An explosion of warmth in cold waters.

A tried and true favorite, the multiple award-winning Rip Curl Men's Flash Bomb 4/3 GB Chest-Zip Wetsuit boast trustworthy performance thanks to its extremely lightweight construction, flexible feel, and unprecedented dry time. Based on the beloved and original Flashbomb, this version has been updated with E4 neoprene which makes it 30% stretchier and 20% lighter than the original. The E5 Flash lining uses two layers to transport water to the outside of the suit so it dries quickly, meaning you can hang your suit up after the morning session and have it be dry by the time an afternoon sets roll in.

The glued and blindstitched construction delivers unwavering stretch and durability, and Aquaban Plus tape and E5 internal seam taping eliminate water entry, without limiting your freedom of movement. Additionally, the E4 neoprene has a high warmth-to-weight ratio to make it feel like you're wearing a thinner suit than you actually are. The Hydro-loc collar eliminates flushing when you duck dive, while the three-hole drainage system allows any water that does get in, to escape easily (which can't be said of all your foes). And, last but not least, the S-Flex knees boast a flexible and extremely durable design, and the magnetic stash pocket secures your keys for a little peace of mind when out in the waves.
