The waves haven't changed since guys were surfing in sweaters at Steamer Lane, but these days there's no need to paddle in with shoulders seizing from the cold. With high-quality neoprene and a merino wool lining that provides unmatched warmth, strength and flex, the R3 Back-Zip Full Suit keeps you loose and comfortable in the chilly lineups up north. Features include new anatomical patterning, external sealing on all seams to eliminate leaks, a heavyweight wool lining in the torso and thighs to maximize warmth, and a midweight wool lining in the sleeves and lower legs for increased performance and stretch. The back-zip allows easy on/off, and enlarged PVC-free kneepads provide long-lasting durability. Critical seams and high-stress areas are secured with glue dots, 1cm bartacks and Melco® reinforcements.
