    Guilt-free performance.

    The Patagonia Men's R1 Lite Yulex Vest eliminates the harmful impact of traditional wetsuits by replacing neoprene with Yulex natural rubber. This bio-based rubber offers the same warmth and performance capabilities of neoprene, but without requiring toxic chemicals and petroleum intensive methods. Because of this significant reduction in petroleum, Patagonia claims an impressive 80% reduction in CO2 emissions from traditional wetsuit production.

    This 1.5-millimeter vest is essential for cutting the chill of early mornings and breezy conditions. It's rated for water temps ranging from 65 to 75 degrees, making it a great addition to your warm water arsenal. The pullover design maximizes flexibility when you're paddling into the line-up and dropping into clean summer swells. Smooth flatlock seams won't chafe or irritate your skin after hours of continuous wear. There's also a rubberized waist gasket that keeps water from pouring inside and chilling your core.

    Great Wetsuit

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Patagonai Yulex spring suits are great for getting out there when the water is just a bit nippier than you'd like.
