    Hi,

    I´m spanish who needs advice about weezle undersuit, here in Spain we have no references about this company.
    I´m such a big guy(198cm), i try to find but here is tailored and expensive. I found this undersuit in an English dive online shop with delivery to Spain.

    Link to the product:
    https://andark.co.uk/product/weezle-extreme-plus-one-piece-undersuit/?attribute_pa_sizes=xxl

    I dive with trilaminate drysuit, here in winter the water temperatures are around 9ºC (48,2º F) - 14ºC (57,2º F). Weezle extreme plus is for this temperatures?

    I see Weezle size chart, Which metrics are used?

    Some who have in XXL? Which model could recommend? Is online shop trustworthy?

    Thank you in advance!!! Regards!!!.


    P.D. Sorry for my English.

    Andark are a proper company. I've no problems in recommending them.

    No experience with the Weezle. I use several layers - in to out:
    • Fourth Element (FE) thermal vest
    • Sports T-shirt
    • Santi heated vest :)
    • FE long sleeve rash vest
    • FE Arctic extreme top
    For trousers, just the FE Arctic

    Thank you for your advices!.:)
    My main problem is the size of the suit, i think that weezle suits me and the other ones are good but it has to be tailored.:(

    I use a Weezle extreme under a trilaminate suit in water temperatures from 8 to 20 degrees. It's great.

    It's actually a series of layers (wicking, thermal hydrophobic, then water repellant shell). You can wash and tumble dry it.

    Weezle's website is www.weezle.co.uk i can't see a sizing chart there, but from my experience, if you email them, they're very helpful.

    Mine is an Extreme (no "plus").

    They don't say what temperatures they design it for, as each person feels the cold differently. I've had no problems in water as cold as 7-8 degrees or as warm as 20 degrees in the extreme. My coldest was 6 degrees for 30 minutes. If you tend to feel cold, go for the plus.

    Both Mike's and Andark dive stores are excellent and Weezle are a great company with an superb product. I'm 193cm tall and still using a XXL 'extreme' I bought in 2004.I add other layers in winter when it gets to around 8°C here. At 198cm it may be a little restrictive though. I suggest you message Paul Neville Child who owns the company. He's really helpful.

    You are right! I’m quite upset, didn’t expect something like that. I think i’m going to buy kwark extreme because in 3 weeks i’m going to dive in the ice and I need it.

    Finally, they answered me, but i doubt between extreme and extreme plus.

    Can anyone tell me the temperatures that dive with this undersuit?

    In Panticosa (Huesca) in Spain. There is a lake that in winter freeze and you can do this kind of diving.
    Here you a picture!

    Wow, now I see what you mean by cold!

    I thought that our winter diving in lakes such as Wraysbury (south-west London, near Heathrow) was cold at 5 degrees.

    I guess your dive times aren't that long under the Ice? Never done that myself, but I believe you have a rope which you're attached to?

    Note the guy wearing the blue dry gloves. They work well in the cold, obviously with really cold conditions you use thicker undergloves.

    I have never been, first time.
    I was speaking with my friend(instructor). Water temp 2 Celsius degrees. The course are 3 dives, we are going to do probably one more for the pictures.Yes, you are attached to a rope firstly and then free.
    Dry gloves are highly recommended.:)
