I've been pleased with O'Neill boots for my last few pairs. Gloves/mittens - they just all seem to get leaky pretty quick. Actually a big fan of the Rip Curl mittens I picked up this winter, we'll see how they fare next window with a full season's use.

The value of the forum: intelligent info from real-time experience.
Ergo, next purchase to be Rip Curl based on some of the insights here.
Nearly everything I have is Xcel. My 5/4 hoody is pretty toasty in January; no beefs. Howevah.... 4/3, which was like Linus blanket on my body so good in December, is now not even a year old & leaves my lower back feeling iced/cramped up big-time, even with my constant (heat-producing) paddling & riding, after only 40 mins in 50-degree-ish water. So, not too thrilled about that. Maybe mine is a defective suit, but hey it doesn't do the trick as advertised.
At these prices, there shouldn't be any defective suits. IMHO
Time to try another manufacturer. And nothing wrong with shopping 'round.
