The World’s First Heated Wetsuit: The Rip Curl H-Bomb (video)
Die hard surfers surf year round regardless of the weather, here in SoCal that is. And yes, despite our southern location it does get quite frigid at times. So what’s a surfer to do? Enter Rip Curl’s H-Bomb heated wetsuit.
Powered by two Lithium-ion, 7.4 volt batteries, the H-Bomb has a set of carbon fiber heating coils that can produce up to 3 hours of body warming heat on a single charge. Because they’re made of carbon fiber they’re flexible and won’t corrode if exposed to the water.
But like all things ultra cool (or hot in this case) there’s a significant cost to entry: $1,000.
