Nice and warm it could have a bit more flex in the shoulders and the hood seemed much tighter than my 4/3 from you. Overall very happy

Excellent wetsuits!

I am extremely happy with my purchase of the needessentials 54 hooded and 43 Yulex wetsuits! The sizing is correct, they are very thin and maneuverable, very warm and zero branding on the outside of the wetsuits. It’s cool to see they are one of the few companies with a natural rubber option as well. I appreciate the effort towards being people and Earth conscious as well. Thank you! See you in the water.

5/4 hooded for phillip island winter

The 5/4 hooded wetsuit makes surfing on Phillip Island in winter nice and warm which is a relief to know that when you get back from yearly Indo trip you're still able to surf in comfort. Flex and stretch in the neoprene is soooo good that there's not much difference between the summer suit. (I have 2 hooded suits so that one is always dry)
