Scubapro Everflex Yulex Dive Steamer
Instead of traditional petroleum-based neoprene, this wetsuit provides thermal protection using a plant-based foam called Yulex dive. This material is made from FSC-certified natural rubber and specifically formulated to resist compression at depth. Outer seams are double blind-stitched for durability, and the inner seams are glued using a solvent-free adhesive. Recycled plastic bottles are used to create the suit’s lining, which is comfortable against bare skin. Our 3/2mm suit was perfect for a long day in Florida’s 72-degree freshwater springs. Additional thicknesses are available, each with gender-specific sizing.
