Dawn Patrol 5/4mm Chest Zip Hooded
Our Take:The Dawn Patrol has been our mid-level staple for the past few years. It is a no-frills suit that has just enough features to be warm and flexible without fully breaking the bank. If you want a simple suit that will keep you warm at a base level, this is a great choice. We highly recommend it as one of our favorite New England 3/2s because of the price/performance tradeoff that is more than acceptable for our short summers.
What They Say:
The Rip Curl Dawn Patrol 5/4 Chest Zip Wetsuit is the right suit at the right price for anyone wanting durability and performance on a budget. The Dawn Patrol uses warm, long-lasting E4 Thermoflex Neoprene and a thermal lining throughout the body. E5 Neoprene, which is high stretch and lightweight, is used in the arms and shoulders. High-stress areas are secured internally with E5 Tape, and a wind-blocking Mesh Skin Chest Panel with internal E5 Flash lining helps retain heat, providing extra warmth to the core. The ultimate offering of quality featured at an insanely affordable price, the easy back zip entry and highly durable construction of the Dawn Patrol Wetsuit make it a favorite option no matter what you're paddling into.
