Hi
I have a Rooster race skin for Autumn or second day of an open after wearing the thermaflex on day one.
You do need over shorts with it and it does not hold hiking pads.

Personally I would look outside of the dinghy business for wetsuits, that Zhik brand is ludicrously overpriced which would be fine if it were offering a superior product, but...

I am after a long john type wetsuit - full legs / body but no arms. My current 1mm Rooster one is worn out and is not really warm enough for the winter having shivered through last winter wearing it.

I am tempted by the Zhik Superwarm X skiff suit which is 2mm / 3mm and having used their wetsuit trousers all summer I like the fit and they have taken the abuse well.

Anyone else recommend a longjohn in 2mm / 3mm please? Thanks
