    Yikes, does 3 mm cut it for anyone at 68? I’m a 210 pound guy and I’m wearing 7 mm of neoprene at 68.

    Incredible. In Japan at 68 I’m the only person diving wet. Below 60, they won’t let you join in a wetsuit, drysuits only. Worried you’re going to die from hypothermia. The world is a diverse place.

    Well I have done 68 w hood and without. I get chilled without but with a hood i'm fine. It is a Deep6 suit after all, it seals well so not alot of water intrusion.

    Cold tolerance is such an individual thing, but a lot of folks would dive a3mm in 68 water, depends on SI and ambient temp, can you warm up in between dives?

    I am routinely doing 61 deg dives, can do them in a 5mm on warmer Days, but prefer a 7mm on colder days.

    I totally thought you guys were talking about age and I was going to commend a 68 year old for wrestling with a 7mm wetsuit.

    I think I'll just go back to my conversation with my whiskey.

    I just received my 3mm Deep6 wet suit. It has not been in the water, but I am impressed with it's construction and comfort level at least in my living room. The pockets are very conveniently located.
