  • never used the f-bomb so i can't entirely answer your question but i've been using the rip curl zipperless for years. they rule. easy to get into, a little tricky to get out of, but once you figure it out it's not bad.

  • yea.. i think the F is a little warmer 'cause of that fleece lining stuff.. but it adds a little inflexibility imho..  E feels more flexible to me.. but i ended up buying the F anyway.

    No, the A-Bomb is Little Nasty's old wetsuit.

    Doh!
    So heavy you can't even pick it up.

  • it's all about which brand fits you the best..  real estate is all about location, location, location... wetsuits are all about fit, fit, fit

  • yeah the right wetsuit for you is the one that fits you best...one problem i've heard from several people regarding xcel is that the arms and legs tend to ride up to the point that the suit is above the gloves/boots.
