There are a lot of choices out there when it comes to buying a wetsuit so why not choose an eco-friendly wetsuit jacket. The men's Patagonia R1 Lite Yulex 1.5mm Long Sleeve Jacket is made from Yulex, a sustainably grown neoprene replacement that comes from rubber trees. Lightweight, warm and stretchy for comfort and performance, this wetsuit jacket is made to last.

Patagonia has reformulated the Yulex material in their spring suits, making them lighter, stretchier and more comfortable. Offering full-arm warmth, comfort and sun protection, the redesigned, neoprene-free R1 Lite Yulex Long-Sleeved Top is made of 1.5mm 85% natural rubber/15% synthetic rubber by polymer content. Replacing a petroleum-based material with a plant-based one, it offers the same 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, natural rubber has been blended with chlorine-free synthetic rubber to increase ozone- and UV-resistance and meets rigorous standards for strength and durability. The interior lining is stretchy and fast-drying 100% recycled polyester; the exterior face fabric is made of durable, water-resistant 88% recycled polyester/12% spandex. The face fabric and lining are now solution dyed—using 86% less water than conventional dyeing—and are laminated with water-based AquaA glue that’s free from harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs). A streamlined anatomical design holds close to the body for maximum flex, and other features include a rubberized waist gasket and an adjustable waist and cord lock to help keep the top in place. Seams are sewn with flatlock construction for next-to-skin comfort. Made in a Fair Trade Certified facility. Suggested water temperatures: 65–75° F/18–23° C.
