I have a 5/4 and a 4/3 Flash Bomb. Love the suits. Only complaint is water comes up the ankles and wrists. Because the flash lining doesn't have the grip and seal of neoprene, water easily seeps in those areas. Im also skinny so that may have something to do with it too.
If they would add a rubber ring or something inside the ankles and wrists lining it would be the BEST suit ever!
A buddy raves about his new RipCurl Flash Bomb Plus 5/4 front zip with new E4 Tech, warm and flexible. I'm with Zippy, the E Bomb much lighter and more flex over the regular Flash Bomb so seems RipCurl solved those issues with the new E 4 as Flash Bomb is supposed to be 20% lighter? I gave up trying to find this suit seems RipCurl sold out of some of these models/sizes until late March or April.
i have a 3/2 e-bomb that i love my buddy got the last flash bomb which i was bummed about till i bought my one ill pyrotech and hands down best suit I've ever had and dries real well also and the techno butter is super gooey
ditto. i wear the e-bomb 5.5/4.5 & it is by far the best winter suit i've worn. it's much lighter & more flexible than my 4/3 flashbomb+, which is a big factor for me since i don't get cold real easily. i'd rather have a more flexible suit than a heavier, warmer suit.
Same here. I wear the 5.5/4.5 ebomb as well. I bought it used in ok shape and am still very impressed with it. I'd buy RipCurl again for sure.
