Patagonia's Description
The R4 is best suited for water temps from 36-48° F / 3-8° C

Spend a week scoring uncrowded waves in Alaska with the right suit, and you’ll start to think that warm water is way overrated. The redesigned R4® Front-Zip Hooded Full Suit is the warmest wetsuit we offer, with high-quality neoprene and a merino wool and polyester lining that offers unmatched warmth, strength and flex. Features include new anatomical patterning, 100% external seam sealing to eliminate leaks, a heavyweight wool and recycled polyester lining in the torso and thighs to maximize warmth, and a new midweight wool and polyester lining in the hood, sleeves and lower legs for increased performance and stretch. With simplified entry, redesigned 3-panel hood and enlarged PVC-free kneepads for long-lasting durability. Critical seams and high-stress areas are secured and reinforced for strength. ( US Patent No. 7395553)

• Made with high-quality neoprene that meets our rigorous standards for strength, durability and warmth; grid lining: torso/thighs lined with original, heavyweight chlorine-free merino wool and recycled polyester; sleeves/legs and hood/external gasket lined with midweight chlorine-free merino wool and polyester
• Warm and soft merino wool dries quickly and reduces odor for the garment.
• One-piece front and back panels; internal/external neck gaskets (1.5mm neoprene with a polyester jersey surface and center-front key pocket at the base); overlapped front yoke for easy on/off
• Hood: neoprene 3-panel construction conforms to head for a comfortable fit and easy on/off, adjustable cord provides snug fit around face, Supratex brim shields face from sun and sheds water
• Neoprene underarm panels have nylon jersey fabric on both sides for better stretch while paddling; durable recycled polyester jersey fabric on the outside of seat and legs; anatomically engineered PVC-free kneepads; wrist/ankle cuffs are made with flexible, durable Supratex material; which helps reduce flushing
• 1cm bartacks, glue dots and Melco® reinforcements secure all high stress areas and critical seam locations
• 100% external seam sealing; seams are single-needle blindstitched on the outside with nylon bonded thread, and triple glued for extra durability and strength; critical areas and crotch seams are internally taped
• 4.5mm neoprene (torso/thighs) lined with original, heavyweight chlorine-free merino wool and recycled polyester; 3.5mm neoprene (sleeves/legs) and 2.5mm neoprene (hood/external gasket) lined with midweight chlorine-free merino wool and polyester

Customer Reviews

  1. R4

    by Casey VanSanten on April 12, 2014

    The R4 is awesome. Very comfortable and flexible. 3 sessions in 34-36 degree water with the air 40-45. I went out for 2 hours plus and felt great in my R4. Unbelievable. I'm stoked that I just extended my season in spring and fall on Lake Michigan. If it's not frozen I'll be riding! All because I bought the R4!!
