Product Description

The Surf wetsuit market is crowded, so Patagonia, as with all of their products, appraoched the surf wetsuit market with a purpose.   When it came to wetsuits, they wanted something warmer, more flexible, better fitting and tough enough to withstand extended use. Looking to what divers, sailors and fishermen had been using all these years to stay warm, in and on the ocean, Patagonia tried wool. For comfort and performance, they blend merino wool with polyester, and it’s this merino/polyester blend lining that gives Patagonia wetsuits their added warmth without added rubber. Patagonia makes wetsuits in four weights for all water temperatures – R1® (warm), R2® (cool), R3® (cold), and R4® (frigid) – and in several cuts for men and women. Patagonia wetsuits are decidedly warmer than standard nylon-lined suits, but they also wear longer, dry faster and are made from post-consumer recycled polyester, merino wool softened without chlorine, and no PVC.

For warmer water 65-75º F /18-23º C.


  • Handmade with high-quality neoprene that meets rigorous standards for strength, durability and warmth; warm recycled polyester grid lining improves flexibility and dry time
  • One-piece front panel with minimal seam design increases flexibility; internal neck gasket prevents water entry; internal back flap blocks wind; flap has a recycled polyester grid lining, which separates the zipper teeth from the skin for comfort
  • Extended flap closure at neck with PU-molded hook-and-loop closure allows for a stronger seal and more comfort; center-back zipper with crescent-shaped neoprene panel provides a better-seal and easier zip-up; zipper gusset has drain holes
  • Neoprene underarm panels have recycled polyester jersey on both sides for better stretch while paddling; wrist and ankle cuff edges are heat-pressed to reduce hydraulic lift and flushing
  • Anatomically engineered PVC-free kneepads are made with flexible and durable Supratex material
  • 1cm bartacks, glue dots and Melco® reinforcements secure all high stress areas and critical seam locations
  • Seams are single-needle blind-stitched to the outside with nylon-bonded thread, and triple-glued for extra durability and strength; crotch seams are internally taped
  • 2mm neoprene with a smooth recycled polyester jersey exterior and a recycled polyester grid lining
