Patagonia Men's R3® Yulex® Front-Zip Full Wetsuit

February 25, 2021

Best suit ever!!

Patagonia has really improved it's Yulex. If you are reading reviews that the suit is stiff then they are describing the 1st generation Yulex from several years ago. The new suits are super flexible and soft. They dry in record time and barely retain water. I use the R3 in temps that it took a 5/4 suit, in other brands, to stay warm. Expensive...

Sooo Warm! Sooo Comfy!

I have to say, I tried wetsuits from all the major brands and I love this one the most. Not only for Patagonias continued commitment to sustainability with this amazing suit, but in terms of warmth and comfort, this is right at the top of the pack. Im in the Bay Area and I am so toasty in this thing. I read that some people found it hard to put on... Read More; in my experience, this was one of the easiest front zip suits to get on and off, and I have wide shoulders. The material is so stretchy and comfortable. It does take a bit of time to dry, but that is expected. Also, dont know how it will hold up over time, but so far so good. Overall, Patagonia, you nailed it, thank you for being the company that you are and making amazing gear. Yeeeew!

even better

This is the third Patagonia wetsuit I've owned. Each new one improves upon the last (and even the first was better than other brands I've tried). All have been incredibly durable. I surf a lot and - with good care - my last suit went seven years. I can probably even pass it along to my son who can get a year or two out of it. The new Yule...

Fantastic investment

Love the suit so far, warn about 4-5 times in colder Santa Cruz water (around 50-54ºF) and have been super impressed by how warm the suit is. Didn't notice as much stiffness as other reviews mentioned, is a bit finicky getting into and out of but does stretch out a bit when wet. Overall very happy with the suit and stoked it will last for year... Read Mores.

Ill never buy another brand of suit

By far the most comfortable and warmest suit Ive ever owned. Also the easiest to get on and off. Maybe the most expensive wetsuit out there, but by far the most worth it. Ive gone through many different brands (billabong, xcel, rip curl, Hurley, ONeill) and although all those brands were good, Patagonias suit is next level great. Spend a little ext... Read Morera on a suit, treat yourself, you wont regret it.

Would not recommend

Love the idea of eco-friendly neoprene but I would avoid this wetsuit. The wetsuit is insanely stiff compared to basically any other product. After minimal use (less the 25 sessions) the seams started to unravel and the rubber started cracking. There is a lifetime guarantee on the seams but it takes weeks to ship it back and get it fixed. Additiona... Read Morelly, it sort of defeats the purpose of having an eco friendly product if you need to constantly be shipping it back and forth to get it fixed.
