A high-performance, neoprene-free wetsuit made of 85% Yulex™ natural rubber that's ideal for water temperatures of 9–13° C

Patagonia's new, neoprene-free Yulex™ wetsuits are 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.

Yulex: a responsibly-sourced and high-performance material

Derived from sources that are Forest Stewardship Council® certified by the Rainforest Alliance, Patagonia blends the natural rubber with chlorine-free synthetic rubber to increase ozone and UV resistance while meeting their rigorous standards for strength, stretch and durability.

Anatomically-designed for a blend of warmth and flex

With an anatomical, performance-focused design that maximizes comfort and flexibility while minimizing weight, the R3™ Yulex Front-Zip Full Suit is 4.5mm in the torso and thighs, 3.5mm in the arms and legs. The torso is lined with a high-stretch, fast-drying 51% recycled polyester inverted microgrid, while the arms and legs are lined with high-stretch, fast-drying 100% recycled polyester jersey. The suit's face fabric is 85% recycled polyester.

Easy to get in and out of with a huge range of movement

The Yulex R3 women's wetsuit uses a floating front-zip, featuring a corrosion-proof zipper and asymmetrical flap for better seal, stretch and range of motion through the chest and shoulders. Unlike other designs, the Salmi® zipper is fully replaceable to extend the suit’s lifespan.

A durable construction that's built to last

Supratex kneepads and ankle cuffs provide excellent abrasion resistance and increased durability. 100% external seam sealing; all seams are triple glued, blindstitched and internally taped. Easy-access key loop included. Suggested ideal water temperatures of 48 to 55°F or 9 to 13°C.
