Matt Says:

"If you're looking for something warm on a budget then the Women's Dawn Patrol 5/3 is a great choice. We trust this suit so much we made it the primary wetsuit in our rental fleet! The back zip for ease of entry makes this an excellent starter suit and with the 5mm neoprene extending down throughout the legs, and flash dry lining keeping your core toasty you can stay warm in waters at least down to 50 degrees."


The Women's Dawn Patrol 5/3 Back Zip Wetsuit is the perfect entry level coldwater suit offering performance and durability, all at a great value. Built as a user friendly back zip wetsuit, the Dawn Patrol is the right choice for the surfer focused on comfort and warmth. With cozy Flash Lining in the back panel and a batwing water barrier system this suit prevents chilly flushing from around the neck and keeps your core nice and toasty. Now updated with E4 Neoprene in critical flex zones and FreeFlex Super Stretch the Dawn Patrol has everything you need to get out in the waves and have fun. Affordable, durable and comfortable.. what are you waiting for? Go surf!

Product Features

E4 NEOPRENE - The lightest, most flexible and warmest neoprene ever.

FREEFLEX NEOPRENE - Specially developed super stretch neoprene at a mid tier price point.

GBS SEAMS - Tripled glued, double stitched seam only penetrates one side of the neoprene allowing high stretch, strength, and minimal water entry.

BATWING SYSTEM - The batwing provides a barrier from water entry and coldwater flushing.

BLUE STEEL SEALED ZIP - Water resistant, steel head zipper with engineered overlapping teeth and a urethane coating.

STITCHLESS UNDERARMS - For unrestricted flexibility and maximum movement.




Rip Curl Women's Dawn Patrol 5/3 Back Zip Wetsuit Good suit. Keeps the cold out. Neck line could be more comfortableReview by OGKate OGKate
Overall this is a great suit. It seems well made and it keeps the cold out. It is a comfortable fit with the exception of the velcro tab at the neckline. No matter where I attach it, I still feel a bit of a rub. Putting on and removing the suit is no harder than what you would expect of a 5/3.
