Anyone tried these? Are they going stand up to the mid winter north sea or is it a case of nice idea just not quite there yet?

I have tried the gloves, and they have become my favourites. They are very thin, and you get a great feel, and the material is very flexible. It do not put any uncomfortable pressure on the hands and finger, so I like them very much because they don't stop the blood from flowing. I got two other sets with more normal neoprene gloves. they are made a bit tight to make them stay on the hands, but the result of that is that they slowing down the blood circulation. The C-Skins NxGen boots and gloves are complete air and water tight, so they just use the vacuum to stay on. One more plus is that you can turn the gloves inside out all the way, so they dry easy. You can probably do that to the boot's to.

I haven't tried the boot's yet, but i'm going to order them today. I'm surfing in Norway, at Bore. I bet these boots and gloves will work spring, summer and autumn. But that I will find out :)
