I can’t seem to get a handle on this stuff, but I know that the P-Net gurus are all the way around it. Even their own website isn’t real clear, so could someone help me with a few questions?
- Is it a neoprene substitute? I can’t find anywhere where it says “use this in place of neoprene”. Can I snorkel or scuba with it in water 70 degrees and up the way I would with a 3 mm wetsuit? It seems like a lot of folks use it strictly as a base layer.
- Is it machine washable, or rinse and dry like neoprene?
- What are the other products that are similar? Seems like there are a lot of other products that may have slight differences.
I need something for South La. winters where the water temps rarely get below 55 and air temps range from 25 to 80. If I did go swimming, it would be quick, since any winter paddling I do would be close to shore. Neoprene is a pain in the a** to put on and take off, as well as the smell issues, etc. This seems like it would be the ticket.
