Rip Curl Flash Bomb 4/3 Chest Zip Wetsuit - 2014 Good but not greatReview by Raja dat Raja dat
1) The fit, warmth, and flexibility of the F-bomb is amazing. No complaints in these categories.
2) Cleanline customer service was awesome and I will definitely order from them again

1) The only complaint I have is the key pocket on the lower left leg of the suit. The seams at this location is physically noticeable once the suit is on and resulted in a rash from the constant rubbing after using it for two days. Although it is small in detail, the location of this pouch is a design flaw and I am unable to wear the suit for more than two days. I will not buy another F-bomb in the future if this pocket is still in the same location.

Only used it once so far, but as expected. Warm, dries fast, and entry easier than expected.

Rip Curl Flash Bomb 4/3 Chest Zip Wetsuit - 2014 Fit,warmth,and ease of entry- all great!Review by Brian R. Brian R.
I purchased the navy flashbomb 4-3 e4 chest zip wetsuit about a month ago from cleanline.First, I'd like to say that these guys are doing business right. My order for the wetsuit and booties also contained a complimentary t shirt, some wax, an a nicely personalized hand written note that they were stoked for me to get these top shelf products and said I should let everyone know how they worked out after I used them some. Well- I have. I'm about 5'10 /155lbs, and the suit fits me like it was a custom. The navy color is awesome. The fleece lining is super comfy on your skin and I believe helps you get this thing on easily. The zippers and closures are all top notch. It's almost a little to warm at this point in the season, but I do surf primarily in Lake Erie, where surfing is best in the worst possible conditions. This thing gets 2 thumbs up from me. I'd give it more if I had more thumbs. Oh- I almost forgot- it dries crazy fast!
