Product Info

The Patagonia Women's R3 Yulex 4.5/3.5 Chest Zip Wetsuit is a completely redesigned of their women’s wetsuits, which now feature a breezy asymmetrical entrance (they slide on and off with ease), a new fit and an ultra-soft 100% recycled polyester internal lining that feels like a second skin. The Women’s 4.5m/3.5mm R2® Yulex® Front-Zip is for water in the 48-55 degrees Fahrenheit range. This is for the surfer who wants to get in the water faster, surf longer and wear a suit that leaves a lighter impact on the environment than ever before.

The new suits feature an updated patterning across the back shoulder seam for ease of motion while paddling; a wider, lower-profile internal seam tape for utmost comfort; new 100% recycled, ultra-soft polyester arm and leg linings that saves 18 water bottles per suit; 100% recycled spandex in the external and internal thermal linings; AQUAa water-based glue; and, solution-dyed linings. They’re still constructed from a neoprene-free blend of 85% Yulex® natural rubber from sources that are FSC® certified by the Rainforest Alliance (meaning the forest of hevea trees––the source of the rubber––doesn’t come from a newly cut rainforest) and 15% synthetic rubber by polymer content. All Patagonia’s wetsuits are Fair Trade Certified™ sewn (the only Fair Trade Certified™ wetsuits in the industry, by the way).

Great suit, love for Cleanline!

This suit is great, really warm and comfortable. I’m 5’9” 150lbs and got the 10, which is perfect for height and has maybe the slightest bit of extra room around the middle which I don’t mind. My only complaint has been chaffing in the neck, which can be improved with some body glide and is worth it to not have the flushing. I also received the wetsuit quickly with stickers, candy and a nice note from Cleanline! Thank you!

Christmas gift

Haven't presented this gift yet. I know that she rents wetsuits from you whenever they are in Cannon Beach so it is exactly what she wants. I will say that your customer service is excellent. Received the item in a short time with a nice thank you note and some candy in the box. Thank you!

Hooray -this suit is warm

Northern California winter ocean water is cold. Finally, I have a wetsuit that keeps me warm. This is an amazing suit. It dries fast. It’s not as hard to take off after surfing as many chest suit suits are.I wouldn’t go so far as to say it’s easy. However it is possible. Love this suit!

Great product but choking me around the neck

I searched out this product because I was wanting this brand due to the environmental impact with what it is made out of. I am so glad I found one and bought it right away. However I have never owned a wetsuit before but have rented. This wetsuit is loose in between the legs and so tight round the neck that it is choking me. I don’t have a thick neck. I am 5’7” about 140 lbs. I am not for sure if it will stretch in the neck the more I will wear it. But that is the reason I gave it a 4 out of 5 instead of 5 out of 5.
