Good for you and the environment – by Patagonia Made in a Fair Trade Certified™ facility, Patagonia’s stretchy, neoprene-free Yulex™ wetsuits are 85% natural rubber/15% synthetic rubber by polymer content. Replacing a petroleum-based material with a plant-based one, they offer the same warmth and performance attributes as conventional stretch neoprene while reducing CO2 emissions by up to ~80% in the manufacturing process. Derived from sources that are Forest Stewardship Council® certified by the Rainforest Alliance, Patagonia blend the natural rubber with chlorine-free synthetic rubber to increase ozone- and UV-resistance and meet their rigorous standards for strength, stretch and durability. Patterned for maximum flexibility and an improved fit, the superlight R1® Lite Yulex™ Front-Zip Full Suit is 2mm with a high-stretch, fast-drying 100% recycled polyester lining, the face fabric is 88% recycled polyester/12% spandex. The face fabric and lining are now solution dyed—saving 100 liters of water per suit compared to conventional dyeing—and are laminated with water-based AquaA™ glue that’s free from harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The suit’s floating front-zip entry features a corrosion-proof zipper and asymmetrical flap for better seal, stretch and range of motion through the chest and shoulders, the Salmi® zipper is fully replaceable to extend the suit’s lifespan. All seams are triple glued, blindstitched and internally taped. Easy-access key loop included. Suggested water temperatures: 65–75° F/18–23° C.
