Overall a superbly made suit. Had some issue with the crotch/butt seam separating on a couple of my last suits, however sent them back and Patagonia is fixing it. Keeps me warm, fits comfortably, and the hood compresses nicely not leaving a void around the ears like other suits. Thanks Patagonia for sticking by your product and always evolving in p...

Customer For Life
I was hesitant to buy one of these wetsuits because I try to avoid anything with hype (or a crazy price). A few friends have Patagonia wetsuits and have raved, but I dodged their opinion. The time came for a new heater, so I decided to read up on the Yulex technology, and was swayed almost immediately. Anyone that believes in science should back Yu... Read Morelex. Beside the suit being warmer than a normal comp suit, what really cemented my opinion was the guarantee. I destroyed the knee pad on a head high, low tide day in San Francisco. I got into a hollow section, tried to fly out the end, and got caught at the lip. The foam grabbed my board, flipped it over, and shoved it backwards at me, fin side up. I pulled my legs up to protect my innards. My board slammed into my knees, and somehow I didnt get chopped. The knee pad took all of the force. When this happens, I usually patch the suit myself, because most wetsuit companies dont cover damage due to intended use. But after reading the guarantee on the Patagonia website, and decided to give their repair guys a try. I got my wetsuit back in a week (7 days) and they replaced the entire knee for free. Service like that goes a long way with me. I feel like I got the full treatment with my wetsuit, and I will be back for another one.
For an entire year this suit was 100% waterproof without letting in a single drop of water. It actually worked like a dry suit, I was in shock. It finally started to let in some water after a year of good use, but I'm hoping I can send it in for warranty and get it back to being airtight for an entire year.
Great Winter suit, really warm!
My 4/3 hooded suit fits great and it is very warm, almost to warm. The mornings are cold and the hood is a great addition to keeping my skinny bones and dome warm. I have had to take the hood down a few times and with a pencil neck like mine the fit of the hood around my neck feels great. This is the first time I have purchased a Yulex suit and it...

Super Warm and Flexible
I have worked in the wetsuit world for decades. I have warn almost all brands. I wanted to try Patagonia because I love the brand and its environmental manufacturing practices. The Hooded R3 is an awesome suit. I am tall and skinny and get cold easily, but long sessions are no longer an issue for me. I was pleasantly surprised by all the attention ...

As we head into this winter I am currently still wearing my suit I purchased last winter and it still feels like new; no pin hole leaks any wear. I am super stoked on the suit and will for sure be buying another one when this one wears out.
I live on the central coast of California. Decided it was time to get a suit for the colder water temperatures. After trying on a couple other brands I went to Patagonia because of the advice of friends who have been surfing since they were kids and said these suits were the best they had ever owned. It took me four tries to get the right size and ... Read Moreconfiguration. Started with a hooded medium front zip, too tight under my arms and too difficult to get the hood on and off. Then MT back zip. Oddly had trouble getting in and out of the arms, also decided back zip would not be the optimum for staying warm. Then MT front zip and the neck seemed tight. Finally MT hooded front zip and it was just right. My hands and shoulders are weak areas and played a roll in choosing a suit that fit correctly and was also not too difficult to get in and out of. I have added the Lite Yulex front zip long sleeve top to make the comfort level even better. The Patagonia guarantee is real. All of you who contributed to make this suit possible , a sincere Thank you..
Worth the Price
So toasty, so comfy, so flexible. I love this suit. Im a pretty lanky 6, the large fits perfect everywhere but sits about an inch above my ankle, but its not terrible. Ive really had to adjust to the hood being over my chin and its a bit restrictive on my neck when its down. These are minor concerns though. Its so dang warm. That plus the low carbo...

PLEASE make a ST (Small Tall)
This wetsuit is a great wetsuit. its warm its flexible and the inside material is very comfortable and dries nicely. My one flaw with this wetsuit is that there is no ST size. I have a tall and skinny body type which meant that the suit fit really pretty well on my upper half, although the legs and crotch were too tight. The legs stopped like 4 inc... Read Morehes above my ankle. They went up so far you could see my legs when I would wear booties. Not Fun. The result of this is that I stretched the suit enough by paddling that one of the seams on the right upper chest exploded and now I have a large hole in the suit and haven't used it since. So Please Patagonia make a Small Tall suit ST!
Best Suit Patagonia's produced
Far superior stretch and ease of entry then previous iterations. New seam placement makes me notice the suit less when paddling . I was ready to give up on Patagonia suits because I felt they sacrificed performance for environmental sustainability but with this latest FA20 suit, I feel you don't have to trade one for another. Truly the best su... Read Moreit Patagonia has designed and the first that feels indistinguishable from neoprene.
