Wow. I finally got to try out the long sleeve top with short legs Blacktec.
Really impressive. No mobility issues at all, but the shocker (or lack thereof!) was getting into some pretty cold spring water and being fully warm. And this coming from a certified temperature wuss who would normally be wearing a drysuit!
This is a game-changer for wetsuits. It's hard to believe it could be so warm, but it almost acts like a (lightly) insulated drysuit because it lets in so little water. I wouldn't try it right after ice-out, I guess, but I was flat out amazed.
And I am optimistic I just found my solution for those occasional cold-as-hell tournament rounds around these parts.
Also, thanks @waterskigirl
for hooking me up with one! I'll be ordering a second one soon.
