    Waterproof W4 vs Scubapro Definition or Everflex

    Quite specific as there are some decent offers. I'll probably just buy and chance returning if need be (no scope to go travelling to dive stores at the minute) but just wondered if anyone had any experience of these, in terms of flexibility and sizing accuracy, mainly?
    Thanks,
    S.

    I already have waterproo'f suits and their boots and yes I like their suits. I am actually after a new better fitting suit though as my other is old and my body shape has changed. I hardly ever see waterproof suits in the sale, see this could be a good buy.

    I have an Everflex and as a rotund 5'9 it fits excellently and is stretchy enough that the 5/4mm has kept me more than warm enough in 17c (for dives lasting around 45 minutes).

    Edited to add, dived in this from just under 90kgs to just under 100kgs

    Another happy Everflex diver at 173cm 80kg, the chap I was diving with in Gozo last year was a very similar shape and size had the Waterproof W4 which seemed to do the job for him as a pro.

    Chanced the waterproof and it didn't fit! Went for 2XL - 6foot, 97kg, broad shoulders but not particularly 'beefy'!
    Lovely suit, good fit across the shoulders but baggy arms and chest so am planning on sending it back.
    I'll have a look at the Scubapro now!

    No, but I was prepared to pay for postage if needed!
