What's the best wetsuit top out there? I need to add this to my x-mas list. I looked briefly at them in one store this year and remember one or two having a material that better blocks the wind on the entire body part of the top. That'd be best. I wear one of these a good part of the time and mine is wearing out.

I have a Jet Pilot Apex. I like it. Fits good and does a good job of keeping out the water.

Thanks, I'll take a look at that one. So far this one I like and seems to have gotten good reviews, 2mm Billabong FOIL Jacket:

I wear one nearly all year -- I just hate being cold

I favor this type, with the glideskin on it.. its windproof also... so you have more warmth with less bulk. Also make sure it doesnt have a zipper in the back -- I have been burned buying a top with a zipper in the back that I didnt realize was there, and it isnt necessary and is annoying when you are driving the boat...

+1 for the glideskin. I just got a Jet Pilot F-35 and it works really well at keeping the wind off. I'm still riding in boardshorts and F-35 top here in Charlotte, NC.
