Wetsuit Review Of The Billabong Foil.
When it comes to buying an entry level winter wetsuit for men there is plenty to choose from but the features vary a lot.
Billabong have yet again invested in upgrading the foil to produce one of the best most cost effective suits that money can buy. This year the construction is 100% super stretch and the neoprene feels really soft to the touch and once on it really does feel like a second skin. The suit is GBS which means all the seams are stitched then glued together to minimise any water penetration. So what can you use this wetsuit for? I would say any winter water sport where you want flexibility and warmth. Although Billabong is a surf brand the suit can be used for kite surfing, sailing, windsurfing and surfing. The Billabong Foil wetsuit is 5mm of neoprene on the body and 4mm on the arms, this is generally the thickness used in all winter wetsuits. The wetsuit is in either chest or back zip versions depending on your preference.
AX2 Superflex neoprene.
New poly propylene.
Zip entry system.
