Patagonia Wetsuits: Warmer, More Environmentally Conscious

When Patagonia started making wetsuits in 2005, they had a simple purpose in mind: They wanted to apply their expertise in technical product design to build durable, high-performing suits in a less harmful way.

Testing in the lab and the water showed that the performance characteristics of Yulex natural rubber equaled or exceeded those of conventional neoprene. Once Patagonia found a sustainably harvested, FSC-certified source, they decided to go all in.

Rather than introducing FSC certified rubber in just a few styles, they’re using it in all 21 of their full suits this season. They’re also sharing the technology with the rest of the surf industry, hoping to inspire other companies to shift away from nonrenewable materials.

Our old stock/remaining non Yulex Patagonia wetsuits use the highest quality Japanese neoprene. It has a 98% closed-cell ratio, which adds dead air space and with it, warmth.

Their patented fabric construction incorporates a suit lining that blends merino wool with recycled polyester to trap more insulative dead-air space and quickly wick moisture away from your skin.

They use chlorine-free wool, recycled polyester, PVC-free kneepads and thinner neoprene layers (without sacrificing warmth retention) to reduce our impact on the environment.
