The most versatile suit on the market, the 5/4 Mutant is truly two suits in one. This suit makes a great year round suit in the Northwest and can get you pretty deep into winter even in the Northeast. Take off the hood, attach the regular neck piece and you'll be stoked surfing in water temps in the mid to high 50's. Throw the hood on and you'll stay toasty in the 40's when it's howling offshore and the swell is pumping.
The O'Neill Mutant 5/4 Wetsuit is the most versatile wetsuit in the O'Neill Wetsuit line. The Mutant allows for use with a standard chest zip neck piece or an interchangeable 2mm hood for colder days. Perfect for the surfer that wants to be in the water during a variety of conditions but can only afford one suit.
Built with an easy chest zip entry, firewall insulation and fluid seam welds, the Mutant will keep the warmth in and the water out. A lightweight combination of Ultraflex DS Neoprene and insulating UltraFlex Firewall makes for improved comfort and flexibility. Two suits in one, now go get some!

- O'Neill Mutant 5/4 Hooded Wetsuit - 2015 Best Suit Review by Rich from Humboldt Rich from Humboldt
RatingThis is my 2nd Mutant from Cleanlines and not only is it the best wetsuit they have the best prices. The personal note with the suit is a nice touch in a world of impersonal transactions. The quality of the suit is great. My last one lasted over 2 years with lots of use. I would highly recommend cleanlines and the 5/4 Mutant.(Posted on 9/27/2016) 2016-09-27

RatingLove this wetsuit! Attachable hood is the bomb. As for warmth. Nothing compares. I'm in low 50 degree h20. Toasty! Feel like the price is good. Really good if you consider the hood. Only wish is that they would have one with some color options.(Posted on 7/14/2016) 2016-07-14
- O'Neill Mutant 5/4 Hooded Wetsuit - 2015 Flawless SuitReview by Chili G Chili G
RatingI bought this suit to surf the pacific northwest and be comfortable while I did so. This suit does exactly that and is flexible enough that I often forget I have it on. The quality of the neoprene is very high and the welded seems make me believe that I will have this suit for quite some time. Well worth the price.(Posted on 6/15/2016) 2016-06-15

- O'Neill Mutant 5/4 Hooded Wetsuit - 2015 Great warmth/flexibility/price relationshipReview by Axel Axel
RatingI bought this suit a few weeks ago and I've already had 4 sessions in a few spots around San Francisco. Such a great suit! Keeps you warm in the cold Norcal waters in the winter. Good flexibility and cool design.(Posted on 2/11/2015) 2015-02-11
Also the customer service at cleanlinesurf is outstanding: I had made a mistake on the size so I sent them an email and they suggested me the correct size and modified my order so that I would still get the right suit on time! Great experience!
- O'Neill Mutant 5/4 Hooded Wetsuit - 2015 Great suit!Review by Jeremy Anderson Jeremy Anderson
RatingLet me start by saying I originally ordered last years suit. Upon trying it on I noticed a small tear near the entry point. I called Cleanline and told them about the situation. Shortly thereafter the manager called me. He asked me to explain what had happened again. At this point I thought I was stuck with the suit having admitted trying it on. To my surprise he told me that because they were out of 2012 models he would have to give me THIS YEARS MODEL at no extra charge!!!! Well today I got my new suit and it is a huge improvement over last years. I just got back from my first session and I am completely satisfied! I would be surprised if O'Neill could improve on model. Thanks Cleanline!(Posted on 10/19/2013) 2013-10-19
