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.

Spring Suit Feedback

The sizing is really off and the zipper in the middle doesn't go down very far in order to get out of the suit :/ Not sure the overall use function was considered when constructing this suit.

Spring suit!

Love this for surfing! The zipper is a little weird in the front but doesn’t bother me when I’m surfing. Perfect spring suit.

Zipper placement is a problem

Overall this is a warm suit that is easy to paddle in, but the chunky zipper in the front is painful when laying on a surfboard. Not sure why the zipper isn't in the back because it's rather chunky plastic and it broke after 5 uses. However, Patagonia did make it right by honoring the warranty and providing me a 2 day shipping label to re... Read Morepair the zipper quickly. Also, since Yulex is more malleable than other wetsuit material, it does tend to ride up-for lack of a more delicate term-my butt crack. I will continue to use it once I get it back from the repair, but I probably wouldn't by this model again. And definitely order a size up because this suit legitimately runs small.

Cozy wetsuit

I am 5'10 165lb -ish. I purchased a size 12 and it fits snug. I usually wear a dress size 8, swim suit bottom size L and top M, so I would order a size up. I dive in 80f water and this keeps me pretty warm.

Warm and functional

The R1 long sleeve spring is a great suit. Its perfectly warm, fits well and comfortable.

This is exactly what I needed for spring paddling when a swim can get uncomfortable. The fit and comfort is perfection, and it's warm enough without being stifling. According to the size chart I would be a 6 but I bought an 8 because it's what was in stock, and it fits perfectly (large bust, short torso, extra long arms, 115 lbs). The onl... Read Morey thing I wish was different is the zipper, it could stand to be 2 inches longer and it would make getting in and out of this a lot easier. Right now I'm like Chris Farley changing in the airplane bathroom to get it on and off.
