We all know that empty perfection await us in bitter cold climates. Don't be afraid to tackle those frigid barrels in the Rip Curl Women's Flash Bomb 5/4 Hooded Wetsuit. Starting with stretchy E4 neoprene, this top of the line hooded cold water suit utilizes insulating Mesh Skin Panels backed with fast drying E5 Flash Lining to soak up and retain the suns warmth. The quick drying Flash Lining consists of two engineered layers of softness that funnel water rapidly out of the suit making it one of the warmest and most comfortable wetsuit interiors in the lineup. The lower 3/4 of the seams on the Women's Flash Bomb are sealed inside and out with flexible, cutting edge materials, creating an external barrier to cold water. Setting you up for success in some of the coldest waters, the Flash Bomb Hooded Wetsuit expands the limits of your search.

Rip Curl Women's Flash Bomb 5/4 Hooded Wetsuit - 2016 I love this suit.Review by Fox Fox
I have been wearing this suit all fall/winter/spring on the Oregon/ NorCal coast and have not been cold once. I have been out in the water some cold days when the wind was blowing rain sideways (offshore :). It is super easy flexy in the water, dries quick, and is very cozy. There have definitely been a few days I got too hot so have ordered it in a 4/3 (which is a beautiful thing in these waters). I love my suit. I would definitely recommend it.

Rip Curl Women's Flash Bomb 5/4 Hooded Wetsuit - 2016 Good quality, sizing problemsReview by NW_gal NW_gal
I had had this suit recommended to me for cold weather SUPing. I followed the sizing chart carefully, but when the suit (size 10) arrived and I tried it on (inside my home), although it did fit me, I had extreme difficulty getting it off through the chest/neck opening. To get the suit as form fitting as one is supposed to, at least for me, meant that there was not enough room to remove the suit and get myself out of it in any normal (even with good effort) way. If one had handy help all of the time right there, or one was not in a hurry, this might not be a problem, but for me, the difficulty and the fact that nowhere do the measurements seem to address that opening size made this unworkable and a big disappointment.
