Product Construction

Made of 85% natural rubber/15% synthetic rubber by polymer content that replaces a petroleum-based material with a plant-based one, this vest offers the same performance attributes as conventional stretch neoprene while reducing CO2 emissions by up to ~80% in the manufacturing process. Tapped 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 Patagonia's rigorous standards for strength and durability. Providing supplemental warmth and sun protection for warm-water surfing, the neoprene-free R1 Lite Yulex Vest is 1.5mm thick, with a stretchy and fast-drying 100% recycled polyester interior lining; the exterior fabric is made of durable, water-resistant 88% recycled polyester/12% spandex. The exterior fabric and interior 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). Other features include a six-inch chest zipper with backing flap for comfort against the skin, a rolled hem with zigzag coverstitching at the neck and arm openings, and a low-profile, fused-edge hem at the waist. Made in a Fair Trade Certified facility.
