  • O’Neill Wetsuits Winter 2014 Collection

    As one of the top names in wetsuits, O Neill Wetsuits are always the brand we eagerly await delivery of each season. Forever pushing forward neoprene and wetsuit technology, it’s always exciting to see that new features they’ve added to their wetsuit range, and the winter O Neill Wetsuits collection is another winner!

    When Jack O’Neill founded the company back in 1952 words like ‘Technobutter’ and ‘Firewall’ didn’t exist. Credited with inventing the wetsuit, that was exciting enough back then! Fast forward to their Winter 2014 season and you’ve got a full range of awesome wetsuits for all budgets and all watersports!

    Our surf guys have tried and tested the O Neill Wetsuits range for winter. Here’s our lowdown on the collection.

    The O’Neill Psychofreak Wetsuit

    O'Neill Psychofreak 4.5/3.5 Wetsuit

    What we think about the 2014 O Neill Psychofreak Wetsuit: If there’s one wetsuit that features everything you can sandwich in, then this is it! The Psychofreak is lighter and warmer than any of the other Technobutter range suits, yet it’s thinner….? Less is more and the Psychofreak is just that - it’s cooking, its flexible, try it believe it!

    The O'Neill Psycho 3 Wetsuit

    O'Neill Psycho 3 5/3 Wetsuit

    What we think about the 2014 O Neill Psycho 3 Wetsuit: O'Neill set an almighty standard when the Psycho series first came out (from day one our best selling premium suit was the Psycho 2) and now they have pushed the bar up another notch! The Psycho series is all about flexibility and performance. O'Neill have made the new Psycho 3 with their new Technobutter rubber, which is 17% lighter than before. Weight has also been reduced using a new narrower liquid sealed seam - the SuperSeam.  Not forgetting a cosy warm Firewall core and ZEN Zip system protecting the zip from coldwater flush. If your goal is to have the most flexible performance wetsuit on the market, then the Psycho 3 will not disappoint!

    The O'Neill Psycho RG8 Wetsuit

    O'Neill Psycho RG8 5/3mm Winter Wetsuit

    What we think about the 2014 O Neill Psycho RG8 Wetsuit: The O'Neill RG8 5/3 takes the Psycho series a step further using the FUZE front zip to maximise stretch in the upper body plus incorporating recycled materials. This wetsuit is at the forefront of wetsuit technology. If flexibility is everything and you want to start doing a bit more for the planet via your surfing, then look no further than the RG8 this winter.

    The O'Neill Pyrotech Wetsuit

    O'Neill Pyrotech 5/3 Wetsuit

    What we think about the 2014 O Neill Pyrotech Wetsuit: What started as the idea for a chest zip Psycho wetsuit became the RG8, which then demanded an upgrade to the new Technobutter neoprene. The result is the latest innovative chest zip winter suit – the Pyrotech. Lighter, stronger, super-sealed and featuring all the great Technobutter awesomeness of suit shredding weight and a new Technobutter Firewall lining too - we think this could be the surprise of the season!

    The O'Neill Mutant Wetsuit

    O'Neill Mutant 5/4 Wetsuit

    What we think about the 2014 O Neill Mutant Wetsuit: The O’Neill Mutant just got even better. Still offering the Modular hood closure system, the Mutant remains one of the most versatile cold water suits available, but with the introduction of full 100% Ultraflex neoprene throughout, this suits performance has been boosted, without compromising warmth. O’Neill have also updated the graphics and style of the Mutant for this season, and it looks great! If you need a go-to suit to seal out the cold this winter, you won’t find much better than the Mutant with its Modular Closure System and watertight Single Fluid Seam Welds.

    The O'Neill Psycho 1 Wetsuit

    O'Neill Psycho 1 5/3 Wetsuit - O'Neill Wetsuits

    What we think about the 2014 O Neill Psycho 1 Wetsuit:  The Psycho 1 is made from O'Neill's super-stretch premium Technobutter neoprene and loaded with features - all for just £200! It's a simple design, featuring a durable full double lined construction (so you know its gonna last). The Psycho 1 also features a barrier system to keep cold water from flushing the zip and standard back zip entry, meaning easy on and off if you're not a fan of chest zip wetsuits.  This is a staff favourite and one of the best performing winter wetsuits we have seen for the price.

    The O'Neill Hooded Superfreak Wetsuit

    O'Neill Superfreak 5/4 Hooded Wetsuit

    What we think about the 2014 O Neill Hooded Superfreak Wetsuit: The Superfreak remains unrivalled in terms of performance and value for money, but is also now offered in a 5/4 hooded version for Winter 2013/14. The addition of the hood combined with O’Neill’s F.U.Z.E closure system makes for a super sealed and comfortable suit that with the increased thickness means this suit can still perform in even the coldest of conditions. We’re talking those deepest, darkest, winter sessions.  All this combined with the FluidFlex Firewall in the front chest and back ensure maximum heat retention along with wind protection. This is the warmest spec suit ever offered at this price range.

    The O'Neill Superfreak Wetsuit

    O'Neill Wetsuits - Superfreak 5/3

    What we think about the 2014 O Neill Superfreak Wetsuit: This is our staff favourite and already selling like hot cakes! A really clean design - smooth body panels to combat windchill and O'Neill's mega flexible chest zip design, giving great upper body flexibility, seams are sealed to keep cold water out and all this for £149.99. This, for us, makes the Super Freak Fuze 5/3mm this winter's bargain. Buy one now before our staff do!

    The O'Neill Epic Wetsuit

    O'Neill Wetsuits Epic 5/4

    What we think about the 2014 O Neill Epic Wetsuit: The newly updated Epic series boasts some stylish new looks and colour ways along with some very credible features for winter 2013-14, whilst still keeping this suit bang on budget. First off, O’Neill have opted to construct the Epic series entirely from 100% Ultraflex neoprene, meaning greater flexibility and comfort than ever before seen at this price, and secondly they have combined this with increasing the suits thickness to 5/4mm. The result is a highly manoeuvrable suit that ensures maximum warmth. If you are on a budget, you aren’t going to find a more feature-full suit at this price to keep you warm in the water this winter.
