Patagonia Men's R2? Yulex? Front-Zip Hooded Full Wetsuit

Really love my wetsuit but minor concern

So I've been using mine for about a month now and I really enjoy it. I surf in San Diego, and it has kept me warm pretty much from sept-nov and I think it will continue to do so throughout the colder months. The only negative I can say is that it seems to be wearing down a bit at specific points where my body is in contact with the wax on my s... Read Moreurfboard. Like the elbows for example, sometimes ill be waiting a while for a set to come in, and ill have my elbows resting on the board and it seems that the friction with the wax seems to be stretching/ thinning out the material in that area or in the crotch area where I'm constantly changing from laying down on my board to paddle to sitting up on it. I don't know if this would be helpful but would love to see more durable material in these specific areas as it has on the knees. Please let me know if there is any way I should be taking care of my wetsuit outside of washing it with fresh water and hanging it midbody (not in direct sunlight) to prevent this deterioration. I will provide an update when I've had more time with it. But overall, I feel like have a good range of motion, I always feel warm in it, and it is easy to get on and off after you've worn it out a few times. I enjoy having the hood because I can just slip my head through the face opening on hot days, and have the hood on during cloudy mornings when it's cold. Very few people have a hood down here, but it's a great wetsuit that I can wear for the whole year.

Hi Andrew! Thank you for taking the time to write us such a detailed review. We really appreciate the feedback surrounding how the wetsuit seems to be showing wear around some friction points. We'll definitely pass this feedback along to our design team for future seasons. Also, it sounds like you're taking perfect care of your wetsuit which should help to extend its lifetime. If you ever have any greater issues with the points in which its starting to show wear don't hesitate to [contact us](https://help.patagonia.com/s/).

Very Comfortable, Not Durable

I was very excited about this wetsuit, having wanted a Patagonia suit for a long time. When I first got it I was amazed how perfectly it fit, and I love that there is a MT size. Unfortunately, this wetsuit is falling apart. I have used it 50 times since I bought it...maybe. The seams are failing, the liner is separating, and it feels like it is b... Read Moreleeding way more through the fabric than it initially did. I have owned many wetsuits in my life, but this was the first one by Patagonia. I love the thought of less impact on the environment, but any gains in the production process are pointless if you have to buy 3 times as frequently. I will not be buying another one, not until I see some improvement in the durability.
