I always wear something, even if its a thin suit, I just like having an extra layers, just in case I run into some jellyfish.

yes, at the very least I always wear a rash guard. It's just a layer of protection from the elements, and can help avoid Jelly stings... and i think i'm most scared of jelly fish... sharks, i'll swim with any day... jellys... not so much. I'm too worried they are all box jelly's lol

In warm tropical waters I wear Sharkzen preformance shirt and rash guard shorts. In water colder than 80 degrees I wear a 3 mil full wet suit. In water colder than 70 degrees I wear a 5 mil wet suit. In water colder than 60 degrees I stay home and take a nap.

CA diver so simply yes! I tend to need a bit more than a skin. I do wear a rash guard under my wetsuit.

After diving in Florida where there are fire coral and other things that itch, burn and string. I always wear a skin.

I always wear at least a thin skin (Dive Goddess)and I wear this under my wetsuits as it makes them easier to don.

I wear the skin as protection from jelly fish, fire coral and diving wrecks where there is a chance of scraping against the metal.

I get cold easy, especially after my 3rd dive of the day, so, I wear a full wet suit even in 80+F waters
