    Agreed

    In fact, the 7 mil booties and 5 mil gloves should do you right even through January and February. That's what I have worn for years. I wear Rip Curl, too, and they have lasted me a long time.

    Since the beginning of March through early December does not include the coldest months you'd probably be better off with 5mm booties and 3mm 5 finger gloves (I like XCel)

    agreed..if you arent surfing january and february then 5 mil split toe booties will be warm enough for DE/MD and arent as clumsy.

    I agree. Plus I have 5mm and 7mm booties, and the 7's don't feel any clumsier to me.
