Made for cold water: 48-55º F/8-12º C.

The future of wetsuits. Made from our revolutionary Yulex® biorubber, our new R3 Yulex®/Nexkin Front-Zip Full Suit offers a responsible, high-performance cold water wetsuit choice while maintaining Patagonia's rigorous standards for warmth, durability and flex. With 100% external seam sealing, the renewable, hypoallergenic Yulex® natural rubber is paired with traditional neoprene in a 60%/40% blend, while the windproof Nexkin coating reduces evaporative cooling and is far more durable than traditional smooth skin neoprene. The torso and thighs are lined with a hydrophobic micro-grid 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 recycled polyester for maximum comfort and freedom of movement. The floating front-zip keeps you loose through the shoulders and chest, while 100% external seam sealing eliminates leaks. All seams are triple glued, blindstitched and internally taped for additional strength.

Biorubber

When we started making wetsuits, we quickly identified neoprene as a material that needed improvements to lessen its environment impact. So we met with the folks from Yulex who wanted to leverage the unique properties of the guayule plant, a hearty desert shrub native to the southwestern United States. Thus began a collaborative long-term project to develop a wetsuit material from guayule rubber.

Compared to traditional neoprene made from petroleum (or limestone), guayule rubber is a renewable resource that provides improved elasticity and softness and can be replaced faster than the product wears out. The agriculture is low-impact and the extraction and processing uses little energy and few chemicals.

Overall, from the crops to the rubber manufacturing, Yulex® guayule rubber has a lower environmental impact than the polychloroprene that it replaces.
