Over the past few years, wetsuit technology has undergone tremendous improvements. You can now purchase a mid-range 3/2 wetsuit for around $280-$400 and still get key features found in higher-priced options. A 3/2 suit is recommended for water temperatures ranging from 60-68 degrees Fahrenheit, depending on your tolerance to cooler water temperatures.

O’Neill Women’s Hyperfreak - $369.95

O'Neill Women's Hyperfreak 3/2+ Chest Zip Wetsuit

Since its release in 2019, the Hyperfreak has continued to climb the ladder of popularity. What makes the suit stand out from the others is the notable Technobutter 3 and TBX neoprene. The highly flexible neoprene is so lightweight you’ll barely feel like you’re even wearing a wetsuit. It fits like a glove, and with a minimal seam design, feel the paddling fatigue melt away as you extend your surf sessions.

The TB3X fully taped interior seams are an important feature to highlight. The taping is comfortable against the skin and also does a tremendous job of sealing the suit to keep it as watertight as possible. In addition, strategically placed drain holes allow water to flow through the neoprene panels to exit the suit.  

You can see why our customers give the Hyperfreak a high 5-star rating! Take a look through the numerous reviews on the product page.

Billabong Women's Furnace Comp - $399.95

Billabong Women's Furnace Comp 3/2 Chest Zip Wetsuit

From one fantastic suit to another, the Billabong Furnace Comp is a personal favorite of mine. It’s got the ideal balance of warmth, flexibility, and a little splash of style with the leg graphics. The partially recycled Smartfoam neoprene is especially soft, while the purple Graphene liner in the torso and legs provides optimal warmth. Since the liner isn’t placed in the shoulders and arms, the suit retains a good amount of flex for those long paddle days.    

Another feature that maximizes comfort, warmth, and durability is the Super-flex neo tape found on the interior seams. In addition, exterior welded seams ensure you stay comfortably warm throughout your session. The cherry on top? Billabong manufactures the suit using eco-friendly materials such as water-based glues, recycled car tires, and 100% recycled fibers in the Graphene liner. 

Although it lacks the flexibility of the Hyperfreak, snag a Furnace Comp for yourself if you need the ultimate warmth a 3/2 suit can provide.

Sisstrevolution Women’s Seven Seas - $259.00

Sisstrevolution Women’s Seven Seas 3/2 Chest Zip Wetsuit

Looking for something reliable that’s got everything you need? Check out the solid Seven Seas from Sisstrevolution, which is a female-specific surf company. This suit is specifically designed for active surfers with a tailed fit.

The robust Super Stretch neoprene and partial Fever Fiber lining provide warmth and protection from the demanding ocean elements, giving you optimal opportunities to paddle into the wave of your liking. Triple glued and blind stitched seams, along with an internal seam tape, hold everything together session providing comfort and warmth after session.  

You can’t beat the price tag either! Look no further than the Seven Seas for a suit that’s got you covered in a minimalist chic design.

Highlights and Features


Rip Curl Women’s E-Bomb - $329.95

Rip Curl Women's 3/2 E-Bomb Zip Free Wetsuit

A popular choice amongst the Cleanline Surf, the Rip Curl E-Bomb screams high performance with its zip-free entry and premium E6 neoprene. In fact, it’s our biggest competitor to the O’Neill Hyperfreak.

Although zip-free suits require a bit of solid shoulder mobility, once you’ve got the suit on, enjoy the ultimate flexibility from head to toe. Also, without a zipper, there are fewer parts to break down over time. There’s a so-called Torpedo underarm gusset which enhances the flex and stretch of the suit even more. 

Along with the high-performance aspect, the suit is fully lined with a lightweight E6 thermo blue liner. The liner is soft against the skin, so there is no need to worry about chaffing while out in the water. You’ll also find E6 internal tape and stress point tapping for added durability throughout the suit.

Curious to try your first zip-free suit? Don’t pass on the highly touted Rip Curl Women’s E-Bomb.

Manera Women’s Seafarer - $279.00

Manera Women's Seafarer 3/2 Back Zip Wetsuit

Last but not least, the “new-to-us” Manera Seafarer impresses with its premium design and reputation at a solid-looking mid-range price tag. First of all, Manera uses a unique 3D design to achieve what we think is one of the best-fitting brands. The Seafarer is specifically designed for high-performance surfing with a focus on warmth, stretch, and durability.    

Manera’s entry-level S-Foam neoprene has the necessary stretch for ideal fit and comfort. Don’t let the X10D liner pass by unnoticed—it’s the same liner found in the X10D, which retails for $470! After testing this liner in the chilly Oregon ocean waters, we’re impressed with its warm and flexible performance. 

Looking for a 3/2 suit built with sustainability in mind? Manera has you covered with its limestone-based neoprene, recycled neoprene and jerseys, recycled carbon black, water-based glue, and dope-dyed yarn. Take a look at our Wetsuit Guide: Sustainability chapter to learn what that all means!

  • 3D design for ultimate fit and comfort
  • True to size
