Is this wetsuit stretchy? There isn't any mention in the description and I'm wondering how easy it is to get on/off. Thanks!
DANIEL B I bought this for my wife, she said it is more stretchy than a 7mm suit, but its not like a spandex bathing suit. Very easy off and on both wet and dry. We bought two and they were both comfortable and durable with no complaints
JENNIFER L Hi Jamie,
This wetsuit is beyond easy to get on! I dove 20 times with it in Bonaire last November and it was effortless each time. I would highly recommend this wetsuit for any warm climate diving :) If you have any other questions, please let me know!
BARBEL S I'm not sure if it's stretchy but it was very easy to put on and take off. It's also very comfortable! I would buy it again.
DAVE S Jamie:
Yes. I bought this for my significant other and she reports that the stretch is enough to get in and out of easily. She is used to a 7 mm though (Maine diving) so her perspective on the 2 mm was in comparison to that.
LURA C I find the shorty very easy to get on and off. I am a slightly heavy-set woman, fairly buxom, and have had problems putting on wet suits in the past, but not with this one. And it just peels right off with no problem. So I guess I'd have to say, it has the right amount of stretchy, because it is snug but not tight or strangling when I have it on. It's just an incredibly comfortable wet suit.
LAURA B I loved this wetsuit and found it very easy to don and doff. Not too stretchy, but definitely not too tight and not sticky. Very comfy.
KATHERINE H I use this suit for diving in the warmer months in the eastern Carribean and it's great. Thin enough to get into quickly and I've not ever been cold, even on longer dives.
LORA M Yes, it is somewhat stretchy. I found it to be fairly flexible, conforming to your shape. This is NOT the hyperstretch that you may find with other brands, but it does stretch enough to be comfortable without being constricting, and is very durible. I think it was a great buy and would strongly suggest it to anyone looking for warm water shorty.
STEVE H The Bare has the most over all stretch on the market. I own 4 different wetsuits 7mm, 5mm, 3mm and my 2mm shorty my 3mm and 2mm are both Bare because of the easy of getting on and off in the tropics.
BILL H Easy to get on and off,a little difficult when wet.
JARED H The wetsuit is stretchy and is not hard to get on/off.
GINNIFER L Absolutely stretchy and I have been washing mine in the washer and it has not lost shape. Perfect sport suit! Ginny
