A few steps off the Great Highway and you're paddling out into the shifting peaks of Ocean Beach, where a solid suit is as necessary as a trusted step-up board. The redesigned R3 Front-Zip Hooded Full Suit offers an ideal blend of performance and warmth, with high-quality neoprene and a merino wool lining that offers unmatched strength, warmth and flex. 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 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.
