Phil's Thoughts: New for Fall/Winter 18/19 the new Flash Bomb 4/3 is something to see. If you HAVE to be warm - this is the suit. We don't have a warmer 4/3 than this suit. Fully lined with Flash lining and all seams sealed with Aquaban and then taped and it's still GBS - serious warmth for long toasty sessions.
Since this is the chest zip, it's going to be even warmer and more flexible than the back zip version. If you like chest zip wetsuits, you like being warm, and Rip Curl wetsuits fit you well, then this is the suit to get.
From Rip Curl: The Flashbomb 4/3 chest zip offers 100% E5 flash lining throughout the entire wetsuit. Our exclusive E5 Flash lining is as flexible as traditional double lined neoprene allowing unrestricted stretch and warmth on the entire suit. 3/4 external Aquaban Plus tape and internal E5 flashlining tape in the arms provides maximum durability and while maintaining insane flexibility. This suit is lightweight yet extremely warm. This is the go to wetsuit for the surfer who prefers a chest zip closure system and demands the highest quality performance wetsuit available.
