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.

They’re called waves of consequence for a reason.

Suitable for all temperatures, lined with 100% recycled polyester jersey and made from high-quality 1.5mm neoprene that meets our rigorous standards for strength, durability and stretch, it 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 while allowing unrestricted motion; a zipperless step-in side entry and flatlock seam construction provide streamlined comfort and hold the suit close to your body through the strongest hydraulic turbulence. Exterior face fabric is durable, water-resistant 88% recycled polyester/12% spandex. Made for all temperatures.

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 1.
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.
