When I was in California a couple of months back I found out the Patagonia had recently released a line of wetsuits. The neoprene has been derived from limestone rather than oil based products making the production a bit greener for the same final product. The wetsuits are lined with merino for extra insulation and come in the full spectrum of summer, spring and winter suits. I picked up an R1 long sleeve top, and now the water is a bit warmer, on a rare sunny day I'll be hitting up the water in that and a bikini....oooh and i might last about 20 minutes, that's what the British summer is all about...! The range is expensive but top notch...hopefully making their way to our shores sometime soon.
Patagonia also supported the making of Thomas Campbell's 'the Present'
