wouldn't high top booties keep the water from coming in? As in bootie tops over wetsuit ankles. Not sure the best way to word that?

Booties are ok in the winter but get bothersome in the summer.
And yes beer does yield yellow calf water bulges Charlie

I had the same problem with my NP suit... I cut holes in mine... pretty much took care of the problem unless the suit rolls inward on itself. Besides that I love the suit.....
