    Hi,

    I have the option on a good condition used Hollis 7.1 SD semi-dry wetsuit but I can't get to try it on before buying.

    I've looked at the sizing chart but I'm sceptical as some wetsuit manufacturers seem to not be very accurate. However, I have no experience of Hollis and don't know anyone that does :(

    Just wondered if anyone on here has experience of Hollis wetsuit sizing please, i.e. is it pretty accurate to the chart or is it tight/generous meaning I need to go up/down, respectively, on size?

    Thanks in anticipation :joyful:

    No direct experience.

    Fit is everything though with most wetsuits. Hopefully it's enough of a bargain that you can shift it on if it doesn't fit you.

    from experiance, unless you want a cheap 3mm/5mm wetsuit, for egypt and warmer seas,
    get a made to measure, 03 seem very good price wise, for neoprene, depends where you live in the country.

    Thanks for the replies. I'm in S Wales, so not near OThree, unfortunately, but I've since seen an OThree 6x5 suit advertised but again I can't try it on due to distance and again have no idea on accuracy of sizing charts ...frustrating!!

    Ok not been on for a while so far too late for a responce to help the OP, but this might help someone who browses for the info later.

    I am just under 5ft 11 inches. I weigh approx 17st large calfs. inside leg 31 inch
    I have the Hollis in size XXL and it fit is very good just a tad bit more length in the arms and legs. so I would say the fit is pretty close to size chart.

    About 3cm shorter in legs and about 2cm maybe at a real push 3cm shorter in arms and it would be perfect and fit like a made to measure.
