I have just bought a Henderson Thermoprene - and it seems to be a good suit (I just got it and have not got into the water yet)

My body type (if I follow the Henderson size chart) says that I need the 3XL but when I tried it on, it seemed too loose on me so I called ST and asked their advice. Joey Johnson suggested that he could send the 2XL to me and I could send back the one I don't want. AND yes - I fitted into the 2XL perfectly!!!

Before buying the Henderson - call ScubaToys Customer Service and talk to them. They will do their best to make you happy!!!

I am between sizes on wetsuits and I purchased the Henderson 5mm Thermoprene. I haven't gotten it wet yet but it does seem to fit very well i.e. tight where it should be and not binding in areas like behind the knees

The merino is very warm, but that price on the pinnacle, I think you should get the 7mm instead as it is only a little more, but since you need a 5mm, the henderson shouldn't be a problem. Personally I would go with Akona just because I like full black. :D

I dive a Henderson 3mm Thermoprene in the warm water and I love it. I originally got it for the pool work in my open water course-Its great. Very comfortable and not constricting.
