Stefan Says:

Billabong in recent years has been making huge developments to their line and this is one of the best new wetsuits we’ve had in recent years. Billabong uses what they call “Smart Foam” neoprene which is made partially from upcycled car tires. Environmentally-friendly wetsuits don’t have a great track record with performance, but I think this suit just hits a perfect medium where it’s solid in every department. Surprisingly flexible, really warm, (especially with an inside liner throughout) lightweight AND eco-friendly. If you haven’t checked one of these out before, I’d say it rivals about any wetsuit out there.


The Billabong Furnace Carbon Ultra Hooded Chest Zip is a top shelf wetsuit and that is now warmer and lighter than ever. Updated with the newest technology for the 2018/19 season, the pinnacle of wetsuits is now made with 300% stretch smart foam, adding more heat and flexibility. Made from upcycled car tires, the eco-conscious smart foam is topped with a no soak external jersey, holding 30% less water, radically reducing both weight and wind chill. On the inside, Billabong's warmest carbon fiber lining traps body heat, adding to the suit’s thermal retention without adding weight. The incredibly efficient and ultra warm suit is topped with a Drymax entry system to keep water out and heat in. The ultra lightweight and high stretch material combined with anatomic strategically shaped seams for the ultimate performance wetsuit.

Billabong Furnace Carbon Ultra 5/4 Hooded Chest Zip Wetsuit Little loose around the cuffsReview by A A
Used it twice so far and the material is nice and stretchy. Suit is warm with exceptions (see below). It’s pretty lightweight for a 5/4 and the full liner is nice. I like the sealed seams. The sizing is consistent with other brands.

I’ve used a lot of suits over the years (mainly Xcel) and I have a few issues though. The main one being the cuffs are pretty big at the ankles and wrists so a LOT of water gets in. If you have smaller wrists or ankles it may be an issue. The zipper is odd in that you have to connect it every time like a jacket. The neck has an extra over-the-head flap that seems redundant. The chest zipper is pretty long and the end stitching rubs my right shoulder/chest but that may break in with time.

Great value for the price but could be improved.

Cleanline’s service was prompt and excellent as always.
