    Bare Velocity Wetsuit

    I just bought this suit and a Large Short fit 5'7" me with 16'' calfs, big guns and wide lats. It fit great right out of the box. I own Xcel, Body Glove and have tried Henderson (There hyperstretch pilled like a thousand year old pair of polyester pants! Everything velcro ate it up!) This is the suit for the average gym guy who can't get his arm guns in a suit. It stretches and has lengths that others want you to chop off on your dime. I tried on 6 other manufacturers and none came close to the fit of this suit. Try one you will love it! Bare Velocity 3/2mm with great colors not the lame duck plain of others. 9 of 10! Made in Canada!

    ST just added the 5/4 Velocity to their rental fleet. I used one (how cool is it to rent a wetsuit and have to take it out of the shipping box first!) for my 6 AOW dives and loved it. Very comfortable, easy don/doff and very warm. Highly recommended.

    I have the 3/2 it is a very nice suit but I'm cold natured so after a week of multiple dives I start getting cold with it but mine has about a 100 dives now so its probably losing its effectiveness I think I may try the Pinnacle Seal if I ever get to 250 posts

    I have had a Bare 7mm for 2+ years now and love it. It is easier to don than my Akona 3mm.

    The bare suits seem to have longer arms which is nice for knuckle draggers like myself...
    Well, it seemed like a good idea at the time!!!

    I have 3 Bare suits - a 2mm shorty, 3mm Progressive, and 7mm Alpine. Love them all for there purposes. The 2mm is great for pool work with students so I don't rashes and stay warm ALL DAY. The 3mm is great for summer and at the aquarium I volunteer at. It is very comfortable and has good stretch. The 7mm (with hood) for winter. Nice and warm, good limit on water flow. If it gets real bad I can wear the 2mm over the 7mm.

    Last year I bought a Bare Velocety 5/4. It's Great. I used it in Hawaii and New York. And paring it with either a hood or hooded vest makes it very versital.
