3mm Men's Henderson THERMOPRENE Shorty - Front Zip
The Thermoprene wetsuit line is Henderson's bread and butter, and for good reason. The line gives the user excellent performance at an affordable price. All products in the line are constructed using Henderson's signature Thermoprene neoprene. This neoprene boasts 180% super stretch, giving the user a lot of flexibility and comfort. The neoprene is laminated with pill and abrasion resistant fabric for durability. All seams are sealed, meaning glued and blindstitched to prevent cold water from entering the suit. Edges at the cuffs are lycra trimmed for comfort and chafe resistance.
The Thermoprene front zip springsuits have durable full front zippers for easier entry and exit. A thin flap of neoprene protects your skin from the zipper and provides additional comfort.

My first wetsuit
Reviewer: Steve Collyer
I'm in my 60s and still love to boogie board. The past few years the water was too cold. After my wife kept suggesting to get a wetsuit, I finally did. This one seemed to be the best and I was not disappointed. I was in the water over 5 hours in two days. I am a L-XL and bought the XXL to be safe. I probably could have bought the XL but now my larger son/grandsons can use it too. I thought the quality and price equal the value. STRONG RECOMMENDATION
I have used many wet suits and this one is the best choise for warm water applications . Front zip is much faster and easier to put on and off.
Reviewer: Jim - Hatteras Island Rescue, NC
We have been using the Henderson 3mm front zip shorty wetsuits for awhile now; probably 8-10 years. It is the preferred wetsuit by our rescue members for the following reasons: It is donned quickly and can be done so in the back of a rescue vehicle or in 20 seconds or less prior to departure from the station. It can be removed quickly after a call and if we have a second call while it is still wet, it can be re-donned without difficulty. It is durable and survives being stowed in a gear bag by our members.
We provide ocean rescue via PWCs with water temps usually between 64 to 78 degrees and it works very well in this application. Some of our members continue to use it in the summer for the added warmth and protection (sunburn, abrasions from the rescue sled and jellies). It is used because it is quick and easy to don (and it looks sharp as well!).
It goes on easy over skin or a tee shirt and trunks.
We always try to buy Henderson and Wetsuit Warehouse had the best price and the shipping was super fast.
pretty happy with it, although not tried in water yet. Happy with this site too with free shipping...and look for a coupon code. Seems like really good quality and pretty glad I didn't go with the base Henderson for halve the price although things are tight right now. 10 yr warranty and I see that it should last a long time. I'm very glad I went with a size larger (XL) also. I was concerned because my chest is at the top of the large scale despite the hips and other areas falling well within the L. It is harder than I thought to get off unless you unzip it completely..which I don't remember doing with an old shorty in the past..and that's fine
Reviewer: Dr. John A. Lauby
This is a great wetsuit and fits perfectly. The zipper goes all the way down the left front leg and the suit practically falls off when you unzip it completely. Don't know how anyone could say this is hard to take off. I think zipping the first part of the leg is cumbersome until you do it a few times but would not say it is a negative.
Reviewer: Bill from Pasadena, CA
Just received this wetsuit and am very happy with both the quality and the ease of taking it on and off (my previous Ski-warm wetsuit required 2 people). Can't comment on the longevity yet although it appears to be very well made. Be forewarned that it doesn't run big - I'm often between a medium and large and the Henderson large is perfect.
Best Shorty Wetsuit
Termoprene Shorty is easy on and easy off with full zipper for one side and step in on other side. Extremely comfortable and perfect fit for size chart.
Effective But Difficult to Take Off
Reviewer: Dr. J.S. Graber
This product is effective and comfortable for recreational swimming. However, with the front zip design it is quite difficult to take off. Company should prepare and publish instructions on the most convenient ways to put the suit on and to take to suit off.
