Rip Curl Dawn Patrol 4/3 Back Zip Wetsuit Classic suit with a great fitReview by MJM MJM
I've gone through a couple suits to find the perfect fit. I'm 6"0 and 192lbs with an average build which is a cross between athletic and dad bod. The size chart shows I would be an XLS which did fit but just seemed shorter on the arms and legs than I have been used to in the past. I then went with the XL which fit perfectly. I got the Khaki color which looks great in person. I also when with the old school back zip. It's easier to get on and off, has a layer in the back to prevent flushing, and unlike the chest zip it feels smooth across the inside of chest and shoulders with no extra material to interfere. I am really excited I found a suit I love so much. Also thanks to Cleanline for being so easy and cool to work with on returns while I was finding the right suit.

Rip Curl Dawn Patrol 4/3 Back Zip Wetsuit Fantastic mid-level wetsuit! Review by CT CT
This wetsuit has got it all without the exhorbatant price.
From the tight fit to the flexibility and warmth I couldn’t have asked for a better purchase.
I really tried researching to find something affordable but not entry-level that didn’t skimp in terms of sealed and glued seams, extensive insulation lining, and freedom of movement in the arms and shoulders. I also wanted a suit that didn’t look cheap and was more minimalist in terms of styling. Cleanline Surf had the best price on the internet at the time and backed it up with responsive customer service and quick delivery. Couldn’t be happier with this purchase!
