    I just went out yesterday and didn't need gloves; 4x3mm with 3mm booties.

I was out at the OCMD inlet yesterday and I didn't need gloves or booties.
    Double rolling....good point. I always single role but for thick gloves it makes sense. It is always a pain getting that second glove covered by the your sleeve in winter because of the thickness of 5 ml gloves. 3s and 2 and easy.

    you use a plastic bag. put the gloves on before the sleeves then put the bag on the glove slide it through the sleeve and bam you have a perfect seal.

    Did NJ yesterday without gloves and it wasn't preferable, but it was doable. Boots are definitely still required.

    I was out yesterday in North Mommouth NJ for 2+ hours with 2mm 3/4 finger-length webbed paddle gloves, a 3/2 full suit and boots. Hands were a little cold but definately doable.

    My body and feet were so warm that my hands managed not to become frozen. I'm going to wait until the air/water are around 70/60F to use my 3/2 again.

    and the story gets even better...after using my gloves and booties on saturday (for the first time) i must have left them on the ground near the car while getting out of my wetsuit and drove off without picking them up. so yesterday, i went out with NO gloves or booties, and while it was cold (not so bad for hands, but feet started to hurt) i managed to last an hour before bailing. if anyone happened to pick up my gloves and booties off of ocean avenue in avon on saturday, i'll promise you a lifetime of good karma if you let me know.

    usually i only feel like an idiot in the water, but after doing something that dumb, i've felt for an idiot for a couple of days now.
