is this suit 1.5mm or .5mm some other sights say it's only .5mm?
I PURCHASED MEN'S SUIT IN MAY AND WORE IT IN PROVO FOR 3 DAYS OF DIVING. WATER TEMP WAS WARM 82+ BUT AFTER 2ND DIVE PEOPLE ON BOAT WERE CHILLED WHILE I WAS VERY COMFORTABLE. IT IS DEFINITELY 1.5 MM SO I THINK THAT IT MAKES A GOOD ALL-AROUND LIGHTWEIGHT SUMMER SUIT FOR DAY OR NIGHT DIVING EVEN WHEN THE TEMPERATURE IS ONLY IN THE 77-8 DEGREE RANGE. I THINK THAT YOU WILL BE PLEASED WITH THIS ITEM. .
Actually, the suit I purchased back in 2007 was a 1 mm jumpsuit. I did have a Scubapro .5 mm jumpsuit. I definitely do stay warmer in the 1 mm suit.
I think is 1.5mm, but can't tell. It's a very comfortable suit for diving in Cozumel
This suit is 1.5mm. A .5mm suit would be thinner than a skin with little or no thermal protection.
It was a 1.5 suit that I purchased. I just looked at the suit and it doesn't say on the suit anywhere. I hope that helps, but I wish the manufacturers would clearly mark the suits with the weights.
All I know is that it is a "Microprene" suit. It is thicker than a skin but much thinner than a regular wetsuit. I can say that I love it and that it is perfect for diving in the Caribbean waters.
