With an award winning history, it's hard to compete with the solid reputation of the Rip Curl Flash Bomb 5.5/4 Hooded Wetsuit. Starting with stretchy E4 neoprene, this top of the line hooded cold water suit utilizes insulating Mesh Skin Panels backed with fast drying E5 Flash Lining to soak up and retain the suns warmth. The quick drying Flash Lining consists of two engineered layers of softness that funnel water rapidly out of the suit making it one of the warmest and most comfortable wetsuit interiors in the lineup. The lower 3/4 of the seams on the Flash Bomb are sealed inside and out with flexible, cutting edge materials, creating an external barrier to cold water. Setting you up for success in frigid waters, the Flash Bomb Hooded Wetsuit allows you to take the search to new lengths.
