Wetsuits can be worn all year round, however depending on where you live and the water temperatures your can sometimes get away with it in summer. Scuba wetsuits come in different thicknesses, sizes and styles. Finding the correct on for you can be tricky however here at Dive Warehouse we can help!

A 3mm suit is generally used in summer, warmth is a small factor, however sun protection and stinger protection is a big part. 3mm dive suits and super flexible and comfortable.
A 5mm dive suit is generally used in winter and is the most popular pick when purchasing one. Not only is it perfect for those cold days/nights, but it also stops sunburn, stingers and scraps. Just because its a 5mm doesnt mean you cant wear it in summer due to being too hot, this is because if you start to warm up, just open the neck to flood the suit and you will cool down instantly.
