The O'Neill Psycho Tech 4/3 Hooded Wetsuit is the new generation of our shop favorite, the Pyrotech. This premium coldwater suit has the warmth, flexibility and durability you want in a wetsuit and is constructed with high quality materials from one of the greatest innovators in the industry. Made from 100% TB2 Neoprene, the Psycho Tech is super stretchy, lightweight, soft and pliable. TB2 truly is a step ahead of the game when it comes to quality neoprene. It is the most advanced super stretch neoprene available on the market. 20% lighter, 30% less water absorption, with improved durability and quick dry properties, you just can't beat it.

O'Neill's F.U.Z.E. system allows for an easy in and out chest zip design while still sealing up nicely to provide a snug fit and prevent flushing in all directions. With the insulating TechnoButter 2-Air Firewall Neoprene in the chest and back panel and the Single Fluid Seam Welds you don't have to worry about getting cold. The Psycho Tech provides all the warmth you'll need so you can comfortably surf anything from 50°F water and up.

O'Neill delivers an amazing coldwater suit that offers lightweight protection from the elements, unrestricted flexibility and superior warmth. What are you waiting for? When it comes to a hooded wetsuit, look no further than the Psycho Tech.

Product Features

  • Double Super Seal Neck: A toasty warm two-layer design featuring a 360 smooth skin interior lining, wide adjustability and a secure lock down
  • Single Fluid Seam Weld: Watertight Stitchless Technology that keeps water from entering at all seams and critical points
  • TechnoButter 2 Neoprene: Advanced super stretch neoprene, 20% lighter, 30% less water absorption with improved durability and quick dry properties
  • TechnoButter 2-Air Firewall Neoprene: TechnoButter 2 Neoprene packed with air pockets to reduce water absorption and dry quick

  • Red Zone Zipper: Offset zipper with teeth that keeps water from entering
  • Super Seal Cuffs: Fused to create a very low profile at the cuff ending creating the best seal ever. The low profile prevents water entry and improves durability in your wrist and ankles
  • Krypto Knee Padz: Abrasion resistant, high stretch neoprene panel with ergonomic shaping designed to extend the life of the wetsuit and protect the knee while punching through waves
  • External Key Pocket with Loop: Located along the lower leg inseam, this key pocket is easy to access and completely secure
  • Plasma Ankle Seals: Helps prevent flushing through the ankles and keeps a secure fit
  • Strategic Seamless Paddle Zones: An ergonomic, seamless undersleeve panel that allows for unrestricted motion and eliminates rashing
  • LSD (Lumbar Seamless Design): We all know that even the best surfers spend significant amounts of time sitting on their boards. By using a single panel in the rear area of the wetsuit, water entry is minimized and stretch is maximized.


O'Neill Psycho Tech 4/3 Hooded Chest Zip Wetsuit - 2016 Leaks!Review by Matt Matt
This suit looks great, fits great, and has many of the great Oneill details (awesome zipper) that I've come to appreciate and expect. It is comfortable and super stretchy-- stretchy to a fault: the wrists and ankles leak! The problem was bad enough that I sent it back to Oneill thinking I just had an oddball suit. Nope, new one leaks too. I think in their attempt to make a super stretchy suit they created a water intrusion problem. The E-bomb I bought to replace it is bone dry. Adios Oneill, hello E-bomb. YMMV

O'Neill Psycho Tech 4/3 Hooded Chest Zip Wetsuit - 2016 Keep me warmReview by DrJ DrJ
Keep me warm in Los Angeles and Ventura counties this winter, 2017. I wear booties and gloves as well because I can't stand being cold. This is working even when the wind started to blow. And it's been a pretty cold winter for us. Very flexible suit and it dries super fast. I definitely recommend this. Thanks cleanline good job.

