“falls apart after 1season”

Written on: 07/09/2013 by andylb (1 review written)

Really warm suit but after one season the leg seams went first-lots of the black stuff and patches for repairs. Now the neck has gone totally unrepairable. Rubbish durability… Read Full Review

“Good design, poor materials”

Written on: 11/04/2013

Really warm suit and super stretchy. The hood/neck seal idea is good but you can get flushing through the quite short zip system when using the hood. Overall very warm in uk winter (sea temps 7-8 degrees C)BUT seams and edges started to part and fray within 6 months and I'm spending a fortune on black gue stuff to stick patches of old suit over the rips. It'll keep me going another season- just I hope… Read Full Review

“cheap materials”

Written on: 12/03/2013

was a great suit in the beggining i have it for about 3 or 4 months ivebeen wearing it about once a week or twice a weak and the materials on the inside are garbage! yeh its super stretchy but from normal wear and tare the inside layers are stretching to the point where its getting ripped thats not suppose to happen to a 350 dollar suit or even a 100 dollar suit at the end of the day it keeps you nice and toasty in any weather but why the hell do oniel deserve credit for that thats what its… Read Full Review

“great suit”

Written on: 01/03/2013

Used this for the last couple of days West Coast of Ireland. Superb suit, better than my old psycho ii which was the best i ever had before. It is the devil to get out of though, and can get really painful if you're a fat old fella like myself. Surprisingly light, virtually no water flush. Hood works well, though i hate wearing hoods. Would recommend as main winter suit… Read Full Review

“these wetties suck!!!”

Written on: 04/12/2011 by lakeslakesy (1 review written)

o'neill mutant wetties are bad!! complete waste of money!! flush through the entry system because o'neill didn't see fit to use elastic draw string!! had to sow some in myself. all the seams fell apart after 18 months. granted when new it was warm and comfortable but that only lasted 6 months!! if you want a decent wettie buy an e-bomb!! same price,last way way way longer,lighter and way more stretchy!!!… Read Full Review

“I grew up near Santa Cruz and I hated Oneil wetsuits...”

Written on: 14/02/2011

I grew up near Santa Cruz and I hated Oneil wetsuits because I found them to be too trendy with features that didn't work or last. I love the front zip approach and Xcel stopped standing by it's products so the local surf shop owner recommended the Mutant. O'neil? No way! He convinced me and I ended up convincing all my friends. Warm, flexible, light, hood or no hood, when it is nearly new you will barely notice water seeping in. It is NOT tough to get into this suit for a normal sized guy… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/09/2010

I'm surprised that so many people have had difficulty getting in & out of this suit. Granted, it takes a little getting used to if you've previously only worn budgie smugglers! I've had suits from nineplus, second skin, billabong, rhino & other o'neills that were all more difficult. V happy with this suit; I've had no flushing, plenty of flexibility, & sessions where the last thing you're thinking about is the suit. Just please GET THE RIGHT SIZE! If it's snug in the shop, remember that it… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/05/2010

I have had the Mutant now for about 18 months and it is definately the best suit i've ever had! The fit of the Mutant is incredible and is superlight and absolutely toasty even in the deepest UK winter. Hardly get a dribble of flush through and any flush you get is wicked away in seconds! Uber flexible and easy to put on with a bit of practise. The hood is awesome, it stays in place and is totally adjustable. The material and design of the Mutant is incredible particularly the neck-seal which… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/05/2010 by weedwabit (1 review written)

Have used my 5/4 mutant all over the British Isles for the past 18 months, warm hardwearing excellent quality suit. Ideal all year suit for me from Thurso in the depths of winter to the Outer Hebrides in summer on either a sub a fish or a sponge. No complaints & stands up next to my West lotus which is the best suit I've ever owned, make the purchase you could do a lot worse :-)… Read Full Review

“I've had an O'Neill Mutant for the last two years and...”

Written on: 26/11/2009

I've had an O'Neill Mutant for the last two years and am getting another. I have yet to see or hear of another suit that is as warm or flexible for the money. The seams are still intact after two years hard use with no signs of cracking or detachment from the neoprene material. It is really comfortable to wear but an absolute b**t**d to get out of, certainly the first few times! The detachable hood is great though I only felt the need to wear it a few times.
Overall it allows you to stay longer… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/11/2009

A good suit, great idea with the ability to change from hooded to no hood. But the neck does not have any ability to tighten, so for me at, least water gets in through the collar bone area. It is very flexible and warm. The opening to get in and out of is smaller than the other chest zip xcel's I've had so I'm kinda worried I might tear it open but hopefully not… Read Full Review

The O'Neill Mutant Wetsuit is the best suit I've ever owned by far. Last two suits were pretty good but this blows them away! sooo warm and really flexible, plus can change to a hood if needs be (or soft). Only negative is it's a bit hard to get out of, but still hands down the best suit I've ever owned… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/02/2009

maybe it's just because it's a brand new wetsuit, but my O'Neill Mutant felt more like a dry suit! Didn't get wet for like the first 30 min, then when I finally felt wet, it was warm water. SUPER lightweight & flexible! Super stoked.
Every once in a sesh some cold water will leak into the upper back, guess there's two holes where collier attaches, but still an awesome suit!… Read Full Review

It's super warm, firewall back is damn fine. interchangable hood/kneck, overall fit. Closing off zip is set abit to high (down at front just 1 inch would be sweet)… Read Full Review

“The O'Neill Mutant Wetsuit is great. I sell this...”

Written on: 11/12/2008

The O'Neill Mutant Wetsuit is great. I sell this wetsuit, own it and wear it everyday. The person below saying he couldn't get in and out of the wetsuit easily obviously hasn't worn a chest zip before and still is non the wiser on how to get in and out of one. The trick is to pull one side of the wetsuit over your elbow, this then releases your arm and then your out! Simple

Great wetsuit had mine now for 3 years and its still good… Read Full Review
