Is this really a full through the neck entry into this suit or does it have a velcro shoulder?
One shoulder has a Velcro entry.
There are no zippers or velcro. However I put mine on over a skin and its not a problem and really helps with warmth. Hope this helps. :) Michelle
This has a velcro shoulder fastener. It's pretty bulky. It's not just velcro, it's also has a rubber tab. I found it too uncomfortable to wear under my wetsuit. As a stand alone or to wear over a wetsuit, it might work for you.
Yes, there is a Velcro closure on the shoulder. This is a great vest. I have had it since January, and used it on about 200 dives, and it is holding up great, and very warm.
The shoulder is velcro and allows plenty of room to get in and out. I took this to the Philippines this summer. It was so easy to get on and off, I didn't don it until just before the dive. I also wear it under my drysuit for extra insulation. Because of its packability and flexibility, it's been a nice addition for travel, tropical, and temperate diving.
I would like to add that I bought an XL because I am 5'9" and weigh 160, but I could have easily fit into a Large
It has a velcro shoulder. Really, it's pretty much a sleeveless shorty. I like mine. I bought it to wear under my 7mm one-piece for extra warmth, but now I realize that I can also wear it when I dive in the Keys.
It's really a full neck entry. Very flexible and surprisingly easy to get into. I've been very happy with it.
