The suit that has worked the best for me so far has been this years women's
5/4 Hotline with an attached hood. I go in through the neck-no big zippers
to restrict movement. It's a heavy duty surf suit, but turns out to be
more flexible and warmer than the 3 Oneil 4/3 windskins that I used in the
past. The built in hood is a key heating device and I also use booties. I
sail and surf in the open ocean North of San Fran so I need the warmest.
When I go sailing on a particularly cool day I don't stop sailing. Not
much of a socialite on the water I guess...can't afford to stop being
active or else I get too cold. For underneath the suit I have a
polypropylene bodysuit used for diving. You can get them in dive shops.
Good luck in your search, Annie
