In the shallows between a short john and a full-on fullsuit, the Rip Curl Men’s E-Bomb CZ Short-Sleeve Full 2/2 Wetsuit is a spring-weight wettie that provides just enough coverage and insulation to comfortably ride the waves that roll in between the bracing mid-60s to mid-70s Fahrenheit. Rip Curl constructed this suit with industry-leading super-light, super-stretch E4 neoprene, 20% lighter than the previous generation of E3, with better insulating properties and flexibility. With E4 in the performance areas–the arms, legs, and shoulders–and E3 in the body, the suit also features a v-cut seam across the back for full-torque flex. All seams are triple-glued and double-blindstitched, keeping water penetration to a minimum. The chest entry features a shock-corded zip closure that, along with the adjustable Hydro-loc collar, prevents the suit from flushing, keeping the cold water out and the warm in. High abrasion panels on the knees protect the neoprene, and a solid build throughout ensures durability. For an excellent balance between warmth and performance, ride the crispest swells in confident comfort in the E-Bomb.
