The X-flex range are probably Xcels best value wetsuits, the features like polypro lining and ultrastretch neoprene are added to the critical areas and the neck system is identical to the X-zip 2 range giving you a wetsuit which provides warmth and flexibility in winter at a reasonable price.
The X-zip 2 system uses the same crossover neck entry system with one side sealed as the top of the range Xcel wetsuits, so there's minimal chance for water to get in through the neck.
ThermoCarbon is Xcel's name for the fluffy polypro lining which they have added to the inside of the chest and back panels on the X-flex wetsuit, it's designed to trap a layer of air to help insulate against heat loss from the core of your body.
UltraStretch neoprene is used in the upper body where you need the most flexibility for paddling, if you haven't had a wetsuit with super stretch neoprene before it will be a revelation how flexible you can be without sacrificing any warmth.
Choosing the right thickness for you
This is a 5/4/3 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, with the right accessories you can use a 5mm wetsuit even in the coldest months throughout 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
Choosing the right size for you
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.
