I'm looking to add some warmth under my O'Three neoprene suit, but not sure what to go for that won't require me to add too much lead.
Currently I use Fourth Element Xerotherm with a variety of base layers underneath according to the water temperature. I'm usually OK with this, but did get cold on my recent trip to Scapa (10-12 degrees), which made me start looking for something more.
I previously owned a full set of Fourth Element Arctics, but sold them as (with the full suit at least) I wasn't comfortable diving the weight required.
I have three options in mind and wondered what people thought:
- FE Arctic top (only)
- O'Three PPB Top (only)
- Waterproof 3D Mesh Vest
The alternative would seem to be boosting my base layers further, e.g. merino base and mid-layer below the Xerotherms.
