Neoprene Diver Suit Recommendation?


Looking into getting a Batman Forever Panther costume kit. Any recommendations on a neoprene Diver suit to match the urethane armor?

Welcome to the BOTB! As for your question: Neoprene for divers (3mm) is only good if you are in a cold country or in winter. And it is very flexible, means the armor can sag on it, if you glue it.I recommend surfer suits, means very thin neoprene (1mm), or to get the suit sewn with a breathable textile and get some black urethane rubber on the visible parts, or black latex.Mount the armor with straps and you will be always able to wash your undersuit (realy needed) and to adjust for comfort and also be able to sell your armor for a nice price if you ever want to sell it.

Use a 0.5 mm suit max. I "usually" get a Body Glove 1 pc suit but 2 piece suits could be better (I haven't tried that yet). All of my costumes are on 0.5 mm 1 pc back zipper suits.
