<font color='#0000FF'>Curently use a 2 piece 7mm suit which is fine for temps up to 18ºc but cook in anything warmer so thinking in getting the Oceanic Shadow titanium for use on warmer water 18ºc+. Does anyone have first hand experience with this suit? It seems a bit expensive at £200 but being versatile seems to be a big advantage. Are there other wet suits similar to this?

Another thing is that on the diver report oceanic titanium report John Bartin mentions that suit gives 15mm thicckness down your spine - how? for me 5mm + the other5mm shortie is 10, does anuone know where the hidden 5mm is?

many thanks for any help.

Chris,
Many good wet suits have a spine pad to give more insulation in this critical area and to stop any water slopping around.
I guess this what this suit has

<font color='#0000FF'>IIRC Dominic did a splurge on the BS associated with wetsuits and said that there was no evidence that titanium added extra thermal properties, so maybe not worth any extra dosh fo that feature
