I love my suit and the customer support was awesome I definitely recommend WAIHANA!!!
If you're normally comfortable while others are always cold around you, you might be better with a 1mm suit. I bought the 3mm and started using it in Maui during the month of April. I'm at the point where I constantly must insert new water to the suit all the time to cool down.
It fits great and everything is cool, just note that it might be too warm for you in the Hawaiian water in the spring-summer.
I wished I sized up. I played it by the books and went according to Waihana’s sizing chart which said I was an extra small (I’m around 5’2 at 128 lbs). The first wetsuit I bought was a women’s Goliath grouper wetsuit in a 3mm extra small. Bottoms barely fit and couldn’t get the top past my wide shoulders lol. It was kind of a bummer after investing so much into it. I ended up buying the women’s essentials wetsuit in a 3mm small which fits so much better. Other than the sizing discrepancy, the suit is high quality and keeps me pretty warm! Definitely worth the purchase after you get your size figured out.
I love it man!! So much comfort in every movement I do underwater but if I do tag y’all I hope that you guys shout me out :(
Very well made and comfortable suit. 5mm maybe a little too insulated for my needs, but I aint getting cold so no can complain. Whistle for safety and the knife pocket to keep tools for scientific diving are clutch! Going to get the 3mm in same design!
