Patagonia's warmest wetsuit offers top-level, planet-friendly performance.
The 2020 Patagonia R5 Yulex Chest Zip Hooded Wetsuit is upgraded with new Yulex for greater stretch and warmth so that even the coldest days don't stop you surfing. Designed for water temps of 0-3°C, the R5 has 6.5mm Yulex in the torso and thighs, 5mm in the arms and legs, and 4.5mm in the hood. And if that's not enough to keep you warm in close-to-freezing water, it's backed up with thermal lining in key areas, and high-stretch polyester to keep your arms and legs warm without restricting your paddling.
Patagonia's wetsuits are super durable. All the seams are triple glued, internally taped and then 100% liquid sealed to make sure they stand the test of time and keep that icy water away from your body. Supratex kneepads and ankle cuffs add durability, whilst the adjustable hood keeps your noggin cosy. Patagonia seals you in with their floating asymmetric chest closure that's really watertight, with a replaceable corrosion-proof Salmi zipper.
