Detailed Description

Ideal for an outdoor swim, the Yulex® Long Sleeve Swimsuit is made from flexible 1.5mm Yulex® Natural Rubber and protected with soft but durable recycled polyester fabrics. Its technical composition, combined with full coverage across the back and arms, provide core warmth where it matters.

Shield yourself from the elements but enjoy its superior freedom of movement.

The suit features flattering panel placement and includes a seamless underarm panel for enhanced flexibility. Every seam is durable, sleek, and minimises chafing thanks to their flatlock construction and their increased stretch lends the suit flexibility too. The YKK front zip and large zip pull makes getting it on and off much easier and once zipped up, a contoured collar fits snuggly around the neck for a comfortable seal. To keep the suit in place and stop unwanted cold water from entering you will find a zig zag stitch on the leg openings and cuffs.

The Long Sleeve Swimsuit will have a slightly looser fit than your standard Tri wetsuit but must be tight to offer maximum warmth. It can be worn alone or under a wetsuit for added insulation.

Sustainability

These Fourth Element Swimsuits are part of their Ocean Positive range made using recycled nylon from ghost fishing nets and other discarded waste.  ‘Ghost nets’ amount to over 600,000 tonnes of lost gear every year. The main hazard is to marine life – from invertebrates to large marine mammals. They continue to fish, long after they have been abandoned, and account for countless lives. The netting, very slow to degrade, scrubs coral, creating a desolate seascape where they are dragged over the reef by shifting currents.

Now, all over the world, dive teams are removing these ghost nets from the wrecks and reefs, often at great depths, and bringing them up to the surface where they can be recycled and spun into nylon yarn.
