Which wetsuit is warmer

Post by Mini2 » Mon Jun 10, 2019 8:43 am

I was just thinking ,
I know blind stitched glued and taped is warmer than flat locked,
So I was thinking would a 3 mm blind stitched and glued be warmer than a 5 mm flat locked .
Just something I was thinking.
Thanks

My honest thought is depends on the manufacturer - I've had suits that are identical on paper from different companies and seen very different performance. I've grown to love the o'neill stuff - super stretchy and the heat pads make a huge difference - worth the extra cost IMHO.
