Patagonia R3 Yulex 3mm Insertable Hood - 2018 Perfect Hood for the WinterReview by Michaele Michaele
I loved how the hood not only tucked in under my wet suit, but there was also a stiff flap that went over the collar so the only water that got into my main suit was what seeped in through the seams. Pretty true to size for the small size. Tough to get on at first (and I initially thought it was too small) but it loosed up slightly after a few uses and fits great. My hair is barely wet after being tossed around by some of the later waves!

Excellent product and quality. Very happy with my new Patagonia hood, and with the service provided by cleanlinesurfe. I was looking for a page to buy Kitesurf equipment, and this is the best of all. Thanks from Argentina, South America.

Patagonia R3 Yulex 3mm Insertable Hood - 2018 Great hood for colder morningsReview by Matt Matt
A great separate hood that performs incredibly well on cold winter Northern California mornings. It's definitely on the stiffer side initially, but loosens up after a few sessions. Integrates really well into my existing wetsuit, and I haven't had any issues with it filling with water.

Size Chart

Patagonia Gloves — Size Chart

At Cleanline Surf we specialize in sizing Patagonia Wetsuit accessories. The manufacturer's size chart is available below but please take it with a grain of salt. If you have any doubt about what size you need we strongly urge you to call us and speak with one of our wetsuit experts. Getting the right size is extremely important and in the end, it will save you both time and money by avoiding the need for a return. Hand measurements should be taken around the knuckles (not the thumb). Measurements refer to body size, not garment dimensions. Gloves measurement is finger to wrist length.



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.

Please reference our full Return Policy.
