I was too hot on a sunny day with air temp in the low teens when wearing this with the 4/3 thermal back zip wettie.

What an inconvenience.

Best bit of cold water gear you will ever buy

This is literally the best bit of cold water surf gear you will ever buy.

Warm and comfy

I didn't read the description properly - this is not a wetsuit vest, its a thermal / fleecy vest. Initially disappointed, but it actually added a lot of warmth to my wettie - so full points for warmth.
I found the neck gusset to be a little bit short for my wetsuit collar length, particularly at the back where it doesn't quite overlap.
Gotta shout out to Needs for their postage service - its outstanding.
I'm in Tassie. Got cold in the surf Sunday, ordered this Monday lunchtime, and was surfing in it on Wednesday.

Great bit of cold water kit

Worn under a steamer, this was my only extra protection in 11-12deg C water. No head freeze and great wind protection. Smart design collar detail sheds water over your back keeping the wetsuit dryer during duckdives. Very good value and easy to wear.
