$179.95

A stretchy, neoprene-free wetsuit top made of 85% Yulex® natural rubber/15% synthetic rubber by polymer content, with 100% recycled polyester lining; the natural rubber is derived from sources that are Forest Stewardship Council® certified by the Rainforest Alliance. Suggested water temperatures: 65°–75° F/18°–23° C. Fair Trade Certified™ sewn.

This year we reformulated the Yulex® material in our spring suits, making them lighter, stretchier and more comfortable. Offering full-arm warmth, comfort and sun protection, the neoprene-free R1® Lite Yulex Long-Sleeved Top is made of 1.5mm 85% natural rubber/15% synthetic rubber by polymer content. Replacing a petroleum-based material with a plant-based one, it offers 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® 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. The interior lining is stretchy and fast-drying 100% recycled polyester; 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™ 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 rubberized waist gasket and an adjustable waist and cord lock to help keep the top in place. Seams are sewn with flatlock construction for next-to-skin comfort. Made in a Fair Trade Certified™ facility. Suggested water temperatures: 65–75° F/18–23° C.
