Spend a week scoring uncrowded waves in Alaska with the right suit, and you’ll start to think that warm water is way overrated. The redesigned R4® Front-Zip Hooded Full Suit is the warmest wetsuit we offer, with high-quality neoprene and a merino wool and polyester lining that offers unmatched warmth, strength and flex. Features include new anatomical patterning, 100% external seam sealing to eliminate leaks, a heavyweight wool in the torso and thighs to maximize warmth, and a new midweight wool lining in the hood, sleeves and lower legs for increased performance and stretch. With simplified entry, redesigned 3-panel hood and enlarged PVC-free kneepads for long-lasting durability. Critical seams and high-stress areas are secured and reinforced for strength.
