I hit the snow yesterday for what was likely the last time of the season.

Solo slushfest. It was my first time snowkiting in a pfd.

Then I got skunked on the water.

Today might work for the twofer.

Henry and I hit Waukegan yesterday for a bit in the evening winds were marginal and eventually fell off. I do have to say the water was quite refreshing, enjoyable even haha. With the Zealot, f bomb 7mm booties there was no need for the heavy gloves the mystic dries worked perfectly I was actually hot until I got out then I used my Zealot hoodie.

Polo..

Ya I think they are 2 mil. I got them from Bob and they are super thin but I was really warm and we didn't have any sun. I had brought some f bomb 5 mils but never used them they are thick as hell. I think the whole combo worked together to help keep my hands warm.

Ya those are great gloves! One thing you need to remember is when you put them on there is an inner seal pull down the Velcro strap towards your finger exposing the seal. Make sure the seal is flat and pulled up all the way. Your wetsuit now overlaps this seal then last you pull the Velcro over that and tighten this ensures a great seal. Tell you what they are thin enough to allow you to rig your gear never having to remove them. :)
