The seams are glued and blind stitched for your comfort and better durability, along with a front zipper opening all the way for easy donning.

The company iSnorkel specializes in wetsuits built just for men, including those who sometimes don’t fit with the wetsuit sizing list. Thanks to their newly available design, they now offer a front zipper version for easy on and off experience every time.

Delivering the best quality and performance above the rest, this wetsuit has fantastic value. Thermoprene is great for any budget minded diver who would like to have the best wetsuit made with the greatest materials and design, along with a perfectly manufactured construction.

The thermoprene crafted within this wetsuit is made of high quality neoprene, that has more than 75% stretch compared to your standard wetsuit material. This big stretch significantly improves a diver’s comfort by making the thermoprene suits more flexible than the local competition.

Rather than non thermoprene suits, thermoprene makes it a whole lot easier to get in and out of your wetsuit, without much of a hassle, pulling it over your shoulders, and around your torso, without the big, huffing and puffing workout of standard wetsuits. The material within the suit stands up pretty well to friction, allowing it to not show undue wear from weight belts and BC straps.

Want the features and design benefits of a more expensive wetsuit in a greatly affordable one? No worries, this wetsuit is the bread and butter for iSnorkel!

Thick Thermoprene Wetsuit Shorty


You can pair this wetsuit up with a jumpsuit to help with the colder waters, or wear it in your bare bottoms so not to get too warm in the warm tropical waters, due to the suit being 3MM thick.

The zipper is even a heavy duty zip, making it easy to layer seamlessly with back entry wetsuits, and easy on the joints when getting into. The lycra trimmed arm and leg holes allow a nice snug fit in this shorty, and the glued and blind stitched seams, all provide a great fit and quality finish.

This thermoprene shorty wetsuit potency is based off of the contoured fit that helps keep cold water exchange to a minimum, combined with the superior grade neoprene providing maximum heat retention.

Looking for an environmental product? The Henderson’s men thermoprene shorty wetsuit uses a limestone based polyorpene, decreasing the dependency on oil and oil based chemicals, therefore providing a more environmentally friendly manufacturing production.

Stretchy But Durable

This suit is great for people who are taller than 5’10 or over 200 lbs. The suits are made to fit perfectly, especially with the easy on and off feature due to the front zipper. Henderson’s line will provide you with great performance at a super affordable price! All of their products are manufactured with Henderson’s only signature thermoprene neoprene.

The neoprene will boost your stretch to 190%! That’s way more than the traditional wetsuits on the market today! The suit is even laminated with abrasion fabric for better durability as well. Never have to worry about cold water entering the suit, as all the seams are sealed tight with glue as the first layer, then blind stitched tightly, close together. The Lycra trimmed arm and leg holes also prevent chafe, and better comfort. Love this shorty! – 5 STARS
