I use this suit daily for commercial work in NY and NJ waters. Even with the hot water machines,under water welding, and the "fine" harbor waters, it wears well. Nothing lasts long in our business, should do great for a normal user.

Bought this suit for a very recent Caribbean dive trip. On dive number 20 (out of 24), the zipper completely broke. Dove the last 4 dives with the zipper open, but since the water temp was 81 degrees, was bearable. The zipper is made of plastic, and I am not too impressed with this considering the other features of the suit.

Also, the stitching at the rear of the suit began to fray after only a few dives. I will be in touch with Leisure Pro to request repair/replacement instructions.

    Comments about Bare 5/4 Velocity Progressive Stretch Full, Men's:

    This wetsuit is one of the better fitting and durable suits in my 20+ years of diving. The Bare sizing chart was true to fit; however, I would put more reliance in body dimensions over body weight. The suit has kept me warm and comfortable during multiple two hour dives in the Caribbean, cave diving, and hour long river dives at 65-75F. The suit has been durable and like most others will get some wear from use and abuse.

      I have been diving for 21 years and this has to be the most comfortable wetsuit that I have ever used.

      I dove with this wetsuit,in 55 degree cold water and it was warm.

      Great wetsuit. I am impressed!

      I am 6'3" 225lbs. This XL-Tall suit fits me perfect. I got it after trying on the XXL Henderson 5mm sport Hyperstretch wetsuit, which was too wide in the arms and neck. I used in Key Largo in 73F water and felt fine. You do need a hood or a beanie also in this temperature.
      It is a little hard to slip on the legs but then it gets easier.

          Great suit that fits perfectly. The wide range of size choices helped me find a great fit, where other brands had areas too tight or loose. I've had Bare wetsuits before, so was comfortable that their cut was appropriate for my body. Proper fit really helps warmth. Really comfortable suit.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Product was shipped quickly, and arrived exactly as promised...brand new with all tags.
