Now made from lighter and stretchier 85% natural rubber/15% synthetic rubber by polymer content, our streamlined, low-bulk Yulex® Water Heater Hooded Vest easily extends any wetsuit’s thermal range by providing additional insulation for the head and body. Replacing a petroleum-based material with a plant-based one, the Yulex material 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, the natural rubber is blended with chlorine-free synthetic rubber to increase ozone- and UV-resistance and meet our rigorous standards for strength, stretch and durability. The 2mm hood has a warm and fast-drying thermal lining made with 95% polyester (51% recycled)/5% spandex microgrid; the 1.5mm body is lined with high-stretch 100% recycled polyester; the exterior fabric is made of durable, water-resistant 88% recycled polyester/12% spandex. The exterior fabric and interior linings 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). An outer-neck baffle sits over the wetsuit neck to prevent water entry, and the adjustable face opening has a cinch-locking elastic cord. Seams are glued and blindstitched for comfort and durability. Made in a Fair Trade Certified™ facility.
