Now made in a Fair Trade Certified(TM) facility, 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 new patterning for maximum flexibility and improved fit, the superlight R1(R) Lite Yulex(R) Front-Zip Full Suit is 2mm with a high-stretch, fast-drying 100% recycled polyester lining; the face fabric is 88% recycled polyester/12% spandex. The face fabric and lining are now solution dyed-using 86% less water than conventional dyeing-and are laminated with water-based AquaA(TM) glue that's free from harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The suit's floating front-zip entry features a corrosion-proof zipper and asymmetrical flap for better seal, stretch and range of motion through the chest and shoulders; the Salmi(R) zipper is fully replaceable to extend the suit's lifespan. All seams are triple glued, blindstitched and internally taped. Easy-access key loop included. Suggested water temperatures: 65-75deg F/18-23deg C.
