    That's what I'm wearing for the very cold water, more or less (sort of!). I use a BZ400 undersuit and a FE Thermocline T-shirt underneath it (with socks and a pair of pants obviously!). I found that...

    2 days is better than "x days until you fail to check out of the hotel or pay the bill". Also, to be fair, Indonesia is a big place and some places I've dived there are miles from any inhabited...

    If all else fails, drop me a line when I'm free. We often have people up for fun dives and failing that, I'm about! Would need to be a Sunday for me though.
