          Comments about Waterproof W4 Men's 5mm Wetsuit:

          The first time I put it on, it was not easy at all and I almost decided to return it. Then, with the help of a full body skin on first, it was a bit easier, and the third time it was just nearly perfect.

          My problem was that I went from an older Henderson hyper stretch 3 mm to this 5 mm wetsuit. After the 3rd time putting it on at home, it felt right.

          Great wetsuit really. It is not hyper stretch but still quite easy to put on and off. I had 8 dives on it in Hawaii and it was really nice. I recommend it very highly.

          Comments about Waterproof W4 Men's 5mm Wetsuit:

          I am an Instructor so I dive every single day so my comments are from someone that gives heavy use to the scuba equip.
          The wetsuit has good construction but it´s a bit stiff for a 5mm compared to my previous 5mm (Pinnacle Tempo) which was very elastic and comfortable from day 1. I have only used the W4 for about 2 weeks (about 20 dives). It reminds me a lot of and old 9mm I used to have in terms of stiffness. Also it is a bit more buoyant than the Pinnacle. With AL tanks I need 6 lbs compared to zero with the Pinnacle.

          The ankle and wrist seals are great and the suit in general conserves warmth pretty well.
          The heavy duty knee pads are great for teaching because I have to kneel a lot.
          Waterproofs sizes are a bit bigger than for other brands. I have always used M but had to go with an S. Just follow the size chart, it is pretty accurate.

          One thing I didn´t like is the thigh pocket. I bought one but the secure velcro system is not very reliable. The strips of velcro are pretty narrow so with just an SMB with a spool it came off a couple of times during the dives.

            I am pretty much reviewing 3.5 mm. My wife got her 7mm and loves it. She also has a Waterproof 5mm and 3.5 mm and loves all of them. I have a 3.5mm and love it. The 5mm bought recently did not fit well but Leisure pro reimbursed me easily and with no issues. Best thing of purchase was Leisure Pro. Amazing customer service.

            Questions about this item:

            Shopper  How do you recommend using the seals most effectively on the arms and legs? Do you put them over the glove and then zipper the neoprene over that? My old suits don't have these.
            Frank L  The inner seal is designed to stay against your skin. Then the glove (or boot) goes over that, and the neoprene outer cover is zipped over the glove. That makes the best seal.
