A good wetsuit can change your surfing experience, and you really do get what you pay for. If you surf a lot, or hate being cold, it’s worth investing in something high-quality. A good wetsuit allows you to stay out for longer sessions, your surfing improves, and you can catch more sunsets. With that said, here’s our roundup of the best women’s hooded wetsuits for 2020.
The newest Psycho Tech wetsuit from O’Neill is the pinnacle of wetsuit technology and performance. The days of sacrificing one desirable trait in light of another are long gone. The new Psycho Tech is lightweight and warm. Durable and Flexible. Easy to get on and it dries fast. Taped and sealed. To top it all off, O’Neill is now offering the exact same 5.5mm Hooded Psycho Tech in a Women’s Version as well. Overall, O’Neill hit an absolute home run with this wetsuit and I cannot wait to tell you why it should replace your current hooded full suit.
Today, wetsuit manufacturers have been endlessly experimenting with new materials in order to make their suits the warmest, most flexible, and/or fastest drying on the market. Whether it’s Patagonia switching over to Yulex, a more sustainable alternative to neoprene, Rip Curl using a quick-drying “flash” lining or the exceptional elasticity of O’Neill’s Technobutter neoprene; it seems every brand has developed some unique trait to distinguish themselves from their competitors. However, with these technical advancements comes a steady increase in price. It’s to the point that if you’re looking at purchasing a company’s high-end 5/4mm wetsuit you should be prepared to shell out $450-$600.
We realize that not everyone is looking for these top tier wetsuits. In fact, more times than not, we’re on a budget and looking for an inexpensive suit that will get the job done without breaking the bank. Whether you’re a weekend warrior, a flat-water SUP user, a novice surfer who is tired of renting, or you’re just trying to save a little money; these are our picks for the best wetsuits you can buy for under $270.
