Stefan Says:

"For just over $200, I think the Absolute X is the best value in a Hooded 5/4 Wetsuit. With an easy, dependable chest zip entry, ample warmth and surprisingly flexible neoprene, the Absolute X is solid on all fronts. What really separates this suit from its peers is the exterior fluid seam weld over the stitching for added durability and warmth. Something you won't see on any other suit under $300. Save some cash!"


The affordably priced Billabong Absolute X 5/4 Hooded Wetsuit opens the door for full on fun in cold water. Built with premium AX2 Superflex Neoprene, the Absolute X has glued and blind-stitched seams that are internally secured with tape and then externally sealed with liquid seams. The chest and back are lined with quick dry, hollow yarn thermal lining for further insulation in your core. Hitting all the marks for you to paddle out in comfort, the Absolute X Hooded Wetsuit is a quality coldwater suit for surfers on a budget.

I couldn't find another 5/4 hooded suit at this price it's a great deal! I've used it a few times so far in New England in February and I have been nice and toasty. So if you don't want to kill bills get this suit.

Billabong Absolute X 5/4 Hooded Wetsuit - 2016 Solid and WarmReview by
The billabong absolute hooded 5/4 is affordable and warm. Upon first entering the water, no water penetrated the suit thanks to fluid seam welds. It has a panel on the chest similar to the original O'Neill psycho 1 that just plain works. This suit would have been top of the line like 10 years ago. I was not cold in this suit while surfing in 48 degree water. signing out.

I used this wet suit for surfing the Canadian Pacific in December and was very warm. I'm 6'1", 175 lbs and the MT fit perfect. Well built and I have experienced no issues.

Billabong Absolute X 5/4 Hooded Wetsuit - 2016 I know that in the future we will come to this CleanLine surf again for his surfing needs.Review by My sons first wetsuit! My sons first wetsuit!
In the last 2 years, my son has taken an avid interest in surfing and has developed quite the love for it. We live close to the Oregon Coast and though the waves there are awesome, it can get pretty cold. My son used to borrow a friends wet suit, but recently saved his own money up until he could afford one for himself. He knew he wanted this one as it's quality and durability are unmatched. The suit arrived on time and not only was it packaged wonderfully, but my son was thrilled to find that a few small surprises were included. He got wax for his board, a t-shirt and even some starbursts, which are actually one of his favorites! This is customer service at it's best! He was so happy and I know that in the future we will come to this cleanline surf again for his surfing needs. Thank you so much for taking the time to treat your customers so awesome. That's pretty rare to find these days and very encouraging!!
