The E-Bomb 5.5/4.5 Hooded Chest Zip Wetsuit is Rip Curl's ultimate performance wetsuit. Delivering massive stretch, a smooth streamline fit and protection from cold water, the E-Bomb continues to be a team favorite. This season the E-Bomb has been made even better by adding Aquaban Plus external liquid tape for increased warmth and comfort. Having your wetsuit sealed on the outside of the seams adds life to the suit and prevents chilly water from leaking in, keeping you toasty warm for more time in the water.
The E-Bomb is for the surfer who wants incomparable stretch and flexibility. Made with Rip Curl's most advanced E4 neoprene, your paddling and surfing movement will feel more natural, keeping a smile on your face and your wave count up. The combination of quality materials, high tech neoprene and flexible sealed seams creates a super performance suit for coldwater surfing that you can rely on for many sessions to come. Built with a thickness for every water temp, try an E-Bomb today and feel the ultimate super stretch wetsuit.

- Rip Curl E-Bomb 5.5/4.5 Hooded Chest Zip Wetsuit So far soooo goodReview by Gabe Gabe
RatingI am writing to review the hooded chest zip E-Bomb 5.5/4.5 wetsuit.(Posted on 1/15/2017) 2017-01-15
So far I have used it once in 3-5ft conditions this past week in Rhode Island. It was a nice day; sunny, air and water both in low 40s. So keeping in mind that these were not dead of winter conditions and in waves that size I didn't spend a ton of time underwater, this suit more than did the job. I stayed out for nearly three hours and for most of it I was completely warm. Seriously warm.
Flexibility is great for a thick suit and so is water-tightness. When paddling, some water does pool in the upper chest area, but then drains through some designated holes when you sit up.
I am really happy with the suit and highly recommend it. I gave it four stars instead of five simply because I haven't been out in really cold conditions yet.
Comments on Cleanline:
Not only were the staff members friendly and helpful when I called to exchange for a larger size. The first package arrived with some very useful SWAG and a hand-written thank you note. Very classy folks.
Thank you so much,

I looked at sleeve when I was looking for replacement and saw 4.5 / 5.5
I thought dam I am in great paddling shape to do over hour and half most times in winter!
Here in Spring Lake / Belmar area of New Jersey we get some of our best waves from Jan - April
I have used this suit in 34 degree water for over a hour , No Problem!!
The suit is very flexible after a couple uses , It held up great for the abuse I put it through! even put some patches and sealers on it to get through end of season
over all I would highly recommend this suit ! It is a Great suit that I didn't see many places carry it ....I saw it here and bought it in June for next winter !!!!! Hell Yeah
One of the locals I surf with Bought the Rip Curl E Bomb 3.5 / 4.5
He recommended this suit said a little easier to paddle and stayed warm but didn't stay in water as long.
