XCEL Hawaii 3/2 Axis Back-Zip Wetsuit - Women's

The frothier, the better.

Howling winds and cool temps have kept most people away from the beach, which means you get to enjoy the frothy storm swells all to yourself while wearing the XCEL Hawaii Women's 3/2 Axis Back-Zip Wetsuit. This lightweight and flexible suit provides excellent warmth and flexibility so you can surf cool-to-cold seas in comfort.

UltraStretch neoprene construction allows you to move freely so you don't feel restricted when you're getting low in the barrel, and a Texture Skin chest panel prevents chilly gusts from sapping all your core warmth. Durable GBS seams are backed up with Thermo Dry seam tape and S-Seal outer seam technology to keep cold water from rushing in when you duck dive. The back zip makes entry and exit easy, and it's slightly offset so it won't create a painful pressure point on your spine.

went down a size

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

My size 6 winter suit from Xcel feels slightly big so I went down a size (4) for this one and the fit is great. It's super stretchy, I like the lining, the seam placement, and the tighter cuffs on the arms. This is a great wetsuit.

I'm 5'6" 125#

Size fit as expected
