M's R1® Impact Suit,
We stand behind everything we make, including our wetsuits. But wetsuits require care if they are going to perform and wear the way they were intended. Patagonia is not responsible for wetsuits that are abused or show normal wear and tear over time. Scratches and fading are inevitable, as are tears from the occasional close call with a fin.

Recycled Polyester

In 1993, we adopted fleece into our product line made from post consumer recycled (PCR) plastic soda bottles. We were the first outdoor clothing manufacturer to do so. PCR® clothing was a positive step towards a more sustainable system – one that uses fewer resources, discards less and better protects people’s health.

Today, we’re able to utilize more sources for recycled polyester and offer it on more garments such as Capilene® baselayers, shell jackets, board shorts, and fleece. We now recycle used soda bottles, unusable manufacturing waste, and worn out garments (including our own) into polyester fibers to produce many of our clothes.

Using recycled polyester lessens our dependence on petroleum as a raw material source, curbs discards and reduces toxic emissions from incinerators.

Men's R1 Impact Suit is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unreal Comfortable Man bravo to the Malloy's if they had anything to do with this! I haven't worn it in any big surf on the outter reefs yet but Im definitely looking forward to the next day of bombing surf. Been a good winter in Hawaii so far ,. 20 foot plus surf on deck this weds/thurs so i'll give this Impact Suit a go. High quality craftsmanship and extremely comfortable on.. I give it a 5 Star rating easily ,. but my only constructive criticism is to place a zipper on on of the shoulders for much easier entry and exit. When your a 200-220lb guy like myself we cant slide into them like those 140lb sniveling grommets. The stitching ,. the wetsuit material is definitely A grade quality. I just think there maybe an easier way to get into and out of those things with a minor design change. Other then that ,. change nothing! Love this Impact Suit and looking forward to the next big day when mum buddies are snapping 9'0" pointy sticks ,... just like last weekend ! Cheeehuuu!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Safety I just bought the Impact suit and giving it a test down in Mainland Mexico beachbreaks. It fits well and provides a good amount of floatation. The padding is placed in good areas so you can still paddle like normal. You can still dive deep enough under waves if need be, do not worry that you will not be able to penetrate surface with these impact suits. The idea is that it will bring you back to the surface after a wipeout. If surfing big waves is your desire, consider keeping yourself safe. And also this suit makes it easier to rescue someone who is floating, if you were to be unconscious. Thanks for keeping us safe.
