3/2 wet suit this weekend, can I make it?
Can I survive in a 3/2 this weekend in OCMD? Anyone ever tried it?
I'm only planning to be out for an hour at the most

3/2 boots and gloves?..... Can be done. 45mins probably. If you haven't been in the water for a long time. It's probably worth it. No boots and gloves probably 10 mins and not worth it.

Big variation in quality of a 3/2. If it's a good 3/2 with taped seams and you have boots and gloves, I think you could definitely do it

If it's all you have then I would try it....but be prepared to be very cold very quickly...

my buddy is still in a 3/2 but he has an extra layer if you know what I mean...

+1 with having a solid suit, sealed, taped etc etc. As long as the air temps are reasonable and the wind isn't howling, you've got it. I'd give it a go if I didn't have something warmer.

With a heated wetsuit vest, you'd be good til your batteries ran out. Especially one of the better models! www.heatedwetsuitreviews.com has some info on them. I'm super stoked on mine.
