Patagonia R5 Yulex Chest Zip Hooded Wetsuit 2020


Patagonia's warmest wetsuit offers top-level, planet-friendly performance.

The 2020 Patagonia R5 Yulex Chest Zip Hooded Wetsuit is upgraded with new Yulex for greater stretch and warmth so that even the coldest days don't stop you surfing. Designed for water temps of 0-3°C, the R5 has 6.5mm Yulex in the torso and thighs, 5mm in the arms and legs, and 4.5mm in the hood. And if that's not enough to keep you warm in close-to-freezing water, it's backed up with thermal lining in key areas, and high-stretch polyester to keep your arms and legs warm without restricting your paddling.

Patagonia's wetsuits are super durable. All the seams are triple glued, internally taped and then 100% liquid sealed to make sure they stand the test of time and keep that icy water away from your body. Supratex kneepads and ankle cuffs add durability, whilst the adjustable hood keeps your noggin cosy. Patagonia seals you in with their floating asymmetric chest closure that's really watertight, with a replaceable corrosion-proof Salmi zipper.

If you're after warmth in the coldest waters, you can't go wrong with the planet-friendly Patagonia R5 Yulex Chest Zip Hooded Wetsuit.

The Best Bits

85% planet-friendly Yulex rubber

construction is sourced from FSC Certified sources and processed to create Patagonia’s stretchiest rubber yet.

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.

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.

6.5mm rubber in torso and thighs

for increased warmth in the core areas of the body.

5mm rubber in arms/legs

improves flexibility in areas that need to move a bit more freely.

4.5mm Hood

adjustable opening with cord lock for a custom fit.
