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.

Rip Curl Flash Bomb 5.5/4 Hooded Wetsuit Converted a loyalistReview by MrB MrB
First of all I want to give it up for Cleanline and their customer service. Being a native PNW surfer I am proud of how they portray the PNW surf community. Now for the suit. I have been an O'Neill loyalist for years, but with the F-Bomb winning so many SIMA awards I felt that I couldn't go wrong. From the warmth, flexibility, and technology I can now see why this suit wins awards. There is so much flex in all the right places and I love the extra flex under the arms. The suit is definitely warm. I could see how it could be a little too warm for some, but I get cold in the summer with a 4/3 suit. The E5 flashlining makes you fell nice and snuggled by the suit. This is nice when the ocean isn't being so friendly and is slamming icy cold outside sets on your head. When duckdiving, there is no hood flood. This is a huge plus for me. Side note: The quick dry time is also legit thing. I could go on and on, but to sum up this suit, I would say that it did not disappoint an O'Neill loyalist.
