Is this slate suitable for a petite woman's forearm/wrist? What are the dimensions of the slate that will wrap around(?) the forearm?
JAMES O I have a very small wrist for a man and the slate works just fine. However I don't dive without a wetsuit or drysuit so my forearm is always covered prior to using the slate. I've never tried to use the slate without an exposure suit. Sorry I don't know the dimensions.
DAVID M Unfortunately, it's not even made to fit the wrist of The Hulk. The curvature would fit about a 14" forearm (okay, maybe the Hulk...). Now, saying that, the slate really is fantastic, after I modified it. Take a regular hair dryer to it for about 5 min and it becomes slightly pliable. I just kept at it and slowly I rolled the bottom slate down so it would fit my forearm. Then I glued a very thin piece of neoprene to it (to make is sticky with my skin-suit) and ta-da, custom slate.
Between writing misc info for me (underwater photography) and getting info to and from my dive buddy, I won't go diving without it. I've went through a number of slates and after modding this one, it's by far the best.
As a side, you can use a Magic Eraser (the household cleaning thingy) to clean these slates to brand new.
SARAH B I don't know the dimensions, but it fits mine just fine and my forearms are skinny.
ROBERT F It's one size fits all. The elastic band hold it to any size wrist/forearm. Do you wear a wetsuit?
TED S It will be very loose on a petite womans forearm. Might even be loose on the bicep. The only time it fit snug on me ( 5'10" and 195lbs.) was while wearing my drysuit.
