Protect the ocean so it can protect us

Our future is tied to the ocean. Its shared seas connect us through food, culture and sport. The home of amazing, abundant life, it’s also a powerful climate solution. Yet the practice of bottom trawling threatens to destroy this precious resource—bulldozing our ocean floor, undermining small-scale fisheries and deepening the climate crisis. Let's end this destructive practice, starting with an immediate ban in marine protected areas and inshore zones.

Very nice

very small in size. would help with a little more realistic guiding on wetsuits. I love Patagonia, and have so much - every season, including for kids!

More about the fit

More about the fit. It's a wetsuit so buy at least one size up. If you have really long arms, it will not be as short as most W wetsuit tops. It will hit just before your hands. I am 5'9" 135, 36B/C with most of my height in my legs, and the 10 is a good fit -- but -- with too much room in the breast area. I guess Patagonia thinks I ... Read Moreshould have a larger chest? An 8 would be too tight in the arms for sure. If you are a D or higher, I think this will fit you.

Tight but Warm

This wet suit top was perfect for the cool temps of the Caribbean in winter. From past year's experience, I dreaded easing into the water for snorkeling & swimming, but this top kept me warm. It was a challenging to zip it up over my ample breasts, so women: keep your breast size in mind when ordering!! My much smaller daughter (size 2) fo... Read Moreund the top (size 10) perfectly suitable for her so we were able to share it. It somehow worked on both of us, but if I was reordering I'd go up a size.

Very small

I ordered a size 4 and I had to exchange it because it was WAY too small. I got the 6 but it is still very tight. I had to return it and got store credit. Not sure if I want to order the next size up or look elsewhere. The material seemed like it would keep me warm though

Child Size?

Opening this package, I honestly could only assume that this is an actual error on behalf of Patagonia and that these are for children. My full wetsuit (not from Patagonia) is a Size 8, and on average I wear a Med Top and Large Bottom in Patagonia clothing. After seeing other reviews about this running small, I bought this wetsuit jacket in Size 12... Read More. Runs small is an understatement. I hope Patagonia addresses this inconsistency in sizing.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review and we are incredibly sorry to hear about the sizing and fit difficulties. We will make sure to pass this along to our Product Design Team so they can take a look into the sizing on this product. In the meantime, please feel free to start your [return]( at any time!

Super Warm

Works great for aqua therapy in the pool in the winter. Easy to get on and off. The hem rolls up a bit, but maybe I have a short torso or should have purchased a smaller size.

Cold water relief

Perfect for those colder waters but warmer outside temps. Highly recommend.

Lovely and snug

Great jacket. I was wary of buying a wetsuit due to the environmental impact so really glad I found this. I wanted something to keep my core warm when swimming and the full length zip is perfect for ease of getting in and out of it easily. Great fit, stretches well so comfy despite being snug, and it's a good looking jacket. Lightweight so I c... Read Morean carry it easily and it dries quickly. I was able to go for a 4, being a UK 8, but I would imagine that could be tricky if you had a bigger bust.

Perfect and sustainable way to expand my swimming season

It does the job exactly as I hoped it would, I can go to colder water than usual to enjoy swimming and be comfortable without the hassle of putting on a full-body wet suit. The zipper allows me to adjust the neck tightness due to my obnoxious throat lipomas that might make pull-over-head garments unwearable for me (actually, during swimming, I can ... Read Morehave the zipper fully up, just need to unzip a bit before it gets wet and stretches a bit). I like the material - it performs well and the fact that it's not neoprene is what made me buy it - not even being that much more different price-wise than other neoprene-based products of a decent quality. I would just like to mention, that a wider range of sizes would be good so I can recommend this to more people. Not everyone who likes outdoor swimming fits in size 12 or under (I do just about, lucky me) - and the waist measurement aimed at a catwalk model made me doubt whether I should buy it as I thought I might not fit in (I know it should be snug but too snug won't make it work the best way). Luckily it fits, so I'm extremely happy with my purchase.

Too small--terrible sizing

this wet suit top looks wonderful as a product, well constructed and designed, with Patagonia's usual commitment to ethical construction. I have to return it, because the sizing is way off, even for Patagonia. I typically wear a M, or sometimes a L, in Patagonia. I am 5'5", 145 lbs, size 34G, and am an active 46 y.o. For this wetsuit... Read More top, I used the size chart, which includes helpful measurements. However, the largest size available was WAY too small for me. I cannot be the largest customer for this product, and so it's unacceptable to me that Patagonia is not offering this top in a more reasonable size range. Also, even if the top were offered in a size 14 or 16, which might have fit, that would have me ordering an XL or XXL. The labels don't matter to me, but the inconsistency does (a person should not have to navigate choosing a size range between M and XL). Please do better Patagonia!

I tried many Neoprene jackets for colder water swimming. They were sooo tight in the wrong places and many smelled like toxic rubber. When i saw the Patagonia choice i was excited. Ordered one size up from a usual 10 to a 12 because I'm slim but my bust is 34D. The jacket fit perfectly! And it keeps me warm for swimming in 65-75 degree water.... Read More Now i can go to the pool on days i wouldn't and enjoy a swim. I cant recommend Patagonia enough. They are taking measures to be ecologically friendly and have high quality stuff.
