I will mimic what Tom said.

I have the 2 piece set and really like it. They are super fluffy though and do take more weight. Even doing 2 dives in the ~40* temps I am nice and warm. Last year when we did one of our rescue trainings I was in ice water playing "victim" for the SAR and Fire Dept to rescue so I probably spent the better part of 3-4 hrs in the water with no problem (thank god for pee valves).

In the summer I wear a Bare T-100 and that is usually enough unless you find a nasty thermocline.

I do wear a set of polar fleece as a base layer.

I have a friend who dives the "regular" Weezle Extreme year round. In the dead of Winter he would say that he would get cold.

So, when I purchased my Weezle i chose the Extreme Plus. My logic was that if i was dropping a crap ton (for me) of money on an undergarment I never wanted to be cold again.

For the most part that has been the case. I have been in waters in the low 40's diving in Neah Bay for a week straight, and in Hood Canal by the outflow of a river (water in the 30's) and I didn't even think about temperature during the dive. It has been wonderful. I have dove with leaky drysuits coming up very wet but even then I never got cold.

In the Summer I wear different undergarments - I typically go to my Weezle maybe in October, then dive it through April-May, then I have a Summer undergarment I wear.

The only thing I don't like is needing to put about 4 extra pounds in because of the loft of the Weezle, but that is what is keeping me warm so i really can't complain.

Oh - I dive a shell suit. A tighter neoprene dry suit might give some problems.

Good luck!

Extreme+ is warmer still. Just sayin... You won't complain if you arrive at Don's on hood canal in winter to find ice in the marina.

No problem, Matt! I can actually order any time, so this isn't just a one-time order.

I got an "Oxygen" set from John last year and love them. They make it real easy to stay warm on a dive. I still wear my Bare T-100 in the summer as the Weezle is too warm.

With the advent of seasonal cold weather, I'm sure that some of you will be looking to be warmer during dives in the months ahead! Check out the original post in this thread for prices on Weezle undersuits and let me know by PM if you'd like to place an order.

Remember - since they must be shipped from the UK and pass through US Customs they take between 2 and 4 weeks to get here, so plan ahead!

I give a hearty 2 thumbs up for Weezle skins. I have a top that I LOVE. It made the difference between wanting to get out of the water at 28 minutes and being comfortable for an hour. I also have a Weezle beanie that I wear under my hood which makes a big difference. Can't recommend them enough.

Recently, Weezle "Skins" have become quite popular. Skins are special long underwear - tops and trousers - that a diver wears underneath the Weezle undergarment for added warmth and comfort. They come in two different thicknesses: regular "Skins" and "Extreme Skins".

If anyone is interested in getting some "Skins", here are the current prices:

Regular Weezle Skins:

Top: $67.50
Bottom: $61.00

Weezle Extreme Skins:

Top: $88.00
Bottom: $80.00

For prices on Weezle Undergarments, please see the first post in this thread. The prices remain the same.

Well, looks like our "Summer" is now gone and colder weather is just around the corner!

Anyone wanting a new Weezle to stay warm underwater in the coming months, please drop me a PM or e-mail....

Tired of the old black, blue or yellow Weezles? For the Yanks (and Brits) that love their patriotic colors, Weezle has announced that they now have a Red, White and Blue undersuit, available in both the Extreme and Extreme Plus weights: http://www.weezle.co.uk/info/news.htm

If you somehow find a better price on a new Weezle, let me know and I'll do my best to beat it! :taco:

For a look at Calvin's new Weezle, take a look at this thread: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=14798

With this cold snap we've been having there's probably some divers in need of a Weezle out there! I'm getting ready to send in another order....if anyone wishes to get in on it please drop me a PM.

I can order any product that Weezle makes....I just received some Weezle "Russian Hats" for some folks here and they are now enjoying nice warm heads at the dive site!

I'm sorry, John, for writing that it didn't have a bidirectional zipper. You are right -- I didn't dig into the bottom of the zipper placket to see if there was another zipper pull down there.

I wonder what WOULD be involved in putting in a butt zipper . . . Hmm, should find a tailor and ask.

you do know Lynne that putting the 2 way zipper and a butt flap (may I call it that? :rofl: ) would be really really easy....

FYI:
I just looked at the one's I have here in the shop... it's true, every one of them have the 2 way zipper...

Yes, every Weezle that I own (four) has a bi-directional zipper. As Richard says, though, unless you REALLY look closely you won't see it. After you use it for the first time, though, it's no longer hidden. Lynne must not have looked too closely (it was a brand-new one that belonged to someone else, so she was probably hesitant about poking around too forcefully).

Octoloco wrote:I do like the 2 piece but I don't think it comes in an extreme plus (does it John?)


That is correct - the two-piece "Oxygen Set" does NOT come as an Extreme Plus.

Grateful Diver should post a comment here attesting to the weezle. His whole front was totally wet after each dive. He swore he wasn't cold just wet. Unless he was numb from the cold :nutty:

I do like the 2 piece but I don't think it comes in an extreme plus (does it John?)
