Product Info

For a more secure and warm alternative to bikini bottoms, look to the sustainably crafted Patagonia R1 Lite Yulex Surf Shorts. Replacing traditional petroleum-based neoprene material with Patagonia s new plant-based Yulex® natural rubber, these shorts not only achieve the same high level performance (i.e. stretch and warmth) that you've come to expect from wetsuit fabrics, but reduce production CO2 emissions by approximately 80%. Stash your car/house key in the key loop equipped back pocket and paddle out in comfort and style in the Patagonia R1 Lite Yulex Surf Shorts.
