I am considering picking up a bare exowear full suit (on sale 25% of on the Bare web site). Realizing these things are pretty subjective, if I layer it under my Henderson Thermaxx 3mm full suit, could I expect that to be as warm as a 5mm full suit? How thick are these exowear suits? Do I need much slack in the outer layers.

I can't answer directly, since I'm not familiar with exoware, however, I have layered up wetsuits for warmth. For example, wearing 3mm wet-suit shorts plus a hooded best, under a 5mm, to approximate a 7mm wet-suit.

If the the thickness of the wetsuit or rash-guard is not advertised, it's probably equivalent to a 1mm.
