Questions about this item:
Looking at the size chart, newer models, and the available options, it seems that the sizing of the foot pocket is standard. Is the Size 10 foot the basic option for the ML and MT sizes? Also, I am 170lbs, 5'10"-5'11", wear a medium shirt, 32x32 pants, and anywhere from 10-11 (American) shoe size. Is one of these options (the 2010 sale models) likely to work for me?
PHILIP M Yes, foot sizes and suit sizes are linked as seen in the chart. You can always go up in suit size, however, until you find the foot size that fits you. I did that because I deco dive deep and am in cold water for longer times than sports dives. I also ice dive. Because of this I bulk up on thermal protection and the larger suit size is perfect for my needs. The booties will stretch a bit. When new I could just squeeze in with a thin sock; now my foot fits comfortably with a wool sock.
If a suit you select doesn't fit well, you can always return it and they will send you one that you deem a better fit.
How well did it work? Were you happy with it?
PHILIP M I'm an instructor and I teach dry suit diving. Instead of how well DID it work, you should ask how well DOES it work, because after five years of use it's still working. It is a rugged suit that takes a beating--ice diving, chlorinated pools, wreck diving. I bought mine because a number of my buddies had bought them; and theirs are still going strong, too. So, yes, I am happy with it, and they are happy with theirs, also.
What are the measurements for a 2x short ?
do you also have a large tall?
Can you wear boots with this dry suit? I need to walk on cobble and barnacals.
ROBERT A Yes, in fact boots would be a strong recommendation for this suit.
PHILIP M Yes. You can get them used for less at Leisure Pro. if you can't afford them, I've seen guys use cheap rubber, or rubber and nylon combat style boots and drill holes in the soles so the water runs out.
ERIC D You can, you would just need to buy a larger set to fit over the feet on the dry suit.
BOBBY J Yes you can wear boots with the Bare nex-gen you can order boots from bare or by a package that comes with boots and insulation.
Hi. I'm 6'1", 270 lbs. with a 42" waist, 48-50" chest; and 12 shoe. My questions what size would be best for me. I'm shorter than most of the sizes that the weight matches up to. should I just go with the size that matches the height or the weight best?
JOHN F In my case the suit sizing chart ran smaller than actual. I would go larger than you think you need.
MIKE E I used the bare size chart I am 6'1" 165 with 34 waist I got a lg and love it had to trim the neck seal but that's normal other than that very comfortable for the price 15 dives with it and love it
MARK R HI Russell, sorry I cannot answer the specifics about size. My son purchased on of these suits and he is 6'3' and about 210 lbs.
I purchased another one of these suits for my wife. the women sizes did not work due to her body size. We used the men's sizing chart. the first suit was too tight. We senty it back and re-ordered the next size up. I went with a sizing that was in excess of the chart size and it worked out well. her leg length is a hair long but she has had no problem. IF anything order the suit and if it fits fine. If not send it back and get the next size bigger.
Both love the suits.
HIGGINS, D Hey Russell, I am 6'4" and bought the XXXL. I think the XXL would do for you. TYhey are plenty big enough in the chest area, I am a 48". I feel this is a great suit and the price is fantastic. I dive year round in Maine and It meet all my needs. Ice diving is cold, but in this suit I stay warm. I use it year round as the waters below 20Ft here are still in the 40's in most lakes and the ocean. Good luck and dive safe!!! Scott PADI OWSI
KRISTIE W I'd go for the height measurement. I'm 5' 8" and I bought an XL and the height is just right. Even the ML size is too short for me. The feet are definitely stretchable so I'd worry the least about that.
Hope that helps.
RICK N Mind you I am just another customer that happens to dive this suit. I was 5' 9 1/2 and 230 when I bought mine and went with the XL short, and it works fine still even being 20 pounds lighter.
Reading your description there are many things pointing to 3XL. I mean you are a big guy and if your chest is as big as you say, then the bigger the better. Also you have to consider shoe size, and the 12 is in the 3XL range.
