I do most of my diving in cold mountain lakes with the occasional foray to the British Columbia coast.

I've been looking at the cressi supercompetition, mainly because the price at the deeper blue online store looks reasonable (even when converted to the canadian peso ;) ), has anyone used this wetsuit before? If so what thoughts do they have?

Any other suggestions are welcome.
I have not tried that suit, but for cold waters...it looks fine..
I have metallite lining on my Escalpez 5,5mm suit and it worked fine at the Barents sea.. water temp was about +9C....
I think that supercomp suit looks good!
if yo udo buy it tell us what you think of it.
safe diving
Cressi suites

I havent used the supercompetition but i have a 5mm competition suit.
I think my suite works wery fine in kold conditions. Me and my buddy have been out diving in 2 degrees celsius for about 1 hour and it´s our feets an hands that stops us. so if the SuperC. is in the same quality that C. suite is i say go for it.


I have the supercomp and have posted quite a few raves about it if you feel like searching the site. Bottom line- excellent suit, very warm, well made, best suit for the money.
I'm with Jim. If you can't score a Picasso, the SuperComp is a sweet suit and combined with time in the water, you're in fat city.

On that note I've place my order. With any luck will arrive early next week!

Thanks everybody.
