    Several months ago I purchased the 5/3mm version of this suit for a trip to Maui. I was so impressed with it that when I booked a trip to Cozumel earlier this month I decided to toss my 3mm Henderson and order the 3/2mm Bare. Good decision!... It fits better and is more comfortable than ANY suit I have ever owned... And, after 38 years of diving, I have been through many!
    At 5' 9" and 190 lbs I find the XLS to be just right!... Bare makes finding the right size easy!

    Not very warm. Despite the glideskin wrist seals and adjustable collar this suit circulates a lot of water. Also, the surface of the suit started to pill after one use where the BCD shoulder strap rubbed. The other suit I have (different brand) is probably 50% warmer.

    Comments about Bare Sports Bare 3/2 Velocity Progressive Stretch Full, Men's:

    I have owned 3mm wet suits for over 30yrs and never, never had one suck water like this guy after only 30-dives. Granted it is 4-yrs old and I live in a dry climate. However, I kept it in a sealed plastic bag and always run A/C so it never got above 80*F. Looks brand new, but after one dive on Cozumel this suit sucks over 2-lbs of water making me add BC air. I now wish I had not given away a perfectly good Body Glove 3mil suit for this color coordinated stretch suit. Maybe in wet climate it would have lasted.

      Comments about Bare Sports Bare 3/2 Velocity Progressive Stretch Full, Men's:

      I use this suit when diving in tropical waters as the material is not so heavy to cause overheating while waiting my turn to enter the water from the boat, yet it is perfect in the water. Thick enough for protection against underwater "cooties" and thin enough to allow freedom of movement without binding.

          Great suit & the price is good. It goes on easy thanks to the Progressive Stretch. It dries quicker than my other suits as well. Never tried Bare until this & I am very happy with it.

            My first wetsuit. Got it for a weeklong dive trip to Cozumel. Used it in 85 degree ocean water and 75 degree Cenotes. I was comfortable at all times. I agree with an earlier review that the zipper should be longer, but it is no big deal.

            Im 6'5, 215lbs, 43chest, 38waist, 42hips. And size
            XLT is a perfect fit.

            Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

            Questions about this item:

            Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
            RICHARD W  Great wetsuit for warm water diving! I love the fit and its easy to put on because of the 2mm thickness in arms and legs.
            Shopper  What difference is there between the Pinnacle Venture 3mm Jumpsuit for men, and the Bare 3/2 Velocity Progressive Stretch Full?
            GREGORY J  I can't answer 100% about the Pinnacle wetsuit, but what I can say about the Bare 3/2 is that I love it. The 3/2, I believe, is 3mm in the core, and 2mm in the arms/legs. This makes for a much more agile wetsuit. I have only dove with full protection. Hope that helps.
            Steve L  I am 5'10", weight 160-165, have a 34" waist and a 40" chest. Size recommendation?
            EUGENE D  Hi, Steve. I have two Bare wetsuits and have found them very true to the size charts. For your height and weight, I would recommend ML. You will be happy with the product !!
