Comments about Henderson 7mm Men's Aqua Loc® Package:
Obviously the only reason to wear a 7mm is to stay warm. It's doing its job. I've worn it for full dives in 52 degree (F) water without discomfort, and short dives in 48 degree water. (I could have done a full dive even in the 48 degree water, but my dive buddy was cold.) The Aqua-lock system does a great job minimizing water transfer.
The suit is easy to don when dry and not terribly difficult to don even when wet. The zippers are very good: heavy duty, with a smooth motion. I have an easier time zipping up this 7mm than any of my thinner suits (which are different brands).
I haven't had this suit long enough to really assess its durability, but it does seem to be well made. One caveat: the "10 year warranty" does NOT apply to the suit -- it covers only the zipper. The suit itself has a normal warranty. (I think it's 2 years, but I'm sorry to say I'm not certain about that, and the paperwork is filed away. I am certain only that the suit's warranty was more or less the same as that of competing suits.)
Bottom line: I recommend this suit for anyone diving in a wetsuit in cold water.
