If it gets real cold, thermals will improve both suits. Stafford at Adventure Kite has some killer deals on Neil Pryde ones!

Did they charge much for shipping?

Re: wet or dry?

I just bought some small stuff - vest, thermal fleece, etc. Shipping is pretty cheap and free if over $40. Great find. All the good suits in medium are gone but anyone looking for a large will be in luck. Lots of stuff like beanies, hoods, fleeces, etc. pretty well discounted - stuff that usually isn't worth buying but works really well a couple times a year.

Was a good deal on shipping. My hoods are pretty frazzled so I got a new one also.

This is an old thread. Though this vid is not new it has a really great discussion of this question. BTW - says neoprene suits stretch over time - even though Webster keeps saying they shrink. You got some splainin to do Webguy.....

Certainly some of it is the neoprene loosing elasticity. I think for us Southerners, baking them in the car is a culprit.
