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.

It’s 32 miles across the Ka’iwi Channel, but the last few can make it feel like 320. Developed with long-distance paddleboard athlete Zeb Walsh, the lightweight R1® Short John is made from high-quality 1.5mm neoprene that meets our rigorous standards for performance, durability and warmth. The high-stretch 100% recycled polyester lining dries fast and offers excellent comfort and flex, while the open-arm design provides essential freedom of movement for long miles in open water. Streamlined anatomical patterning fits close to the body, and seams are sewn with flatlock construction for additional comfort and strength. Spandex binding at the neck and armholes is cleanly finished; exterior face fabric is 88% recycled polyester/12% spandex. 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 1 out of 5 by from R1 Shorty Wore this for the first time on a small day-after a couple of minutes it flushes at the neck, gaps, loose fit , overall not good. Have worn most of patagonia wetsuits which are excellent-would give this 0 stars if I could-save your money.
