We stand behind everything we make, including our wetsuits. But wetsuits require care if they are going to perform and wear the way they were intended. Patagonia is not responsible for wetsuits that are abused or show normal wear and tear over time. Scratches and fading are inevitable, as are tears from the occasional close call with a fin. If you would like to send your wetsuit for a quality evaluation, please follow the quality return instructions on our website here.
Having trouble finding a product, colour or size?
There are a few different reasons for that. Global material shortages and transportation issues are affecting everyone right now. And, at Patagonia, our commitment to causing no unnecessary environmental harm means that we only buy the product quantities we need. Put together, the result is that until the product arrives in our warehouse, you may find less choice here for the moment. Learn More
