winter, in 4' of water, near shore, December with 50 degree air temp (water was much colder), and though I didn't have a wetsuit on, I was fortunate enough to have dressed in all wicking fabrics (3 layers). Had I been in deeper water, I most likely would have been in DEEP trouble.(I purchased much better attire after this day.)
One never knows what will happen as you can't always see what's under you in the water.
Better to be safe than depoloyed into very cold water.
Live to paddle another day.
Paddle safe.
