Ideal for cloudy days off the coast of California or windy sessions at Cocoa Beach, the Patagonia Women's R1 Back-Zip Full Regular Wetsuit provides that extra warmth you need to keep the shivers at bay during a long surf session. Made with ultra-flexible neoprene fabric, a lightweight recycled polyester lining in the torso and thighs, and neoprene underarm panels for additional stretch, the R1 Back-Zip Full Regular keeps your core and limbs warm and loose while you paddle for a wave. Seams are triple-glued, blind stitched, and feature 1cm bartacks, glue dots, and Meloc reinforcements on high stress areas and critical seams to eliminate leaks. In addition, heat-pressed wrist and ankle cuffs reduce hydraulic lift and flushing issues while a woman-specific fit contours to a woman's body for a comfortable, unrestricted fit. Its center-back zipper with crescent-shaped neoprene panel provides a better seal and an easier zip-up, and a zipper gusset has drain holes to eliminate any water. Patagonia also gave the R1 wetsuit an internal neck gasket to prevent water entry, an internal back flap to block wind and to separate zipper teeth from skin for comfort, and an extended neck flap with PU-molded hook-and-loop closure to allow for a stronger seal and more comfort. Anatomically engineered PVC-free knee pads are made with flexible and durable Supratex material for improved comfort while you surf.
