A super warm, hood-less option, the Patagonia R4 Yulex Back Zip Wetsuit is an eco-friendly suit that is perfect for the guy that surfs cold breaks and prefers to only wear a hood on the iciest of days. This premium wetsuit contributes to a brighter future by eliminating traditional petroleum-based neoprene and utilizing Patagonia's neoprene-free Yulex and synthetic rubber materials. What you get is a perfectly flexible, crazy warm coldwater wetsuit that does its part to make less of an impact on our environment.

The Patagonia R4 Yulex Back Zip Wetsuit will keep you comfortable in waters down to the low 40's, so even when frost coats the beach grass, you'll be smiling in the lineup. All the seams on the R4 are glued and blind-stitched for durability, internally taped for additional strength and then externally sealed to keep water out. The traditional center back zip has an internal gasket that helps prevents water entry for minimal flushing while providing an easy in and out. Offering the same warmth and action ready attributes as conventional stretch neoprene, plant-based Yulex rubber is blended with chlorine-free synthetic rubber to increase ozone and UV resistance to meet Patagonia's rigorous standards for strength, stretch and durability.

Patagonia's Yulex Wetsuit movement is a push to break away from the non-renewable, energy-intensive manufacturing of neoprene by embracing the use of natural and synthetic rubber, reducing CO2 emissions and helping the industry shift to cleaner and better materials. A toasty warm, neoprene-free wetsuit, the R4 Yulex is a prime example of the highest quality materials paired with cutting edge technology, made by surfers that only want the best.

Size Chart

The staff at Cleanline Surf specialize in sizing Patagonia wetsuits. If you have never worn a Patagonia wetsuit before we strongly urge you to call us for expert advice on sizing. If you have worn one in the past be aware that the sizing has changed slightly and you may want to lean towards a smaller suit due to the increased flexibility. We do have a size chart available below, but please take it with a grain of salt. For the perfect fit the first time please call and speak with one of our wetsuit experts.

Warranty

PatagonIa Ironclad guarantee

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.

Wetsuit Care Guideline:

  • Rinse your wetsuit with fresh water after every use.
  • After rinsing, fold in half at waist and hang dry.
  • Do not store it wet, or in direct sunlight.
  • Suit up carefully. We've selected high-stretch materials for their comfort and function. Avoid overstretching fabric and seams. Do not step on one leg to pull the other leg out.
  • If possible, change in a plastic tub or on a mat

Our wetsuit warranty does not cover upgrading your older Patagonia wetsuit to a current model. We are continuously improving our designs and materials, but that doesn't make your existing wetsuit unsatisfactory. It just means that the next one you buy will be even better than the last.

Returns

Returns are easy! We understand that in some situations returns or exchanges may be necessary. We also want you to be stoked on your purchase. If you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase you may return it for a full refund, or exchange within 30 days of receiving your order. Items must be in new condition with original tags and packaging.

Please make sure your wetsuit fits before taking it in the water. We are not able to take returns or exchanges on used wetsuits.
