We stock wetsuits from all the main brands. It's a pretty large range so feel free to call us on 020 8953 7578 for help and guidance. You can also pop in to our Borehamwood Scuba and Snorkel store to try them on too.
Generally speaking in colder waters you'd choose a 7mm wetsuit. For warmer climes like the Mediterranean a 5mm wetusit is best, and for the tropics you'd choose a 3mm one.
If you aren't totally sure, we would suggest a slightly thicker one as you don't want to end up feeling chilly, and try to plan your wetsuit choice around the deepest part of your dive where the waters get colder. Adding a thermal layer or even just a rashvest will create extra warmth.
Full-length wetsuits are definitely a consideration in coral or rockier waters where stings or scrapes could happen as they will add the necessary protection for arms and legs.
To make your wetsuit last longer, don't leave it out in direct sunlight, and buy a good neoprene wetsuit cleaner to wash off the elements that will otherwise degrade the neoprene.
