I have been wearing my new HASU hooded 4/3mm for the last week now and it has been a pleasure.
Ever so flexible and fantastically warm. First surf was Saunton, no boots, no gloves just running off the heat of the suit. A few mushy ones at Putsborough tested the front entry with zero flushing, even after a couple of less than stylish dismounts. Woolacombe this morning was its crowning glory. First light, high tide, plenty of duckdiving and only wearing 4mm of neoprene in February....No worries!

So last week i picked up a new winter wetsuit. It's a hooded 4/3 from the new Hasu range from Nineplus.
It's mostly single lined apart from the bottom of the legs and feels very lightweight. Seams are liquid sealed and the torso and hood is lined with fleecy material. It's a chest zip entry, the neoprene is yamamoto feels lovely and supple.
It's supposed to be plenty warm enough for our winter (water around 8 celcius) but i must admit i wasn't entirely sure as i sauntered down to mid tide 2 ft windswell a few days ago, it felt thin and too easy to get on compared with my old xcel suit to believe id be warm.
