Rip Curl Dawn Patrol 4/3 Chest Zip Wetsuit Suit nothing like previous 2 year old dawn patrolReview by Tom Riley Tom Riley
Sorry but suit is not as warm and fit is different than a dawn patrol I bought 2 years ago, I took it out a Kelley's cove San Francisco and got very cold. I surf and ride a mat when waves are junky chunky and fast hard beach break. I was in water 2 hours. The old dawn patrol was warmer when new. The older suit had seams splitting that I repaired and was tolerable esp because it fit so perfect. This same size LT fits way tighter in shoulders, thought I was gonna break something putting it on. I've surfed in it since then, tight in shoulders but not restricting too bad, also on mat the new material is super slippery, not a good feature to be slipping all over, ...some tightness and slipperiness will resolve as suit breaks in, but, my older same dawn patrol was warmer, fit better, more comfortable, WHO SAYS YOU HAVE TO REINVENT THE WHEEL?!!? AS A FORMER COMMCL. DIVER THRU THE 80's and 90's I watched the neoprene rubber industry go thru growing pains as one formula after another was experimented upon the commcl sea urchin diving fleet, often times for poorer results. Bring back the dawn patrol of 2 years ago, and reinforce the crotch seams,

Rip Curl Dawn Patrol 4/3 Chest Zip Wetsuit Great WetsuitReview by Jagger Jagger
I'm amazed at how well it keeps you warm you in 50 something degree water. I'm 5'9 about 150 and I bought a small and it is nice and snug. Great customer service from the guys at Cleanline.

Rip Curl Dawn Patrol 4/3 Chest Zip Wetsuit Nice fitReview by Bruno Bruno
Really nice fit. Also tried the O'Neill Epic (did not like the back zipper) and Quicksilver Syncro (size L felt too small). Recommended. I am 5'11", 170lbs and ordered size 'L'. Kudos to Cleanline for the nice packaging.
