Would this work for Moneterey California, avg temp around 52 Fareinheit? Also, I'm 6'3" 200lbs, ,would XL be right?
I used this past summer in Buffalo NY (Niagara River) We start when water temp is 60 F. Suit worked great.Great quality. Felt a little tight across the chest, when dry fitted,never botherd me when diving.I'm 5'10" using a large.
It might be a little snug I'm 58 200 and it's a little tight.as far as it being warm enough it depends on how long youll be in the water.5 mm would be good from 1 to 2 hours pending on how much cold you can tolerate.my main suit that I dive with is a 7mm
I would go for the 7mm XXL
I have never dove in water that cold with a 5mm suit but i don't think that would be thick enough. The coldest i have ever dove in with this suit e
was maybe 70 degrees. As far as the size i am 5' 9" and 210 and mine fits ok, a little tight through the shoulders and arms.
Great suit but I doubt it would be the proper suit for 52 degree water. Can you say dry suit! Might try the XXL because of your height.
I have used this suit in Key West, about 69 degree water. Perfect for this temperature. You might consider a 7mm suit for water in the 50's!
No way!! You will need at least a 7mm with hood and gloves. Strongly suggest a drysuit if diving there regularly.
Hi, at 53 deg I would use a 7mm or a dry suit. Mine is XXL and i'm 6' 205 lbs and it fits me good. Hope this helps
BTW, I am 6" and 205. The x-large was perfect for me.
No, I would get something warmer, this works for around 60-70 degree water.
But then I am from the south and I get cold easily.
I was in Monterey in Aug. of last year. I wouldn't reccomend a 5ml. suit. The 7ml. is going to be much more comfortable.The water temp. up here in northern Ca. can be cold compared to southern Ca. I bought my 5ml suit for the tropical areas that I travel to. The temps. there are in the 70's or higher as compare to the water temps. here in northern Ca,in the 50's.
I use it for the winter in out of tampa bay, 60 ish now, I wear the 5mm, 3/5 mm hoody pullover, and a 5mm shorty, keeps me toasty, I get cold easy, im not sure on the fit for you, i got a large (recommended by chart for me) it fits perfect
Besides me two divers whom I know are using Cressi Castoro 5mm Men's jumpsuit.
It's actually good for Monterey bay diving (we tried), but for longer dives I usually put on a 7mm shorty on top of it and then it's good for longer dives (1hr) and deeper depths (80-100ft).
It works very well for Monterey bay shore dives (20-40mins).
Also it's one of the best wetsuits, in terms of the ease of putting it on.
If you get cold very easily, then a 7mm version of the same might be better.
52 f is too chilly for a 5 mm. Even a farmer john 7mm limits at about 58-60. You'll be needing a semi dry 7-8 mm or a full dry suit. This Cressi 5 mm works great and is comfortable, but is not enough insulation for that temp.
As for the sizing, I am 5'11'' 205 and the XL is a great fit. I cannot see your extra few inches being a problem at all for the XL fit.
U might want to go a size bigger due to your highth. As far as the water temp ya it will be fine.
I'm 6', 190. The XL fit is fine. At 6'3'", 200, the diver is probably on the line, and unless he plans to lose or maintain his weight, he may wish to consider a larger size. At shallow depths, a 5mm may be all right with hood and gloves, but he may want a 3-5mm hooded vest . Just a thought. DE
I love my suit i am 6' 200# and mine is a little tight around he chest. Judging from your description you may be more slender and it would fit perfect. Warmth wise i have been in 50 degree with it and i was literally steamimg when i took it off. Best of luck hope it helps
Ya that would probably work just fine, Im 6' 1'' 190 and a XL fits just fine for me with a little extra room. So i would say the XL would work for you too. I bought this wetsuit because it was on sale for really cheap at the time and have loved it ever since. I have used it to dive in anything from warm waters of Hawaii to chilly water in a quary in Illinois so i would say 52 degrees would work.
No idea about the size, but at 52F...to dive...I would consider a dry suit. Even a 7mm + 7mm shorty/farmer john would be way too cold for me. Personally, I wear a 5mm for temps ~74-80F. Keep in mind everyone is a bit different, and I tend to be cold, but I'm pretty sure you'd want way more thermal protection at that temperature.
