  • Suit Description

    Ripcurl have made the Dawn Patrol a top end wetsuit at a great price point by adding high end features only where you need them. E5 neoprene lines the upper body and arms of the suit where flexibility is crucial, this is premium neoprene with 30% more stretch, 20% lighter and 10% warmer than standard E4 lining. The lower body is made of 3/4 E4 Thermoflex, a combination of E4 neoprene with a thermo lining which traps heat in the suit and warms crucial areas such as the kidneys. The wetsuit has black panels with E5 Flash lining; not only does this make the wetsuit one of the warmest and most comfortable to wear, it is also the fastest drying on the market. This year the Dawn Patrol comes with back mesh skin panels, smooth mesh panels that absorb solar heat and reduce wind chill. 3/4 of the suit has internal E5 Flash lining tape running over the interior seams preventing water coming through the seams, this has 25% more stretch and is lighter than its predecessor.


    Expert Advice

    So what does this all mean for us using the wetsuit, well for one it's going to be a lot more flexible throughout the entire suit. E5 neoprene is one of the most flexible materials and used in there top end Flash Bomb wetsuit. Along with that it also has Flash Dry lining which is on the inside of the suit and designed so that it retains your body heat for longer meaning you can stay in the water even when it's super cold. Thermoflex lines in the lower body of the suit is designed to keep you warm. Not as plush or as flash drying as the Flashbomb lining this new Thermoflex lining still makes a huge difference to how the suit will feel in the water and the warmth it will be able to trap and therefore should mean you can be in the sea longer. The Dawn Patrol is really aimed at the guy who wants to have some of the features of suits over £400+ (such as flashdry lining) but not break the bank. Its one of our most popular suits for everyone who comes in the store given its great price tag. Available in both Chest Zip and Back Zip For more advice call 01243 674830.
