The innovative design of the Yulex, produced quality results in this category. “Felt super snug behind the knees and comfortable under the arms” Nick. Typically a heavy duty suit, the Yulex impressed with its flexibility and range of movement. “Fit and comfort was spot on. For the overall weight of the suit, the flexibility was better than I expected” Sandy.
Ease of entry and exit
Fitted with supratratex ankle cuffs, Blake and Nick shared similar opinions towards ease of entry. “The lower quarter of the suit felt harder to get into to. The sudden change of material in those areas was noticeable” Blake.“It was snug and just needed a little more effort to get on than some of the other suits” Nick. Both agreed the upper body entry was functional and easy.
The Yulex excelled in keeping the surfers warm in the Victorian waters. “It was the warmest wetsuit I tested, I was cooking” Nick. “Insanely warm, the lining of the suit was so toasty” Sandy. All seams in the Patagonia are triple glued and 100% internally taped making it a well deserved favourite for overall warmth.
All surfers firmly agreed that the Patagonia was completely water resistant. “Its sealed up really tight so there was absolutely no water entry” Nick. “I didn’t notice any water entry, even after a few awkward floggings” Sandy. “I didn’t feel any water entry, it’s well and truly sealed up” Blake.
