Frigid waters and howling ocean winds don't frighten the XCEL Hawaii Men's 4/3 Revolt Wetsuit. As a part of XCEL's top-of-the-line series, this exceptionally warm, light, and flexible fullsuit enables you to surf cold waters comfortably from day break to sunset. Fashioned with Thermo Dry Celiant technology—XCEL's warmest lining ever—this suit retains and recycles your own body heat in order to keep you warm, without the need for a thicker, more restrictive suit.
A textured surface on the chest panel prevents chilly gusts from stealing your precious core warmth on stormy days, which allows you to make the most of those righteous, wind-driven waves. Overlapping neck panels make the X2 entry system incredibly easy to put on, and the SmoothSkin hem seal creates a complete seal to keep water out. Ultrastretch neoprene is super flexible, which makes for unobstructed mobility. It's also equipped with Thermo Dry-sealed GBS seams to provide durability and limit water entry, without sacrificing stretch. DryLock wrist seals with inner Nexskin bands minimize flushing while creating a comfortable feel.

Great build, hard to get in and out of
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
My 1st ever return to Backcountry in 10 or so years -- so easy and hassle free! Read why so maybe you don't have to return :)
The suit is well made with great stretchy outer neoprene and a warm fleece like lining. I was very mobile for a 4/3, and I'm sure it would have kept me toasty in Northern California bay and coastal waters for windsurfing and skiffing. But...
it was my first front-zip wetsuit, and not quite what I had expected. I have a Bare drysuit that is back zip -- I crawl through the 3' wide zipper, pull the top over my head, zip up -- no problem. This Xcel front zip however is a little different -- you don't have the full width of the zipper. It's a little hard to explain, but there is an inner section that has maybe a one foot wide opening, then the zipper flap goes over that. So you have a relatively small opening through which to get your legs, hips, shoulders through. Since it's narrow, the next challenge is to get each arm through and into the sleeves. I was able to get into it myself, barely -- but getting out was the bigger challenge. Since I windsurf by myself frequently, the suit was a non starter for that reason.
The 2nd reason -- given I had to stretch the upper opening ~150% to get in, I just didn't believe it could withstand that kind of abuse for very long without tearing. Too bad, I really liked the materials and workmanship.
I'm 5'9.5" 170 32" waist with fairly broad shoulders. If narrower shoulders, maybe it would've worked for me.
