M'S R1 VEST, Black (BLK-155)
M's R1® Vest,
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.

The pace is pretty laid-back in the Country, but slabbing barrels over shallow reef make things a lot more serious once you’re in the lineup. Offering supplemental warmth and sun protection for the winter season, our R1® Vest gives you reliable performance in heavy mid-Pacific surf. With anatomical patterning that conforms to the body for maximum flex, the vest’s high-quality 1.5mm neoprene is lined with high-stretch 100% recycled polyester that keeps your core insulated while sets stack in from the north. Features include spandex binding at armholes and neck for comfort, and an elastic waist cinch with cord lock and hidden board short fastener to help keep the vest in place. The exterior face fabric is made of durable, water-resistant 88% recycled polyester/12% spandex; seams are sewn with flatlock construction for elevated comfort and durability. Suggested water temperatures: 60-65° F/16-18° C.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from R1 Neoprene Vest works well sizing is small I bought the vest for spring and early summer sailing. Used it recently on a low 60 degree day with big winds, Vest worked well as an additional layer of warmth. By the chart I should have been a large, I am 5'9'' 170 lbs and wear a 41-42 sportcoat. I got an XL to be safe and am glad I did, the XL is quite snug fitting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome piece of gear So if I am honest and throw caution and my "manliness" to the wind I will tell you this. I bought this sweet tank from the good people at the Denver store (Christa is a gem) for a surf trip to Nicaragua. I was there two months and wore this shirt everyday. I get serious nipple destruction whenever I surf and I was worried about over heating down there but this tank kept me cool in the water and kept my wussy nips from getting destroyed. Thanks for making this killer garment. Cheers

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for warmer waters I wear this for spearfishing and snorkeling under a rash guard. It is great for the cooler months in South Florida/Keys when the water temps go into the 70s. One of my friends got his after he saw mine and uses his for surfing on Florida's east coast. He also gives it high marks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just What I Needed Bought this for my twice annual snorkeling trips with my main objectives being: something to keep the sun off of my back while providing some warmth - the R1 vest has done both perfectly. I've used it in ocean snorkeling as well as fresh water (cenote) and simply stated it has been excellent. It is a little difficult to put on and off, generally requiring an extra pair of hands, but I wouldn't want it any looser while in the water. It dries overnight if left out and is ready to go the next day. Easy to pack and has become invaluable for my water trips. On my trips others have immediately recognized the value and have asked me where I got it. Love it so much I bought my daughter the female version.
