Matt Says:

"The new Fall 2019 Dawn Patrol doesn't look a lot different but it definitely has had a major upgrade for this year. Now with 100% E5 neoprene there is a night and day difference between last year's Dawn Patrol and this one when it comes to the feel and stretch of the suit. If you're looking for an entry level wetsuit that is comfortable and warm, without sacrificing stretch and performance then stop and take a hard look at this one. Fully taped internal seams and a combination of flash lining and thermo lining round out the new Dawn Patrol making it a great deal with some high end features. You'll be stoked on this suit."


The Rip Curl Dawn Patrol 5/4 Hooded Chest 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 and our customers agree because it's one of our top selling wetsuits.

Rip Curl Dawn Patrol 5/4 Hooded Chest Zip Wetsuit Good suit stupid zipper designReview by Joni Joni
Over all the suit is good but the zipper feels cheap and is hard to connect when trying to zip up the suit. Worst thing ever when u r stoked to surf and you can't get your suit zipped up. I could just be an idiot but I don't like this zipper system. The suit itself is great for the money, best feeling suit I have ever owned. I feel super mobile in it when paddling.

Rip Curl Dawn Patrol 5/4 Hooded Chest Zip Wetsuit Warm, a little stiffReview by Dan Dan
Super warm suit, sizing seems to run a little tight. I typically wear a Small but I think I'll go Medium next time. That said, I'm toasty warm in this thing.

Rip Curl Dawn Patrol 5/4 Hooded Chest Zip Wetsuit Good suit, could be warmerReview by Mike Mike
Overall this is a pretty good suit. My only complaint is it’s just not warm enough for me in the PNW winter. I’ve upgraded my boots and gloves and I’ll either suck it up for the rest of the season or maybe upgrade and put this one back in service in the spring. Suit is not quite fully taped and no external taping - wish I had bought a flash bomb instead. Flexibility is great, not a fan of the zipper. It fully detached like Billabong suits do but is way harder to reattach - slows my roll a bit getting ready to paddle out.

Also, the torso feels a bit stretched/short despite my being in the middle of the size chart for the large.

Rip Curl Dawn Patrol 5/4 Hooded Chest Zip Wetsuit Excellent product and top notch buying experience Review by Woodwelder Woodwelder
The suit is very warm and comfortable meeting or exceeding my expectations. This is the first ripcurl suit that I have bought so it seemed a little risky without trying it on first but it worked out. I am curious to see how the longevity turns out but if it does well I will buy the same suit again. I will probably get it from cleanline too. They went the extra mile to make it as good as it gets
