Thread: Wetsuit Design

    Wetsuit Design

    This winter has been rough on my 4/3 this year and I believe its time to start looking at a new wetsuit. But I wanted to know what people think about 4/3 with a attached hood and one with out. Is there drastic changes with warmth between them and will it restrict the movement of my head?

    I've been surfing the last few weeks in an Xcel 4/3 Infinity drylock with attached hood. Plenty warm in water in the low 40s. Like any hood built into the suit, its more confining than a bonnet hoot, and a whole lot warmer....worthwhile trade off in colder water.
