The Women's Patagonia R3 Chest Zip is known for its durability and warmth and if you love the idea of a plant-based life then you've clicked on the right wetsuit. The rubber in this suit was thoughtfully formulated and is sustainably sourced from hevea trees in Guatemala so you can surf happily knowing that you're wearing a naturally made product. It's lined with a recycled polyester jersey for comfort and an inverted thermal liner on the chest, back, and thighs for warmth. This suit does fit snug so if this is a concern please contact us so we can help you choose what's right for you.

The Patagonia Women's R3 Yulex 4.5/3.5 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 R3 Yulex Front-Zip Full Suit is 4.5mm in the torso and thighs, lined with high-stretch, fast-drying 95% polyester (51% recycled)/5% spandex inverted microgrid; 3.5mm 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 better seal; unlike other designs, 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. Easy-access key loop included.
