I live in some of the coldest waters in the world, you wear the best gear or you freeze. the flashbomb is paradigm shift. i ordered the new 3/2mm ebomb pro and the 3/2mm flashbomb pro for summer down here. i hardly wore the flashbomb at all, it was just too warm (summer water temps are about 18 degrees C). i am wearing it now in may (nearly winter here) water temps are currently 15 degrees C and will fall as low as 9 degrees C during winter. the suit does dry in 20 minutes which surprised me as i am typically suspicious of manufacturer claims. i just ordered 2 x 4/3mm flashbombs for winter and as usual cleanline were fast class in their service and pricing. i cant recommend this store and their staff enough. as for the flashbomb, i think i have said enough.
