PATAGONIA W'S R1 LITE YULEX LONG SLEEVE TOP
Offering full-arm warmth and sun protection, Patagonia’s 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.
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, stretch and durability.
The interior lining is stretchy and fast-drying 100% recycled polyester; 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 snug to the body for maximum comfort and flex; other features include a vertical front-zip entry with corrosion-proof Salmi® zipper and an easy-access key loop.
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.
