Hi all,
I am looking to buy a wet suit. I would like a full suit in 5mm. I live in the Philippines where I will do just about all my diving. There are so many manufacturers and styles to choose from. Anyone have any suggestions? Are Henderson good? Thanks again for any help.

ST is having a sale on Henderson Thermoprene 5mm. I have the 3mm; very stretchy, very comfortable.

Everyone has their favorites, and the deciding factor is fit, and sometimes cost can enter into it too. For example, Pinnacle suits fit me best, with Henderson coming in second. Alot of people really like the Henderson Hyperstretch suits. My 5mm suit is a Henderson Gold Core, which is very comfortable to dive in. I use a Pinnacle suit for my 7mm suit. Subjectively I think the Pinnacle suits are better built than the Henderson suits. Look at the measurements of suits for each manufacturer you might consider, and see if their suit measurements come close to fitting you. Then you can decide what to try out.
