top quality wetsuit well recommended ”Lee Jago, 28 Jan. Review is from Rip Curl Mens 5mm Flash Bomb Plus (Black). Translate.
Rip Curls flagship Flash Bomb Plus winter wetsuit is once again one of the warmest wetsuits we have in stock, and is more flexible than ever too.
The 5/3mm thickness panels are cut to allow maximum freedom of movement, with the areas which need the most flexibility now using E4+ neoprene for more stretch, the panel stretches from under the arm all around the elbow and has no liquid sealing on the outside of the seam for even more stretch.
Air chamber neoprene, a sandwiched perforated layer within the neoprene for insulation, is used in the large front and back panels and the slick skin style single lined panels on the chest and back help cut out the wind chill affect by allowing water to run straight off the wetsuit.
The Flash dry lining takes the now familiar fluffy polypro lining on the inside of the wetsuit even further by having a very fluffy outer layer to wick moisture away from the skin and an inner layer that helps it drain away, making it not only warmer when you're in the sea but dry faster on land too.
Rip Curl have used a stitchless seam on the majority of the wetsuit, all the seams apart from the neck area and the arms, use the glued seam with "double tape" on the inside and outside, helping make a more durable, flexible and water tight seam.
When Rip Curl talk about double taping the seams they are referring to the seams on the lower body which have very stretchy tape on the inside and liquid seal rubber on the outside, this gives the seams a longer life and a better seal. The liquid seal is left off the arms to ensure maximum flexibilty.
The drainage hole on the bottom of the front zip panels at the front and back is a one way valve so no water can get back in, ideal if you use the wetsuit underwater for extended periods when spear fishing, taking photographs or snorkelling
This is a 5/3 wetsuit, it has 5mm panels in the torso and legs and 4mm panels in the arms and 3mm panels under the arms, this ensures you get the warmth in the core of the body and the flexibility to paddle in the arms.
The best thickness of wetsuit for you depends mostly on where and what time of year you will be surfing, 5mm is the most popular thickness for year round surfing in the UK.
We have created a guide which goes into more depth about choosing the best thickness for you so if you've got any doubts take a look at the msw wetsuit thickness guide
Getting the right size wetsuit is critical, the wrong size will not keep you warm and could end up putting more stress on the seams, different brands use slightly different size charts so you may not be the same size across different makes of wetsuit, we suggest looking at the size chart page to judge which size will be the best fit for you.
If you have any questions about the differences between wetsuits, the fit or the thickness that would be best for you give us a call on 01548 854660 or an e-mail on firstname.lastname@example.org where we're happy to help.

top quality wetsuit well recommendedLee Jago, 28 Jan 14. Review is for Rip Curl Mens 5mm Flash Bomb Plus (Black).
Unreal service yet again from Magicseaweed - ordered a few times from them and every time has been super quick and spot on. Called for a bit of advice about this suit and the guy I spoke to was great - friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. First impressions of the suit are great - tried it on and the lining is almost like a fleece - really comfortable and warm - I was sweating quite a bit which can only be a good sign for the cold English waters! And £100 off! CheersCharliefb, 14 Feb 14. Review is for Rip Curl Mens 5mm Flash Bomb Plus (Black).
Best wetsuit I ever had. Very warm, still very flexible, especially the paddling without major restraint. Dries very fast. High quality manufactured. Can´t say anything about durability yet, but I would definitely buy this wetsuit again.Leo, 22 Nov 12. Review is for Rip Curl Mens 5mm Flash Bomb Plus (2013).
Actually the product itself would be great, but when it arrived, it came with damage to the materials around the ankle which I had to fix up with Blackwitch. I chose to do this rather than return the suit immediately because you were out of stock on the site, so it looks like I spent £360 or so on the 'ugly duckling' with damage and was altogether a bit disappointed. I'm really really hoping that the £300 I just put in for another wetsuit will not have any problems.Andy, 16 May 13. Review is for Rip Curl Mens 5mm Flash Bomb Plus (2013).
Super toasty and plenty comfy. No probs manoeuvring. Perfect.Bodhi, 28 Jul 13. Review is for Rip Curl Mens 5mm Flash Bomb Plus (2013).
