    So we are in mid-late January. Anyone have any updates on their new purchases? Particularly an F-Bomb reports? Looking at a few new winter suits since mine is shot and have had my eye on the RC F-bomb/e-bomb and the Quiksilver Cypher. I know it's been flat for a while, but, someone must be out paddling around.

    The most extreme example with my E-Bomb 5/4 I have is from late December (16 degree air, low 40s water, howling W winds) I was surfing a beach south of Portland, ME for three or so hours and I never shivered once, never felt restricted. Highly recommended. I even picked up an 3/2 E-Bomb because I like it so much.

    Thanks. Happy to hear that. I was actually looking pretty hard at the 5.5/4.5. I am still looking at the possibility of doing a quality 4/3 and grabbing a vest/hood combo for winter. Think I'd cover late fall, winter and early spring with that setup in NJ. But I really do like the thought of not shivering after a few hours of go time. Years ago I would just deal with a 4/3 straight thru the winter and be unable to move by the time I got out of the water. Getting to be a bit of a puss as I am getting older and value my warmth a bit more now!

    The suit is super flexible. You will hardly notice the extra bit of rubber movement-wise and you'll be happy to have it warmth-wise!

    Sweeeet. I was concerned about the 5.5/4.5 being a little more restrictive due to the added rubber. Also didn't know if it was overkill for NJ. Was really considering the most versatile setup that I can pull off, hence a good 4/3 for fall/spring and maybe adding a hooded vest for the extra insulation for winter. Still have some homework to do, and this thread is making the decision all the more complicated. BUT, knowing that the e-bomb is nice and toasty does make me feel pretty good about it.

    Love my new 5/4 ebomb, don't even notice the extra rubber, super stretchy, and super warm, i recommend it. But on a day like yesterday it was a little too warm, don't know if I would want it to be my only oct thru may option. (tho too warm is better than too cold)

    How's the sizing Gnar, I was considering one, but was fortunate to find a patagonia r3 for 1/2 price in my size. Was sketchy on ordering a suit without trying it on first.

    its great, actually perfect. I was actually talking with buell himself and he was telling me how the big wetsuit companies (xcel, ripcurl, quiksilver ect) try to make their suits leaner to make them look more aesthetically pleasing, but his are more true to how the actual body is. I usually feel kind of uncomfortable the 1st few times wearing a new wetsuit on land, usually my pits are hurting until i get into the water, but the buell literally feels like a second skin. stoked on it. I got a MS, then traded it in for a M and it fits amazing, maybe a TAD big but i like that so i can grow into it. I mean it fits really really nicely. I'm 5'8.5 158 and it feels like butter. people, look into them - they are BUILT TO LAST

    BTW: Swellinfo, the wetsuit guide (recommended suit for the conditions) is a sick sick sick addition to the site. Nice job!
