I purchased this suit to wear on a November trip to the Bahamas. It ended up being exactly perfect for my needs. I have never liked wearing a wetsuit of any kind but this one was a joy to wear. It did not restrict my movements at all, was easy to don and doff and I never once felt cold or hot during the trip- it was always just right. When I first tried it on, it felt a little bit long in the torso but in actual usage, It seemed to conform well to my body and I doubt if I could have gotten a better fit with a different size.

I don't want to totally bomb this product because it didn't work for me. My biggest complaint is that the size was too small. The wetsuit was very tight, but it was the correct length. I'm 5"08, 157lbs. The medium was too small and the large was too big. If the size fit for you then this would be a good starter product. The only down side is that it was very hard to put on.

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

This is the second Bare wet suit I've purchased. I loved my 5mm so I decided to get this one.
I just received this suit today and tried it on. All the comments about it being hard to get into and out of are TRUE. However once it is on, fits like a glove. It seems the zipper is shorter than my other wet suit which makes it more difficult. Looking forward to diving with this in Bonaire!

    This is a nice suite and somewhat easy to get on and off. Fits true to size. Only complaint is the stitching around the sleeve came out after one dive. The suite is only two weeks old.

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

      Purchased this 3/2 suit for an April snorkeling trip to Hawai'i. Just right for spring water temps - not too hot. I have a fairly muscular build, yet the suit was fairly easy to put on and fit snugly without any gaps. Seals well around the neck with chafing - easily adjusted with the velcro tab. After four snorkeling sessions, often through narrow reef openings, the suit looks good as new. Exceptionally pleased with this suit and anticipate long life and continued satisfaction. Terrific sale price from LP, too! Highly recommended!

        Questions about this item:

        Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
        Michael S  Good quality at a good price
        Stuart V  How are the seams on this suit sewn? Flat stitched? Glued? Taped?
        Frank L  Flatseam stitched. No tape.
        Shopper  Can the owners of this wetsuit confirm that it really is a Velocity 3/2? I didn't think Bare made a velocity 3/2 (only a sport 3/2 or Velocity 3 and Bares own website doesn't list this model). Thanks!
        MICHAEL P  The tag says it is a Bare Velocity. On the sleeve there is lettering that says 3/2 mm Velocity.
