Perfect Blend of Form + Function

Beautiful wetsuit made even more so by its sustainable construction and excellent performance. Will only be buying wetsuits from this line in the future. Was perfect for a day of January diving and snorkeling in Nassau and will be my go-to wetsuit for diving in that area in the future.

Perfect Morning Suit for 60F water

This is the perfect Central California (San Francisco) summer suit. Outstanding warmth, flexibility and environmentally sound design. I am a customer for life!

Much improved

Always wanted a lighter full suit and Bought this suit three years ago and the fit was terrible so returned it. Much improved and now I do recommend it.

What an awesome suit!

This suit is fantastic. I'm 6'1", 170 lbs and bought a size large. The fit is great, the construction is top notch, and it dries super fast. Some reviewers said it felt scratchy and I can see what they mean but you don't feel that at all when you're in the water and it's negligible when you're not. So far this sum... Read Moremer the water in SoCal has been in the low 60s and this suit is super comfortable. I'm stoked about the warranty on this thing and proud to wear something that is more environmentally conscious than traditional wetsuits. Keep up the great work. Highly recommend.

Materials Need Work

I'm a big fan of Patagonia and use their gear almost daily, however this wetsuit wasn't up to their usual standard. The primary problem I experienced was that the wetsuit materials used felt abrasive/scratchy against the skin. I've had several wetsuits over the years (including Patagonia), so I believe I have a reasonable sense of ho... Read Morew a suit should feel. The first time I tried the suit on, I immediately experienced the abrasiveness, but thought it might go away while surfing or with time, but after using the suit a few times, the problem was persistent and I opted to return it.

Thin and warm.!

This wetsuit is amazingly warm and stretchy.. I am going to see how long I can wear it into the winter SUP surf season..

Comfortable, Warm, Seems Lasting(?).

6'3, 175lbs, 31/32" waist. Using a LT size suit. When the suit is on very comfortable! Sizing for a LT is a little on the short side, chest and leg inseam could use another 1". LT inseams usually around 34" not the 31"-33" pat has. So this suit occasionally can be too snug on the fellas (from the short chest/legs). Als... Read Moreo the suit's entry is very narrow. I have a hard time with my skinny frame getting my shoulders in, and an impossible time getting this off. I think Pat in hindsight forgot that surfers have broad shoulders and should have made the suit entry a little wider. That said the suit is very stretchy and I can squirm in, suit feels good with the tightness. Only worried about stretching it too much and it only lasting like a season. Suit is rated for 65-75*F temps. Honestly this thing is hot! And I produce a lot of body heat, but I like using this at around 50-70*F. Comfortable at either end. Very comfortable, cuffs at ankle and wrist are somewhat tight, would love to see some kind of inner grip/grit built in to help retain to gloves and booties. All the seams are pretty good, don't look like I'll have any issue with them. The cuff around the neck is nice, tight! But, not like those rubber gasket tight that make you feel like your choking while surfing. A soothing warm tight lol. Last complaint is the width of the webbing on the interior of the neoprene is the perfect size for sand to get in and settle. Worried about the sand grinding the suit from the inside out. Been cleaning the sand every-time I use but theres always a bunch stuck in the fibers. No suit rash or hotspots yet. Used about 15x this spring/summer.
