Just Right !!!!!

By macp

I purchased this vest for a trip to Bonaire and it was just the ticket. It kept me warm and comfortable,wile wearing a dive skin.


Works Great.

By jas

I wear it under the H2 shorty for added warmth, very comfortable combination in 50F water.

There's no better way to boost warmth than to add a vest to your exposure protection gear. Wear it with board shorts in tropical waters or layer it with any type of full-length suit for cold water diving. Thermoprene's natural stretch, about 75% more than standard wetsuit material, also means that this vest is easy to slip into or to layer with another garment without feeling any uncomfortable suit squeeze.

This 3mm Nylon 2 Neoprene Rubber Front Zippered Vest material is both glued and blind stitched, which not only clamps down on water seepage, it also provides tremendous durability. All edges are finished with a Lycra trim. Divers seeking a great value will appreciate Thermoprene's balance of performance and price. The latest technological innovation from Henderson, this new material delivers greater flexibility and improved features not found in standard neoprene wet suits, yet at a reasonable cost perfect for the cost-conscious buyer. Vest is available in multiple sizes and is black in color.

Wet suit vest

Well constructed and comfortable.


bruce h

By Bruce

Loved this vest, really well made , good zipper and pull strap. Only problem i had was the sizing. I normally wear a medium, havent gained any weigt, and ended up with an extra large to fit properly. Great vest. I use it when the water is a little colder than i like. It keeps my core warmer.


Just what I expected from Henderson!

By John P.

This 3 mil vest is exactly what I needed for our recent trip to Bonaire. I wore it over my Henderson full dive skin. The build quality seems very good though like other reviewers had stated, buy a size larger than you normally would get. I usually wear XL but I purchased the XXL and the fit was perfect. I highly recommend this product.And of course Leisure Pro was great to buy from as usual.


Nice !


from East Palatka, FL, US

I wear this under my 3mm in the Summer time and under my 7mm in the Winter time. It is very comfortable. The size chart is a little off though. I am 180 lbs and the Large was too tight. Leisure Pro was very helpful and exchanged it for an XL with no hassles. The XL fit just right.


Good vest

By Gordon L.

Well made and easy to use. Warm and zips easily. I wear it for extra warmth over my 3 mil.


Order big

By Dean A.

from Boynton Beach, FL, US

This is a very nice vest. I don't think it's 3mm however. Feels more like my 1mm wetsuit. But no matter, I didn't buy this for thermal protection. I only dive in tropical water and this works just fine with board shorts in 80 degree water. I could probably wear it in the winter just fine as water temp only gets down to the low 70's where I live. This thing is very stretchy but my advice would be to order up. I ordered 2 sizes bigger than the size chart says and it fits snug but not uncomfortable. My second bit of advice would be to ignore all size catagories but chest size. Worked for me.


Good deal


Website is easy to use. The price and fit was the best I found online.


My favorite "go to" wetsuit

By Glenn M.

from Austin, TX, US

Bought this to wear while teaching Scuba pool sessions. The extra layer protects my skin while demonstrating skills, and it helps to keep me warm. I also wear it under my other wetsuit to extend its temperature range for open water checkouts.. The quality is top notch and the fit is great.


Great vest


from SF, CA, US

Great vest. Order 1 size up (I normally wear mediums for everything, the medium in this vest was too small, large was perfect. 5'9 ~160lb) I took the vest out both diving and snorkeling. I tend to get cold on dives using rental suits in various states of disrepair, particularly places that offer nitrox and this added just an extra bit of warmth and is just what I needed. It didn't feel constricting under a wetsuit or cause water to run flow through the collar (I was afraid of the extra bulk in the collar area). The zipper is high quality and I had no problems getting it on or off. The arm holes are good and I was able to swim freestyle without feeling restricted. No issues with loose threads etc, I expect this vest to last a long long time. Ditto on snorkeling for a small bit of additional warmth being exactly what I needed. I've found that even in Hawaii (water temps ~77-79deg) I get cold after 40min of snorkeling. This last trip, I stayed out to the 1hr mark comfortably because of the addition of this vest. I should have bought this years ago.


Love ??

Just make sure to Order a large enough size. Runs a bit small. Go by chest size. I have a 46" chest and the 3XL is what fit me. Double X is what normally fits


Great Vest

By Judith S.

from Milwauee, WI, US

Bought this for my husband. He used it last month on vacation and said it was a great vest. It kept him warm.



By Rich

from Sparta, TN, US

Used the vest in St Maarten. Water temp was 84, and vest is perfect for tropical waters. I did have to reorder, due to a size issue. But Leisure pro is always great with size issues.


comfortable, easy access, undersized

By theruss

I had to send the first L back and bump up. I knew my actual sizes, but this vest did not match the sizing guide. Order large.


Such a good product my last one was stolen.

Nice product

By Stan J.

Vest is very nice. I think it runs a bit small so I ordered one size larger. Perrrrrfect fit.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
Ronald W L  A replacement for one ordered that was much too small. These need to be measured before sending
Jeff L  Needed additional warmth
Robert M  To stay warmer
Scott E  price, 3mm vest for layering
Mike M  Style and comfort. Ever see Deliverance with Burt Reynolds? Need I say more?
geoffrey s  have purchased product before
John P  To supplement my dive skin while diving tropical waters and Henderson quality.
Dustin W  The zipper
Stan J  Price was right.
Jaime A  1) I have been ordering from Leisure Pro since 20 years ago with no problem so far 2) I have a Henderson wetsuit and the quality is excellent.
Jonathan J  I am 6'1, 185 pounds with 41 chest and 33 waist. Not sure what size will fit best. recommendations?
CARLTON D  The size chart is a little off. You will need the XL.
WILLIAM L  I am 5'9 & 165 lbs. the suit is a medium & fits me well. I don't think it would if I was much bigger. Our waist is the same but you outweigh me, have a slightly larger chest & are much taller so you may not fit a medium for example.
Mike E  I have a 40" chest and the L is a little loose so I prefer the M. The tighter fit is also warmer. However, I would recommend buying somewhere else. LeisurePro (LP) does not stand behind their products if there’s a problem. I purchased a high end dive computer that was defective. LP denied the warranty saying I caused the damage. After months of frustration, I had to file a complaint with the BBB. LP then said they returned it to the manufacturer who also denied the warranty and simply washed their hands of the situation. I contacted the manufacturer direct, who had no record of the computer being sent to them for inspection. I returned it directly to the manufacturer who replaced it immediately.
ALAN M  XXL - I am about the same size and that's what I wear
FREDERICK M  I am 5'9" 165 with a slightly smaller chest and same waist. I have a Large and it is snug over my 3mil full wetsuit. I had to return a Medium for the Large, so you probably would do well with an XL if they make that size. Overall I really like it when the water temp. is below 78 degrees. I get cold easily,
ROGER C  As this vest fits snugly, I would recommend a size XL. I had to return a size L and my chest measurement is 41.
bob j  is this a dry suit vest or is it a wet suit vest?
BRIAN M  This is a wet suit vest...
THOMAS L  It is a wet suit vest.
Beau V  wet suit vest. I use mine over my shorty in Bonaire if we are diving many dives as it helps keep my core temp warmer
PAUL M  This is a wetsuit vest.
Sheree K  Wet suit vest
ALAN M  This is a wet suit vest - very good quality - I wear it with a skin for some warmth in summer - or under a 3mm long wetsuit if the water temp gets down to 70-75 in winter (Florida Keys) - sizes run a bit small - get one size larger than usual. I needed XXL and am 6' tall 190 lbs.
