Great skin suit

By Kenypoo

[...] Just used on 40+ dives in two weeks, 83 deg. water. Great coral and sun protection. Resisted abrasion well. About as easy to put on as all the others. Not thermal protection, good for warm water only I think but good for under wetsuit to ease donning.Would not dive reef areas without one. Have a Henderson and like this one much better as the lycra is harder and smoother. Rinses easily and dries very fast. I plan on getting another one. Also like the color (black/yellow) but wou...

Love my Skin!


I use this Lycra suit for many different purposes. I take many people snorkeling and diving on my boat. Now that I’m over 50, my skin is really aging, and this suit is excellent sun protection but not hot. Going out in the boat to the Ocean water with wind and waves, I’m always wet and receive comfort from the Lycra. “Good bye Chicken skin!” This suit works well with Scuba diving as well, in warm water I don’t have to worry about jelly fish stings as much. One time down at Cozumel our g...

Divers and snorkeler's looking for 50+ UV protection and a defense against sea lice, jellies and other biological irritants will love this super stretchy, heavy duty and comfortable 6 oz. (170 g) Lycra/Spandex sport skin. Easy to don, anatomical cut pattern, naturally form fitting to reduce drag in the water while providing full body protection. The long front quality #10-YKK zipper makes donning and doffing lightning fast.

When worn alone the foot stirrups prevent the suit from riding up at the legs. The foot stirrups and thumb loops also allow you to use the Sports Skin as a base layer for increased warmth under your wet suit without riding up when donning the wet suit over the skin. The NeoSport Skin Suit also makes it easier to slip into neoprene wet suits. Sports skin is constructed with over lock stitched seams and rolled edges for strength and comfort. The skin suit has an internal key pocket for security and is machine washable in a unisex design. Skin suit is available in multiple sizes and colors.

Too small

First, there is only 1 zipper and it doesn't go all the way down so if you need to go to bath for #1, you still have to take most of the suit off. They should've added another zipper or even velco for the crotch area - it's not like the suit is waterproof anyway. 2nd, the suit is short. I'm not a tall guy. I'm 5feet 10 and a half inches. I ordered an extra large because of the reviews. Order two sizes bigger. I feel like my shoulders are minimized. Quality seems decent but wouldn't recommend ...

love the zipper and the fit of the Xlarge


I ordered a size Large according to the size chart. (5'9" tall, 155lbs). Too small. They sent a size Xlarge and it is perfect


First Under Water camera

By William R.

Customer service was excellent. Delivery was as he said. I owned an Intova years ago. Flooded out on first dive in Bonaire. Could have been my fault, but got a lot pictures and video’s prior to that trip. We will see how this works out.

Skin Suit Protects

By robert g.

from Lexington, KY, US

I purchased my first skin suit and I liked it so much I purchased two more. They are great for summer diving to layer with a shorty or alone in warm water. One of my best equipment purchases.



By Heather H.


Lightweight, easy to move around in, perfect for sliding a thick wet suit on and off. Highly recommend ??


Great diving skin


from Wilbraham , MA, US

This skin was excellent for our shark dive in the Bahamas Wears well look great and price is tremendous


Great value.

By Timothy O.

from Pace, FL, US

Well made. Size chart is accurate, fits well. Makes donning and doffing my wet suits a breeze, wet or dry makes no difference. I will buy another for my son.


Great purchase

By Linda P.

Really well made suits-exactly what we wanted-well worth the price-recommendation of ordering one size larger worked for us.


Had ours for a few years now

By Rose J.

from Big Lake, MN, US

We've owned these for at least three years. I use mine for snorkeling (4+ vacations). My husband uses his for snorkeling AND windsurfing in the summer months. Both of us are on our original purchase with no signs of wear. We both "sized up" as lots of the reviews suggest. These provide great protection while snorkeling. On our most recent trip, some were complaining of sea lice and jellies...we experienced neither, thanks to our suits. Highly recommended. Excellent vlaue.


Great investment for very little money.

By Sgtm8411

from Johnstown, NY, US

Makes it a hell of a lot easier getting into and out of a wetsuit. I don’t think it affected my body temperature one way or the other but I bought it specifically to make donning and doffing the wetsuit easier.


Great fit and durable


Great fit, but for a man's size order a size bigger or tall. This is my 5th one and I use it all the time for kite surfing in warm waters to be protected from jellyfish.


Great piece of gear

By Ron C.

from Ottawa, ON, CA

This skin makes putting on my wetsuit so much easier I can not imagine why I did not get a skin before.


Must have item

By Christopher L.

Great price ! Fits great. Comfortable and well made.


I love it.

By Mathieu C.

I bought it to slip in my wetsuit better but it ends up that I really appreciate the fact that it does cut the wind and keeps me warmer even if it’s just a rash guard. I’m very happy with that purchase.


Love these skins!

By Jim C.

from Melbourne, FL, US

Perfect fit and comfort.

NANCY H  I already have 2 of these one yellow and one purple, and I am ordering these for relatives.

