When the going gets cold, the suit better be warm. The Men’s R5® Yulex® Hooded Front-Zip is Patagonia’s “don’t even worry about the snow on the sand” wetsuit. Built for frigid temps in the 32-38 degrees Fahrenheit-zone, this neoprene-free wetsuit matches warmth and durability with comfort, stretch and all of this season’s new updates. If the water’s damn-near freezing, you’re not going to want to think twice about the rubber armor you’re wearing; and, with this suit, you won’t have to.

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).
