While the Northern Hemisphere suffers through the summer doldrums, the Chilean coast turns Southern Ocean swell into roping, leg-burning left-hand walls. With high-quality neoprene and a merino wool lining that offers trustworthy warmth, strength and flex, redesigned R3® Front-Zip Full Suit keeps you charging until your arms give out from the long laps back to the top of the point. Features include new anatomical patterning, 100% external seam sealing to eliminate leaks, a heavyweight wool lining in the torso and thighs to maximize warmth, and a new midweight wool lining in the sleeves and lower legs for increased performance and stretch. With simplified front-zip entry and enlarged PVC-free kneepads for long-lasting durability. Critical seams and high-stress areas are secured and reinforced for strength. (U.S. Patent No. 7395553)
