Matt Says:

"When Patagonia stopped production of the R4 Hooded Wetsuit for Women in 2013, we listened to our female customers who desperately needed a suit for the coldest waters on planet earth. We're are incredibly proud that Patagonia agreed to build a limited quantity exclusively for Cleanline, and they did so well Patagonia brought back the Women's R4 for Fall 2015! Thanks Patagonia! The R4 is greatly improved on all fronts with added internal and external seam tape, lighter and more flexible neoprene, as well as a new light weight poly lining paired with Patagonia's classic merino wool for the perfect balance of warmth and flexibility. If you're looking for extreme warmth as well as a balance of durability and flexibility then this is the one!"

Details

This season the Patagonia Women's R4 Hooded Chest Zip Wetsuit continues to live up to its reputation as the warmest wetsuit available for women in coldwater surfing. The Women's R4 Wetsuit feels better and performs reliably with new anatomical patterning and high-quality materials. With a stylish feminine cut and Patagonia's midweight chlorine-free merino wool, you will be comfortably wrapped in unparalleled warmth.

The floating front-zip provides ease of entry and maximizes freedom of movement through the shoulders and chest. 100% external seam sealing eliminates leaks. The torso and thighs are lined with midweight chlorine-free merino wool; hydrophobic recycled polyester micro-grid thermal lining in the arms and legs dries fast, minimizes weight and offers excellent flex. With 100% external seam sealing to eliminate leaks and high-quality neoprene that meets Patagonia's rigorous standards for stretch, durability and warmth, the R4 Chest Zip Full Suit keeps you loose and warm while you're trimming along smooth walls.

If you are a coldwater surfer and want confidence your wetsuit will keep you warm on the coldest days, the Women's R4 Hooded Wetsuit is the suit you've been looking for.

I love my new suit! It took me 10 years to wear out my Xcel Infiniti 5-4-3 and I replaced it with the R4. The R4 is incredibly warm and great quality. I'm super appreciative that Cleanline special ordered this suit from Patagonia and make them available. For that you have a new loyal customer. Loved the starburst and stickers. Thank you.

Patagonia Women's R4 Hooded Chest Zip Wetsuit The R4 Patagonia suit is perfect for our PNW waters. Review by Goldie Goldie

I am loving my new R4 Patagonia suit. My first time out in it, I played all day and didn't feel the bitter cold of our PNW water one bit. The fit is fairly true to size I am 5’4’’ and 125 lbs. I ordered a size 8 and it is little bulky around the middle, however the rest of the suit feels nice. The R4 inner wool lining is very soft and cozy inside and is extremely comfortable around the chest, thighs and knees. I am able to stay in the water for hours and not feel chafed or get that stiffing wetsuit feeling. The suit keeps me well warm in the water and out of the water and the hood feature keeps the cold water from seeping down my back. I highly recommend this suit to any lady that loves to play but doesn't like to get cold.

Patagonia Women's R4 Hooded Chest Zip Wetsuit Great suit for surfing in the Northwest!Review by jenjones jenjones

I had tried the previous Patagonia women's suit and it was too stiff and restrictive for me. The folks at Cleanline said that it was being redesigned so I took a shot and ordered the new one. Well worth it! It is a very warm and comfortable suit with more flexibility than the previous version. It is still a little firmer than other suits but I know that it will last much longer. I highly recommend this suit to any gal who likes to stay warm and wants a high quality suit. Can't wait to put it on again next weekend!

Patagonia Women's R4 Hooded Chest Zip Wetsuit Even better, more flexible than before! Review by Hayley Hayley

I have owned 4 Patagonia suits over the past several years and I always felt that the Patagonia suits are by far the warmest. I get cold very easily and water conditions are anywhere from a balmy 60 degrees to 48 where I surf, as well as a possible wind chill factor. I have always been warm in these suits, and they tend to be more durable than other brands (you can't beat Patagonia and Cleanline customer service either) but the downfall was the 'stiffness' factor in some of their earlier suits. This suit is still a bit more stiff than per say some other brands (I also own Rip Curl and O'Neil suits) but it is way warmer. And now, they have added an even more comfortable wool lining than before AND seam seals for even longer life span. I would highly recommend this suit for the avid surfer who gets cold easily or wants a suit you can surf all day in cold conditions. The extra cost is well worth the longer life span and warmth. I just got this suit and used it the last few weeks and am VERY pleased.

Warranty

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

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.
