Nobody wants to surf in a cold wetsuit. That iss why the XCEL 5/4 Infiniti TDC Hooded Wetsuit is the surfers choice for comfort and mobility in chilly water. Advanced Thermo Dry Celliant material in the core keeps essential warmth in and FusionX tape is heat-pressure bonded to the seams for an excellent seal where it counts. A semi-dry zipper with magnetic closure and triple glued and blind stitched seams mean the XCEL 5/4 Infiniti TDC Hooded Wetsuit is a serious piece of insulation technology for the cold water enthusiast.
Nanoprene Lite Japanese Limestone Neoprene - Nanoprene Lite uses earth-minded limestone to replace processed petrochemicals in the neoprene for a reduced dependence on petroleum. It is soft, light, warm, and has unrivaled memory and rebound.
Thermo Dry Celliant (TDC) Upper Body - A mineral-based fiber woven into a smart textile increases blood flow to muscle tissue by transferring the body's naturally produced heat.
Plush Thermo Lite [Lower Body] - A thermo-generating yarn maximizes warmth without adding weight.
100% Performance Stretch Neoprene - A multi-directional weave with Spandex blended for superior stretch and performance.
Dope-Dyed Yarn - Dope-dying infuses dye pigments into a molten plastic solution to produce colored yarns without the dyeing process. This saves tremendous amounts of water while reducing energy consumption and water pollution.
Water-Based Glue - XCEL turned solvent-based laminating glue into water-based glue, eliminating harmful, volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
Semi-Dry Zipper with Magnetic Closure - A zip closure with a silicone strip helps to prevent suit flushing.
Back Knee Flex Grooves - Articulated pre-bent knee with grooves to prevent folding and bunching.
Engineered Fit Design

Triple Glued and Blind Stitched Seams - A water-tight seam construction where foam edges are glued multiple times before being slammed together creating an air and water tight seal, then stitched a quarter way through the foam to give it the strength needed.
Fusion X Seam Tape - The next generation precision tape technology, applied by a machined heat-pressure process which bonds tape directly to suit ensuring maximum seam durability while eliminating the need for excess glue that causes irritation.
Glide Skin Collar - A durable, smooth skin collar creates a water-tight seal to prevent flushing.
