Men’s R3® Front-Zip Full Suit

While the Northern Hemisphere suffers through the summer doldrums, the Chilean coast turns Southern Ocean swell into roping, leg-burning left-hand walls. With high-quality neoprene and a merino wool lining that offers trustworthy warmth, strength and flex, redesigned R3® Front-Zip Full Suit keeps you charging until your arms give out from the long laps back to the top of the point. Features include new anatomical patterning, 100% external seam sealing to eliminate leaks, a heavyweight wool in the torso and thighs to maximize warmth, and a new midweight wool lining in the sleeves and lower legs for increased performance and stretch. With simplified front-zip entry and enlarged PVC-free kneepads for long-lasting durability. Critical seams and high-stress areas are secured and reinforced for strength. (U.S. Patent No. 7395553)

We make wetsuits in four weights for all water temperatures – R1® (warm), R2® (cool), R3® (cold), and R4® (frigid) – and in several cuts for men and women. Patagonia wetsuits are decidedly warmer than standard nylon-lined suits, but they also wear longer, dry faster and are made from post-consumer recycled polyester, merino wool softened without chlorine, and no PVC.

Please read the Wetsuit Warranty below and check the Size Chart before purchase. Fit issues that arise after the wetsuit has been worn in the water are not covered by warranty.

Temperature Guide


Ordinary neoprene wetsuits have always been measured in millimeters. But there’s more to Patagonia® suits than just neoprene and nylon. Our merino wool lining combined with high-density neoprene sets a whole new standard for performance and warmth. So we use an R-Rating standard that shows the appropriate suit for the waters you surf. patagonia wetsuit R rating

Wetsuit Warranty

WARRANTY & NON-WARRANTY REPAIRS

WARRANTY REPAIRS cover anything that appears to have failed under normal use, such as a torn seam, blown-out panel, or a broken zipper. We do not charge for warranty repairs.

NON-WARRANTY REPAIRS cover damage due to normal wear and tear or damage not caused by a malfunction. For example, your fin sliced your wetsuit. We charge for non-warranty repairs.

WHO DETERMINES IF IT’S A WARRANTY OR NON-WARRANTY REPAIR? Someone from Fletcher Chouinard Designs (FCD) will determine whether your wetsuit repair is or is not covered by our warranty. They will contact you if there will be a charge and/or to discuss repair options.

CHARGES FOR NON-WARRANTY REPAIRS Minimum Charge (applied toward any repair) $30.00 Re-glue Seams $30.00 Replace Kneepad $35.00 Replace Small Panel $40.00 Replace Large Panel / Zipper $80.00 Cleaning / Washing Fee $20.00

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE? All wetsuits are repaired at FCD Surfshop in Ventura, Calif. Turnaround time is approximately 1-3 days excluding shipping. FCD has the ability to repair the vast majority of panels, tears, nicks and zippers.

FIRST, FILL OUT THE FORM Fill out the Patagonia Wetsuit Repair Form on the next page. Please write clearly, provide complete information and give a detailed description of the repair you want done. Also give us a visual of the area in need of repair by marking it on one of the wetsuit drawings on the repair form.

HOW TO SHIP YOUR WETSUIT 1. Make sure your wetsuit is thoroughly washed: free of dirt and sand, and completely dry. We will not repair suits that are sandy, dirty or wet as they damage our machines. We will add a $20 charge and three days delay for washing and drying time. 2. It’s best to ship your suit in a box large enough to prevent excessive creasing. 3. Place the Patagonia Wetsuit Repair Form (completely filled out) in the box with your wetsuit. Ship your suit to:

FCD HEADQUARTERS – WETSuIT REPAIR FlETCHER CHOuINARD DESIgNS 43 S. Olive Street Ventura, CA 93001 (805) 641-9428 sales@fcdsurfboards.com

WHO PAYS FOR SHIPPING? You pay to send your wetsuit to us; we pay to send it back. This applies both to warranty and non-warranty repairs. All wetsuits will be shipped back to you from FCD.
