Tops and bottoms made from Neoprene materials have been becoming increasingly popular. They allow the individual sailor more options when layering and allow changing warmth levels throughout the day. Tops like the Neil Pryde Heatseeker and the Zhik Superwarm are perfect when combined with a Long John style wetsuit. Wetsuit shorts and pants are perfect in moderate weather when it's not quite necessary to wear a complete wetsuit.
