Patagonia - R1 Lite Yulex Vest

99.00

Offering supplemental warmth and sun protection, our new, neoprene-free R1® Lite Yulex® Vest 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 Patagonia's rigorous standards for strength, stretch and durability. The interior lining is stretchy and fast-drying 100% recycled polyester; the streamlined anatomical design conforms to the body for maximum flex. Features include a rubberized waist gasket and an adjustable waist and cord lock to help keep the vest in place. The exterior face fabric is made of durable, water-resistant 88% recycled polyester/12% spandex; seams are sewn with flatlock construction for additional comfort and durability. Suggested water temperatures: 65–75° F/18–23° C.
