We reformulated the Yulex® material in our spring suits to make it lighter, stretchier and more comfortable. Made of 85% natural rubber/15% synthetic rubber by polymer content that replaces a petroleum-based material with a plant-based one, they offer the same performance attributes as conventional stretch neoprene while reducing CO2 emissions by up to ~80% in the manufacturing process. Tapped 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. Providing supplemental warmth and sun protection for warm-water surfing, the neoprene-free R1® Lite Yulex® Vest is 1.5mm thick, with a stretchy and fast-drying 100% recycled polyester interior lining; the exterior fabric is made of durable, water-resistant 88% recycled polyester/12% spandex. The exterior fabric and interior 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 comfort and flex; other features include a rubberized waist gasket and an adjustable waist and cord lock to help keep the vest in place. Seams are sewn with flatlock construction for next-to-skin comfort and durability. Made in a Fair Trade Certified™ facility. Suggested water temperatures: 65–75° F/18–23° C.
