philosophical question regarding wetsuits?

Ok so my wife and I are in a debate over which is better fashionably; to wear clothes over your wetsuit or not. Any thoughts?

If your trying to be fashionable then dont wear a wetsuit.

After rereading my initial post I figured I would receive a fair amount don't wear the wetsuit. So here are some more details, my wife likes to wear her ultra jane wetsuit anytime the temp is below 60 degrees but she does not like to wear shorts over the bottom half. This perplexes me as then it looks kind of like I am going rafting with aquawoman, so then we got in a debate about wearing shorts over the wetsuit. We decided to let the mtnbuzz community solve the debate.

Vote for Shorts over wetsuit or for No Shorts over wetsuit.

who the hell wears clothes over a wetsuit, or for that matter under a wetsuit? she must be very concerned about what she is showing through the suit.

backwardsraft, backwardsraft, backwardsraft... When will you ever learn? If you are married to a woman who enjoys engaging in riversport with you, she gets to wear whatever the hell she wants to.

Not going to get a straight answer from me. When I'm rowing I wear spash pants or nothing over my wetsuit, depending on just how cold it is. But as a paddler, either capitan or crew, I wear cut-offs. I find that my ass slips around on the tubes less with the added traction of the jeans material.

Butt for the fashion conscious it seems pretty obvious that the shorts should complement the paddling jacket and/or PFD.
But really, how badly do you want to win this argument? If I had a woman who wanted to raft with me often I'd let her wear what ever she wanted, even a wonderwoman, supergirl, ar catwoman outfit, and be proud to be seen with her.

Need a couple more date points for comparison.

Such as:

your wifes bottom without clothes.

same with wetsuit underlayer

same with wetsuit.

same with wetsuit and exterior shorts

That would be the only way we can make an informed and accurate judgement for you.

I agree with spencerhenry and JustKip. if your lady is in to rafting with you let her wear what ever she wants or nothing at all.

That's not a philosophical question. Such questions might be: does a wetsuit exist? How do you know, because it makes you feel warm? What are feelings and how do you know they are real? What is existence?

No shorts.
