We recently discovered that certain styles of the Capilene® Cool Daily and the Tropic Comfort product lines do not meet the 50+ UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) rating we claimed for them. They still offer solid UV protection—it’s just not as much as advertised. If you own one of these shirts, click below for more information.Learn More

The most comfy rash guard ever
I typically wear a small in Patagonia items so I would say the fit was true to Patagonia size standards but I'm typically a medium is most other brands. The small fits perfectly and is so comfortable and made of really durable fabric, I'm so happy with my purchase and my protected skin is also very happy!
This is the second rash guard I have purchased by Patagonia. I surf every day (surf school) and I love this rash guard because it has a small turtleneck and long enough sleeves for me. I would really like to have thumbholes and a longer neck for better sun protection but overall this is a great rashguard that I recommend.
Great for swimming with sun protection
I really love how this is fashionable and offers me protection from the sun. This long sleeve swim shirt is my second one! Now own two! I wear it for outdoors water aerobics and swimming. When I was a young woman I had enough exposure to the sun to last a lifetime. Cant afford more sun exposure while active outdoors in my high elevation Utah.
purchased for rafting the Colorado
This rash guard is perfect for rafting and other water sports. Its sun protection and quick drying fabric is outstanding. The shirt has good coverage. It is slim fitting and, while I usually wear a Patagonia medium, which is what i ordered, I had to exchange it for a large.
Be careful, easily damaged
The fit is amazing and its cool when wet. Unfortunately, I wore it for the first time to the pool and there is pilling/faded on the boobs from just laying against the side of the pool for a few minutes. Disappointed, expected better quality
Hi Amy, we're so sorry to hear about the pilling and fading on the Women's Micro Swell Rashguard. Sadly, pilling will happen, especially when it rubs against the coarse stucco of most pools. Removing pills can help lengthen the life of your Patagonia gear, plus it’s easy to do with a sweater stone. Learn about removing pills at wornwear.com. As for the fading, nothing can be done about that, but we'd be happy to return or exchange that under our Ironclad Guarantee. You're welcome to begin either process here, https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html.
I love the rash guard and I use it for casual pool use to reduce sun exposure. I was surprised and disappointed how quickly it faded, going several shades lighter after about six uses. I wear this with a suit in the "Palms of my Heart" suit design and while it matched very well initially, now they look totally different. I found the size,...

I'd love to love this item because I need a rashie for a surf trip and outdoor swimming and this one is well-made of a nice water fabric. I'm usually a medium in Patagonia tops but this one in medium was super tight across the bust (I'm a 32F). I think a large would fit across the top but I really didn't like the print and color... Read More choices enough to reorder. I tried the bird print and while I'd like it on a wall, I found it to be just too much in a shirt. I'm wishing for solids or color blocks in citrus colors. Meanwhile, I have a capilene LS that I can swim in. Maybe next year.
I bought a medium and large at the same time due to having two kids in 2.5 years. I’m currently 135 lbs. 5’6, 32DD. While I have hopes to slim down a little more, I decided to stay with the Medium. It’s snug, but hides my areas I want to improve (with the print that I bought). The large was ok and hid everything really well, but it would have been ... Read Moretoo uncomfortable to swim in. Glad I stuck with the medium.
