Dear Patagonia community,
The COVID-19 pandemic is taking over communities around the world at an astounding rate. While testing availability in the United States is still limited, and so the extent of the virus’s spread is largely unknown, we want to do our part to protect everyone. The safety of our employees and our communities is our top priority, and we are taking responsible precautions to help stop the spread of this scary virus where we can.
We have temporarily closed our stores, offices and other operations in the United States. We have also closed stores and offices in Argentina, Chile, Japan and across Europe. Our Australia and South Korea operations will continue on a modified work schedule in stores and offices, with some stores closed depending on location. Employees who can work from home will do so. All Patagonia employees will continue to receive their regular pay during these closures.
We are working to find solutions to protect the safety of our warehouse team, and we hope to have an update about online orders in the coming weeks. We apologize that over the next two weeks there will be delays on orders and customer-service requests. We ask for your understanding and patience. We will continue to keep you updated with new developments.
We encourage our friends everywhere to take the extra precautions necessary to safeguard their health and that of others. It’s everyone’s responsibility to help stop the spread of this virus. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and your local health authorities are the best resources for updates and answers to questions.
Over the years, as our Patagonia community has been faced with challenges,I have always been inspired by how we emerge stronger and with an even deeper sense of purpose. We will persevere through this challenge, too.
Thank you for your business, loyalty and patience.
CEO and President
I am 5.9 and 130lbs. My measurements are: Bust 38, Waist 27, Hips 34, Rump 36.5. My height and weight put me in a size 12, but I was ordering another wetsuit in a size 10 so I sized down. I called Patagonia to talk about sizing with them and the man on the phone said the size chart is accurate. The 10 came in and it was too big. (Difficult to get o... Read Moren, but once in there were wrinkles in the stomach.) I exchanged the suit for a size 8 after speaking to someone else about sizing. The 8 was really difficult to get on, but looked like the correct size in my living room. I took it out in the water and it expanded significantly! The ankles and wrists are very tight so water wasn’t coming in and out, but the core was so loose, not what you want in a wetsuit. Additionally, this wetsuit is probably a better fit if you have a longer torso too and I am consistently a 7/8 Aqua Lung wetsuit.
This wetsuit is super well constructed, and surprisingly warm - I have yet to be cold in this suit even in the 48 degree water of Northern CA. I usually wear a size 8-10, I purchased the 10 and it was definitely snug, although it does stretch out a bit with a handful of uses. I would say size up a bit, or try them on first if you can. The material ... Read Moreisn't *quite* as stretchy as neoprene, but it is very well fitting, and doesn't allow any water to flush up the sleeves or ankles. I bought the back zip because I was tired of the front zip struggle, and I do really like it! The back zipper stays up fairly well while surfing, I occasionally have to yank it up a couple inches but it's not a big deal. I love the idea of the neck gasket, although I had to stretch it out quite a bit for it to be comfortable, again probably my fault for choosing an on-the-fence too small suit. Overall a really nice suit that I hope to keep wearing for years.
Sustainable, warm, worth the investment (so far)
This is my favorite wetsuit to date. I'm 5'6" 140 lbs and wear a size 4 dress and 6 pant. I have naturally broad shoulders and am active always running and surfing. I found the size 8 to be pretty suffocating and far too tight around my upper back and shoulders. The size 10 is a really good fit. Like all new wetsuits, it feels impo... Read Moressibly tight at first but I’m able to shimmy out within 1-2 minutes. I like the softness and pliability of the material. One of my favorite features is the internal gasket. I dislike a front-zipping wetsuit because I find dragging material over my head to be uncomfortable but the internal gasket is soft and thin-like. I also like the kneepads a lot and the fact that this is one of the most sustainable wetsuits on the market.
