    I would not recommend an Xcel, I dropped $400 on a 3/2 drylock, expecting the best on the market, sure its flexible and light and warm, but the seams on the knees are already separating after a few months, thats unacceptable.

    Dude, send the suit back to Excel with a courteous letter and see what they do for you. In my experience, they back up their suits really well.

    They are selling boots and gloves out of the FCD shop if you can't find them locally. Here's the link:

    Just go to a GOOD surf shop and try a bunch of suits, boots, and gloves on. 5-mil boots should get you through the winter in South Jersey. Good 3-mil gloves should also get you through. (I recommend Xcel Drylock boots/gloves).

    As for what kind of suit to get, if you are only getting one suit and want the most versatility for NJ, I would recommend the XCEL 4/3 Hooded Drylock. I used it through the winter last year in north NJ. You can also wear it in the transitional months and just flip down the hood.

    If you are on a tight budget, the O'Neill Mutant 4/3 might be worth a look because you can convert it into a hooded suit for cold days and a regular neck for warmer days.

    I dont know if O'neill makes these suits anymore, but I picked up a 5/4 Oneill Mutant a few years back and found that is a great winter suit, but can also be used as a transition suit to the 3/2 during the spring months b/c the hood detaches. Im going on my 4th winter with it.
