Patagonias 3,2.5mm R1 Yulex is a true testament to its southern ocean roots. Durable, reliable and environmentally conscious, it has been thoughtfully designed from head to toe to withstand and endure the harshest of Australian winters. Noticeably more heavy duty then the majority of other tested suits, the major strength of the Patagonia came from its warmth and durability. “Warmth was its biggest asset. A really solid and secure suit, felt bomb proof” Sandy. Replacing neoprene with renewable natural rubber, the Yulex provides the same warmth and performance attributes as conventional neoprene while reducing C02 emissions by up to 80 percent. Fitted with external and internal sealing, floating front zip for adequate entry and supatrex kneepads, the Yulex was able to resist water entry and adjust comfortably to the individual’s body shape. “It’s sealed up really strong and the fur interior around the chest and kidneys keeps your vital organs warm” Nick. A very reliable option to withstand the varying elements of cold water surfing.
