The first storms of the season are always welcome in the Pacific Northwest, but the same weather that wakes up the points also brings pouring rain and howling wind. Made from flexible, high-quality 3mm neoprene, the new R3(R) Insertable Hood offers supplement warmth for your head and neck, letting you surf in colder conditions without stepping up to a winter suit. Lined with warm, hydrophobic low-pile recycled polyester microgrid, the contoured 3-panel construction conforms to the head for comfort while an adjustable cord provides a snug fit around the face. The 1.5mm neoprene neck bib tucks into your suit to prevent flushing, and the Supratex brim shields your face from rain or sun. Seams are internally taped to prevent leakage. Made for cold water: 48-55deg F/9-13deg C.
For cold water 48-55deg F /8-12deg C. When it came to wetsuits, we 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, we tried wool. For comfort and performance, we blend merino wool with polyester, and it's this merino/polyester blend lining that gives our wetsuits their added warmth without added rubber. We make wetsuits in four weights for all water temperatures - R1(R) (warm), R2(R) (cool), R3(R) (cold), and R4(R) (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. 1.5mm neoprene bib around neck tucks into wetsuit to prevent water entry.

All seams internally taped to prevent leakage Fabric: 1.5mm neoprene lined with chlorine-free merino wool/recycled polyester jersey. Weight: 167 g (5.9 oz).
