Forgive me, but this is actually related to ST.com, not to the forum itself.

The website itself is well-organized, and I can find what I'm looking for with few problems. However, the wetsuit section could perhaps use some more categories. Today I wanted to look at 5mil suits. I had to look at ALL the wetsuits in order to mentally eliminate the non-5mils. While it is good that the suits are separated into lycra/men/women, it may be a bit better to navigate if the breakdown is into thicknesses (irregardless of shorty, full), such as:

lycra/rashguards
1/2mil
3mil (and 4/3, 3-2-2, etc.)
5mil (and 6/5 mil, 5-4-3, etc.)
7mil (and 8/6mil, 7/5, etc.)
semi-dry

I tend to shop by thickness, not paying attention to men's/women's, and I am guessing a lot of other people do too.

Good suggestion... We'll work on breaking up that way as well....

Agreed. As much as I despise LP, the "drill down method their website offers is quite effective. I miss it on other sites, when I'm trying to find something quickly, as opposed to casual browsing (for which the ST site is much better).

I agree with CompuDude, the drop down is nice. Namabiru has a good suggestion of splitting things up by thickness.

Done already? But i can't find a filter to select the thickness of the wetsuit?

Just go to the left menu and click on wetsuits... Then you'll see the left menu Expands to mend and womens... Click on your choice, then you will see the menu expands to give thickness choices.

Dang, that was quick. I don't think there's many more sites/stores that come anywhere close to how well you respond to customers and how helpful you guys are. Keep up the awesome work!

Customer service is what makes these guys so popular. It's the only dive shop I make plans to visit while traveling. I've gone a couple hundred miles out of my way to stop in.

Not only does it look fantastic, but you even kept the suits separated out by men's and women's (I figured they would just re-sort by size). Well done, and very easy to navigate!
