Here's what other sites are saying:

They're called waves of consequence for good reason. Developed in collaboration with Patagonia ambassadors Kohl Christensen and Ramon Navarro, the R1(R) 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.
