Scroll down for your smooth skin version.

They've been talking about this suit since December on the eastern us forum of iwindsurf. So far anyone that has actually bought the suit has favorable reviews.

This guy has blogged about the suit a bit. He first tried his own homegrown version (scroll down to December 14th post then read up) and the results were good enough he actually bought the suit.

Just wait until they realize the efficiency of routing those tubes to the other orifice spewing hot air!

Hi
I came across this thread when tracking back traffic on my website. Thank you very much for starting this thread and your interest in my cold hand solution is much appreciated.
Although I have solved the cold hand problem in the 0° to 10°C range the point has largely been crowded out by catheter and April fool jokes.
To suddenly come across a thread like this which is mostly open minded and performance focused is very rewarding for me, thank you.
As my wetsuit is so odd looking my pioneer customers in this first year truly are special personalities. The gamble they took has been rewarded with a lot of great winter surfing and no cold hands.
Thank you once again for your interest in my solution.

Although I haven't had a chance to check out the product under discussion, I just want to point out that keeping hands warm is not only a comfort issue, it is also, and more importantly, a SAFETY issue.

Don't forget that a significant number of emergency situations may require FAST responses that depend upon EXCELLENT finger/hand utilization.

Many people, myself included, kite when their fingers are numb from cold. This significantly increases the danger inherent in any session because of decreased ability to perform various safety related actions, including things like being able to quickly:
.. Activate quick releases.
.. Use a knife.
..Untangle stuff.
..Etc.
