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.

Ms R1® Lite Yulex® Long-Sleeved Top

August 19, 2023

Love this jacket

Bought this to replace an old 1.5mm ONeill jacket that was no longer functional, and have been very happy with it so far. Perfect for warm summer days in So Cal, almost too warm when I wore it on a hot day last week. It will also be great when visiting Hawaii to keep the wind chill off. As others have mentioned it runs a little tight, but as I wear... Read More a Medium in all 3 of my other Patagonia wetsuits, I would say its well within the size range, and once its wet it is a little more flexible. Overall, very happy with this top and look forward to wearing it the rest of this summer.

Long Sleeve Wetsuit Top

This is the go to Hawaii top for water sports. These tops last me more than one season and I wear them every day. They have started to fit smaller for the size so I order a XL when I should be a large- 6'0'' x 180 lbs. Eventually they wear out in the top neck area esp. the back neck between the shoulders. Its a streamlined design and... Read More I don't think anything should be added. A more flexible neoprine could be an upgrade. Thank you

To be honest, I have

To be honest, I have not used it in the water yet because its not quite warm enough. I can tell you from just trying it on, it fits perfect and not restricted at all.

Runs small

As expected, this is a high quality product from Patagonia. I was a bit nervous about the Yulex material but it was comfortable. Unfortunately, the product runs small (seems to be a theme for wetsuits). I am 6'4" and about 215 lbs and ordered a XXL and the sleeves and torso were both short. Unfortunately I had to return the item.

Exactly what I was looking for

I'm 6'2' 210lbs. Fit's great. Plenty tight but still comfortable. Perfect amount of insulation for the bodyboarding I do on the big island.

so far so good

I bought this for surfing in southern california summers, it is now October water temp is 70 and its nice and warm. It seems to be well made and the Yulex is warm, stretchy, dries fast. I'm 5'11 170-175 lbs and the large fits nice and snug, I'm usually between sizes (Medium-Large) so size up one if you are uncertain.

Buttery soft wetsuit top

The rubber is buttery soft. I am 5'10, 200 lbs. and ordered the Large. I tried on the top when it arrived in the mail. It felt really tight at first, but after a long surf session in the water, it did not feel tight fitting anymore. This is a super comfortable top that I would recommend, and buy again. Thanks Patagonia for another excellent pr... Read Moreoduct.

Tropical Protection

Great surf jacket to battle the offshores in the tropics. Buy a little small it loosens in the water.

Good fit.

This is the first Patagonia wetsuit that I have purchased. I can't attest to the durability of the product because I just received it. It fits great and seems to be high quality. Hopefully the production is as easy on the environment as Patagonia claims.

Use this pull over wettie on the boat and for diving. Mens have a great shoulder flex and comfortable all day.
