A premium, ultrawarm, neoprene-free hooded wetsuit that's made of 85% Yulex natural rubber

The natural rubber in the R5 Yulex Front Zip Hooded suit from Patagonia is derived from sources that are Forest Stewardship Council® certified by the Rainforest Alliance. Suggested water temperatures: 32–38° F/0–3° C.

By replacing a petroleum-based material with a plant-based one, Patagonia's Yulex suits can offer offer the same warmth and performance as conventional stretch neoprene, but with around 80% less CO2 emissions from the manufacturing process.

Responsibly sourced raw materials

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

An anatomical design that's built for cold water performance

With an anatomical, performance-focused design that maximizes comfort and flexibility while minimizing weight, the R5® Yulex Front-Zip Hooded Full Suit is 6.5mm in the torso and thighs, 5mm in the arms and lower legs, and 4.5mm in the hood.

A warm, stretchy and quick-drying liner

The torso, legs and hood are lined with high-stretch, fast-drying 51% recycled polyester/44% polyester/5% spandex inverted microgrid; the arms are lined with high-stretch, fast-drying 100% recycled polyester jersey; the face fabric is 85% recycled polyester/15% spandex.

Replaceable zip to increase lifespan

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

A durable build that's ideal for surfing waves down to 0°C

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. Adjustable hood opening has cord lock for custom fit. Easy-access key loop included. Suggested water temperatures: 32–38° F/0–3° C.
