About Henderson Thermoprene 8/7mm Semi-Dry

Henderson's 8/7mm Front Zip / Hood attached Semi Dry Jumpsuit. This single piece hood attached suit is designed for divers who want the warmth of a dry suit without the hassles. Constructed from 100% Thermoprene 8mm nylon II neoprene with 7mm Thermoprene flex panels, this suit is the warmest in the Thermoprene line-up. The entire suit is double glued and double blind stitched for dependable performance in the most unforgiving environments.

Divers enter the suit from an easily accessible front zipper opening which eliminates the need for assistance when donning the suit. An integrated water barrier helps eliminate water entry thru the zipper while keeping the suit in position prior to donning the hood. Double layer zippered ankle cuffs provide a skin to skin seal when worn with Henderson's Insta Dry boots and double layer zippered wrist cuffs are nearly completely dry when worn with Henderson's Insta Dry 5 finger gloves or sealed Dry Suit Gloves. A skin face seal surrounds the hood and Henderson's flow vent helps channel trapped exhaust from the hood. Durable and flexible Freedom Flex knee pads complete the package of this Cold water Semi Dry wetsuit.

The suit rubber utilizes limestone based polychloroprene reducing the dependency on oil and oil derived chemicals for a more environmentally friendly manufacturing process. Suit is available in multiple sizes, and is covered by head to toe 12 month limited warranty with a 120 month limited warranty on the zipper.

I purchased this suit to replace a 2 piece suit that I've used for the past serveral years for diving in the upper midwest and Canadian lakes. I like the fact I can ditch several pounds of weight and was very warm in mid 50F degree water with only a Neosport skin as an undersuit. I found the suit a great fit and high quality construction. Easy to put on or take off. Where I was disappointed was with the hood fit. The one way vent was not functioning and I found it to be sealed from the factory. I had alot of trouble to get trapped air to release and began the dive very positive. I thought that this could have been a better design and incorporated the one way valve on the Aqua lock hood. I was wearing a Henderson Ice Cap under the hood and had no problems with the cold water without it I would have. I also found the hood opening wider than I would like and the seal could have been wider to allow the owner to customize by triming to fit. I may have to revert to my older suit when using my Cressi full face mask due to the poor face seal. Other than the hood vent and face seal, this is a great suit and no regrets.

Good product, but need some improvements

After 1 hour you start feeling cold, you must improve the zipper locks

    I always wanted an 8 mil wetsuit, and now I have what appears to be a fine one. Now of course the water here has warmed, so I haven't had to wear it yet. Ironic?

      I did 5 dives with this in 63 degree F water. I found it to be very comfortable and easy to put on alone and take off alone. I didn't test colder water but it was solid at 63. The material is flexible unlike other suits I've worn that are uncomfortable and hard to put on. The hood is nice and I had no leaks. I even cliff jumped a few times in it and I took no water. Some other people had a gallon of water jet into the suit, but this one did not.

        Comments about Henderson Thermoprene 8/7mm Semi-Dry:

        If you are looking for great warmth and durability at a good price, look no further.

        I am a dive instructor and in the water 3-5 times a week. I spend many hours exposed to lower water temperatures...this suit gives me the warmth of a dry suit without all the additional problems or expense.

        The leg and wrist seals are rugged yet comfortable with plenty of length so you can roll them under making a sizable cuff and the zippers are very stout, as are the kneepads the attached dicky is comfortable and you forget it is there. The hood seals your face nicely without too much pressure and the vent does allow air to escape through the hood without allowing water in.

        Even at depth this suit keeps you warm and stays comfortable. It has great range of motion and feels more like wearing a 3mm then an 8mm.
        I've used it on twenty dives to date at various depths and temps ranging for 77 to 64F and love it.

        The transaction with Leisure Pro was smooth and rapid. My suit arrived when expected and in good condition.
