Designed for water temperatures ranging between 48 and 55°F/9 and 13°C, Patagonia's Yulex® wetsuits offer exceptional stretch and sustainability features.
These innovative wetsuits are the sole Fair Trade Certified™ options on the market, crafted from a blend of 85% Yulex® natural rubber and 15% synthetic rubber, with the natural rubber being FSC® certified by Rainforest Alliance.
The wetsuit's construction includes an elastic composition of 85% Yulex® natural rubber and 15% chlorine-free synthetic rubber, with the natural rubber also boasting FSC® certification. The torso and thighs are lined with a quick-drying, thermal microgrid lining made from 95% polyester (51% recycled) and 5% recycled spandex, ensuring both warmth and flexibility.
For the arms and legs, a highly stretchable, solution-dyed 100% recycled polyester lining is employed, alongside a robust solution-dyed outer fabric consisting of 85% recycled polyester and 15% recycled elastane. The lining and outer fabric are bonded with solvent-free AquaA™ glue.
The wetsuit's construction emphasizes durability and waterproofing, featuring 100% externally sealed seams and triple-glued seams sealed with a comfortable and discreet interior seam tape. The asymmetrical front zipper, equipped with a replaceable and corrosion-resistant Salmi® zipper, enhances sealing and extends the wetsuit's lifespan. Additionally, it includes a convenient key loop inside.
Supratex knee pads and arm warmers provide durability, flexibility, and a comfortable fit that doesn't restrict movement. The wetsuit is Fair Trade Certified™ sewn, ensuring that the individuals who manufactured it receive a bonus for their labor.
