O'Neill Mutant 4/3 Men's Wetsuit 17/18 4761
O'Neill Mutant 4/3 Men's Wetsuit 4761
Accept no limitations. New for 2017/18, O’Neill’s unique Modular Closure system with new dual cinch on the neck and hood closures seals out water. This makes the Mutant the most versatile wetsuit in our line. The Mutant is constructed of UltraFlex DS and TechnoButter Firewall in the front and back, making it warmer and more flexible than ever before. Two suits in one, now go get some.
All Mutant wetsuits come with both the neck and hood attachments.
Water Temp: 47 - 60
Air Temp and Wind: 30 - 75
Excellent stretch, flex and water rating. Good Wind and Air. Good durability. Best suited for frigid to cold water and cold to moderate air temps down to the low 40's with light to moderate wind. The O'Neill Mutant is basically an O'Neill Psycho 1 with a chest zip.
HBC Quick Review: 16/17 O'Neill Mutant 4/3 Model 4761
Why is the O'Neill Mutant easier to paddle, because zippers don't stretch. When you eliminate that back zipper, you get a whole new direction of stretch in a wetsuit and it's amazing how much easier it is to paddle in a chest zip than a back zip. Another thing that the O'Neill Mutant all but eliminates is the duck-dive flush. Without the zipper flap, you don't have a gap in the neck for water to enter and that means you stay drier and warmer. The one drawback to the O'Neill Mutant wetsuit is getting in and out of the suit. I have a 42" chest and wear a MS wetsuit and getting in and out of the suit, especially the first few times, can be a challenge, but with all the added benefits, it's something I am willing to do. Overall, the O'Neill Mutant is an excellent wetsuit that's going to keep you warm while staying flexible.
There are a few new changes to the 4761 model Mutant. There's now a flap of neoprene over the zipper, on the front and the back, to help keep even more water out! There's also the new Technobutter Firewall, which really makes a big difference over the DS firewall from the previous model. It's lighter, warmer, and a little more flexible. And O'Neill hasn't said anything about it, but I swear the new fluid seams seem more flexible than in the past models.

Does this come with the hood?
Yes, all of the Mutant wetsuits come with both the hood and neck attachments.
Can I get a different size hood?
No. The sizes have different lengths of attachment, but you could get a larger or small size hood, but there art better suits if you go that route.
