XCEL Hawaii 4/3 Infiniti X-Zip Wetsuit - Women's - 2012 BCS
If you're looking for an easy-entry and easy-exit suit for cold conditions, then you need not look further than the XCEL Hawaii Women's 4/3 Infiniti X-Zip Wetsuit. Its upper chest zip reduces flushing when you dive and allows greater stretch at the back as you paddle, stand, and twist.
- X-Zip system features a water-resistant Interlock zipper on the outer front flap that virtually eliminates flushing common with a back zip design
- Ultrastretch neoprene has a flexible, soft feel to allow easier paddling, uninhibited rise-up, and unmatched mobility when you twist to load up for a cut
- ThermoBamboo internal chest lining locks in your body heat during cold mornings and is made with sustainable viscose and recycled fibers
- Fully sealed seams use pressure-bonded taping, double gluing, and blind stitching for durability and to prevent leaks
- Fusion seam technology in the arms and legs offers maximum mobility as seams stretch, but don't break
- Texture Skin on the front and back outer chest helps to resist wind and gusts that rob your heat when you're sitting in the lineup
- Engineered fit features pre-bent Duraflex elbow and knee panels to provide maximum mobility at the joints for an uninhibited range of motion
- This suit will be comfortable in 59F-64F water temperature, and if you're in colder water (54F-59F), add booties

I've only had Infinity X-Zips (3/2 and 4/3) and I love them! I'm 5'11 and my height is in my torso, not my legs - Xcel's are the only suit I've found so far that has a tall that fits me and doesn't gap at my lower back (I get the 8T, but will probably go 10T next time...this new one feels like it pulls down on my shoulders more than my last one...then again, that one was probably stretched out from years of wear). My first 4/3 lasted 3 seasons of regular use (granted, the final season was leaky in the leg and crotch seams, but considering I surf an avg of 4 times a week, that's a pretty good lifespan for a wetsuit).
I just got this one a month ago and I've been SOOO warm! Granted, I surf in San Diego, but this morning it was 44 degree air and around 57 water temp and my body never got cold for the two hours I surfed.
The other great thing about this wetsuit is that it dries really fast. My old one didn't have the bamboo lining they use now and it was never dry by the next day. Drying it in either my garage or inside the house, the inside (I dry it inside out) is 95%-100% dry within 24 hours. Which is awesome because putting on a wet wetsuit in the morning is torture!
I convinced 3 of my O'neill wearing friends to try out Xcel Infiniti's this year and they all fell in love. This is a very warm suit at an amazing price. Thanks DoG!
