Gareth Dyer says:

This. This is good video.

Lee Rigby says:

5mm full length in Gozo all year round… in the summer I drop to a 2.5mm shorty and in the winter I add gloves and hood. Thinking about getting a semi for Dec-Feb next year as it’s a bit cold at times.

Splankey says:

Because I don’t feel the cold that much, I personally use a 3mm suit when I’m diving in the Mediterranean and my 7.5mm semi dry for the UK

John McGuinness says:

Im looking at getting a 7mm suit. I dive in melbourne Australia, temperate water

Kimon Froussios says:

I’ve used a 7mm with built-in inner vest down to 6-8C in a quarry in the south of England. Not pleasant and not really viable beyond 10-15mins. Just good enough for a quick drill.
I’ve used the same 7mm in 21C mediterranean waters and found it very cozy and nice.
In 16C (summer south England coast or early spring mediterranean sea) it works well enough, after the initial chill of entering the water.

Zachariah Pohopin says:

Love your videos, but for my fellow morons who use Fahrenheit we would appreciate it if you would also put in text what that temp is in fahrenheit. thanks

Abd Elrahman Gad says:

I use a 5 mm in that time of the year in dahab Egypt

GlamazonBarbie says:

I dive in Monterey, CA and the surrounding area. I have the SolAfx wetsuit. 8mm at the core and 7mm at the extremities. I was in the ocean last Sunday for 6 hours and was very comfy, warm, and feeling confident.

joshua smith says:

I use a 3mm when I dive. That being said, I don’t dive when it’s cold out.

flechman63 says:

Diving in the Persian Gulf in Oct I was using a 7mm but could of gone with a 5mm

Anders H. Andersen says:

You are missing info about how wetsuits looses insulation and buoyancy at dept

dharmapunk5 says:

I dive in BC Canada, and I’m relatively hearty. I have a full 7mm suit, and a 7mm shorty I wear over it with an incorporated hood. I have 7mm mits, and boots. I took the colder months of winter off, but have been back in the water since the beginning of March, and my set up has served me well so far. Plan to do a dry suit certification and advanced open water cert this summer. Happy Diving mates!

Bruce Wilbur says:

I dive New England in the spring, summer and fall. 7mm with a 2mm/5 hooded vest works for me down to 46F 8C.

theurbanshark says:

7mm suits aren’t too bad I almost always dive with one

Chaos Theory says:

And the answer is to always use a dry suit so you can put on the clothes you need.

Bogy 1 Kinoby says:

I’ve used 2mm in 11 degrees Celsius before without a hood, it was only a snorkel for 30 mins but still

Philippe Iskander says:

I dive at the Red Sea, summer or winter I just use a synthetic T-shirt 🙂
