    Water temps are very similar. Do you wear 400 weight undergarments in Monterey?
    I tend to get very cold, so I always dive dry with either a thick DUI bunny suit or a Weezle in SoCal.

    I dove Channel Islands in a polartec 150 and was fine

    When I go back and forth between Monterey and Catalina, I am roughly equally comfortable in my 8/7mm semi-dry. There really isn't much difference. 400 is heavier than I hear most people wear in Monterey, though. Do you have just a regular topside fleece jacket that fits well? Or double up on the base layer?
