Designed for maximum stretch and freedom of movement, the new, neoprene-free R1 Lite Yulex Front-Zip Short-Sleeved Full Suit is made from 85% natural rubber/15% synthetic rubber by polymer content with a 100% recycled polyester lining; the natural rubber is derived from sources that are Forest Stewardship Council certified by the Rainforest Alliance. Made in a Fair Trade Certified facility. Suggested water temperatures: 65–75° F/18–23° C.

The Patagonia R1 Lite Yulex 2mm Short Sleeve Chest Zip Wetsuit is now made in a Fair Trade Certified facility. These neoprene-free Yulex wetsuits are made of 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, natural rubber has been blended with chlorine-free synthetic rubber to increase ozone- and UV-resistance and meets rigorous standards for strength, stretch and durability. With new patterning for maximum flexibility and improved fit, the superlight R1 Lite Yulex Front-Zip Short-Sleeved 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—using 86% less water than 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 a 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.
