Yep mine get cold way more easily than I do. She will hate kiting if she is cold. So whatever you ride get her a mm thicker than yours.

I can strongly recommend the Rip Curl Flash series. They tend to use better tech a year or two ahead of other brands.

My girlfriend gets cold very quickly, even in the summer she is using 4/3 wetsuit when i am with shorts and lycra.
Any ideas what is the best 5mm wetsuit that a person can buy right now?
Where are you? Some brands are easier/cheaper to get hold of than others depending on the part of the world.

I have been most impressed with ION for quality, but there are other brands that are equally good. Spending more & getting a good quality/stretchy suit sounds like it would be a good investment. I would also suggest a 2mm vest to put under the suit for colder days - better than having an unnecessarily bulky suit.

Do these really thick wetsuits feel bulky and restrict movement? I have never been in anything more than a 3/2 but my GF gets very cold quickly as well and I would like to get her something as warm as possible but am worried about mobility. Unfortunately there aren't a lot of places to try them on.

I have a 6/4 Pro Limit Vapor. They are really flexy and don´t affect my riding. Mobility is no issue. Obviously a 3/2 still feels even better...

the warmest wetsuit...is going to be a dryuit (with layers underneath)

no need to re-invent the wheel here...the kayak dudes already figured this stuff out..

imo, best solution for cold water watersports...
a gore-tex(or equivalent) drysuit...with sweat wicking/dry-fit long johns underneath
