    7 mm excel dry lock

    http://www.wetsuitwearhouse.com/page/WW/ABV79829

    Bought the 7 mm mits too, along with the XCEL HAWAII 6/5 INFINITI X-ZIP 2 HOODED WETSUIT - MEN'S XLT. Needless to say I am very toasty in the lineup. Prices are dropping on the suit.

    another +1 on the 7mm drylock. 7mm boots and mits, 5/4 hooded drylock suit and cold is no longer an issue...in nj at least...

    My feet always used to get cold fast, then I got my Xcel 7 mm Drylock, these booties are extremely warm and of high quality.

    I believe it was the same price for 5mm and 7mm booties. Def a no-brainer to go thicker, especially if you plan on surfing straight through the winter.

    Damn everyone has the drylocks. Anyone try the 7mm Rip Curl Flashbombs?

    i have the xcel 5mm and they keep me warm for about 2-3 hours of being in the water. after that me feet get a little cold but it's not too bad.

    also how do you guys clean the insides of your boots/dry them? i fill up the foot with water and shake it around but i feel like i could be ruining the material by doing that. to dry it i usually just roll down the ankle and leave it on its side

    Billabong sg5 5mm and 7 mm. They are warm but they work by having some trapped water in them and warming up. Never been cold. Would have liked to use the dry lock booties but they don't sell em big enough for my big feet!

    For me 7 mm Xcel roundtoes were the warmest bootie ever. Used them for years. You NEVER get cold feet. Then the past few winters I have used the 5mm drylock split toes. They feel better to me surfing..more control and board feel comes through. That's the benefit at least for me. The downside is once the water gets below 45 you only get about two hours of reasonably comfortable feet. The past few Delmarva winters, the 5 mils have been fine.
