I have a Mystic star 3/2 which I use in spring/autumn.
However I get too cold in it in Winter and usually put another 2mm top on top but it's not great.
Looking at getting a better Mystic such as the Majestic, just wondering whether 4/3 would be enough (considering the higher quality) or should I go 5/3 (not too restrictive?) ? I tend to get quite cold with my thin physique.
I have a 4/3 Ion wetsuit that I use all winter on the central coast which is a comparable climate. This last weekend which I consider pretty cold I was warm in it. I bought a wetsuit hood (the kind that connects under the chest zip flap) which kept me insanely warm and probably wouldnt get used on anything but the coldest days. For $50 or whatever it was i think its great value. I used to only ride in a Xcel infiniti 3/2 which was comparable to the ion. It was a much higher quality wetsuit though with sealed seams and sealed at wrists and ankles.
Thanks It was pretty cold last weekend which is what prompted me to think about getting a thicker suit...
I guess a quality 4/3 will do even though the extra 5 would be nice?!
I have a thermal rashie which I used under my wetsuit on the colder days, it does help.
Maybe go the 4/3 and then put the rashie underneath when it's super cold?
Colder than that get a Drysuit.. kite in all conditions, all day..
TheSquirrel is taking the piss because... where the hell are you lot from?
Sydney in winter is 3/2 steamer conditions.
If you are cold... your steamer is of low quality or old and has had its day.
I have a 5/4.... for winter in Ireland.
