Description

Details

A perfect PNW suit. the Patagonia R3 Yulex Hooded Wetsuit adds to its already incredible reputation by eliminating traditional petroleum-based neoprene and utilizing Patagonia's neoprene-free Yulex and synthetic rubber materials. What you get is a perfectly flexible, crazy warm coldwater wetsuit that does its part to make less of an impact on our environment.

The Patagonia R3 Yulex Hooded Wetsuit will keep you comfortable in water as cold as the upper 40's, so you stay cozy warm surfing anywhere from NorCal up to BC. All the seams on the R3 are glued and blind-stitched for durability, internally taped for additional strength and then externally sealed to keep water out. The floating front-zip features a corrosion-proof zipper and asymmetrical flap for better seal, stretch and range of motion through the chest and shoulders. Offering the same warmth and action ready attributes as conventional stretch neoprene, plant-based Yulex rubber is blended with chlorine-free synthetic rubber to increase ozone and UV resistance to meet Patagonia's rigorous standards for strength, stretch and durability.

Patagonia's Yulex Wetsuit movement is a push to break away from the non-renewable, energy-intensive manufacturing of neoprene by embracing the use of natural and synthetic rubber, reducing CO2 emissions and helping the industry shift to cleaner and better materials. A warm and supple, neoprene-free hooded wetsuit, the R3 Yulex illustrates the catalyst of the highest quality materials paired with cutting edge technology, made by surfers that only want the best.

Patagonia R3 Yulex 4.5/3.5 Hooded Wetsuit Great for cold watersReview by Paco Chile Paco Chile

Great wetsuit for cold waters. I am using it in waters at 57 degrees and is great how water just don’t flush in when diving under big waves. It feels a little bit tight but you thank for it when you feel the temperature of the water around you. I might have to buy gloves as my hands were geting frozen while the rest of my body was very warm. Weird contrast

I've beach guarded for 22 Summers. Having said that, I have worn suits from practically every surf company. The Patagonia R3 is by far the most durable wetsuit I've ever owned. Three years old and still going strong.

It was really tight when I first put it on. I got the next size up then what I normally wear. But it has stretched out and is getting better fitting with every surf. The only thing is that the hood is really tight. I have an R4 and the hood fits great. really easy to turn your head. The R3 is hard to move your head around.

After reading all the reviews about how hard it is to get off, I was a bit reserved about buying this suit but I’m so glad I did. It is not at all hard to get off, in fact it’s easier to get out of than the O’Neill I used previously. It’s super comfortable too... love the ankle cuffs. I also found it to be very flexible, even after just one or two uses. The key loop in the chest area is better than none at all. I highly recommend this wetsuit.

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. 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.
