If you didn’t get the hint from our 5 star rating, we love the Rip Curl Flash Bomb 3/2mm Chest Zip more than “your girlfriend” loves Katy Perry’s music.  (Don’t sweat it bro, we believe that’s why it’s on your iPhone.)

The combination of insane seam work, super stretchy and light neoprene and super quick drying insides make the Flash Bomb a must have.

What We Think

Ah,  Rip Curl Flash Bomb Chest Zip fullsuit, how we love you.  Let us count the ways:

  1.  Rip Curl’s Flash Lining is absolutely insane.  Not only does it keeper warmer than a curvy gal on a cold night, but it drys super fast.   Some of the info out there says 15 minutes and the lining is dry to the touch.  Rip Curl plays it a little safer and says 30 min.  We haven’t taken a stop watch to it just yet, but it’s pretty darn fast.
  2. Flexibility:  No matter what you’re up to out on the water, the Flash Bomb has your back.  The suit sports 100% Elastomax E3 superstretch neoprene, so you’ll be able to bend and twist as needed with no restriction from the suit.  The chest zip version is just a tad bit more flexible than the back zip; that’s why we had to hook it up with another half star.
  3. Warmth:  On top of the already mentioned Flash Lining, the Flash Bomb is rocking some tight seams.  The stitchless and double liquid taped seams will keep you snug and warm.

Some people want to bitch about the price.  I don’t think $399.95 is all that much to pay for a suit of this caliber, but if it’s out of your price range or you’re just starting out, there are plenty of other suits out there with out the bells and whistles of this bad boy.  Just remember, you get what you pay for.

If spending a couple more bucks now gets you a durable, warm and all around awesome suit, I think it’s worth it.  Just think about the time you can spend out in the water because you’re not miserably cold!  You can’t put a price on that.
