With my Hammerhead 7mm beaver tail free dive suit I have been in the water for over three hours and not been cold.  I have gloves (can't tell you the name)and 5MM ( I think) Picasso free dive socks.  But, I have never been cold in the water even with my 7mm scuba suit that I had before my free dive suit. 

I do like the open cell suit for freedom of motion and warmth  over a typical scuba style farmer john suit.  Plus the fact that when you lube it up with diluted hair conditioner it feels like you put on a lubed condum all over your body.   :ky:

I usally dive between 2 to 3 hrs, it's all about the losing yourself out there. I start getting better bottom time and rythm after about an hour. That is also where the picasso ghost trimec comes into play. Never get cold  :icon_sunny:

The two things that realy limit my dive time are leg cramps and ab limits.  If the limit was still five I would get in trouble for sure.

Eat a couple of bananas the potasium really helps with the cramps.
