The Patagonia wetsuit line was completely revised this year to bring surfers the best and most up-to-date materials and technology. The R4 line uses high-end 100% super stretch neoprene throughout with an internal heavyweight merino wool fleece lining in the torso, and a mid-weight merino wool fleece lining at the legs and arms. This lining helps wick water away from the skin and keep you warmer and drier. All seams are sealed (glued and blindstitched) with critical junction spot taping. A horizontal chest zipper maximizes stretch in your paddle zone and greatly cuts down on flushing and leaking. All Patagonia suits have a lifetime warranty (but no wear and tear).

R4 because R3 was great.
I have had an R3 for a few years now. Its the best suit I have ever owned. I picked up an R4 for winter swell based on this opinion. The R4 is a great suit but falls short of expectations. Areas of the R4 are not lined with wool where the R3 is throughout. Biggest problem for me is the hood hood pattern used on the R4. The center cut of the hood is a full inch wider down the middle than it is on an R3, (also no wool in this section). It seems to create a bagginess defeating the purpose of a winter hood. If you got dreadlocks or a pumpkin head, no worries.
Still a great quality, warm suit.
