I have about 150 hours dive duration on my 3mm wetsuit and now I am starting to feel cold at water temps that I was previously OK in.
Is the suit now "tired" ie has the constant compression and release of the compression now resulted in the suit becoming not as insulating as when it was new, or am I just getting old and feeling the cold?

Suit defintely loose their insulating properties as they get older without question. Also makes them feel nice and worn in :)

The seams probably get a little porous around the stitching too allowing a certain amount of in-out flow (though very small) which new suits don't.
