Rip Curl Dawn Patrol Chest Zip Hooded 5 x 4 mm
This is my winter wetsuit of choice (during the bitter days of last winter I used my 6 x 4 mm hooded Flash Bomb a lot).
The reason I choose this model is because I often only have an hour to quickly get a surf and this 'suit goes on and comes off quicker than my Flash Bomb. It is plenty thick enough for an active hour in water of 8 degrees. It has been a great autumn and spring wetsuit too.
Rip Curl use E5 neoprene in the action panels, Thermoflex for the body and a single lined flash lined panel in the back.
There is 3/4 internal E5 Tape for added seam security
It is a great 3 season wetsuit.
Rip Curl have been making surfing wetsuits since 1969. They have been at the forefront of all wetsuit innovations since then. Rip Curl designed and built the Elasto almost 20 years ago to satisfy the demands for a light, warm and flexible wetsuit. That technology has been improved year on year since. Men's and Ladie's wetsuits feature all the latest technological innovations and we believe they are the best surfing wetsuits in the world today. Whether you need a Flash Dry lined, Hooded 6mm FlashBomb for ice cold water or a thin E-Bomb summer layer, Rip Curl have the product for you. The budget Omega gets you in the water at an affordable price but does not compromise on neoprene quality.
