They’re called waves of consequence for good reason. Developed in collaboration with Patagonia ambassadors Kohl Christensen and Ramón Navarro, the R1® Impact Suit provides purpose-built body protection and supplemental flotation for increased safety in the heaviest and most hazardous surf. Suitable for all temperatures, lined with stretchy 100% recycled polyester and made from high-quality 1.5mm neoprene that meets our rigorous standards for strength, durability and flex, the vest can be by worn by itself in warm water or under a full suit in cooler conditions. The anatomically placed 25mm EVA foam panels offer impact cushioning for the core, thighs and seat without restricting the quickness and freedom of movement needed in big waves. Patterned to hold snug to the body through the strongest underwater turbulence, the zipperless design is entered through either of the two armholes; flatlock seam construction provides streamlined comfort and additional durability. Exterior face fabric is durable, water-resistant 88% recycled polyester/12% spandex.

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.
