A revolution in wetsuits has arrived - developed with the most popular wetsuit innovations, the all-new Rip Curl Flash Bomb Heat Seeker 3/2 Zip Free Wetsuit is the warmest wetsuit ever with all of the technical features found in a Flashbomb wetsuit, plus more.

Designed with Flex Energy, a revolutionary neoprene that generates heat when stretched as you move through the water. Flex Energy lining will activate and heat your wetsuit to keep you warm in the coldest water temps. The Heat Seeker also features Liquid Mesh which offers superior stretch panels that absorb solar heat and reduce wind chill in the areas you need it the most.

Rip Curl Flash Bomb Heat Seeker 3/2 Zip Free Wetsuit Best suit...everReview by Vipretr Vipretr
I called and spoke with one of the Cleanliness staff--very personable and candid. I was forewarned that the Heat Seeker had the highest number of returns (sleeve and shoulder tears). However, I've had > 8 Rip Curl zipper-less suits and know how to contort my body through the straitjacket upper body section with no tears or rips.

I wanted warmth (I'm lean and lose heat like a sieve when I get wet) and the greatest flexibility (to prolong endurance and paddling power for cold and heavy sessions). I wanted a 3/2 that would do that all winter long here in south Orange County, California. So far, I'm smitten by the comfort, warmth, and supple flexibility; the neck is so soft and sealing against the spinal tap of a cold water rush. THE BEST SUIT I'VE EVER HAD. Period. Thank you, Cleanline, for the best service and sale prices!!

Rip Curl Flash Bomb Heat Seeker 3/2 Zip Free Wetsuit Fantastic, completely stoked!Review by Scuba Steve Scuba Steve
I bought the Flashbomb 3/2 last year and loved it.
Every year i get a new 3/2 and a 7/6/5 suit and thought i would
try the new Flashbomb again for my thinner suit.
I was not let down! The new model is just as comfortable
and warm as last years. Actually, it is more warm, as it has
the fleece lining in the arms unlike last years model.
Spend the few extra dollars if you want to stay warm above
or under the water, you won't be disappointed.
Cleanline staff is incredible. Have been buying 2-3 suits from them
for over 5 years and have no complaints. They always take the time to answer questions and they always have the suit in stock that i need.
And of course the goodies they pack in the boxes is a nice touch.
Although, they did send me a small shirt this time when i buy medium
wetsuits which was kind of weird.
Will be back for sure!
Thanks Cleanline!

Rip Curl Flash Bomb Heat Seeker 3/2 Zip Free Wetsuit Awesome WetsuitReview by Tekapo Tekapo
I am currently selling my 2016 Rip Curl 4/3 Flash Bomb Plus in place of my new 3/2 Heat Seeker. I am stoked with the warmth and flexibility. I was worried I might need the 4/3 for the extra warmth, but so far this new 3/2 Heat Seeker is doing the job fine even for an early morning dawn patrol surf. I think I made a good call. Rip Curl does it again. I am stoked. Best suit on the market! You won't be disappointed.
