    Wetsuit- which one?

    I know there are a lot of different ones out there. I am on long island and would like to ride through thanksgiving weekend. What I want is the warmest wetsuit without having to get a dry suit. Who makes the best one and with the material for what I want? All help is appreciated!

    I have an Ocean Tec 2 piece (full legs to tank and knee length to full sleeves), plus boots and finger tip exposed gloves. I've been on the water on 50 degree days. That doesn't sound bad, till you're doing 40mph+ without a face mask. Plenty warm enough for the ride, it'll handle spray and waves over the front where I won't even feel uncomfortable. I'm sure if I hit the water, even below 40 degree water...I'd survive.

    $100 for the suit (on sale)
    $30 for the boots
    $15 for the gloves

    Why is a dry suit out of the question?

    That hood plus a sno-mobiler's mask sounds like just the ticket for me...even if I get a dry suit.

    The only reason I would not go with a dry suit is because when the weather warms up a bit but it is still too cold to ride without some kind of suit, a dry suit would be too warm. Please correct me if I am wrong as I know nothing about this stuff.

    a drysuit is as warm as the layers you were underneath it

    Any recomendations on which suit to buy? I also think I heard that they were much more pricey than a wetsuit. Is this true? and if so about how much more?

    Go with the Slippery Matrix suit. Comes in 3mm and short sleeved . You can the put on the top half with the long sleeves giving you the extra 3mm with the insulation between the 2 parts being formed. The glide skin chest and back panels help to reduce wind cooling and also to retain body heat under. Also the matrix gloves are the warmest in the market from my personal opinion. These suits are designed by jetskiers for jetskiers.....

    SLIPPERY - the choice of serious jetskiers.
