Phil's Thoughts: This is a really great 'tween suit. It's so light and flexible and also pretty damn warm. There's not any FSW that rubberized seal sealer, but the seams a glued and blind stitched. That makes for a lot of flexibility, but it also means you're going to get a fair amount of water coming in. This is a perfect suit for water down to 63 for me, but probably 65 for almost everyone else. When it gets windy or colder, I add a 1mm long sleeve top inderneath and I can easily get into the lower 60s and make it all the way until a Psycho 1 4/3 fits the bill.
And the thing is, I'll wear this instead of any spring suit, it's just so light and comfortable. And the chest zip is really a lot easier beause the neoprene is only 2mm. Much easier to get in and out of than a long sleeve chest zip for sure. I think this is the perfect SoCal summer suit from Santa Monic and South, hell even maybe as far north as Zuma in July and August.
