|Features||Chest Zip Full Wetsuit|
The PATAGONIA Men's R1 Lite Yulex Front Zip Wetsuit is 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, they blend the natural rubber with chlorine-free synthetic rubber to increase ozone- and UV-resistance and meet Patagonia's rigorous standards for strength, stretch and durability.
With an anatomical, performance-focused design that maximizes comfort and flexibility while minimizing weight, the superlight R1® Lite Yulex® Front-Zip Full Suit is 2mm with a high-stretch, fast-drying 100% recycled polyester lining; the face fabric is 88% recycled polyester/12% spandex.
The floating front-zip features a corrosion-proof zipper and asymmetrical flap for better seal, stretch and range of motion through the chest and shoulders.
