Unless you have disposable income 3 mil boots, 3 mil gloves and even a 3/2 suit are pointless in Jersey. I either wear boots and/or gloves or I don't.
3 mil just seems like an unnecessary accessory.
Even the 3/2 is basically a waste. I go 4/3 to a 2 mil SS/Full spring suit.
I have both a 4/3 and a 3/2 and I pick the 3/2 over the 4/3 anyday. If you have a nice one it can be used in a wider range of temps then the 4/3, plus its much more comfortable. Probably my most used suit.
I have 3 mil boots too that I use but they are probably not needed, they were the first boots I got and I would get more use out of 5 mils for sure. 3 mil boots are cheap though, they were only like $25 which is worth it in my opinion.
It was nice to lose the gloves yesterday, I was perfect in the 3/2 with the 3 mil boots. I'm glad it was an ugly, rainy evening which led to a nice fun little jetty all to myself for 2 hours.
i just wear my black spiderman suit. If i am cold I just shoot some web into your moms face, that always helps. Seriously though, noone cares when you wear your 3/2. Wearing a rash guard under a 3/2 vs a 4/3? Come on dude, should I stroke it with my left hand or my right?
i'll be in my 3/2, and boots with no gloves tomorrow for sure. i've used my 3/2 a couple times already, and last time i went out which was almost two weeks ago i felt like i could lose the gloves, but i didn't. the ocean is in the upper 50s now so i can do without tomorrow morning. especially with warm air temperatures, and minimal wind no problem. i'm hoping to lose the boots soon too, but my toes start getting charlie horses. i've gotten my toes coming out of place in 67 degree water, but easily being able to trunk it. hoping to be able to trunk it in two weeks.
