Agree. My 5/4 hooded Dawn Patrol, 2nd or 3rd season, still works great. Maybe at the price point you are not expecting great things, but the write up on the updated version makes it sound even better. Just a dependable suit.I really like the Dawn Patrol 5/4, very warm as warms my Xcel but more flexible. Its lasting a long time too.
this oneWow. that is their top-of-the-line suit? 3/2? Chest-zip or zipperless?
I've been using my Vissla 4/3 lately, and after surfing a couple days in row, reminded the difference a zipper makes in how sore my shoulders get. I miss the freedom (and comfiness) of the RC Flashbomb zipperless. Once you've paddled with one, it's honestly hard to go back to a chest-zip. My next 3/2 will definitely be zipperless- either rip curl or vissla.
