7mm Men's NeoSport Waterman Wetsuit Jacket
Waterman a name given to a person who works or spends his life on, in or around the water. We couldn't think of a better name for our new John and Jacket combination. From its diamond plate knee pads to the trident waterman logo, this suit is all business. Designed to be used and abused and the best part its an incredible value, so replacing a suit a few times a season will not eat the profits of long day on the water. Available in 3mm, 5mm and 7mm. Johns and Jacket sold separately.

This is advertised as a 7 mm wetsuit. But this only becomes a 7 mm wetsuit if you also combine it with the 3 mm long john pants wetsuit. Printed on the wetsuit itself, it says it is a 3 mm wetsuit.

Getting over that, this wetsuit works well. Since it has a "shorts" section where your legs fit in, it can be used as a spring suit. And if you combine it with the long john wetsuit, it adds padding to your core for a full wetsuit. Getting it on can be challenging, but after you do it a few times, it becomes easy. It's well built, and works fine for extended periods in the water.

Just knocked it down 2 stars because it's advertised as a 7 mm, when it is a 3 mm.

i ended up buying both the jacket and waterman bottom from leisurepro and i am definitely not disappointed , the top wouldn't close and zip over the bottom {both were large and i am a very fit individual so the issue wasn't my girth} but leisure pro was very helpful and exchanged the large top for a xl top and paid for the shipping cost for exchange , i recommend you get xl top and large bottom or whatever your size is go 1 up for the jacket- that being said the suit seems more than adequate for cold waters like here in ca where the water reaches 40 and lower where hypothermia is a concern- the kneepads are cheap and will not provide much protection but buying pads or a rubber buffer would be simple enough, the stitching looks solid and all around id say im very pleased for what i spent i recommend to anyone looking for great value and a bang for there buck

When I ordered this because of some ambiguity in the description I wasn't sure if I was going to get a 3mm or a 7mm wet suit jacket, it's more like a 3/4 suit than a jacket but anyway ...

It's a nice, heavy 7mm suit. It's well designed and as wet suits go it's fairly easy to get into and out of even when it's wet. Step into the closed leg, put the opposite arm in the sleeve, put the next arm in the sleeve, scrootch it around until it sits right and zip it up. It's a little harder to get off wet than it is to put on dry but it's still not so bad I'm cursing it when I have to take it off alone. Of course, if you can get someone to pull the sleeve on the side that zips for you, well it's a lot easier to remove with some help.

I had to try it right away when I got it, so I put it on, donned mask, flippers, flipper slippers, snorkel and weight belt and jumped in my pool. I'm sure I looked pretty silly with all that gear on in an 85 degree pool but hey, new stuff gotta try it. I got too hot pretty quick- warm water, sunshine and a black 7mm wet suit will do that.

Since then I've used it offshore a few times and it's holding up very well. No seams are pulling out, it's easy to rinse the salt out of it, it hasn't stretched out of shape, and it's nice and warm/comfy in ocean water that's a lot cooler than my pool, the zipper is heavy duty and can stand being pulled on with whatever force it takes to zip it, and it does exactly what a quality suit should do. At the price it's a real bargain for those times when just swim trunks are not enough but a full, serious wet suit is too much.

I'm a fairly big guy, 6 feet and 210 lbs so I got the largest size they sold. I'm glad I did, according to the size chart I should have gotten the next size smaller but this fits so well that I'm sure that next smaller size would have pulled and bound places you don't want a suit to do that. I have a fairly long torso for my height so if you're a couple inches taller and "normal" the largest size will likely work OK for you too.

I'm very happy with this item, it seems to be made as well or nearly as well as my full BailySuit and it's a lot easier to get in and out of for cool but not cold water.

This suit was amazing in water in the low 50s. I was warm instantly and stayed that way for the two hours I was diving in it. Yes it's a little stiff because of the thickness of the material but could easily swim with it never once feeling cold. Buy this.

Fits nicely. Have not used it in the water yet, but it will be good. Stitching and workmanship are solid. I bought this to remove any chill in early spring quarry dives. The fact that the two parts overlap will make it very warm. Sized properly following their specs. Very good value.

Update: Used in 50 degree water. Works perfectly. Although a dry suit would probably make me warmer, for the price, this was awesome.

Had to return mine since it was way too big and bulky for me. But given the right size and if I was going into very cold water I’d consider one on top of a full 3mm suit.

Great product! It's well made, very warm and very reasonably priced. I was in sub 50 degree water for 75 minutes and never was cold. Like others have noted; please be sure you BUY ONE SIZE LARGER THAN YOU TYPICALLY WEAR. They're designed to fit tight and these do run a little small.

Best part of this wetsuit, it EZ ON / EZ OFF. I wear it often for work, and it has worked great so far. Only thing to watch out for, is that it is VERY short in the torso. I am 6'2" / 190lbs and bought an XL and it is tight in all the wrong places (if you know what I mean).

I was at the upper end of the size range suggested and it fits perfectly. I bought the 7mm and the buoyancy is really strong, so be prepared to add weights if you want to dive. It’s really warm; which is really good for people who can’t stand cold water. I can now stay for hours instead of the dive and get-out-of-the-water-as-fast-as-possible of before. The version I received is even better than the one portrayed in the pictures as it has larger panels without as many seams on the back. NeoSport has become my reference for future wetsuit purchases and accessories.

I was a bit leery to purchase because of the low price, but only needed it for 2 open water dives to complete my Rescue Diver course. It worked great I also had the lower “farmer John” part so I was double thickness in the core. Was in 52 degree water for over 2 hours and wasn’t one bit cold. Also had on the 5mm hood and gloves.
I’m 6’2” 250 lbs and the XXXL fit well. Went with the XXL for the “farmer john” part

According to sizes, I fitted in the Large category for shoulder, weight, Height and waist.
But once I tried the product I realized it's less fitted in some areas. Under the arm pits, knees and elbows.
The arms and legs have a very straight design and are probably more fitted to someone who's a little chubby.
Being somewhat athletic, I'm a bit heavier and wider, but I'm smaller around joints. Meaning this suit doesn't fit me well and tends to create big folds in these areas. Very Nice suit, well constructed and seems pretty warm.
Simply not a good fit for my Body Size.

Sizes are too large in dimensions and range of choices .wetsuits are supposed to fit tightly in order to insulate .7 mm is probably too thick to guarantee close body adherence .Best solution would be 5 mm with internal thin lining of fleece or similar material .I use it for white water kayaking under a dry suit .

I love this wet-suit, it fit as expected and is very warm at 7mm. If your going to be moving around a lot go with the 3mm.
