Style meets sustainability and performance.
Bring swimsuit style to the lineup with the Patagonia Women's R1 Lite Yulex Spring Juanita Wetsuit. It's styled like a one-piece swimsuit, but it's equipped with wetsuit performance to ensure you stay warm and mobile on your surfboard. Plus, its eco-conscious construction ensures it's easier on the environment, which is something all surfers should be able to get behind.
The unfortunate reality is most surfers rely on petroleum-based, energy-intensive neoprene to keep them warm in the water. Patagonia aims to change all that with its Yulex rubber construction. Yulex rubber is sourced from plantations in the Guatemalan highlands that have been certified by the Forest Stewardship Council and the Rainforest Alliance. This means that the rubber was harvested in a way that doesn't contribute to deforestation, and that production practices are managed in a way that doesn't compromise the ecological integrity of the forest. In addition to environmental concerns, certification ensures that the long-term social and economic well-being of forest workers and communities are maintained. Of course, none of this means anything if the quality isn't up to par, which is why each suit has been developed and tested to meet Patagonia's rigorous standards for performance, durability, and warmth.
