Patagonia's Yulex wetsuits fast became our favourites here at Freeze. The 2019 Patagonia R3 Yulex Chest Zip Wetsuit is the first FSC Certified, natural-rubber wetsuit in the world. This latest edition of Patagonia’s famous Yulex wetsuit range is a testament to their constant R&D process – the stretch is perfect, their seam construction is flawless, the wetsuit is super durable, and they’ve refined the sizing for a perfect fit. High-performance planet friendliness – what’s not to love about the Patagonia R3 Yulex Chest Zip Wetsuit?
85% planet-friendly Yulex rubber construction is sourced from FSC Certified sources and processed to create Patagonia’s stretchiest rubber yet.
A 15% synthetic rubber content is mixed in to further improve the longevity and durability of the wetsuit.
Fast-drying inverted microgrid thermal lining in torso and thighs. Made from recycled polyester and elastane.
This super warm lining dries rapidly and insulates effectively, whilst offering excellent flexibility.
Water-resistant 100% recycled polyester jersey lining in arms and legs. This flexible lining is laminated with solvent-free AquaA glue and as with all wetsuit tech – it dries fast.
Durable, water-resistant face fabric contains an 85% recycled polyester/15% elastane blend that doesn’t inhibit the rubber’s stretch and sheds water quickly.
100% external liquid seam-sealed and internally taped GBS seams offer the best durability in almost any wetsuit we sell. Patagonia’s suits aren’t just built for a season, they're built to last.
Anatomic Supratex Knee Pads and ankle cuffs increase the suits durability at key points and seal out flush.
Corrosion-proof Salmi asymmetric chest zipper - Patagonia uses a replaceable zipper design that provides a super seal from the sea.
Easy-access key loop securely stashes your housekeys during the session. Not recommended for electronic key fobs though.
4.5mm rubber in torso and thighs for increased warmth in the core areas of the body.
3.5mm rubber in arms/legs improves flexibility in areas that need to move a bit more freely.
