It's about time! Our customers have been asking for a cold water wetsuit with a detachable hood for years and O'Neill has stepped up to the plate with the addition of the 5/4mm MUTANT to their lineup. The advantage of this suit is that the hood seals into the suit via the modular collar, no more leaks like with a separate bibbed hood. When it's too warm for a hood, just zip it off and replace the standard collar. The 5/4mm MUTANT is built of 100% UltraFlex DS superstretch neoprene that will gel to your body for maximum flexibility. The modular collar works with the sealed and taped seams and the wrist/ankle seals to keep frigid water from flushing the suit so you can stay out longer. This phenomenal wetsuit also features durable kneepads, a chafe resistant collar, and external key pocket. O'Neill Wetsuits come with a 1 year warranty on materials and craftsmanship (90 days on accessories). You can help keep your wetsuit in great shape for years to come by always rinsing in fresh water and hanging to dry. A number of wetsuit care products can be found on our Wetsuit Accessories page.

However, now for the bad news. It's really difficult to get into and almost impossible to get out of. This suit does not have a zipper. You are supposed to crawl into it from the neck opening like a snake eating a rat. Even with my skinny and flexible frame it took about 10 minutes to get into it (which I admit would probably get faster) but it took about 30 minutes of rolling around on my bed to get out of it. I gave up several times and almost had to call a friend to help me get out but somehow I managed to pop my shoulders out and then slide out.
Again, I am sure I would get faster and getting into and out of it but I don't see how the fabric and seams can hold up to that kind of stretching. I returned it and for just a little bit more money I got a semi-dry suit with zippers.
