    Winter Rubber

    Hey guys just looking to get some wetsuit advice. I finally have a few bucks to drop on a nice winter suit. I want something I can wear from december to march. In the past I have toughed it out in my 3/2 with 5mil gloves and booties. Should I check out the local inventory, or go with an online retailer?

    Thanks

    your going 5/4/3 right?

    Assuming you are and you have the $$ your first choice should be an xcel.

    i say that with a local shop you can try it on. with online you may save some money though. if you have the money support the local shops but if you do not go to an online dealer. I would recomend a Rip Curl F-Bomb. I would get that if I had the money but hyperflex is cheap well made locally

    having had 2 f-bombs, i would stay away from them. for whatever reason, Rip Curl can't seem to get their fluid welded seam technology right and I've had torn seams on both suits. they are warrantied for sure but it sucks to send them back when you've got a macking swell on the way.

    I bought a 6/5/4mm Hyperflex FLOW Hooded Wetsuit from wetsuitwarehouse.com last winter and it's been great. Used it plenty of times, and its cheap. Oh and I got a 6/5/4 because I like to stay extra warm.