O'Neill Psycho Tech 4/3 Hooded Chest Zip Wetsuit - 2016 great suit - better customer serviceReview by Costa Costa
Ok, this review is way overdue, but better late than never (sorry Josh). The first suit I got into used glue in the seams that gave me a wicked rash. What I love most about my O'Neill suit is that it is made with products that do not irritate my skin. Also love how warm it is, lightweight with good stretch for the thickness. Over the several years I have had it now, it is also very durable.

However, shop here for the customer service! When the shop heard about how I was reacting to the glue in the first suit, they let me know not to worry, that they would find a suit that worked for me. There is genuine caring for the customer here that goes beyond any manufacturer guarantee or product warranty. They want to see you have fun surfing!

This is best 4/3 I've ever owned. It seals very well through the chest and is very comfortable/stretchy. I would buy it again.

O'Neill Psycho Tech 4/3 Hooded Chest Zip Wetsuit - 2016 Perfect Suit - Better Customer ServiceReview by Djcase Djcase
I was trying to find a 4/3 to use for my cold water ventures and I knew I wanted a hood. I had the psychofreak 4/3 without the hood previously. That lasted me two and a half years and I used it once a week if not more. On the product, I knew I wanted the same shit I had before but I wanted a hood this time. In terms of pricing this is up there with all other high quality 4/3 hooded wetsuits. What really drew me to Cleanline was the price as it was $100 less than any other competitor and I knew this was the lowest price I would get for the product. When it arrived there was a handwritten note encouraging me to have fun and keep surfing along with stickers and a t shirt. Normally I don't write reviews but the customer service at Cleanline is unbeatable. Thanks guys!

O'Neill Psycho Tech 4/3 Hooded Chest Zip Wetsuit - 2016 Awesome Suit and Great Customer ServiceReview by Nrcruit Nrcruit
Had a bunch of questions about this suit before the purchase and the guys on the website chat helped me narrow down exactly what I needed. Suit got to me quickly and it's amazing. I'm 6'1" and 190lbs and the suit fit perfectly. Was not the biggest fan of the built in hood before purchasing this suit but I love it now. The O'Neill hoods are a little lighter than other ones I've had in the past so it does not feel restrictive at all. Super easy to pull off the hood if you get hot too, you don't really notice it.

O'Neill Psycho Tech 4/3 Hooded Chest Zip Wetsuit - 2016 4/3 heavenReview by wdsurf wdsurf
Bought this suit from the cleanline crew when it first came out .Love IT! Wear it on the Great Lakes in late spring and early fall. So warm and flexible it's like wearing a 3mm. Suit it's so flexy and light weight. Wear it on the sup in the dead of winter when airs in 30,s to get a quick session cause it's so easy to put on and take off!

O'Neill Psycho Tech 4/3 Hooded Chest Zip Wetsuit - 2016 Fit and Finish - Top NotchReview by Surly1 Surly1
I am 5'11" and 165 lbs, wearing a size - Medium. The fit is ideal and comfortable due to the TB2 neoprene. It is nice and stretchy even in a 4/3, giving you warmth and range of movement. I surf the west coast but mainly Oregon and this suit is plenty warm even on a 36 degree air temp and 50 degree water temp winter morning.
In addition, I can't say enough of the crew at Cleanline. They are awesome! Over the past few years I have purchased numerous items plus, 2 suits for my daughter, a wetsuit for my wife and a longboard for her. Each interaction, whether in store or online, has been exactly the same. They treat you like a King. They even took in my daughters outgrown wetsuit on trade and gave us credit toward a new one. Lastly, I have found fun little surprises packed into my orders - hand written notes, wax, candy, reef calendar etc... Its just like when they used to put prizes in your cereal box. Thanks for the great service, you rock!

O'Neill Psycho Tech 4/3 Hooded Chest Zip Wetsuit - 2016 Great all-year suitReview by jshea jshea
I surf in Northern California and this has been my go to suit for a few years now. It's warm enough for the winter, but still not too hot in the summer. Perfect if you're only going to have one suit.
