The Basic Dawn patrol wetsuit has had a make-over this season, it now boasts super stretchy neoprene all over and thick lining on the inside of the back panel, as well as an innovative back zip pull cord design.

Rip Curl use two types of neoprene in the Dawn Patrol, one is the E4 that you find on their high end range which is used on the upper body and lower legs, areas that need the most flexibility, the other feels pretty good but is not as stretchy and makes is used on the torso and body panels.

The Flash lining is not as thick as on the Flash Bomb wetsuits but it's a welcome addition to the slick skin style back panel, helping keep you that bit warmer, especially if there's a cold wind blowing.

A front zip gives you more flexibility and less flushing than a back zip, if you haven't had one before you'll find it takes a little bit of getting used to but everyone we've dealt with has got used to the entry and exit quickly and benefited form the design.

With the improvements over last season the Dawn patrol holds it's own in the budget category.

Flash Dry Lining - used on the back panel only. Flash Lining is an exclusive new weave technology with 2 engineered layers - the first layer is designed so water passes through it directly into the 2nd Layer. The 2nd Layer then funnels the water rapidly out of the suit once it is hung up. Dry Fast - Surf More, As well as the rapid dry time the Flash Lining is also one of the warmest, most comfortable linings available.
