Matt Says:

"Rip Curl's Dawn Patrol 4/3 Back Zip uses top of the line E4 Neoprene which is also what you'll find in their high end suits going for $400. This makes the suit super stretchy, comfortable and warm. Add the back zip for easy of entry, smooth skin chest panels for even more warmth, reinforced knee pads for durability, and a solid glued and blind stitched seam and you have a really great package at an affordable price. This is an entry level wetsuit that really ticks all the boxes and I highly recommend it!"


Now with E4 Neorpene, The Dawn Patrol 4/3 Back Zip Wetsuit is an excellent fullsuit at an even better price.  This back zip wetsuit allows for ease of entry. Don’t fret over this percent of super-duper stretchy stuff or built-in reverse cycle air-cons but still enjoy a bunch of high-end features in this class-leading wetty. Frothing out in the Dawn Patrol you’ll be warm, flexible and ripping all at an economical price.

Finally decided to stop renting and buy my own wetsuit. Great decision. Warm, great fit, good price. Everything they said it was, and the suit shipped on schedule. Absolutely recommend it.

Rip Curl Dawn Patrol 4/3 Back Zip Wetsuit The BestReview by Robert Robert
It was hard deciding which suit to buy, the selection at Cleanline is huge!! I settled on the Rip Curl since I have used their suits in the past and they fit nicely and wear well. I have used the Dawn Patrol a couple of times and it is warm and really flexible, also easy on and off. The service I received from the staff at Cleanline was awesome. The suit arrived when promised and they included some cool swag and a personal note hoping I would enjoy the suit. I would not hesitate to use this shop in the future!!!

Rip Curl Dawn Patrol 4/3 Back Zip Wetsuit Good suit - great serviceReview by Schultzy Schultzy
Very comfy compared to my 5mm farmer john and jacket. I give the suit 5 stars for now, however I've only had it one month and 5 sessions - If the seams and material hold up for a couple seasons I'll be happy. Service is top notch. 6'2" 180 lbs.(purchased Large) 50 years old and use it at Westport, Wa. About 53-54 degree water this April and I was plenty warm.

Purchased one for 17 yr son also - same cold conditions and he loved it. 5'8 150 Medium
