Giant Tahiti or grinding outer reefs, the R1™ Padded Big Wave Vest offers critical protection in heavy and hazardous surf. Built from durable 1mm and 1.5mm neoprene laminated to high-stretch 88% recycled polyester/12% spandex jersey, the formfitting design includes 11 ergonomically patterned 22mm EVA foam panels for upper-body padding and supplemental flotation in high-impact situations. Foam edges around the armholes are skived at 45 degrees for maximum range of motion; flatlock and zigzag sewing construction offers excellent strength and durability; spandex bindings along the neck, armholes and bottom hem provide a secure and comfortable fit. Nylon reinforcements at the center-front, back and side provide board-short tie-in compatibility. 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.
