Great suits for the price!
We got these for boogie boarding for our kids, ages 6 and almost 5. Although they should really have 4 or 5mm for best protection in our cold San Francisco waters, this is a good starter for now on sunny days until they get more serious. Couldn't beat the price for the quality. Flexible and soft.
Size 6/8 fits my 6 y/o child who is 49" tall and 47 lbs (quite skinny). The waist is a little loose as she is skinny, but otherwise perfect fit in legs, chest, and arms.
Size 4/6 just barely fits my almost 5 year old who is 43" tall and 43 lbs (rather skinny). He is almost too tall for it as it is a major task to pull it up over his shoulders, but it is not loose once on. The size 6/8 is a little loose on him, though, so I'll keep him in the 4/6 for a few more months perhaps. After the suits are worn in the water once or twice, they do tend to loosen up a little and are a bit easier to get on.
If your child is slim to average, these will probably fit better than a child who is fuller.
Can't beat the price. Great little suit!
Got two of these one for my 5 and one for my 7 year old last spring. Worked great. They are now 6 and almost 8, and still fit great. Keept them warm at the lake. I am going to get another one for my 3 year old. I got the 6-8 size for the older two. I know I will get at least two seasons out of them. Kids grow so fast. Don't know what one to get for my 3 year old the 3-4 or the 4-6. i know its a wet suit and needs to fit tight, but I want it to last. Aww forget it I'll get the 3-4 now and the 4-6 latter at this price you cant go wrong. Thanks Divers Supply

Excellent quality to price ratio
The size was as published and so was the quality. Price including shipping to Argentina (almost as much as the suit) was very convenient when compared to a locally supplied chinese suit. Daughter and father happy.
good suit great price
really happy with these suits. I bought 2 for my kids and they are made really well for the price. sizes seemed accurate although my son at close to 50lbs will probably need the next size up next year. My daughter will get 2 years out of it. they were excited to get them and have been out snorkeling with me everytime and are happy to be getting in the water earlier than ever this year.
This suit is very well-constructed. Skin seal (rubber) for the neck. Sizing chart is accurate. Suit fits my 8 yr.-old son well, who is avg. height but very skinny. (Sea Elite has nice range of kids' sizes: other wetsuit mfrs. have limited kids' sizes, so often either too small or too big, nothing in-btwn.)
Love this wet suit!
I ordered this for my son and it is a great product - quality materials, nice construction. He is a very small 5 year old and the 3-4 fits him perfectly. The measurements listed here were right on for determining proper sizing. My son swims every day and now he doesn't get chilly. Thanks for a great product at a wonderful price!
