Review: Aqua Sphere Aqua Skinsuit - Review Aquasphere Aqua Skinsuit

The Aqua Sphere Aqua Skinsuit occupies a fairly rarefied niche in the wetsuit/tri-suit/swim skin universe. Unlike most tri-suits it lacks thick neoprene flotation panels. Unlike a pure swim-skin, it does provide some insulation.  These features, combined with a low price point, make these suits pretty appealing for freedivers looking for a warm-water competition/training suit.

This is my second Aqua Skin and it has significant improvements in construction, materials and cut over the older model.

The Specs

Here are the specs from Aqua Sphere:

  • Quick drying
  • 100% UVA/UVB protection
  • Can be used in both the Pool and in Open Water
  • Wrist and Ankle Cuffs that keep water out
  • Aqua Flex Double Lock Neck with Aqua Grip Seal double layer, which maximizes comfort, while keeping water out of the suit
  • 0.5 – 1mm Glide Skin neoprene that is ultra soft for comfort, water repellent, and  fast drying
  • Thermo-Guard technology, which provides warmth, maximum flexibility and range of motion in the shoulders, legs, and chest

For the record, I am in agreement with all of that.

    • Hi Conrad - the legs, in particular, are cut a little large around the knees and lower thighs.

      • i just got this suit, it suggested i was a XXL, so i ordered and XL, it fits me nice and tight, except the knees. havent used it yet, will the slightly lose knees cause any problems? i dont think i would fit in a size smaller
