We stand behind everything we make, including our wetsuits. But wetsuits require care if they are going to perform and wear the way they were intended. Patagonia is not responsible for wetsuits that are abused or show normal wear and tear over time. Scratches and fading are inevitable, as are tears from the occasional close call with a fin.

Product Information
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.
