wetsuit blues

I am having trouble lasting more than an hour in this cold weather. I haven't had this trouble before and I wonder if it's my gear.

I read in some surf magazine "Wetsuits are so good now that if you get cold it's your own fault." Not true! It's not my fault! I am trying not to get cold!

I wonder if my 2-3 year old suits need to be replaced? They haven't got holes or rips, so why aren't they warm? I have two 6-4 O'Neills. My other O'Neills have lasted forever. But the 6-4s get far heavier use. Let's face it, we're in them six months of the year, which is why I have two. One's 2 years old and one's three. Is that too old? Do I need new ones?

It's the boots and gloves too. Do they just get too old? My fingers and toes get cold. OK, the gloves are quite old, maybe five years, but haven't seen heavy use. The boots are only one or two years old.

When do you need to replace your gear? Does it eventually just give up the ghost even if you can't see anything wrong with it?

I've had my wetsuits for 7 years and they don't seem to lose warmth protection really. It's a lot colder this year, that could be it.
