    Custom Made Wetsuits

    Not sure if this should be in the Philippines forum or the Equipment forum but as I'm looking for Philippine specific answers I'll try here first

    Does anyone know of a place that does custom wetsuits in the Philippines? I'm based in Bohol so anywhere accessible from Cebu is best or further afield if they take web orders and deliver.

    The wetsuit is for me (I'm a funny shape) but also I want to get logo rashguards and slapstraps for the shop.
    I'd rather be out diving...

    You could try contacting Brian Homan's guys at Magellan's in Subic Bay Vascos Resort and Museum, Subic Bay, Philippines - Contact Us

    They certainly used to do stuff like that.

    Let me know how it turns out as I might do some stuff as well.

    Sarah / Matt,

    There's Adin in Manila who can make most custom suits - I've just had a custom two piece Farmer John and Jacket made and couldn't be happier - His contact number is +63 919 255 3444.

    Prices are more than off the shelf suits but seems well worth it as the materials and workmanship on his suits are excellent.

    Obviously this isn't too close by, but I'm sure he could send a copy of the measurements required then LBC the suit over too you or something similar.

    Hope that helps,

    Karl

    You may want to try a wetsuit made entirely from hyperstretch material aka CR Neoprene. These are way more stretchable (150% stretch) as compared to locally available SBR Neoprene (50% stretch) quality.
    Options are AKONA Quantum Wetsuit or Scubapro Everflex among others.

    Hope this helps.
