 X-FLEX 100% stretch neoprene is used in our high performance wetsuits. It gives you maximum freedom of movement, allowing your wetsuit to work with your body without impeding stamina. The latest X-Flex neoprene is 10% lighter, absorbs less water and has a softer, more comfortable feel. The improved X-Flex neoprene also has a lower modus, which means they stretch more without losing their shape and spring.


100% neoprene giving unrestricted range of movement and warmth.


New 4 way stretch high specification knee panels designed to resist the most harsh elements while providing maximum flexion and extension of the knee.



Your wetsuit has been made from carefully selected materials to give the best combination of durability and performance. With the correct care you will gain the maximum life from your suit. Always rinse your suit after use in clean water using a mild detergent if necessary. Pay particular attention to remove any sand or foreign matter from the zips. Please don’t use any solvents or other chemicals to remove stains or marks from your wetsuit as this can cause damage. Do not force zips and if possible get someone to pull up the zips for you, pulling zips up not across. Protect your wetsuit from sharp or abrasive objects. Ensure the suit is the correct size and do not pull the ends of sleeves or legs to remove.

Chae Bruce
Having been a surfer for several decades and having used all the top end,pricey big name surfsuits I'm happy to report that the GUL Viper compares easily with any of them. I think that the quality, fit and attention to detail are brilliant, topline design and materials and at an excellent price. Cheers, Chae Bruce.
Chas Fleming
I have worn the Viper 3/2mm with bolt dry lining about 5 times, it is incredibly warm, almost as warm as the 5mm Viper. I now have 4 GUL wetsuits and they are fantastic value for money.
Mark Blundell
I have been windsurfing for over 20 years using what I thought to be great wetsuits untill I owned one of these. This is the best ever !! Never felt cold and its very comfortable was out yesterday for 5hrs couldn't believe how warm I felt awesome suit! !!
Brian Came
Warm and excellent value for money. Surfed for three and a half hours today in the middle of winter, with a howling offshore wind. Could not feel my feet and toes when i got out but my body was warm. I would give it a 5 star rating but then what do i give future generation Gul wetsuits. Thank you Gul
Logan Beck
The vortex 3.2 is a great suit, The sealed seams actually are watertight and don't breakdown within the 1st month like many others brands! The neoprene has enough flexibility so that no movements are inhibited and is super durable. Overall a fantastic suit with great value for money.
Dave Burton
Hi Mike, and Georgia, Great to meet you yesterday. Thanks for all the advice and the new wetsuit. Just got out today for a kitesurf and suit was awesome. Warm, comfy and absolutely no flush down the neck. Brilliant. Would also echo Chae Bruce's comments re quality. At $200 it's an absolute bargain
jake bradshaw
brought this wet suit for kitesurfing/surfing etc and have found it fantastic warm and really well made even it our cold waters down here in bluff would rather this then my dive suit definately recommend this to anyone wanting a warm all round suit at a great price cheers NZ SAILING
Awesome suit. I would say that it is easilly the best value for money you will find. Used the size guide on line and it is spot on. Probably a bit less flexible than my old one but I suspect that this will have a way better life span. After a few hours in the water the inside was still dry. I can see this will be very nice and warm. Very impressed!!
Ben Goodwin