Lastly, substantial breathing room will be desired considering undergarment. I dive in the PNW and its a little chilly in our waters and this requires pretty thick insulation so the extra room is welcome.
I'm 6'6", 275#, size 13 shoe. Is the 3xl too small?
JURAJ M sorry man can't tell you, I am 6' and size 10 shoe, but generally I'd say bigger is better then smaller, at least that is what girls tell me.
PHILIP M Edwin
When I got my dry suit, LeisurePro's policy allowed you to return it free of charge if it didn't fit, and they would replace it with one that fit. If that's still their policy, you can't go wrong by ordering it. If 3xl is their absolute largest size, however, and they can't give you a proper fit call them and ask if you will be responsible for any charge by returning it. I've always found them to be very informative and helpful.
5'10 207 lbs, xlshort?
10.5 ee shoe will the 10 be to tight?
PHILIP M Robert
Probably too tight, because if you are diving in real cold water you may, like I, wear wool or other heavy socks inside your booties and that will further enlarge your feet. The beauty of LeisurePro, however, is that you can try them on at home and, if they don't fit, send them back for a larger pair of rock boots.
JURAJ M i'd say you need bigger on your feet other then that can't comment, sorry
ROBERT A I normally wear a 9.5D or 10D shoe. I do not remember what size Trek Boot was shipped to me with my original order, but it seemed a bit loose. Leisure-Pro promptly replaced them with a size 10 & it fits fine.
My suit was a large, regular. I am also 5'-10, about 190 lbs.
I have not seen the material of the suit, is this suit material suitable for commercial diving eg hazardous, cold water etc ?
RICHARD P Bare Nex Gen dry suit 2007:
I have found that this dry suit is well suited for any application.
The materials are very durable and flexible, as with all dry suits, it is a
two person operation. For the price, It would be hard to pass this up.

PHILIP M Dave
It is a nylon/polyurethane laminate, thin but durable, excellent for recreational diving. I've done about 50 dives in it, including ice, wreck, and cave diving. I've also done light commercial-type work such as scraping boat bottoms, cleaning the platforms at Dutch Springs, PA, setting buoy lines, 200 pound lift bag work, etc. I would not use it, however for heavier commercial work involving welding, torch cutting, handling frayed steel cables, or in water with oil and harsh chemicals. Crushed neoprene suits are tough and withstand abrasion; rubber suits are also tough and are a good choice when chemicals, oil and fuel are present. Unlike neoprene, rubber suits dry quickly so they can be repaired fast in the field. Both these type suits are heavy, but the Bare 2007 Nex-Gen is lightweight. For the use I put it to, I am very pleased with its performance.
My weight veries from 190 to 225 Im thinking XL short ?
JURAJ M I don't remember which size I had but I sold it quite some time ago, did not like to dive in it, I remember that the cut was not very well done. Would not buy it again.
JAMES W I am similar in size, and that suit fits me well with the polartec thermals. This is a good entry level dry suit for the money, however if you are going to be doing technical bottom work, i would try to go the extra money up front and buy a more durable suit.
DANIEL C Sorry, I am not able to answer that.
MARK A dont get the short depending on your diving when it gets cold you will wish you had the extra room for underwear also many shops sell suits tight tell you its better for stream lining this is bs a suit is desighned to but a cushin of air or argon between you and the water if its to tight defeats the purpose of the suit alsoyou dont need a shoe horn to get in to it
this was a great suit for the buck bought mine in 08 the seals held up to this year great just started showing sighns of cracking easy to repair if you snag it on a wreck little glue and a bike tube patch and good as gold
I'm 5'10", 160lbs, 32" waist and 38" chest. Would the Medium Large, size 10 boots work for me? I'll be wearing fleece pants and jacket under this suit. Thanks.
