One day last week, I went to Layline and talked to Mike about wetsuits. I ended up with a SuperWarm and hiking pads. I have not sailed with it yet, so no experience there. However, the suit appears to be very well made, and is extremely light. It will be interesting to see how warm I stay when it is 40 degrees outside! I am going to two regattas next month - one is on an inland lake, and I hear the water is cold this time of year. Can't wait to try the suit!
