    unless the water's super chilly, i refuse to put on a wetsuit after school lets out, so i'd go w/ the 1.5mil jacket. in fact, i wear one frequently in the summer during early AM dawn patrols or late evening sessions.
    if the water's really cold enough that i need a suit (think early-mid june), i'm just gonna throw on my short-sleeve full & be done w/ it.

    I bought a 1.5mm top long-sleave (its only 1.5 mm in the chest/back...sleeves are just your thin rashguard material) for last summer and I was a little chilled/cold in morning sessions I was out in late July/early August in OCMD. Its perfect for when the sun is out after like 10am, but I wasn't warm enough for sessions before 9am a few times when it was breezy. I survived but I prefer to be a little warmer, particularly when first waking up in the morning..

    If your a wimp like me, you might want to step it up a notch just to be comfortable. You can get an inexpensive shorty spring suit for under $100 and they are quick to get in and out of. Not like wrestling in and out of a 6mm or 5/4 winter suit like most of us are doing at the moment!

    I always thought the standard spingy was super fruity so i go with the wetsuit top/jacket.
