Right now is the awkward stage for water temps.. To wear a hood? Or not wear a good? I just checked the water temps and it said ocmd was 66 and cape may was 64 so maybe the warm water is on the way...
i felt great in a 3/2 all weekend with boots/gloves its that time to ditch winter wetsuits and wear 3/2 for now on.
I was wondering what Holiday Inn would say if I checked in and asked for the "wet suite"??
Went out this weekend in my 3/2 with boots and gloves. I was pretty warm but I tried taking my gloves off and quickly remembered why I brought them. The water was around 51F with air around 68F when I was out.

I mentioned on another similiar post...it all depends on the quality and style of your 3/2. Fairly new lightly worn wetsuip with taped and sealed seams you'll be fine down close to to 52-55 degree water temp (about where its at now in the mid-Atlantic)....a lower end 3/2 suit with flatlock seams, back zipper that lets cold water flush down your back....you'll freeze in anything below 60-62 degree water temp. Figure out the condition and quality of your 3/2 suit and then make the assessment.
