    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.

    Gloves arn't as important because the bastards either bust seams or wear holes on the fingertips by the end of the season anyways.

  5. 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?

    patagonia doesnt have tons of suppliers on the east coast. they make the best wetsuits in the world. they are top of the line. but expensive as hell

    I've had good experience with HOTLINE suits and boots. Not that easy to find though.

    if you know your size, Wetsuitwarehouse.com has some good suits, and supposedly great customer service.

    I just got a Hyperflex 4/3 flow and 5/3 booties, i haven't been able to use then yet, but I can't wait till wetsuit weather.

    Xcel Drylock Mittens. Less seams...less chance of holes. In 40deg water and less than 30deg air i can last probably 5hrs