Jim M  I am a mens med-small in wet suits but had to buy an X-large one of these.
SUSAN F  I am alergic to jelly fish.
BEVERLY B  We prefer yellow on our wetsuits or skins so they are better seen when surfacing. This skin is one of few that have yellow on the upper body.
JOANNE L  I had a Henerson skin but I got too fat to wear it. It's very comfortable, makes it easier to put your wetsuit on and adds just a tiny bit of more warmth.
CHRISTY C  price and size... boy, did i get fat
Bob L  It was cheap and and I wanted to try out wearing a skin under my suit. It fit well except the wrists were very hard to get on and off and I have pretty skinny arms.
LINNEA F  I needed something really minimal but with total coverage for tropical. Have been quite happy with it.
GABRIELA L  Unexpensive,but main reason was so I won't have to struggle anymore when trying to put my semi dry on. What a work out that was. For me as well as for my friends,lol... With the "skin" I have my suit on in less than a minute. Telling nothing but the truth ;)
MARY C  great price good quality
DONN E  Always need to have one handy.
ROMUARDO P  Great fit and easy to suit up in the wet suit
JOHN R  Price and material.
HENRY P  Low price, UV protection.
DONALD K  My old skins got too tight and this henderson slides on easy, perfect fit, and makes donning the wetsuit soooo much easier. it is also a great jelly-fish protector for those warm waters with jellies!
KERRI P  It's much easier to put on a wetsuit when you use a dive skin!
CAROL A  Good quality brand at a good price and we had had a good experience with previous purchases of similar equipment.
CAROL A  Good quality brand at a good price.
JOSEPH P  Quality product, bought this to have an extra.
KEVIN J  I use this for the pool and in a year plus of use the stirrups are loose and always slides off my feet and it is loose around the ankle but other than that I enjoy it. It's more insulation than a bathing suit anyway and protects you from the sun, chart is pretty accurate for sizing. krj
Felix F  Pretty snug fit but allows much easier donning of a wet wetsuit. Plus when you are out of your suit, it keeps you from getting sunburned. You could wear this to dive in alone to offer some protection against stings I suppose.
CHRIS L  Good sun protection and rash guard.
ABDUL S  Bought 2 for my wife and she loves them. She doesn't like showing a lot of skin in public, so she wears it under her swim suit. A few of her friends saw them and are placing orders of their own. Of course I bought her the small and it fits well. I like it because it make it a lot easier to get in and out of your wetsuit. Also great for protection from the sun when doing open water triatholons.

DENNIS R  Its nice to wear under a pair of sweats when making long hike down a cliff to dive and helps me slide into my diving suit with ease.
RONALD F  My wife loves this - it helps her get her wetsuit on and off with ease!
JAMES B  Features and price.
JAMES B  Features and price.
DAVID H  I like the fit, and the fact that the seams don't dig in and irritate if I wear it under a wetsuit.
lon W  I am 5'10 and 170lbs, what size should i get. also, is this good for reef snorkeling?
William G  I bought the XL and I’m 5-7” 190lbs and it was pretty snug through the arms and chest for me.
LARRY C  I am 6'0, 180 lbs and wear a large. I have 4 of these lycra suits to use under my wetsuits. For the price, this is a great value. Leisure Pro is pretty good about their return policy, so you can try the large to see how it feels and exchange it if need be (obviously don't swim/use it). I have noticed some inconsistency of the location of the zipper up around the collar. On a couple of the suits when zipped up, the zipper ended up on an uncomfortable area on the sternum (by your collar bone). This could be more of an issue when worn under a wetsuit, easy solution is to just not zip the front up so much. This is really not that big of a deal, especially if you are just snorkeling with this, but just something that you want to check when you try it on. It would have been nice if the zipper was longer in length so that it could be a "relief" least for us males.
Alfred F  Is the any reason this suit couldn't be used as a base-layer for running? I'm a runner and not many one-piece suits are available for compression purposes. The compression pants I have like to start coming out of place and it throws off my pace to readjust.
DARKIN V  I am not a runner. I am free style ocean swimmer. i am using it in jellyfish polluted waters
ELIZABETH H  I have done a lot of running. Everything from racing a street mile in the summer to a 50K trail run in the snow and ice. This is really a dive skin. It serves as a nice layer to protect you from jellyfish and the sun. It zips in the front and the zipper would rub from the belly button up to the neck. It isn't really designed for wearing a shirt under it. It also doesn't provide much compression. I suppose if you were running for less than an hour and weren't bothered by the zipper, it would keep you warm. I would go for compression socks, regular running tights, compression sleeves for the arms, then a shirt-- for true warmth and compression for running.
Mario C  thank you for your question and answers. i do agree, i cannot think of a reason that this could not be used as a base layer for running, at the same time do not see much compression benefit since this should be a comfort fit suit.
MARY M L  The Laker suit is more of a rash guard. It does not have very much compression. You might do better looking into a one ml wetsuit rather than a Lycra skin. There are two piece wetsuits.
MARK S  No, there's no reason it couldn't be used a base-layer for running. It won't provide any significant degree of compression, though. It's just intended to provide a degree of protection against contact with things in the underwater environment and to make a wetsuit a little easier to slip on.
BENJAMIN G  I see no reason why it can't be used for running, but I don't think it's going to give you any of the compression benefit you're looking for. It is made from a very lightweight and very elastic material and I don't think it's going to do much to compress.
DEBORAH W  I don't think you get much compression from this suit. It's very stretchy. I use it to get the wetsuit on easier and it works as a skin guard, but it's not similar to compression sleeves i've worn.
