Anybody recommend open water socks/gloves?

Hi,

Swam in the sea quite a bit this year due to pool being closed. Have a standard triathlon wetsuit , 4mm on the torso 2mm on arms.

However my last swim was in October at which point I returned to the pool. I recall after 30 minutes swimming my feet and hands being very very cold.

Now that pools are closed again I will be looking at getting back into the sea.

Looking for recommendations for gloves/socks to guard against the cold.

I have heard Zone3 are good but difficult to get, any other recommendations?

Thanks

Recommend Blue Seventy for both. I have the gloves and socks. They're pricey but I have tried ad few other ones and found them too heavy for swimming.
