This Is The Sexiest Wetsuit On The Market

FERAL Wetsuits are a wetsuit test and office favorite.

The FERAL almost won the award for most comfortable in our wetsuit test.

They came a close close runner-up, but O’Neill’s Technobutter 3 technology is just so damn silky and malleable that they took the win. 

With that said, today marks the official Stab announcement that the backzip is, in fact, back. It’s just the way trends go, backzips were the go-to 20 years and behind, then the chest zip came around. It was new. It was exciting, and most importantly, it was sold on a merit of less-leakage. 

Suddenly, all brands went the way of the chest zip, then zipperless and the backzip was all but forgotten, delegated to the Malibu and San Onofre car parks, to be worn by those reverent of styles past. 


After Noah Wegrich, Blair Conklin, Jesse Guglielmana and I spent five days sampling more neoprene than we’d ever want to wear again, we all unanimously voted the FERAL Backzip as the best looking wetsuit on the market. 

To be frank, FERAL makes a damn fine suit.

Personally, I’ve been in one for the past few seasons and recommend it to anyone looking for a good piece of rubber. They’re made from Yamamoto Japanese Neoprene, but unlike most suits made from the same material, FERAL’s price point is low, $325USD for a 3/2mm and $375mm for the 4/3mm. They’re a no frills suit. No wild names or different variations – they’re 3/2mm is goes by 3/2mm. The 4/3mm is a 4/3mm and so on. 

Feral give you high quality rubber, well-taped seams, and are brand that once you wear one; you may never wear another.
