Patagonia R1 Lite Yulex Long-Sleeve Top - Men's
The Patagonia Men's R1 Lite Yulex Long-Sleeve Top eliminates the harmful impact of traditional wetsuits by replacing neoprene with Yulex natural rubber. This bio-based rubber maintains the same warmth and high-performance capabilities of neoprene, but without the petroleum and harmful chemicals required for neoprene production. It's 1. 5-millimeters thick, making it a great addition for cutting the chill of breezy conditions and early mornings. Patagonia claims Yulex rubber reduces their wetsuit CO2 emissions by a whopping 80% over standard neoprene-based wetsuits. For greater insight into Yulex natural rubber, it's sourced from a Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified rubber plantation in the highlands of Guatemala. This gives Patagonia total oversight over the production process, maintaining the highest degree of environmental and social responsibility--all without deforesting sensitive ecosystems like many rubber plantations.
