Note

We stand behind everything we make, including our wetsuits. But wetsuits require care if they are going to perform and wear the way they were intended. Patagonia is not responsible for wetsuits that are abused or show normal wear and tear over time. Scratches and fading are inevitable, as are tears from the occasional close call with a fin.

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.

Women's R1® Lite Yulex® Shorts is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits Great! I wanted bottoms with more coverage and would keep coverage in my active life around the water, and these bottoms are perfect for just that! They have a heavier material that covers everything that needs to be covered, while still letting you move constantly. I bought the matching top that goes with it, and I love it. I am a size 8-10 in bottoms and ordered a 10 just to be safe, and they fit perfectly.
