    3.2 all year?

    how late into the year do you think you could go with a 3.2mm wetsuit with boots and gloves?

    Once the water gets down to about 50 or so, it is time to hang up the 3-2 and grab the big boy suit. I usually last till about Christmas before I change over.

    Wore the 3-2 Tuesday afternoon, but the next few days look so cold, that it is 5-4 time from now until early April.

    yeah, that sh*t is retarded. if you're in a 3/2 now or pretty much the past month you're just lying.

    Once used a 3/2 in Delmarva until January first. It was the coldest I had been since I was 12 using crap dive suit remnants. It all depends on temp, but the year I used it into January was really warm and still by that point I felt like I was going to have a heart attack .

    Not true.. that swell in the beginning of the month, I wore my 3/2, boots, NO gloves.

    But now is definitely time to switch over.
