Billabong has completely revamped the Foil line of wetsuits this year, and they did a really nice job for the price point! This wetsuit features 100% superstretch neoprene for excellent flexibility in the water. They beefed up the stretch by adding top of the line "ZG300" superflex to critical pivot points, and eliminating some unnecessary seam panels. A new water resistant zipper, combined with internal zip flaps resist flushing. Durable flatlock seams will take a lot of abuse, and are fine for moderate water temps. We also carry the SEALED seam version of the same suit if you need some additional flush protection for colder temps. Also features: chafe resistant collar, adjustable neck, internal key loop, and durable kneepads.
Every Billabong wetsuit is made of the finest quality materials and workmanship. Proper care will insure many happy seasons of use. Please be sure to rinse your suit with fresh water and hang out to dry. A number of wetsuit care products can be found on our Wetsuit Accessories page. As always,try to avoid contact with sharp and/or abrasive objects. Billabong wetsuits come with a limited 12 month warranty on materials and workmanship.

Thank you Wetsuit Wearhouse!
I purchased this wetsuit for my 23 year old son for Christmas. I knew nothing about wetsuits but learned a lot from the website and from speaking to customer service. I Thought the website was better than any other on wetsuits. My son is 6ft. 2 in. and weighs a mere 140 lbs. I initially looked at the small tall but after speaking to the wearhouse on the phone opted for the med. tall. It arrived in the mail quickly and the free shipping was a bonus. It fit my son perfectly and was superbly constructed. I felt confident that if it didn't fit right or if there was something wrong with it an exchange would be simple. Thank you Wetsuit Wearhouse

The suit is great. It fits well. The only thing to point out is that the company initially send me one with a broken zipper. When I called the company, they send me a new one with a return shipping label and take of me immediately. It is ok that we receive defective product once in awhile. The most important thing is the this company take action immediately and correct the mistake. Will definitely shop with them for my future wetsuit needs. Also, super fast shipping. Great product, great company! Highly recommended.
fits and looks great for the price
great suits for the price
I bought 2 of them; for off the rack suits, size XXL fits my upper body perfectly, i.e., not too tight, not loose, good flexibility, no pinching, etc. The quality of the stitching is good, the knee pads are truly padded and not those crappy iron-on pasties you get with the "deal of the day" suits. You do get what you pay for. I use the suits for surfing/diving California waters. Since I try to live in the water on weekends (the only time I get to have fun in the ocean), one is drying while the other is being used. I have had no problems staying warm in these suits, even in windy, choppy conditions where you definitely stay wet on the board. Overall, I expect these suits to perform well and last a good 5 years.
Got this one a few weeks ago. First off, the good -
Fits well (I am 6'1, 175 and got the MT. Fits nice and snugly)
No chaffing, etc around the neck
Nice and stretchy - I didn't get too tired paddling around in it.
Now the bad -
I wore this on a 58 degree day in late summer when the water was still about 69-70 degrees. I surfed for about 2 hours, but after that I started to get pretty cold. Air temp was definitely cool, but the water was relatively warm.
I found the zipper really hard to get on, in fact I broke it the second time I tried to wear zip it up. I did send it back to Billabong and they returned it with a new zipper free of charge about 10 days later (pretty quick as I live in NY and their shop is in CA.)
Overall I would say if you don't stay out for more than 3 hours at a session and surf in water in the high 60's, this is a good suit for the price (just be careful with the zipper). If you are surfing for longer periods (especially with cooler air temps), spend a few more bucks.
Great fit, helpful staff
First full wetsuit and wasn't sure size to order so called and talked to a really helpful guy. I'm 6'1" 175lb ordered Large Tall and it's a great fit though haven't been in the water with it yet.
Good fit, good price. Easy to pack and put on. Perfect for snorkeling;

I have not been able to use the suit yet (temperatures went directly from winter to summer). Suit fits great. I'm 5'-8.5" 145 lbs and I got a MS (just below the limit in height). However, if you are at the limit in height, you probably want to get the next size up. Service from wetsuit wearhouse is always the best.
I own a 5/4/3 in this model and now a 3/2 in this model and am extremely happy with both. The fit is alittle snug for the stated size but the suit(s) is/are warm, flex well and are extremely comfortable. I've used the 5/4/3 in the dead of winter in NJ in 34 degree water and the 3/2 in 60 degree water and was able to stay out with no problems. I did note on the 3/2 that I've experienced a "dump" of water in the area of my low back at the zipper which I did not experience in the 5/4/3. i would recommend this suit to anyone considering it (actually sent back an Xcel suit and purchased this suit instead - the Xcel was like taping razor blades to my neck. The designs, specifically the neck, of these suits is second to none)
Suit fits and looks great. Waited 4 business days to get it. Thanks.
