  "Dress for Immersion" can mean
  Posted by: g2d on Oct-21-13 3:28 PM (EST)
 

dress for heat exhaustion.

Dress for short immersion and self-rescue, yes, that is possible. But if one dresses for prolonged immersion in cold water, there will be many days when one will be too damn hot to enjoy what one intended.

I agree with Pirate that I try not to get way out on cold winter water, preferring to be close enough to shore that I can get there in my drytop and wet suit shorts. I don't paddle unless the temperature is forecast to get above 50 degrees. But there were times in my youth when I started on mornings when the temperature was only 13 degrees.
