Patagonia R3 Wool Lined Insertable Hood

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Numb feet mean blown waves, and blowing waves in cold water can be pretty miserable. Made from durable 3mm neoprene, the R3(R) Split Toe Booties keep your feet warm and comfortable while offering unmatched dexterity and feel. Lined with hydrophobic, fast-drying low-pile micro-grid all-recycled polyester, they have a split toe and heel lock to improve performance and asymmetrical rubber reinforcements that wrap the foot for a secure fit and provide extra protection from rocks and barnacles. Fine-grip rubber soles provide increased traction, and the Z-Strap closure locks the foot in place for extra support. A PU-laminated cuff tab and a pull ring at the heel make them easy to get on and off; seams are internally taped to prevent leakage.


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. Adjustable cord provides snug fit around face. Supratex brim shields face from sun and sheds water. 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).