ERIC L The suit should fit OK, I like mine a little large because I use it for work and need to move around underwater without restrictions. The only consideration I would look at: The neoprene foot is thick enough to add two boot sizes if you are going to wear protection on your feet. I have a size 12 foot and need to wear 14 boots over the dry suit, this makes it difficult to find comfortable fins. I would have rather had the thin silocone feet installed so I can wear my regular boots and fins.
JALMAR A Hi Chris. Go for the M, not ML. I am 6 tall, 180 lbs 40 waist. Also get the MT-100 underwear, size M too...dive safe.
JALMAR A Hi Chris. You will make a good purchase. I've been using mine for 3 years and completely dry. Make sure you put powder on the rubber seals constantly, lubricate the zipper and keep your finger nails short. Regarding the size, I would say a medium would be better for you. I'm 6 tall, 180 pounds and 40 waist and use Medium Large size for the suit . If you buy the Medium Large, it will be too big for you, even with the fleece. I would greatly recommend the MT-100 Polarwear size M for you. I use it size ML...these under suits are extremely comfortable and will keep you very warm. I dive in Boston harbor. Take care and dive safe.
Do the neoprene socks have soles on them or are they shaped just like a sock?
LeisurePro S They are more like a regular sock than anything else. They have some structure, but not like a boot.
Does this come with under wear?
No, undergarments are not included with this suit. Check out these
as one possible option.
What size would be recommended? Chest 44, 6? 0?, 215-220 lbs
LeisurePro S I would recommend the XLarge.
I'm 5'9" 176lbs chest 40 shoe size 8, which size will be good for me?
LeisurePro S You're best bet would be the Medium/Large Short with shoe size nine.
I am 5'10 225 SIZE 10 Also is it a completely dry suit? and would be wearing maybe 2 sweat suits.
LeisurePro S Yes, this is a completely dry suit. I would recommend the 2xl/short with the size 10 shoe.
I had two questions. First I'm 6'0 and 1195lbs and a size 10 shoe. What size suit would work for me? 2nd, I use the apollo bio fins with spring straps now with my wet suit. Will I have to use a bigger fin size for this boot?
LeisurePro S I would recommend the Large Tall. The suit comes with a neoprene sock rather than a normal boot, so I think you should be okay with your current fin/boot combo.
Is this suit easy to zip and unzip yourslef or does it require a buddy to do so?
LeisurePro S You can rig it so you can zip it yourself, but it is much easier with a partner.
Im 5'8" height and 188 weigh, boot size 8, chest 43, which one size i need ML/Short or L/Short
LeisurePro S I would recommend the Large/Short.
Im 6'3" tall and 205 weigh. I wear normal shoes in size 13. This suit is OK for me?
LeisurePro S A large tall would be okay, but you won't fit in the boots. Please call our sales staff at 800.637.6880 for a custom order.
Hi , two questions for you ... first, are the shoes independant from the suit ? second, I've a dificulty to interprate the clothes US sizes .... do you have any informations to translate your size in european centimters
LeisurePro S Suit has socks attached to it and the boots are separate. As for the sizing we only have the size chart that you see next to the suit on the website.
I'm really interrested in buying a -Bare nex-gen dry suit- 2XL but i'm wondering if my feets will fit in the dry suit socks since i usually wear size 13 in any shoesware.if possible write me back a clear anwser so i can buy one of yours.
LeisurePro S This suit comes with a thick neoprene sock for the foot which you can wear a boot over. The only problem is that this sock on a 2X suit is size 11 and would probably quite small on you.
The left drysuit in the picture is for man and thi right is for woman, how can i specify it?
LeisurePro S Both are male suits just 2 styles that Bare sends. You cannot specify style.
i want to buy a dry suit, the bare nex-gen , and its said size shoes 11 and i wear 13 normally , am i gonna fit in it ?? thx :)
LeisurePro S No, Please call our sales staff 800.637.6880 for a custom order
