I use a 5mm wetsuit made by snugg. They are made to measure in cornwall, fantastic suits. I appreciate that most of you reckon a drysuit would be better on the water but honestly, I would be 100% confident in it keeping me warm in or out of the water. Wetsuits have come a long way in just the last few years. Its lined with merino wool, its very lightweight and flexible too.
