The Patagonia R3 4.5/3.5mm hooded front-zip wetsuit is made with anatomical patterning and high-quality neoprene that meets Patagonia's rigorous standards for stretch and durability. The newly redesigned wetsuit offers essential winter warmth—even through half an hour of sets on the head. The torso and thighs are lined with midweight chlorine-free merino wool, while a hydrophobic recycled polyester micro-grid thermal lining in the arms, legs and hood dries fast, minimizes weight and offers excellent flex.
The floating front-zip provides ease of entry and maximizes freedom of movement through the shoulders and chest. 100% external seam sealing eliminates leaks. Other features include a durable, water-resistant recycled polyester outer lining, hidden key loop and long-lasting Supratex kneepads. All seams are triple glued, blindstitched and internally taped at high stress areas.
