I know, I know. I am not trying to be "that guy" asking ridiculous questions about wetsuits, but after spending 10 years in San Diego, where my wetsuit routine is like clock work... Mid November, into a 4 mil. April, back into a 3 mil... Rest and repeat every year...

Now I live down on HHI. I am still in a 3 mil, about to go to a 4 mil as the water temps creep into the high 50s... I have read water temp tables that indicate HHI can drop into the 48-49 degree range in late January....

Mathematically speaking, this will require a 5 mil, hood and the whole shabang.... Any advice from Charleston/HHI/Tybee locals as to what they wrap up in mid-winter?

I mean, 49 is probably borderline 4 mil for some, but I tend to get cold and stay out long, so I am thinking its time to break the seal and invest in a 5 mil for the mid-late winter months...

Any advice on setups for the winter in SC?
