    double suiting is too hardcore my friend did it last year around dead winter he had so much trouble moving and it wore him out so much quicker

    I go out with a 4/3 psycho with 3mm booties 3mm gloves 3mm hood I can last for 3 hours until my toes starts to go numb I have 5mm booties but i just dont like the feel of them so i stick with my 3mm ninja booties(by far the best one ive tried) I only wished they made them thicker, but when the air temp dips to like 30 degrees or below my time in the water gets cut down to an hour and a half

    Take it from me, all you need is a 4/3, you can rock it all year long in VB. I've lived in VB my whole life, never have I even thought about buying a 5/4, you just don't need that much rubber down here. And as for a 3/2, you could get one, but its really not nessicary. Just get a suit with a detachable collar, so when the water is warm you can just take the collar off, and let some water into your suit every now and then.

    If you only want 1 suit a 4/3 is the way to go. It will get you though anything VB will have to offer.

    That sounds like a fine idea.

    At max you need a 4/3. Jerz, you need a 5/4. Nova Scotia, you need a 654.

    You think its possible to get by with a 3/2 and some 3mm booties? Just got here from Texas where the temp is only in the low 60s and I dont feel like buying a bigger wetsuit. I can handle being a bit cold, I just wanna know that I'll survive to do it again.
