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----
‚Ä¢ Rinse your wetsuit with fresh water after every use.
‚Ä¢ After rinsing, fold in half at waist and hang dry.
‚Ä¢ Do not store it wet, or in direct sunlight.
‚Ä¢ Suit up carefully. We‚Äôve 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.
‚Ä¢ 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‚Äôt make your existing wetsuit unsatisfactory. It just means that the next one you buy will be even better than the last.
