For peak performance in cool-to-cold waters, count on the Rip Curl Women's Flash Bomb 3/2 Chest-Zip Full Wetsuit. This premium suit has been upgraded with an E5 Flash lining for even greater flexibility and a lighter feel. Rip Curl also redesigned the pattern to offer a more feminine look and feel.
E5 Flash lining has 25% more stretch and is lighter than its predecessors for new levels of comfort and performance. E4 internal seam taping and Aquaban Plus liquid-taped internal seams practically eliminate water entry without limiting mobility. E4 neoprene has a high warmth-to-weight ratio to make it feel like you're wearing a thinner suit than you are.
The chest zip combines the freedom of a free suit with the easy access of a back zip. The Hydro-Lock collar prevents flushing when you duck dive, while the three-hole drainage system allows any water that does get in to escape. S-Flex knees are flexible and extremely durable, and a stash pocket secures your keys so you don't have to risk leaving them on shore.
- Q & A
My go to line for wetsuits
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 4
The flashbomb series of wetsuits is the bomb...high quality. It is true that you get what you pay for. I already had one in a 4/3 and now just purchased the 3/2 for warmer water and as a replacement for my old leaky suit from another brand. The flashbomb lining not only dries quickly, but also is warm and soft. Ripcurl generally fits on the slim side for women so has a less curvy shape which works well for me. My only complaint is that my neck gets slightly irritated from the top of the wetsuit, right at my hairline. This is happening with both of my flashbombs....so I wonder if the neck needs to be a little shorter.
