Re: Fins

Cool! I think the fins are a nice addition to a cool wetsuit, and a nice way to restrict the movement of somebody ;-) Exactly! On land that is. Hilarious to watch someone stumbling around in big fins. There's also another type of fin - the monofin. It looks like a fish tail but joins both feet so y...

Hmm, I wonder what he's doing in that scene. Would like to see more!

Re: Fins

Can you elaborate on the "cannot walk around in them part"? I never gave getting fins much thought and also thought one could walk with them on land when lifting the legs high enough. Possible, but clumsy. The longer and floppier fins, the harder it gets. I can walk short distances in my short and ...

Fins

Anyone here likes fins? I do! My local dive shop had some fins for sale so I picked up a pair of Hotshots. Yet to try them in the water, but tried them for a few hours while watching TV. They're comfy when strapped in properly. But you can't walk around in them so you're 'stuck'. Haha! :D https://ww...

Re: New wetsuit

Maybe both? Neoprene mask is snug with nearly no air gaps but leaves eyes exposed. Gas mask protects eyes but has air gaps in it. Or consider a full face scuba mask, if you actually dive and can afford one. It's like a gas mask but for scuba, and will match a wetsuit hood nicely.

Re: New wetsuit

Nice suit. Even better if it was smoothskin or was wet. Face mask and gloves would be sweet!

Re: Ultrathin 0.3 mm neoprene gloves. Ever tried ?

Looks nice and shiny, but I'm worried it might be fragile or not very warm. Could still be useful for keeping sunburn or nasty sea creatures off your hands, as long as you're not rubbing or holding much stuff.

Here's the vid:

Re: Super thin smoothskin wetsuits

I checked out the Omer 1.5mm suit at a local dive shop. It's jet black and looked very nice. The material is nice and thin, a bit like sleeves on an Orca, but stretchier and darker. If only I could afford one.

Gloves

What sort of gloves do you like or have? I have 2mm smoothskin surf gloves for swimming amongst sharp rocks or when my hands get cold (hasn't happened yet). The material looks just like my Orca wetsuit. I also have biker leather gloves with armour in the knuckles. They match my Brando leather jacket...

Re: Latex in public

I'm a big fan of gear in public. All kinds, spandex, neoprene, etc. My IG has lots of pics @gearmutt. Usually people want to touch it, or ask about it. Rarely has anyone been negative. I heard similar from a local who went out to a party district in latex on a Saturday night. It's an intriguing exp...

I like wetsuits with attached hoods most. Agreed that full face hood would be best, but i dont have one. Do you?
I don't have one, but did see a video where someone wore a neoprene mask over hooded suit. It's in the videos section

Hoods

Who here likes wetsuit or rubber hoods? Any in your collection?

I personally like smoothskin hoods but largely too warm here. Full face hoods are even better, but they're so rare.

Re: Super thin smoothskin wetsuits

I would love to see the pictures, but they are not there. I tried the Beuchat Zento at a shop. I like the thin and smooth material, but did not fit me. It feels different from thicker triathlon suits. The thinner rubber means the smooth outside is closer to your skin and you feel more sensations whe...

Re: Wetsuits you're currently lusting after.

That's one super shiny suit I'd love to wear, but somewhat pricey. Cost more than an Orca. https://ae01.alicdn.com/kf/HTB1GtwQKk9WBuNjSspeq6yz5VXaG.jpg https://ae01.alicdn.com/kf/HTB1DV80FVXXXXb4XVXXq6xXFXXXE/202405516/HTB1DV80FVXXXXb4XVXXq6xXFXXXE.jpg?size=79250&height=750&width=750&hash=eda8cfc97c...
