"The Billabong Foil Plus 5/4 Hooded Wetsuit is the ultimate entry level suit. You're getting a hooded chest zip with a full fluid seam weld for just over $200. That's pretty crazy. I gave this suit a test run for a few weeks and it's not quite as nice as a $400 wetsuit but I was very impressed how comfortable it is and I stayed super warm and water tight. For those with big noggins the hood is better than last year but still a little more snug that other hooded suits I have tried. Other than that five stars!"
The Billabong Foil Plus 5/4 Hooded Wetsuit brings you the affordability and performance that the Foil has delivered in the past but steps it up a notch. Equipped with increased spec and functionality, the Foil Plus adds warmth without blowing the budget. Like a high-end suit, the Foil Plus has 100% External S Sealed Seams to keep the heat locked in and Hollow Fiber Poly Propylene Lined Thermal Furnace Panels on the chest and back that block the windchill.
Economical and functional, the Billabong Foil Plus is a great option for anyone looking to explore coldwater surfing. This reliable entry level wetsuit was designed with a chest zip entry and strategically positioned seams for maximum comfort and flexibility in the water. The 5/4 Hooded Foil Plus is best suited for water temps 50° F and under.

- Billabong Foil Plus 5/4 Hooded Chest Zip Wetsuit Very warmReview by Marc Marc
RatingVery nice suit. Easy in and easy out. Haven't had a chance to wear it out yet because temps are still a bit high where I am. Did try it on to check the size and was quickly sweating. Looking forward to wearing it in the winter.(Posted on 10/5/2016) 2016-10-05

- Billabong Foil Plus 5/4 Hooded Chest Zip Wetsuit Best Bang for your BuckReview by Spencer Spencer
RatingIn my opinion the Billabong Foil + is the Pinnacle of an entry level full suit. The suit itself is comparable to Quiksilver's Hooded Syncro with the added benefit of exterior fluid welded seams. The suit comes in at $20 more than the Syncro, however, the welded seams will increase the longevity and flexibility of the suit so it is definitely worth the little added money. For just over $200 you can have an entry level priced suit with high performance characteristics of suits nearly twice as expensive. This suit is a no brainer!(Posted on 2/11/2016) 2016-02-11
- Billabong Foil Plus 5/4 Hooded Chest Zip Wetsuit Excellent Suit at an Excellent PriceReview by Adam Adam
RatingI was in need of a new suit...desperately. I found this little gem on Cyber Monday and couldn't pass up the deal. Chest Zip, check...5/4, check...built in hood, check...liquid welded seams, check. This suit has it all for an excellent price. Yeah the chest zip takes some getting used to, but I've never been warmer in the water. MINIMAL water seepage and when it does happen you're thankful for the cool down because this suit keeps you toasty. The built in hood is great because even if there's the occasion where you won't wear it, it doesn't strangle you when pushed back. All in all a great suit for those not wanting to front $400+ but still want most of the benefits those suits offer.(Posted on 12/22/2015) 2015-12-22
