What to wear?

That’s your choice too. I started in a full wetsuit, neoprene gloves and boots to keep the cold at bay. I quickly got tired of the wetsuit (I find them a pain to put on and take off). I switched to a short john wetsuit, gloves and boots when it’s colder and just a rash vest and shorts when it’s warmer.

Again, nobody cares what you wear. Wear what is best for you and the conditions you will be swimming in.

Dry warm layers are a must when you get out of the water, especially in winter. A flask of something hot is a good idea too.
