From seed to suit. Made from our revolutionary plant-based Yulex® biorubber, our R2® Yulex®/Nexkin® Front-Zip Full Suit offers a responsible, high-performance cool-water wetsuit choice while maintaining Patagonia’s rigorous standards for warmth, durability and flex. The renewable, hypoallergenic Yulex® natural rubber is paired with traditional neoprene in a 60%/40% (Yulex/neoprene) blend, while the Nexkin® windproof coating reduces evaporative cooling and has a microdenier fabric embedded in it that is much more durable than traditional smooth-skin neoprene. The torso and thighs are lined with a hydrophobic micro-grid all-recycled polyester thermal lining that holds heat close to your body and won’t absorb water, while the arms, legs and collar are lined with high-stretch all-recycled polyester for maximum comfort and freedom of movement. The floating front-zip keeps you loose through the shoulders and chest and 100% external seam sealing eliminates leaks. All seams are triple glued, blindstitched and internally taped for additional strength.
