Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Our neoprene-free Yulex(R) 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(R) 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. With an anatomical, motion-focused design that maximizes comfort and flexibility while minimizing weight, the R2(R) Yulex Front-Zip Hooded Full Suit is 3.5mm in the torso and thighs (hood: 2mm), lined with high-stretch, fast-drying 51% recycled polyester/44% polyester/5% spandex inverted microgrid; 3mm in the arms and legs, lined with high-stretch, fast-drying 100% recycled polyester jersey; the face fabric is 85% recycled polyester/15% spandex. The floating front-zip features a corrosion-proof zipper and asymmetrical flap for better seal; the Salmi(R) zipper is fully replaceable to extend the suit's lifespan. Supratex kneepads and ankle cuffs provide excellent abrasion resistance and increased durability. 100% external seam sealing; all seams are triple glued and internally taped. Adjustable hood opening has cord lock for custom fit. Easy-access key loop included. Suggested water temperatures: 55-60deg F/13-16deg C.
