Designed to perform from sunup to sundown, the Xcel Women's Makaha SmoothSkin 2/1 Front-Zip Wetsuit Jacket is an ideal companion for all of your warm water adventures. The Makaha's full front zipper makes getting in and out incredibly easy while the SmoothSkin exterior material is wind-resistant and won't absorb water or weigh you down. Additionally, this jacket is equipped with UltraStretch Neoprene that's both lightweight and comfortable and ultimately ensures less water absorption, maximum stretch, and durability thanks to its soft foam and tight weave.

- Q & A
This thing rocks.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
This thing kept me reasonably warm after getting soaked in 54 degree water and then staying mostly still in a super windy area (also 54 degrees) for 5-6 hours. It allows for a full range of motion and stretches with your movements without riding up too badly. Would definitely recommend.
Girlfriend Loves it!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I bought this for my girlfriend to use wakeboarding and playing in the ocean. Xcel makes great gear and this is no different. She noticed substantial warmth gains. I attribute this to not only the neoprene but also the SmoothSkin exterior. She also loved the simplicity of the front zip. She normally wears a Medium in women's tops and the 8 fit great.
