I would definitely recommend rip curl 5mm lobster claws, I had the 5mm gloves first and hated them. Too much rubber around your fingertips and too many seams. They will keep you fingers toasty all winter long.
Hey guys, I'm just curious about something. I hear a lot about OíNeill, Rip Curl, and occasionally Billabong, but I rarely ever hear anything about Patagonia or Matuse, or even 9 plus from you guys on the east coast. I know Patagonia makes some good cold water suits, I'm just curious why I never really read their names being mentioned here like they are on the West Coast forums. Is it that they arenít good in cold water, not marketed that well, or nobody wants to give them a shot?
