Most wet­suits are neo­prene – a syn­thetic rub­ber usu­ally made from petroleu­moleum­based sub­stances. The en­vi­ron­men­tally men­tally friendly al­ter­na­tive is Patag­o­nia’s ia’s pro­pri­etary Yulex: a blend of 85 % nat­u­ral rub­ber from sus­tain­able e sources and 15 % chlo­rine-free syn­thetic c rub­ber. Yulex has the same in­su­lat­ing prop­er­ties as neo­prene, but Patag­o­nia says s that the man­u­fac­tur­ing process is much bet­ter for the planet. It’s also a sim­ply bril­liant wet­suit, with a form-fit­ting cut, good stretch retch in move­ment ar­eas, a re­place­able e zip­per to ex­tend the life­span of the suit, uit, and ex­tra-durable knee pads and an­kle cuffs. It’s de­signed for surf­ing, but it will work for any ac­tive wa­ter sports. rts. The suit is avail­able with or with­out a hood and in var­i­ous thick­nesses for wa­ter tem­per­a­tures rang­ing from 3 – 16° C. There are also some ’80s-in­spired ired colour­ways if you’re not a fan of f black. at go­ne­out­door.com door.com
