  1. Did you ever find out if they’re still in business or not? I’m looking for their 3-finger dive mitts and can’t find any info on them. It’s too bad, they made the best cold water gloves.

  2. Unfortunately Harveys is out of business. They were a long time manufacture of dive suits in the Pacific Northwest. Its really a pity. I had a buddy who went to their headquarters and was sized up for a custom wetsuit with an outer layer of tough material. Its an amazing suit. My first drysuit was a Harveys aquacapsule.

  3. My late stepson bought a Harvey’s suit Style PSSNT 282, size C/S and passed away before it was used. I have no idea what to do with it and since Harvey’s is no longer in business, can’t get any information that I can provide to sell it. Does anybody have any suggestions?? Thanks!!

      Father and Son team. Custom wetsuits. Expensive because of quality and they get Japanese foam which is more flexible. Long wait time since foam is shipped from Japan BUT Im fat and my custom 3 mil suit fits like butter. They make thicker mm too. Close to $ 1000 for my suit. But well worth it. Call them.
