South Coast Surf Shops just got our very first Patagonia Wetsuit delivery, and all the shop employees are super stoked on it. The boxes were full of Patagonia R2 front-zip fullsuits, and everybody wanted to see the new “green” technology that Patagonia infused into their brand new wetsuit line.

As our own Rose McGinley-kase highlighted in our last newsletter, Patagonia is making eco-friendly wetsuits with a purpose. They’re thinner, warmer, naturally safer than traditionally manufactured wetsuits (according to Patagonia’s wetsuit features page). This makes the R2 a little better for the environment–and the end user–after all is said and done.

From PVC-free knee pads to chlorine-free marino wool lining, the Patagonia R2 embarks on a journey that most wetsuit manufacturers wouldn’t dare: finding functionality and overall sensibility in a final product that the general public can enjoy at a reasonable price.

After all, if it’s affordable AND green, people are way more likely to use it, right?
