I bought a henderson insta dry wetsuit, and the thing is a nightmare to get on, I have to have my buddy help me get in it. Will it get easier in time to get into? Or should I have gone with the hyperstretch?
By the way I'm a bigger guy I had to buy the xxl size to fit me although the legs are a little long on it.
I use the insta dry gloves, and while I love them for their warmth, even they are a pain to get on and off. I can't even imagine what the fullsuits are like. As others have said, definitely try a skin. Or a different wetsuit
To the OP, there is a larger issue here, and that is being comfortable in your wetsuit. If it is just about getting it on that is the problem, a number of solutions have been mentioned. But if you aren't comfortable in general in the wetsuit, definitely get something else. So many options out there, there is no reason to 'suffer'.
