Fitted with a redesigned interior, the Patagonia R3 Insertable Wetsuit Hood is a warm and snug traditional style wetsuit hood. Made from flexible, high-quality 3mm neoprene, the R3 Insertable Hood offers essential warmth for your head and neck, letting you surf in colder conditions without stepping up to a winter suit. Lined with warm, hydrophobic low-pile recycled polyester micro-grid, the contoured three-panel construction conforms to the head for comfort while an adjustable cord provides a snug fit around the face. The 1.5mm neoprene neck bib tucks into your suit to prevent flushing, and the Supratex brim shields your face from rain or sun.

Patagonia Wetsuits R3 Insertable Hood ok, but with 2 issuesReview by alex alex
does its job of keeping you warmer.
however, i have 2 issues with this particular design and maybe material:
1. the insertable flap portion keeps getting pulled out even in a minor rinse,
2. the material somehow makes this hood stink. all my other wetsuits and rashguards
don't have this issue. just this hood.

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.
