I agree with Chris -- a custom suit is the way to go.

I've been using JMJ's Predator (skin-in, attached hood) suit for about three years and it's the warmest suit I've ever used. Sometimes I even get a little hot on surface swims! After about 300+ dives it's finally giving up the ghost so I'll be ordering a new one in the next few months.

I had one incident where I got rolled on some rocks at night and tore up the suit -- I took it back to JMJ in Torrance and they did a great repair job for little cost in a couple of days.

The skin-in material holds up longer if you soap it up before you put it on and dry it out of the sun.
