2.5mm Men's Patagonia R1 YULEX Fullsuit
Patagonia has redesigned how they do wetsuits with this 2.5mm Men's Patagonia R1 YULEX Fullsuit. This wetsuit is completely neoprene-free and is made of 85% Yulex. Replacing petroleum-based neoprene, Yulex is a plant-based neoprene that still offers the same warmth and peformance as the conventional neoprene on the market. Flexible and durable, this environmentally friendly wetsuit has an anatomical and lightweight design. It is lined with high-stretch, fast-drying 100% recycled polyester jersey in the arms and legs. The torso/thighs have an inverted microgrid thermal lining that decreases weight and dries fast too! Other great features include: 100% external seam sealing for a sealed and taped wetsuit, a corrosion-proof front zipper and Supratex kneepads for durability.
Yulex is a line of neoprene-free wetsuits crafted from natural rubber and hypoallergenic materials. These sustainably made and fair-trade wetsuits are warm, flexible and durable. The renewable Yulex material comes from hevea trees and is a great replacement to conventional and skin-irritating neoprene. If you experience dermatological reactions to neoprene, a Yulex wetsuit is definitely worth checking out. Learn more about Yulex from our neoprene allergies and hypoallergenic wetsuits blog post.
