I previously had a Psycho Tech 5/4 but now have a new Psycho One 5/4 which is just as warm as the previous Psycho Tech but is a lot more supple. The new Psycho One now has all the TB stuff the Psycho Tech previously had but doesn't have a smooth skin chest panel. Doesn't matter to me 'cos I wear an extra layer over the top when temps really drop.

The mystic is warm, but wont last. The durability sucks and imho the price/quality isnt in their favor. Before the end of the first season their got holes in it, seams ripped of and the zipper got stuck.
I changed to the manera magma 543 and really happy with that one. In my second winterseason with that one and still as New.
And it is warm, which is nice as watertemp goes into the 5/6 degrees Celsius and an airtemp that is about the same.

Billabong furnace 7/6 also exists ;)

My go to wetsuit for anything below 12deg C. Can go without gloves until 6deg because it is too hot otherwise.

I have an Xcel DryLock 5/4 (non-hood) and it's really, really warm. What with a good thermal rashie, wind proof top. I am super toasty here in the UK winter.

I do have an old 6mm O'Neil hooded for the snowy/icy days. It's too warm for anything else.

I use a drysuit myself but a lot of people on my spot swear by the Xcel Drylock 6/5/4 with hood!

Mutant 5/4 . Love the zip on hood option if the temp drops to Baltic
