We stand behind everything we make, including our wetsuits. But wetsuits require care if they are going to perform and wear the way they were intended. Patagonia is not responsible for wetsuits that are abused or show normal wear and tear over time. Scratches and fading are inevitable, as are tears from the occasional close call with a fin.

Our new, neoprene-free Yulex® 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® 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, performance-focused design that maximizes comfort and flexibility while minimizing weight, the R5® Yulex Front-Zip Hooded Full Suit is 6.5mm in the torso and thighs, 5mm in the arms and lower legs, and 4.5mm in the hood. The torso, legs and hood are lined with high-stretch, fast-drying 51% recycled polyester/44% polyester/5% spandex inverted microgrid; the arms are 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, stretch and range of motion through the chest and shoulders; unlike other designs, the Salmi® 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, blindstitched and internally taped. Adjustable hood opening has cord lock for custom fit. Easy-access key loop included. Suggested water temperatures: 32–38° F/0–3° C.

Men's R5 Yulex Fz Hooded Full Suit is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from hard get cold but also hard to paddle and exit I'd agree with the previous review that this suit is a tad tight around my chest but I can't help but feel that this is increased by rubbery properties of yulex, I think the arms should have been kept as neoprene, except for the cuffs which excel with this stronger stretch resistance of the yulex and the tapered ends, they do not budge. However in my opinion, after a good 50 hours of active use, paddling this suit is noticeably restrictive and fatiguing. If only the red area of the suit was the traditional neoprene, it would only be around 15% of the suit (not including the hood; but the neck would also benefit and those magic cuffs). Sure yulex does stretch but like natural rubber it does want to rebound fast and at 5.5mm on the arms, for me the R5 is somewhat an issue

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great quality, but runs small Great suit, but the sizing runs small. So far this winter I've had good experiences with the warmth and comfort of the suit but it's defiantly small in the chest. Please consider one design: A small water whistle on the zipper pull. The surfing community needs to take a page from the boating world. Whistles save lives and can be heard at great distances over the roar of water.
