    i've never worn a 6/5/4, but a 5/4/3 should suffice for the delmarva waters.

    if you get a decent hooded 5/4/3 it will be more than enough. Thats even going back to some winters where the water spent some time in the upper 30's I've tried a 6 mm. and it just seems like more than you really need around here.

    I own An F Bomb 5/4/3 w/ hood and a Psyco 4/3 and a 3/2.
    I only where the Fbomb in water colder than 50 and I LIKE TO BE WARM.
    A GOOD 5/4/3 and a GOOD 3/2 are all you really need other than a shorty.

    It TOTALLY depends on the quality/fit/design of the suit! It sounds like you should go to a shop, talk to someone who knows wetsuits, and try a few of them on.
