    Just wanted to see if any of you could point me in the right direction, I currently have a pair of Ripcurl 5mm F-Bomb gloves, but they seem so big and bulky that i hate wearing them. I've been looking around for a 5mm glove that would be less restrictive, and less bulky. If anyone has any feedback, i would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

    Have you considered switching to a 5 or 7 mm single-fingered mitten? You just rotate the covering to an uncovered finger when needed.

    http://www.oregonsurfshop.com. I've used this site for all of my wetsuits except for my very first one. These guys are very friendly, helpful, and will answer your questions. Plus they do not apply sales tax and there is free shipping. Always have great deals as well. Gonna be getting a 3/2 Xcel Infiniti comp for Xmas. Xcell is the best bang for the buck in my opinion

    I've been wearing a 4/3 Body Glove Fusion back zip that is in its 5th season and its served me well but it has been starting to leak, has a lot of ware-and-tare and is just getting old so I have been looking through some websites for new suits. I am going to stick out the rest of winter with the Fusion but I am looking to upgrade. I've been looking a lot at O'neil wetsuits and wanted some peoples opinions on them. I have narrowed it down to the O'neil Mutant 4/3 chest zip with the detachable hood or the O'neil Psycho 1 back zip. Has anyone had either of these suits that they could give me their opinions on? Also I was wondering what people's takes on back zip vs chest zip were? I know the chest zip allows for a lot more flexibility and not as much water getting in the suit but I have also heard that they are a pain in the a$$ to get on and off. Thanks for the help.

    My Oneill front zip 6 mil is great actually first front zip I've owned so e my old 6 mil was 5 years old and the suite has an inside seam you step into. I never get cold in the winter. Don't know brand offhand but booties are equally important got Oneill booties too changed from excel 7 mil and the Oneill booties are way better other booties I had issues with them ripping as I pulled them on ( the tab in the back). Stay warm we got good cycle of waves coming!
