    Say goodbye to harmful neoprene.

    The Patagonia Men's R1 Lite Yulex Long-Sleeve Top eliminates the harmful impact of traditional wetsuits by replacing neoprene with Yulex natural rubber. This bio-based rubber maintains the same warmth and high-performance capabilities of neoprene, but without the petroleum and harmful chemicals required for neoprene production. It's 1.5-millimeters thick, making it a great addition for cutting the chill of breezy conditions and early mornings.

    Patagonia claims Yulex rubber reduces their wetsuit CO2 emissions by a whopping 80% over standard neoprene-based wetsuits. For greater insight into Yulex natural rubber, it's sourced from a Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified rubber plantation in the highlands of Guatemala. This gives Patagonia total oversight over the production process, maintaining the highest degree of environmental and social responsibility—all without deforesting sensitive ecosystems like many rubber plantations.

    • Performance wetsuit top sourced from natural rubber
    • Yulex natural rubber delivers sustainable warmth
    • 1.5mm thickness is best for 65 to 75ºF water temperatures
    • Recycled polyester lining for flexibility and quick drying
    • Rubberized waist gasket with adjustable waist + cord lock
    • Smooth flatlock seams won't chafe or irritate skin

    Sizing is extremely off

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Large

    Not sure if my experience was an anomaly, but I ordered a large ( I usually wear a medium) and this had to be a kid's large or something was wrong with this specific top. I've worn wetsuits for 10+ years and this sizing was completely off. Otherwise, the top seemed nice.

    Good Wetsuit

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Patagonia Yulex spring suit materials keep me in the water longer when its that not-quite-warm-enough temp.
