Here's what other sites are saying:

The pace is pretty laid-back in the Country, but slabbing barrels over shallow reef make things a lot more serious once you're in the lineup. Offering supplemental warmth and sun protection for the winter season, our R1(R) Vest gives you reliable performance in heavy mid-Pacific surf. With anatomical patterning that conforms to the body for maximum flex, the vest's high-quality 1.5mm neoprene is lined with high-stretch 100% recycled polyester that keeps your core insulated while sets stack in from the north. Features include spandex binding at armholes and neck for comfort, and an elastic waist cinch with cord lock and hidden board short fastener to help keep the vest in place. The exterior face fabric is made of durable, water-resistant 88% recycled polyester/12% spandex; seams are sewn with flatlock construction for elevated comfort and durability. Suggested water temperatures: 60-65deg F/16-18deg C.
