Extend your wetsuits possibilities by adding extra insulation with the Patagonia Water Heater Hooded Vest. Designed to be worn under a wetsuit, it provides supplementary warmth for your head and core, extending any wetsuits thermal range. Use the Water Heater Vest to convert your hood-less wetsuit into hooded one that will stay warmer a bit longer into the cold weather, ensuring you get the most out of your suit. Constructed using high-quality neoprene that meets Patagonia's rigorous standards for strength and stretch, the vest fits close to your body while allowing full freedom of movement in the water making it super warm and comfortable.
The hood has a warm and quick-drying micro-grid thermal lining made with 67% all-recycled polyester content, while the body has a high-stretch 100% recycled liner and the entire garment has an exterior made of water-resistant, durable 88% recycled polyester/12% spandex. An outer neck baffle sits over the wetsuit neck to prevent water entry and the adjustable face opening has a cinch-locking elastic cord. Seams are glued and blindstitched for durability and comfort.
Extend your surf season! Turn your R2 wetsuit into an R3 or your hood-less R3 into an R4! Those coldwater barrels are calling and it's time to answer.

PatagonIa Ironclad guarantee
We stand behind everything we make, including our wetsuits. But wetsuits require care if they are going to perform and wear the way they were intended. Patagonia is not responsible for wetsuits that are abused or show normal wear and tear over time. Scratches and fading are inevitable, as are tears from the occasional close call with a fin.
Wetsuit Care Guideline:
- Rinse your wetsuit with fresh water after every use.
- After rinsing, fold in half at waist and hang dry.
- Do not store it wet, or in direct sunlight.
- Suit up carefully. We've selected high-stretch materials for their comfort and function. Avoid overstretching fabric and seams. Do not step on one leg to pull the other leg out.
- If possible, change in a plastic tub or on a mat
Our wetsuit warranty does not cover upgrading your older Patagonia wetsuit to a current model. We are continuously improving our designs and materials, but that doesn't make your existing wetsuit unsatisfactory. It just means that the next one you buy will be even better than the last.
Returns are easy! We understand that in some situations returns or exchanges may be necessary. We also want you to be stoked on your purchase. If you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase you may return it for a full refund, or exchange within 30 days of receiving your order. Items must be in new condition with original tags and packaging.
Please make sure your wetsuit fits before taking it in the water. We are not able to take returns or exchanges on used wetsuits.
