I am going to get a wetsuit and i am wondering what is better a one or two piece. I like one piece with built in hoods but i want a warm suit so if 2 piece is warmer i wouldnt think about getting a one peice. I have troubles staying warm so whats warmer?
I don't think it matters if it's one piece or two the main thing is that it fits properly. I wear a one piece with a hooded vest under it in the winter when the water is colder. The hooded vest makes a big difference with my full suit because, in addition to the hood, my one piece has a little to much room in the back allowing cold water to slosh around without the vest. A two piece may be more versatile, especially if the bottoms are a farmer John style, in that you could wear one of the pieces in warmer water instead of needing a whole different suit.:)

By the way. Forgot to mention, I hate wearing a hood. I only do it if there's a danger of hypothermia for the number hours I plan to be in the water.:(
