    i used to wear a 6/5/4 quiksilver cell prior to having an xcel 5/4/3 (stolen of course). The xcel was just as warm and much more flexible. However, I've only ever surfed north of Jersey and DelMarva once in the winter. As far as the geography I surf in, a good 5/4 is all you will need, even in the frigid cold. If you really wanna be warm, and got the 600 bones to cover it, check out patagonia's hooded 5/4/3 with merino wool lining...the merino wool is what does it for those, supposedly you can survive in the harshest of winters in that thing.

    second that...the XCEL drylock is warm beyond belief...

    as far as hyperflex goes my one experience was not good...bought a pair of 5 mm gloves last winter and they were so cold and leaky from the word go i gave them away to a kid after wearing them 3 times.

    actually your a retard. ripcurl is expensive cause they make good suits. dont rip, dont fill up with water in the legs like hyperflex, just as good as exel if not better

    Rip Curls is expenssive cause of who wears them . Every little grom wants to where what the pros wear. I has a elasto 5/4/3 is lasted on winter I shelled out over 350 dollars for it to last 4 months before seams started ripping and leak Flock that. After that I started using hyperflex suits and can never be happier. I have hyperflex suits rangeing from 6 years old which is my 3/2 fullsuite to my brand new 5/4/3 Flow. My oldest suit still feel jsut as good as it did when I first bought it . Good strech , No leak not even on tear. Only thing that is wrong with it is the lableing is coming off the arm .

    I know guys who have had rip curl suits and all they do is ***** about how they always got to repair them and how the seam leak . I am not talking about a suit that has been threw 3 or four winters. I am saying maybe on winter old. There was a kid out at the north end of OC a few weekd back with a new 5/4/3 f bomb complaining that it has less than 3 months of use and it falling apart already.

    You all your buying when you get name brand suits is the name and paying some sponsers paycheck.
    The only exeption to this is Patagonia. There suits are worth paying for and are made with recycled japanese neoprene and the wool lining is really warm but itchy if your not use to it
