    I had an impossible time finding and off the rack wetsuit that would fit me well, so my LDS, sent me to WetWear. I got a 3 mil suit with wrist and ankle gaskets, a lumbar pad and expandable hip pockets. the ez off zipper in the back, and zippers on the arms to elbow and ankle to above the knee, makes this without a doubt the easiest wet suit i ever tried to put on or off. While i am in NY, this being a Custom suit, the final fit could have been done by my LDS, but I ended up in Hollywood, FL in a timely manner to get final fit in there factory/showroom. while there, I got a lesson on closed cell neoprene and blended neoprene and why they use closed cell neoprene- namely little to no compression- I am able to dive to deeper depths, in colder waters, with thinner suit. I have already used the suit a number of times. including a quarry dive to about 110' -cold water -
    I love the suit- although to do winter diving, I will probably have them make me a 5mil short. BTW, if you call and Speak with Connie- she the boss - Thanks Connie
