Review:  If you need maximum protection from water all the way down to the 35° mark, but still want flexibility, durability and a suit that will dry in less time than it takes to make a box of macaroni and cheese, then the Rip Curl Flash Bomb 6/5/4 Hooded Chest Zip fullsuit is the way to go.


What We Think

If you’re looking for a 6/5/4 hooded fullsuit, you’re after warmth and the Flash Bomb delivers on that like Fed Ex!

Why is this suit so warm?  Let’s break it down:

  • Flash Lining:  Rip Curl developed this new weave technology for the inside of their suits to be extremely warm and dry super fast.  In under 30 minutes your suit will be dry to the touch.
  • No Stitches:  The Flash Bomb uses E3+ Tape plus Aquaban to seal the inside and outside of each seam so there is no stitches or needles used.  That means no pin whole leaks, less water and more warmth.
  • Wind Resistant Chest Panel:  Keep the cold air and water out of your suit and from around your zippers with their insulated and wind proof chest panel.

A lot of other suits make you sacrifice flexibility for warmth.  Not so with the Flash Bomb.  The entire suit is made from 100% superstretch E3 Elastomax neoprene and has four way stretch panels.  There are no seams on the shoulders or in the underarms to slow you down either.

Warm, flexible and quick drying.  It’s all you could ask for.


  • For use in water 35º and up
  • Dry to the Touch in 30 Mins!
  • Stitchless seams

Some great features of the new Flash Bomb wetsuits:

Flash Dry Lining
As well as being incredibly warm, this exclusive new weave technology allows the Flash Lining to be touch dry in around 15 minutes from hanging it up. No more pulling on a wet wetsuit.

Stitch-less Technology
Having no stitching as 2 major benefits:

  • allows the seam to stretch further and
  • it eliminates pin hole leaking – which means that a suit using stitch-less technology is warmer and dryer than those that do

E3 Neoprene w/ 4 Way Stretch Panels

E3+ Tape Plus Aquaban
