Got the Billabong Foil 5/4 Hooded Chest Zip Wetsuit a couple months ago. Last weekend it warmed up to 27 degrees F, and stayed warm. Build quality so far has been great. Outstanding price. Will know more in a year.

Didn’t know where else to leave a wetsuit review so I thought I’d leave one here. Just recently, I bought the new Billabong Foil Wetsuit at Cleanline Surf Shop in Seaside. I’ve been surfing for over a year now and this was my first chest zip wetsuit I’d ever gotten. So far I’ve l0ved it! After taking it for a couple sessions I’ve fallen in love with this suit. It’s warmth and flexibility are unrivaled by any of my previous suits and my friend who has used it, liked it more than his $250 USED xcel wetsuit. Compared to my previous back-zip, the flexibility in the shoulders makes it much more easy to put on, and the build in hood prevents water from gushing down the back. Unlike other suits I’ve tried on, the seams inside the suit are clean and non-irritating. For such a great price, I’m amazed by the quality of the suit. I’ve done some googling and on for suggested retail price, the suit would cost close to $400! You can tell by the prices and attitude of the owner that his main goal is to see people getting in the water. His prices are the cheapest in the Northwest simply because he wants people to come in. He wants as many people to be able to enjoy surfing as possible. As well as helping me find a wetsuit, he gave many tips on how to put it on/wear it so that it would be more comfortable. Overall, I’m very impressed with the quality of the suit, price, store, and owner.
