The Patagonia Women's R1 Lite Yulex 2mm Long Sleeve Chest Zip Spring Wetsuit just got better. Not only is it made in a Fair Trade Certified factory but it's now Fair Trade Certified Sewn. That's on top of the already sustainably made Yulex rubber that is sourced from a rubber tree farm! The women's R1 Yulex offers long sleeve protection from the sun's harmful rays and is easy to get into and peel off with its chest zip entry. This is one killer Patagonia spring wetsuit and fits true to size.

The Patagonia Women's R1 Lite Yulex 2mm Long Sleeve Chest Zip Spring 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 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. Offering full-arm warmth, comfort and sun protection for long sessions in warmer water, the R1 Lite Yulex Front-Zip Long-Sleeved Spring Suit is 2mm throughout, lined with stretchy and fast-drying 100% recycled polyester; the face fabric is an 88% recycled polyester/12% spandex blend. The floating front-zip entry provides excellent flexibility for paddling and has a corrosion-proof Salmi zipper that is fully repairable to extend the suit’s lifespan. Seams are triple glued, blindstitched and internally spot taped. Easy-access key loop included. Suggested water temperatures: 65–75° F/18–23° C.
