    I've used this drysuit on more than 10 dives, it fits me well and feels extremely comfortable under water. Unfortunately, the brand name ring around the inflator valve came unglued. It did not cause any leaks, but made me think about the quality of adhesives used in the rest of the suit. Bare did repair it at no cost, using the same adhesive as before, it appears, because the ring is coming off again. Overall it's a very nice, comfortable drysuit and I really like it, but I just don't understand why Bare tries to save a few pennies by using inferior adhesives. Other than that I have no complaints about this product.

    Overall pleased with the suit itself but beware of problems with fit, especially the wrist seals, unless you're a store mannequin. Felt OK at first so I trimmed the neck and tried it out in the pool. After 30 min my hands went numb and blue. They are bottleneck style; they can't be adjusted. If I knew then what I know now, I would have researched size more carefully and might have chosen a brand with more fit options. It costs $75 [...] to have the seals replaced by Bare; I decided to send them locally and go with Sitech rings so I can replace seals myself; that's going to cost $150 and I haven't even done an open water dive yet.

        I am very happy with the product, however as one other reviewer noted there is an issue with the adhesive used. But it gets worse, my knee pads came "unglued" at the top. I was told by Bare that this was not covered by the warranty, yet the Bare warranty states "limited to seams and workmanship." Well, isn't the adhesion of the knee pads both related to seams and workmanship? Anyway, Bare repaired the knees as a courtesy as I was having them install two Bare pockets when I sent it in.

        Comments about Bare Sports Bare NEX-GEN Pro Men's Dry Suit, Black:

        First off the size chart is right on, I measured near the high end of the size I picked (2XLS) and figured I would be sending back to get a larger suit but it fits perfect with a cold weather undergarment. I am not new to dry suit diving but have been a renter to date, the only suit I have never been able to rent is a Bare so I was very skeptical, after much research and reading every review I could find I decided to take a chance because I just wanted to own my own suit and I could not afford the more expensive ones, I now have 10 dives on the suit, 8 of which were in cold water (down to 41 degrees F) and it performed flawlessly! I decided to take it with me on a trip to FL and tried it in 75 degree water with just a rash guard and I was amazed to how comfortable it made the dive, only downside compared to a wetsuit is a little extra added drag other than that it was great and topside on an hour boat ride to the second dive site I was dry and warm while everyone else on the boat with 3mm and 5mm wetsuits (wet being the key word) were shivering. This is a no frills suit but does everything stated, you will be dry and the valves work very well, for me the larger suits come with the XL seals on the wrist so they fit fine and the neck is trim able. You cannot go wrong with this for the money, I would buy this suit again and will certainly look at other Bare suits in the future.

          Comments about Bare Sports Bare NEX-GEN Pro Men's Dry Suit, Black:

          Good suit, good investment, specially knowing Bare stands behind their products for a lifetime, can't ask for more.

          To trim the neck seal, I stretched it inside-out over some round cardboard/bottle, then used a sharp knife to cut along the ring. Trim it one by one and try every time for at least 10-15min until you feel like it's still a little tight, then stop trimming and just stretch it over a tank overnight, it will fit perfectly the next morning.

          The wrist seals are not supposed to be trimmed so if they feel tight, just find some water bottle that's a little bigger than your wrist and stretch them overnight as well.

          Also do a test on your neck: relax your shoulders and turn your head all the way to one side, then touch the other side of the neck. If you have a tendon/muscle stretching/popping up, creating a small canal running along the neck and specially a small dip at the base of the neck, you will most likely get leak when you turn and look back while diving. If so, just get the Bioseal neck seal, and problem solved. It happened to me and after I bought the bioseal, it has been truly dry since.

          I didn't give 5 stars rating because the suit didn't come with a suspender, not even the hooks inside to attach them. I bought the suspender, then had to glue some hooks on the inside to attach the suspender.

            I never thought I would still be using this suit. I have over 250 dives in my suit. Very few people put their suits through what I do. I do recovery work and wreck recovery. Have dove in the ice and snow,in gas and oil. Little or no vis water to rig sunken boats for recovery. Have expected to have changed seals by now but are still doing well. The only thing,the ring around the inflate valve is loose,but no leaks. Can't believe it still works!

            An excellent dry suit, easy to put on and use. I would like to see suspenders included with them. The zipper is a plastic material but it zips easy and holds tight. Wrist and neck seals hold water out and make it a true dry suit. Highly recommended.

            Questions about this item:

            Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
            MICHAEL B  7 years old now with 100's of dives. Replaced neck seal as expected intervals. No leaks yet.
            ??? ?  hi ~~ I am 5"7 and 155lbs , shoes size 9. What size is good for me ?
            LANCE B  I am 5'8, 230 lbs with 9W feet. I have a XL-short. I would guess you would be a M-short.
            Dave F  What is a "soft boot?" Is it a neoprene sock, or is it actually a boot with a hard sole? Can the soft boots be used to walk across rocks on a jetty, or walk on the beach for a shore dive? If you step on something sharp, can you get punctured in the foot where your fins don't cover your heels?
            JOHN B  Hi David, No, you won't be able to walk over rocks with it, and good sharp objects could feasibly puncture it. Soles are soft. over-boot or rock boot is needed, but I found they can be challenging to get into your fins due to the added bulk of 2 layers on your feet. Test fit that, and all else will work. the boots are comfortable, and let you invert your suit easy to dry. Best way to describe the boot is if you were to sew a water tight boot out of a 7 mL Neoprene wet suit. Another good reason to have the over boots in my opinion, is to not allow any air to balloon up in the feet aiding in an inversion. The over-boot keeps the flexible soft boot free from collecting too much air. Well worth the extra investment. Not optional in my opinion. All in all, more comfortable and warmer than std boots. Hope this helped you, -John (Happy diving)
