Hey,
I'm wearing a 4/3 wetsuit with a 1-2 mill shirt underneath. I have not found
it cold out, I've only been out when it is sunny. I find that it makes a big difference
in how warm you can stay. I've been in the water a couple times after wipeouts and
it definitely is cold when you are fully immersed. I also wear 4mm boots, 4mm gloves and
a full hat, which is a must in my book. The scuba shop off Lauzon in Windsor has all
the stuff and for $150 you can get hat, boots and gloves.

See you on the water

wal-mart, at least the giagantic one in sarnia, has neo gloves, prolly 2mm ish, very comfy and well fitting, for $20. i have 5mm gloves from the scuba shop and they suck cause your fingers get cold after a bit anyways, and they are so thick that you can't grip the bar for a long time.

i would go and get the walmart gloves for the flexibility (and price), especially now that it is only going to get warmer.

they were called paddling gloves in the sporting department by the fishing and canoeing stuff.

its getting warm outside too so honestly i wouldn't get anything but boots cause you won't use the hood/gloves till november anyways
