Where to Buy

The Irish winter offers plenty of thick Atlantic slabs, but if the shallow rocks don't get you, the ice cream headaches will. Made with durable 1.5mm neoprene laminated to a merino wool and recycled polyester jersey liner, the R3(R) Wool Lined Insertable Hood tucks inside a wetsuit or drysuit to provide supplemental warmth while maximizing flexibility and preventing flushing. The hood's three-panel construction conforms to the head for a comfortable fit, and the neoprene bib sits snug to the neck. An adjustable cord allows for a secure, customized fit around the face, and the Supratex brim sheds water and shields your eyes from the sun. Seams are internally taped to prevent leakage and increase durability.
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).
