Scuba suits tend to be of a different design to spearfishing- freediving suits and more often than not they are thicker.
A lot depends on where you live or intend to dive, 5mm would not be very popular as a scuba suit in the U.K. but 5mm is perfect for spearfishing.
There are lots of fantastic suits available straight off the shelf unless you have a unusual body shape.
The price varies !camo or non camo,High qaulity to standard qaulity.They have about 100 different colours and of camo,soft to medium high stretch smooth interior or fleese lined smooth or nylon exterior.different thicknesses.Made to measure or standard fit.The 2 to 3 months is the waiting time for made to measure,Standard 5mm 180 euro economic black then the courier price more cost added.I went to the shop paid deposit waited 3 months the protective knee patch on one knee was to the side.The ancles ! one was larger one smaller allowing more water to flow in.I paid 333 euro so did my friend for the same suit 7mm.we were told that the suit material was treated with a new chemical that uppon exiting the water in winter the wet suit would displace the salt water! The water would not remain on the suit this we had been told from his wife uppon the 1st use this was proven to be a lie we confronted her more fiction apllied to our ears .i have had one suit out of 5 suits that i have purchased that was ok from elios th 6mm wet socks are ok,.I no longer shop their! we had paid 80 euro more for that 7mm suit with two people that comes to 160 euro we were not compensated in any way for this nor did we receive an appology.for all the suits i have had cressi scorfanno 7mm brought to me a pleasure its avaliable in 5mm also,.I hope my experience helps youHi,
I am after a new scuba diving suit. What is the price of the Elios 5mm and 7mm suits please? Does anyone know how they compare to say a 5 or 7mm waterproof suit? Im after a good warm suit and after doing research one thing for sure is that not all 5mm suits for example offer the same warmth however well they fit. Are Elios suits the way forward? Thanks
