I'm heading to Dahab, Egypt in March for a month of freedive training which I am pretty stoked about. The water there during that time is actually not that warm (70F / 21C). So, I'll need to bring a 5mm and I'm looking for recommendations on the warmest custom suits out there. Actually, they don't really HAVE to be custom, I guess. I wear a large and my proportions are pretty standard so I can fit well into many off-the-rack suits. The suit would be for freediving only and would not be used for spearfishing since I have plenty of those suits. So, if the suit is a little delicate, I won't have to worry about banging around on reefs or boats too much. If I'm going to be spending all that money for this trip, I really want to get the best wetsuit I can. Another reason I really want a good suit is because I tend to run colder than almost anyone else I dive with. Any recommendations?
