The Rip Curl Dawn Patrol Warmth is the ultimate all-round, cold-water wetsuit; it has the features of a top-end suit but with a much more appealing price tag. If you’ve found yourself lusting after Rip Curl’s pricier wetsuits but haven’t had the dollar on hand to splash the cash, this is the suit for you.
Made of super lightweight, high-stretch E5 neoprene, the Dawn Patrol Warmth feels soft and comfortable against your skin, whilst still providing maximum flexibility. The old Dawn Patrol had a tiny E4 Flash Lining panel in the chest, but the new one has a much larger front panel to mirror the back one. As one of the warmest and most comfortable linings available, this means you can stay out on the water for even longer without getting cold. This is a massive upgrade, bringing the suit to almost the same level as a Flashbomb from 2-3 years ago, meaning you're getting the high-end features and quality for a much smaller price-tag. These additional engineered layers also funnel water rapidly out of the suit once it’s hung up, so it’ll dry much quicker than your average wetsuit. Rip Curl have added E5 Tape to all the high-stress points of the wetsuit for increased strength and durability, and the entire suit has been glued and blind stitched to prevent leaking.
Coming in a sleek 3/2mm thickness, 4/3mm or a cosy 5/3mm, there’s a Dawn Patrol Warmth for all weathers. If you’re not sure which thickness you’ll be needing, each of the product pages have a useful wetsuit temperature guide (see below), so you can be sure you’re making the right choice before you buy. The Dawn Patrol Warmth is available with either a chest zip or a back zip, so you can choose whichever you find most comfortable. There are three different colours as well to suit all surfers: a classic charcoal black, a sharp slate grey, and – for those who like a bit of colour – a softer burnt orange.
