Patagonia Women's R2? Yulex? Front-Zip Full Wetsuit

November 22, 2021

Massive improvements

I try to stick to Yulex wetsuits now for environmental purposes. These suits are still super warm and very stretchy. I love the new neck/front zip mechanism its way easier to get into and out of and reminds me of why I loved the brand Id wear before. The neck itself is kind of tight but seems to ease up pretty fast. The shoulders arent as tight as ... Read Morebefore in the new cut, the bust is still a little small for the proportions of the suit but works for bigger chests still. For instance, Id probably be a size 6 if it werent for the bust and the bust on the 8 still is a little small/Im packed in. Overall a great suit and way better than the last iterations.

I maintain my own moorings, plus help others find theirs when they're lost. The flexibility of the rubber is amazing. I love the tight fit around the ankles and wrists. My little boy had to help me in, but that's ok, I know I'm going to stay warm!

Superb quality, terrible fit!

I was incredibly excited to have purchased a yulex R2 chest zip when it was on sale (miracles do happen ;). Very quickly, however, the excitement dissipated. my measurements height: 5'5 (long torso and arms) chest: 34" waist: 26" hips: 26" inseam: 28,29 weight: 120lbs TLDR; I got a size 8 but am probably a size 6. Still, the ... Read Moreneck opening for size 8 was waaay too small. ---- Read for fit details I read that this runs small and is stiff when dry, so I was expecting to encounter some difficulty putting it on. And, it was a struggle. Still, it was nearly impossible to get off. I needed to wrestle with it and eventually had my partner pull it off.. (seriously, I've had wetsuits before, some even too small and never had this much trouble) Leg and Arm openings-- tight, almost constrictive, but not uncomfortable. Body-- very wide from the thighs and low waist all the way up to the mid back- admittedly the size six would have been better here. Chest/Shoulders-- Very tight. Makes on/off Incredibly difficult. Arms-- tight and slightly long, and I have an ape index of 4 inches (my arm reach is 4 inches longer than my total height!) Neck- this thing could strangle you. Overall, I probably should have tried a size six. BUT with the neck being insanely tight on an 8, I would not have been able to deal a size 6. Bottom line, this suit does wonders for the environment. It is like the Tesla of electric cars... innovative, high quality,... but DEFINITELY not for the masses yet. Patagonia, please address fit design and I'd be so happy to try again...

Great performance, but terrible to put on and take off

This is an amazing wetsuit for keeping you comfortable in cold water. I am a total temperature wienie, dont typically swim in SF Bay, but pool closures and restrictions motivated me to try bay swimming again. While this wetsuit keeps me incredibly comfortable temperature-wise, its a total bear to put on and take off. Is crazy hard without a friend ... Read Moreto assist. Am wondering if there are any tricks to taking this on and off; am thinking because of natural materials, may not be advisable to use certain products like with neoprene wetsuits to help get the wetsuit on. Thanks in advance for any advice on this. Other than getting the wetsuit on and off, definitely one of my best pandemic purchases.

Thanks for the feedback on the warmth of your Women's R2® Yulex® Front-Zip Full Wetsuit. We are so glad you're getting outside for your exercise and enjoying wild places. As far as getting in and out of your suit -- the easiest way to get it on is to reach down through the neck and grab the waist then pull it on like a pair of pants, then put your left arm in, then the right and pull the neck gasket over your head last before zipping. Getting out is the same, but in reverse. Hope that helps!

High quality wetsuit

This wetsuit keeps me so warm while surfing; I could stay in the ocean for hours. Overall, awesome wetsuit but the neck is super tight. Im hoping it will loosen up a bit over time.
