DRY IN 15 MINUTES
For the surfer who wants the best wetsuit possible - No compromises - Constructed with the most advanced neoprene and loaded with the latest ocean technology. The Ultimate Hooded wetsuit for freezing water, the Rip Curl Flash Bomb 5/4 Hooded Chest Zip Wetsuit combines ridiculous warmth with amazing comfort and flexibility.
100% E3 Neoprene: The third generation of Elastomax Superstretch Neoprene. Lighter, Warmer, and More Flexible.
Flash Dry Lining: Flash Dry is an exclusive new weave technology with 2 engineered layers – the first layer is designed so the 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! And, of course, as well as the rapid dry time the FlashDry lining is also one of the warmest, most comfortable linings available. The Flash Bomb is fully lined with Flash Dry Lining from the chest all the way to the ankles, making it the warmest, most flexible, and fastest drying suit on the market.
E3 Tape plus Aquaban Combo:Double taped to create the ultimate waterproof seal. New E3+ super stretch tape on the internal seams allows unrestricted stretch and is the most comfortable seam available. A new low profile aquaban liquid tape on external seams creates maximum durability and seal.
Aqualock Waterproof Zip: A thin, low profile waterproof zipper, that locks water out, without restricting movement like other bulky zippers. Also, a reverse zipper allows for a bigger opening for easier entry.
Seamless Underarms and Shoulders: Exactly what it sounds like, no seams on your armpits or shoulders. Maximizes flex and comfort, no more rash!
4 Way Stretch Panels: The back seam on the Flash Bomb is engineered to minimize seam restriction and maximize comfort. It allows for unrestricted movement while paddling and performing maneuvers.
Drainage System: A three hole drainage system in the chest zip design of the Flash Bomb allows excess water to drain quickly and efficiently so you don't notice it!
S-Flex Knees: Super Flexible, yet ridiculously durable knee pads. These allow unrestricted movement while providing the more durable knee pad on the market.
Mesh Skin: Smooth Mesh Skin Panels on the chest and back help insulate and absorb solar heat, as well as keep wind chill down.
Stash Pocket: External key pocket with zipper and key loop.
Rip Curl Hoods
Rip Curl has spent more energy and attention to detail than any other company when it comes to hoods. They are the most flexible, most watertight, and by far the most comfortable hoods on the market.
E3+ action panels: Reduces hood “snap back” and provides maximum head rotation.
Engineered Chin Cup: Uses a 3D “pre-shaped” pattern and E3+ panel to be as comfortable and easy on your jaw as possible.
Cord lock down: Stops the pull cord from snapping back into your face.
Improved Peripheral Vision: A pulled back opening from around your eyes that stops that annoying blockage of peripheral vision.
