R1 Lite Yulex Front-Zip Long-Sleeve Top

When Patagonia debuted their Yulex natural rubber wetsuit construction in 2016 it showed the surfing community that environmentally-harmful neoprene wasn't the only way to stay warm in the water. Now, with the R1 Lite Yulex Front-Zip Long-Sleeve Top, they've taken their original design and made it lighter and stretchier for more ultimate comfort on the board. This 1.5-millimeter wetsuit top is an ideal choice for the surfer seeking extra insulation from chilly morning waves and breezy conditions. The full-length front zipper allows for painless entry and exit without bending like a contortionist, while the triple-glued and blindstitched seams prevent water from seeping inside and chilling your core. These seams are also internally spot taped along high-stress zones for greater durability, and thanks to the fused waistline you've got a sleek, low-profile fit. Top it all off with a construction that reduces CO2 emissions by up to 80%, and you've got a dependable wetsuit that also takes a step in the right direction towards keeping our planet healthy.
