3 X 2. Which up until this last fortnight hasn't been warranted. Water feels colder now. Few blokes are in 2mm steamers but I'm not sold on em as they're all the hassle of getting into long sleeves etc.

The long sleeve, short leg thingos seem built for QLD.

i don't like short legs/ long arm combos. my meniscus' starts clicking in the cold.

yeah i surfed today in my 2mm short arm steamer ... it keeps out about as much water as boardies. up until last week when it really shit itself it'd be fine for winter here.

where the 2mm is winning is its flexibility. apart from a bit of tightness around the neck, it's like wearing nothing. where it's losing is, in 5-6 years of wearing them, i'm yet to get 2 full winters out of 'em.

I am a convert to long arm short leg - all 2mm chest zip

Toyed with the short arm steamer thing- but really up here its the wind that chills not the water

ah, don't get me wrong 2mm is perfect for up here with whatever combo you go for ... it's finding a 2mm wettie with durability which is the challenge.

i can go and get a 2mm wettie for 300 odd clams right now. or buy a 3/2 steamer for not much more.

3/2 steamer is overkill, but it'd last me 4 or 5 winters with how i take care of them compared to 1.5 seasons i've had out my last two 2mm suits (oneil & bong).





by the way ... chest zips, FOR THE WIN!! best invention ever,

discuss.

So I tried on a large 2mm TripleX yesterday and was too small and the XXL too big - they didn't have an XL - $180 seems like a bargain and I reckon it would last two seasons - nice and stretchy but after that fail I might just harden the fcuk up and tough it out in my SS springy.

they all seem like they're gonna last forever when they're new. problem is the thin, stretchy material just doesn't hold the stitching for a long time.

i think it's a physics issue.

I'm on the third season of an Oneill Gooru 2mm long sleeve springy. But it's very tired now.

just for that.


my tomato vine is going full scale off the hook ever since i attached it to some lattice work i found in a mate's shed.

to think 3 months ago i was going to upend it and throw it out. now we got little bell tomatoes for days. gonna make a spaghetti sauce from scratch at some point with some organic extra virgin olive oil another friend makes himself and gave me a tester of.

i bozzed a mates e4 rip curl chest zip the other day. comfortable and stretchy etc but I was getting flushed in the front. I thought that was the supposed advantage - no flushing?

stick to my back zip for now.
