The Patagonia R4 Yulex Hooded Wetsuit packs insane warmth that will keep you in the water longer. The super eco-friendly Yulex material used in the R4 Wetsuit has improved substantially in the last year, and the overall stretch and feel are on par with what you would expect from a high-end wetsuit. This suit is for the coldest waters out there, down into the 30's, and it will keep you as warm as anything on the market with its 5.5mm thickness and a solid front zip entry. Round out this wetsuit with the triple glued and blind stitched seams and internal taping and you have an extremely warm, durable, and surprisingly stretchy (for the thickness) wetsuit.

A warm and durable neoprene-free wetsuit, the Patagonia R4 Yulex Front-Zip Hooded Full Suit is made of 85% Yulex natural rubber/15% synthetic rubber by polymer content; the natural rubber is derived from sources that are Forest Stewardship Council certified by the Rainforest Alliance. Made in a Fair Trade Certified facility. Suggested water temperatures: 38–48° F/3–9° C.

Now made in a Fair Trade Certified facility, these neoprene-free Yulex wetsuits are made of 85% natural rubber/15% synthetic rubber by polymer content. Replacing a petroleum-based material with a plant-based one, they offer the same warmth and performance attributes as conventional stretch neoprene while reducing CO2 emissions by up to 80% in the manufacturing process. Derived from sources that are Forest Stewardship Council certified by the Rainforest Alliance, natural rubber is blended with chlorine-free synthetic rubber to increase ozone- and UV -resistance and meets rigorous standards for strength, stretch, and durability. With new patterning for maximum flexibility and improved fit, the R4 Yulex Front-Zip Hooded Full Suit is 5.5mm in the torso and thighs (hood: 3.5mm), lined with high-stretch, fast-drying 95% polyester (51% recycled) /5% spandex inverted microgrid; 4mm in the arms and legs, lined with high-stretch, fast-drying 100% recycled polyester jersey; the face fabric is 85% recycled polyester/15% spandex. The face fabric and lining are now solution-dyed—using 86% less water than conventional dyeing—and are laminated with water-based AquaA glue that’s free from harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The suit’s floating front-zip entry features a corrosion-proof zipper and asymmetrical flap for a better seal, and the Salmi zipper is fully replaceable to extend the suit’s lifespan. Supratex kneepads and ankle cuffs provide excellent abrasion resistance and increased durability. 100% external seam sealing; all seams are triple glued and internally taped. An adjustable hood opening has a cord lock for custom fit. Easy-access key loop included. Suggested water temperatures: 38–48° F/3–9° C.
