Yeup a 5/4 w hood, 7mm booties and gloves will hold you over all through winter. Take a look at the lobster claw gloves.
hi Conway - i would recommend a 4/3 for spring/fall. if you're in the water in a shortie into October, you could probably get yourself a hood at a later time and make it into november w the 4/3. try them on at a shop, super stretchy materials. wetsuit warehouse online has some decent deals. good luck, see you out there
