Looking for a long sleeve top now that weather is getting cooler. Wondering what companies made the best products. Also wondering if anyone makes a long sleeve shorty wetsuit.

Thanks
Bill

Look at the Xcel Infiniti S/S 2mm. It comes in a long sleeve shorty. It has taped seams and a ridiculous amount of stretch for flexibility and comfort. I use that suit at the beginning of may in Canada most of the time.

I have the Rip Curl and I also have the F22 Jet Pilot. The RipCurl is perfect for right now since it is only 1.5 mm. The Jet Pilot is 2mm and will be great in about a month. Either one of them is great!!!

I have the jetpilot and the seal skin is nice but makes it a pain to get on and off since its sticks to your skin. You have to roll it up pretty good to get it on without help.

i forgot to mention that xcel makes tops as well, and all of their stuff has a life time warranty on stitching

dude it is seriously one of the warmest things i have ever worn. the 4/3 with the same construction is basically a dry suit. the xcel wetsuits, in my mind, are the best out there. they tend to be less expensive too

what about shorts? torso stays bueno in my JP 3/2. (maybe its 2/2. )But my nads get chilly on the first dip. I know JP makes the lined shorts, but I was looking for something separate. UnderArmour isn't thick enough I don't think and I'd rather not rock some freaky 1984 neon barefoot shorts or the like. how do ya keep 'em warm?

i know that there are companies that make them, but i think they are kind of fading out, most people are using a long sleeve spring suit i think.
