    Booties?

    Just wondering, when you wear booties do you put the top part (that goes over the ankle and low shin) underneath the wetsuit leg or over it? Same with gloves.

    put gloves and booties underneath the suit. You can go over, but your likely to get more water flushing through.

    i usually just pull them over, cause it takes too long to work them under your sleeves and stuff

    I've heard that if you put your gloves on before you put your arms through the sleeves of your suit, and put plastic bags over your gloves, that you can just slide your hands into the sleeves, gloves and all. Then the gloves will be nice and flush without any of the forementioned struggling. Also, if you have any thin black dress socks that you don't use anymore, you can put those on before you put your boots on, and then your feet will slide in and out with ease.
