I'm trying to decide what to get. Why did you pick this one?
I picked this one because most 7mm suites are difficult to get on and off. This one is very easy. I have the same suit in 3mm as well. I tend to go and down about five or 6 pounds and this way one suit will fit me at either end of my weight range.
Needed a 7mm wetsuit for diving in PA. Fit was exceptional and gives alittle when the weight sometimes fluxuates. Good warm suit liked everything about it.
A DM in Turks & Caicos had this wetsuit and raved about it so I purchased it in 2009. Really wears more like a 5mm than a 7mm, but it is super easy to get on and off. Very stretchy for all around comfort. Seams frayed quickly, but no leaks. Velcro at ankles comes apart too easily, but I mostly dive warm water so it hasn't been a problem. The suit looks great on, it's very comfortable and isn't too bulky for traveling. Overall, would say I am very satisfied with it!
I chose it because I was going to Cocos and knew the water would be colder than I was used to. I wore it on 2 dives and switched to wearing Polartec skins (no longer made) under my 3ml Hyperstretch. The 7 ml works okay on dives where the depth doesn't change much, but in Cocos, the dives were usually around 90-95 ft, and we often changed depths. With all the extra weight it took to get down, it was a struggle when I went shallower (felt like I was dragging elephants), which meant I had to put more air in my BC. I wish now that I had gotten a 5ml.

I love Henderson's hyperstretch material. It is easy to get on, even when wet on a rolling boat. The material conforms to my shape and looks good. My first wetsuit was a 5mm Henderson hyperstretch and my husband got something else. After watching me suit up, he got a hyperstretch 3 mm and then the H2 when we got 7mm. I got the 7mm to keep me warmer in some of the quarry lakes we dive in the summer.------Suellen
This is a great wetsuit. I have a Henderson 3mm, 5mm and this 7mm. I love this because it's super easy to get off and on and it keeps me warm. I'm an instructor and spend hours and hours not doing much at the bottom of a cold pool or cold ocean. This suit feels soft and flexible, it's comfortable and it allows me to move freely. I'd say it's worth every penny and would absolutely buy it again.
I had to return it because the wrists were too small and the zipper in the back did not go far enough to allow easy access. I even tried a larger size. I had the older style of this suit and loved it. It fit well and was easy to put on and off because of the stretch, although it didn't work as well in really cold water as it let in too much water.
