    Wetsuit review

    Post  scootertrash on Wed Oct 28, 2009 2:29 am

    I hate to say it
    cos Rip Curl as a group suck Dog Cock

    But the E Bomb is a fantastic wet suit
    1 winter down and so far super flexy and it hasn't started leaking like their wet suits normally do
    if it lasts another winter ...i'm in to buy another one.

    agree scooter.

    i had the old e-bomb(4/3) with the built in hood and shoulder entry. it was warm as, but heavy and restrictive, within 18months the seams fell to bits and it leaked in the worst possible place. i've kept it for diving.the shoulder entry was okay when on, but a real hassle to get in and out off... especially on those snowy cold wind days.

    got in touch with a mate and he sent me this yrs latest f bomb(4/3, back zip with firewall), rashy hoody, boots and gloves. what an improvement! so light and flexible with awesome heat retention. it appears they have used a new sealed seam almost identical to o'neills system....and the back zip is heaps faster to get in and out of.

    the gloves and boots are primo, my first surf in the gloves and my hands didn't even get wet for about 1.5 hrs...and even when they did eventually get wet they were warm as.

    Ive got a coastlines 4/3, quiksilver gloves and Ripcurl booties ( im a real brand whore) dont use a hood dont like them. I find this keeps me really warm even on the odd occasion i take the waveski out and spend a couple of hours sitting up out of the water in the winter wind. I have to say though the wettie is a little constrictive thru the arms.
