Our 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, we blend the natural rubber with chlorine-free synthetic rubber to increase ozone- and UV-resistance and meet our rigorous standards for strength, stretch and durability. Providing comfort, flexibility and sun protection with minimal weight, the pared-down R1® Lite Yulex™ Long John is 2mm with a high-stretch, fast-drying 100% recycled polyester lining; the face fabric is 88% recycled polyester/12% elastane. The open-arm design offers full freedom of motion for paddling and other high-output activities, and a center-back zip allows quick entry. All seams have flatlock construction for next-to-skin comfort. Easy-access key loop included. Suggested water temperatures: 18–23° C.
