For the price you simply can't beat this hooded suit. If you are on a budget and in cold waters from the 50's down to the high 40's then this is the suit for you! The attached hood will prevent heat loss and get you through duck dives free of ice cream headaches with ease. That paired with the chest zip entry makes this suit both flexible and minimizes flushing. A keeper for sure!
The latest Billabong Foil 5/4 Hooded Chest Zip Wetsuit is lighter and more flexible. The Foil wetsuits offer a high level of warmth, performance and resiliency at a value price. Built with Billabong's exclusive Airlite S Flex Superflex Neoprene, along with an internal thermal warming system made with recycled fabrics. Made to be affordable but still providing great features seen in higher priced suits, the 5/4 Hooded Foil still holds true as the best value cold water hooded wetsuit out there! The 504 Chest Zip Hooded Foil is best suited for water temps between 55 - 62 degrees.

- Billabong Foil 5/4 Hooded Chest Zip Wetsuit stiff with flushing. Review by tyler tyler
RatingThis suit has a very stiff feel. The range of movement is more restrictive then my 6/5/4 xcel hooded suit. My main complaint is that the neck entry just seems to flood with water.(Posted on 3/30/2015) 2015-03-30
You get what you pay for here.
