Rip Curl FlashBomb HeatSeeker Review

The most technically advanced cold water wetsuit with super quick drying qualities

Flex Energy Neoprene – A revolutionary neoprene that generates heat when stretched. As you move through the water, the Flex Energy lining will activate and heat your wetsuit.

Liquid Mesh – Superior stretch smooth mesh panels that absorb solar heat and reduce wind chill

Thermo Shield – More durable than smooth neoprene, Thermo Shield increases warmth by removing wind chill from the arms

E5 Flash Lining – Two engineered layers that funnel water rapidly out of the suit once it is hung. The warmest and most comfortable lining available.
