    I wear a 7mm wet suit with gloves boots and hood. I have been out in as cold as 35 degree air, and as cold as 34 degree water. If it gets below about 45 it better be sunny out or it gets a little cool. My friend and me were swimming in 44 degree water for a good half hour in this setup.

    The day I put my fzr away in october in grand bend @ 4* C out. Super chilly and the water was crazy. The adrenaline kicks in and it didn't even feel the cold. Lake ontario was 6*C on my last local ride. That was amateur gear. Sweater, wet suit, sweater, gloves hat pfd.

    I can't imagine the super cold being enjoyable for more than 30 minutes or so but 7mm would be best route to go while still keeping "some" mobility/agility.
