Right now I have a 5/4/3 hyperflex and a cheap xcel 3/2 infiniti backzip. I'm looking at the 3/2 xcel drylock when it comes up on whiskey and thinking that it's warmer than other 3/2s. If I get the drylock, I'm hoping that I can extend wearing the 3/2 in high 40-50 deg temps but I wasn't sure. Does anyone else have a 3/2 drylock and how cold can they go with it?
I don't have a 4/3 and I guess that would be an option. I just feel that the drylock 3/2 would get into the 4/3 range anyway.
the 3/2 drylock should serve well into the 50s, but going into the 40s i dont think you would be able to handle it. the suit is warmer than other 3/2s but there is a point when its too cold to use.
it all depends on you, of course. everyone is different and more tolerant of temperatures

hahahaaha solid man. Sounding like the ripcurl rep right here. Yea but you could probably use that drylock down to water around 50, so long as its warm and sunny out also. Probably not gonna be able to stay out for hours either.
