- Patagonia Women's R1 Back Zip Wetsuit - 2014 I'll never buy another brand Review by Danelle Danelle
RatingI've used O'Neill and roxy suits, this one is SO much better. You don't get the cold water flush down your back in the cold Northern California water.(Posted on 7/7/2015) 2015-07-07
- Patagonia Women's R1 Back Zip Wetsuit - 2014 Great SuitReview by loriesan loriesan
RatingGreat Suit. Very warm and excellent construction. Easy to get on and off. Would not expect any less from Patagonia. It was also nice that Cleanline dropped in some Sexwax (which my daughter promptly stole) and a couple of Starbust (which we both ate) as a very nice little gesture.(Posted on 3/16/2015) 2015-03-16

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.
