Rip Curl has some of the best women riders on their team so its no surprise that their suits offer unparalleled warmth and stretch in designs that keep you strong and confident in the water. The Rip Curl Women's Dawn Patrol 5/3 Back Zip Wetsuit is a great entry-level wetsuit for its combined performance features of warmth and durability and the back zip entry system is slightly easier than a chest zip if you're new to getting in and out of a wetsuit. This model also includes a batwing system providing a barrier between back zip and body to minimize leakage and flushing.
This wetsuit has many of hte high end features of Rip Curls Ultimate suits including E5 Flash Lining, E5 neoprene, and E4 Thermoflex Lining. The large front and back panels of E5 flash lining is the world's fastest drying. This paired with the E4 Thermo will keep you warm and comfortable. High stress areas are secured with E5 tape to keep you as confident in the long term durability of the suit as you are comfortable in the water.
