Patagonia’s R3® Yulex® Front-Zip is for the chillier, but not frigid, surf zones around the world. R3® Yulex® Front-Zip leaves a lighter impact on the natural world while keeping you feeling warm and loose. For water temps ranging from 48-55 degrees Fahrenheit, at 4.5/3.5mm, this suit won’t flail or fail. A stretchy, neoprene-free wetsuit made for use in water temperatures: 48–55° F/9–13° C.

Patagonia’s wetsuit line has been completely redesigned this season. The new suits feature an updated patterning across the back shoulder seam for ease of motion while paddling; a wider, lower-profile internal seam tape for utmost comfort; new 100% recycled, ultra-soft polyester arm and leg linings that saves 18 water bottles per suit; 100% recycled spandex in the external and internal thermal linings; AQUAa water-based glue; and, solution-dyed linings. They’re still constructed from a neoprene-free blend of 85% Yulex® natural rubber from sources that are FSC® certified by the Rainforest Alliance (meaning the forest of hevea trees––the source of the rubber––doesn’t come from a newly cut rainforest) and 15% synthetic rubber by polymer content. All Patagonia’s wetsuits are Fair Trade Certified™ sewn (the only Fair Trade Certified™ wetsuits in the industry, by the way).
