Spend a week scoring uncrowded waves in Alaska with the right suit, and you’ll start to think that warm water is way overrated. The redesigned R4 Front-Zip Hooded is the warmest wetsuit Patagonia offers, with high-quality neoprene and a merino wool and polyester lining for unmatched warmth, strength and flex.
Features include a heavyweight wool and recycled polyester lining in the torso and thighs to maximize warmth, with a new mid-weight wool and polyester lining in the hood, sleeves and lower legs for increased performance and stretch. Critical seams in high-stress areas are secured and reinforced for strength.

Comments about Patagonia R4 5/4/3mm Hooded Front-Zip Wetsuit - black:
Love this suit for Pacific Northwest surfing, Had to get a second to make my first last longer. The first suit is two years old and I have watched all my friends spend as much as I did and then some buying other suits.
Luckily with my job I get to surf 4-5 days a week and this suit has stood the test of time.
I am a fanatic about keepign it in good shape, partly because I am just OCD, but also because without it I coudln't surf.
Glad to have two now, just in case.
