short legs by any means. I think I have proportional measurements for a guy. I can't imagine a guy who is only 5'6" having a crotch to floor measurement of 34-35. Is DUI's measurement correct? Am I missing something? BTW - I fit into a lot of small (or xsmall) wetsuit just fine.
On another note, I am rather surprise that DUI's women size are very good. My wife has a 44.5" chest, but DUI's XXL only has a chest of 41-42. Do they think that most women who dives are flat chested? Looks like she will need either the select suit (or a custom suit $$$$).
Contact DUI and give them your information. I did the same and told them I was willing to get a custom suite if that is what they recommended. They responded back and said based on my measurements save some money and get a stock TLS350. I was pleased with their honesty. I was willing to shell out some more money to get a better fit but they said the stock suite would be perfect. They were correct by the way.
