Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Pair your favorite board shorts or wetsuit bottoms with the men's Patagonia R1(R) Lite Yulex(R) front-zip long-sleeve wetsuit top to keep your arms and core warm and covered for water play.


We've reformulated the Yulex(R) material in our spring suits, making them lighter, stretchier and more comfortable. Made of 85% natural rubber/15% synthetic rubber by polymer content that replaces a petroleum-based material with a plant-based one, they offer the same 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 and durability. Offering full-arm warmth, comfort and sun protection, our redesigned, neoprene-free R1(R) Lite Yulex(R) Front-Zip Long-Sleeved Top is 1.5mm thick, with a stretchy and fast-drying 100% recycled polyester interior lining; the exterior face fabric is made of durable, water-resistant 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). A streamlined anatomical design holds close to the body for maximum flex, and other features include a vertical front-zip entry with corrosion-proof Salmi(R) zipper and a low-profile, fused-edge hem at the waist. For additional strength, seams are triple glued and blindstitched, and are internally spot taped at high-stress areas. Made in a Fair Trade Certified(TM) facility. Suggested water temperatures: 65-75deg F/18-23deg C.
