Snow on the hills, solid swell on the buoys and a sturdy boat to whisk you up the coast. With high-quality neoprene that offers unmatched warmth, strength and flex, the R4 Back-Zip Full Suit keeps you loose and comfortable through long midwinter surfs in chilly offshore winds. Features include anatomical patterning, external sealing on all seams to eliminate leaks, a heavyweight merino wool and recycled polyester lining in the torso and thighs for warmth and a midweight merino wool and polyester lining in sleeves and legs for increased performance and stretch. The back-zip allows easy on/off, and enlarged PVC-free kneepads provide long-lasting durability. A cap or insertable hood can be added for additional warmth. All critical seams and wear points are secured with glue dots, 1cm bartacks and Melco® reinforcements.
