Expect nothing less than solid performance with the Rip Curl Dawn Patrol Wetsuit. Utilizing Rip Curl's premium high stretch neoprene, the Dawn Patrol has a top quality hand feel that is comfortable against the skin and maximizes flexibility while maintaining durability. The Dawn Patrol Fullsuit has super strong triple glued and blind-stitched seams that are internally fortified in high stress areas with stretchy, seam sealing E4 Tape. A heat absorbing, smooth mesh chest panel is lined with warm and cozy Flash Lining which promotes core heat by shedding excess water. Designed well and priced right, the Dawn Patrol Back Zip Wetsuit provides a reliable and lightweight suit peppered with high end features that make a noticeable difference when you hit the water.

Rip Curl Dawn Patrol 4/3 Back Zip Wetsuit - 2016 excellent suit, stellar customer serviceReview by Matt Matt
This is a fantastic suit for any surfers looking for a mid-tier wetsuit that will keep them nice and warm. I use it in San Diego with zero complaints. Keeps me warm and allows me to surf for awhile. Also, the customer service at cleanline is incredible and will keep me coming back. I talked to a guy on the phone and he talked me through all my wetsuit options and then got my package a few days later with some treats thrown in. Thanks again guys!

Rip Curl Dawn Patrol 4/3 Back Zip Wetsuit - 2016 A bit too stiff and denseReview by Thick and warm Thick and warm
Taped seams are only partial - too stiff and thick in areas where it needs to be more stretchy.

Rip Curl Dawn Patrol 4/3 Back Zip Wetsuit - 2016 Great buying experienceReview by Chris Chris
The suit itself is absolutely wonderful, incredibly warm and flexible. What's even better is the impeccable service from Clean Line. These guys are unreal: shipped immediately, bar of wax and a handwritten note thanking us for our purchase and wishing a happy holidays came in the packaging. They even threw in a few Starburst ((the pink ones too))! Will definitely order from here again.

Rip Curl Dawn Patrol 4/3 Back Zip Wetsuit - 2016 Fantastic product and serviceReview by Ziggy Bardust Ziggy Bardust
I could not be happier with this suit. Took it out for a surf last week and could have surfed for hours. Not a bit cold. Great flexibility and movement. Not restrictive at all. Product arrived only 2 days after ordering. Could not be happier.
