I just got my new 3mm Waterproof Gear (my friends in St. Thomas are one of the few US dealers for them). NICE!!!! It's such a cool design - I've heard some complain that it looks too "power ranger-y", but I think it's nice to have something that stands out! Plus they understand that not all women divers are 5'4" and 110lbs. Meeeee happyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!! :D

You will love this wetsuit. A lot of time and detail went into designing these suits, especially the women's version. It's easy to put on dry and even after a couple of days of diving, when it's still damp it will go on easy. My local LDS sells them and the reviews have all been positive...enjoy!

I tried it on as soon as it was out of the box and it fit great! I am 5'8" and it was great to have the sleeves and legs be long enough! I can't wait to dive it!!

You'd better be careful with that suit.

You're going to be mistaken for a Bond girl!

What ever gave either of you the idea that I'm knocking Bond? Perish the thought!

I have the Waterproof Libra Hooded Vest and it is very well made. They are a little hard to find in LDSs.

I was kidding! (hense the smiley :) :) :) ) I take being called a Bong GIrl as a compliment and knew you meant as such.

I have the 3mm and the 5mm Hooded vest - and I am very pleased with both. My LDS is really starting to push these, and I understand why. Nice suits at a reasonable price.

I have one of their 7mm suits and love it. It was a bit pricey but definitely worth it.

I checked these suits out when I was in St Thomas. I really like the design of the wrist and ankle seals but they are a little pricey for my taste. Im just going to save my money and dive with my 5mm thermoprene this year and save for a dry suit since I rarely dive in warm water. FYI there was a young lady who was wearing one on our dives and it didn't look power ranger ish at all.

The womens suits are very nice, actually. It's the men's suits that are really over the top.

It's a shame I can't stand the styling, because they're definitely nice and well made. But a fella has to have his standards...
