An easy way to add exceptional warmth, the Patagonia Yulex Water Heater Hooded Vest can be paired with any non-hooded suit to keep you in the water as the temperatures drop. With a formfitting, low-bulk design for maximum comfort under a wetsuit, the Water Heater easily extends any suit’s thermal range. The 2mm hood has a soft and cozy, fast-drying thermal lining and the exterior face fabric is made of a durable, water-resistant blend that keeps your head, ears and neck fully protected and warm. Seams are glued and blind-stitched for comfort and durability and an outer neck baffle sits over the wetsuit neck to prevent water entry. Designed for a sleek and easy fit under a wetsuit, the Yulex Water Heater Hooded Vest gives you the benefits of a winter hooded suit with spending only a fraction of what a hooded suit would cost.

Patagonia Yulex Water Heater Hooded Vest Great vestReview by Roberto Roberto
Great fit, feels custom made. Will see how it does on the long run, but usually Patagonia gear is of very high quality, and the stitching looks very good indeed.

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.
