Product Info

The Rip Curl Dawn Patrol 4/3 Back Zip Wetsuit offers performance and warmth features along with durability and great value. It has many of the high-end features that you would find in Rip Curl's Ultimate wetsuits.

This year the Rip Curl Dawn Patrol got an upgrade to an all-over E5 neoprene application (previously the arms were only E5), so now you can experience stretchy comfort everywhere, and upgraded the E5 Flash lining to include both the front and back panels. For durability, the seams were triple glued and blindstitched and fully taped with stretchy E5 tape, a major bonus for keeping water out while still remaining highly comfortable. For extra warmth, a back mesh skin panel design absorbs solar heat and reduces wind chill. The Rip Curl Dawn Patrol is your next high-performance, durable wetsuit at a great price.

Only a minor tear after a year of heavy use

I've used this suit twice a week for a year, and it only has one small tear above the knee. It's warm and pretty durable. The zipper and seams are still fine.

Pinholes all over halfway through first season

Cleanline staff were EXCELLENT during this purchase.

Less than a dozen sessions in and the suit is already developing pinholes at various seams. I had a premium 4/3 rip curl before this and it took YEARS before the suit started to fail. I decided to take a chance and the deal on a suit one step down from the premium line and its workmanship is extremely cheap. DO NOT BUY THIS ONE! Im not sure if its just mine or the particular lot of suits but its definitely a lemon.

Cleanline is Great, this suit - Just Okay.

First off, let me start by saying Cleanline Surf is great and I will definitely do business with them again.
So, I have been wearing Rip Curl suits for 15 plus years. 5'8 175lbs. Body has not changed much and have always worn an LS. Bought this suit for the back zip feature (getting hard to find), but was disappointed in the fit. Fits correct in the legs to the waist, but the torso is shorter and narrower than all the other LS suits I've owned. It's almost like it's an LS on the bottom and a Medium on the top. I have given it plenty of surfs to see if it will stretch out, but it hasn't. Just a heads up. Also, I know it's one up from an entry level suit, but the zipper is plastic now rather than metal which I don't see lasting very long.
On a positive note, it is warm and it is a good suit for the money.

Great service, will do business again.

I will take one star off for the zipper strap. It is a loop so you can pull up the zipper and the back panel at the same time. Its a great idea but it is not long enough for an old guy like me to reach. I had to tie a shoe string onto it just to reach it. Other then that it is perfect for a SO. Cal. winter were I live. Note to self, don't get old
