The Patagonia R5 Yulex Front-Zip Hooded 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 is 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 R5 Yulex Front-Zip Hooded Full Suit is 6.5mm in the torso and thighs (hood: 4.5mm), lined with high-stretch, fast-drying 95% polyester (51% recycled) /5% spandex inverted microgrid; 5mm in the arms and legs, lined with high-stretch, fast-drying 100% recycled polyester jersey; the face fabric is 85% recycled polyester/15% 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, and the Salmi zipper is fully replaceable to extend the suit’s lifespan. Supratex kneepads and ankle cuffs provide excellent abrasion resistance and increased durability. 100% external seam sealing; all seams are triple glued and internally taped. An adjustable hood opening has a cord lock for a custom fit. Easy-access key loop included. Suggested water temperatures: 32–38° F/0–3° C.
