Ripcurl have made an high quality suit at an incredible price, they've used high end E5 neoprene used in their most expensive (£499) flashbomb in the arms and shoulders of the suit. This is super flexible, quick dry material that allows your arms to move freely like your not wearing a suit. The rest of the suit, torso and legs, is made with E3 neoprene. An incredibly durable neoprene that is warm and lightweight. This combination of stretch where you need it and warmth elsewhere is how Ripcurl have made such a good suit at this price.
The Ripcurl Omega is a great step up level summer suit. It used Glued and Blindstitched seams which will keep you nice and toasty while using a basic but flexible neoprene through the suit. Back zip is easier to get into than chest zip but reduces flexibility in your arms slightly, the incredibly high stretch E5 neoprene will more than make up for it! For your first winter suit look no further. If you can push your budget by another £30/£40 then definitely check out the O'Neill Original and Ripcurl Dawn Patrol. For more advice call 01243 674830.
