  regardless of location
  Posted by: suzanneh on Mar-04-13 9:18 AM (EST)

Air temp 85 water 60-65F

Regardless of location at those temps, I would be very happy to wear a pair of surfskin shorts or neo shorts, a long sleeved rash guard and Kokatat Knappster (short sleeve breathable semi dry top). What I would have handy to layer up would be:

fleece top
gore-tex paddling jacket or semi dry paddling jacket
gore-tex paddling pants
skull cap
windbloc hat

I have used a drysuit in those conditions in Maine over a hot 4th of July weekend, but only because I was testing out a prototype, not out of choice. It was Kokatat's lightweight Gore-Tex Paddling Suit It was quite comfortable and I did have one thin layer of capilene on underneath.

I don't like to wear wetsuits so a shorty wetsuit wouldn't make it on my list of choices.
