Q:Is their examples or estimate recommending material thickness for the water temperature?Asked on 9/21/2014 by Pete from Sacramento,ca
A:It is very difficult to try and recommend a material thickness for a wetsuit. So many factors play a roll. If you are in the water a lot, the air temp and wind velocity, and your own "cold tolerance". As an anecdote I wore the .5 mm jacket wake surfing the last 2 weeks with the air temp in the high 60's and the water temp in the mid 60's. On a sunny day with little wind it was quite adequate and I opened the zipper to vent in between runs. On a cloudy and windy day I could have used a thicker layer. During immersions, jumping in to start and falling, it was fine but the wind and lack of infrared on the cloudy day...
I bought this jacket to avoid the "strangulation" feel of a neck collar understanding that more water would flow through the top. Using a PFD decreased the volume of the body of the jacket and I really didn't feel like a lot of water came in through the top at the zipper when I jumped or fell in.
Hope this helps,
