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

Size runs very small
I normally wear a size large. I ordered this item in XL and it was much too small.
Thank you for your review on our R1 Lite Yulex Wetsuit Vest. We're so sorry to hear of the size discrepancies. Our suit's are meant to feel tight, yet they should still be comfortable and should loosen over time. With this in mind, if you still feel like it was way too small, it's covered under our Ironclad Guarantee. Feel free to [send it back to us](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
Way off spec.
I'm a huge fan of Patagonia, and of Gerry Lopez and usually (*I'm a bigger guy) I can count on most Patagonia Products to be true to size, better than any other brand. My XXL vest was almost 3 sizes smaller (Fitting like a medium) I'm noticing this and some of the most recent woven are fitting more snug and too modern.
Perfect fit vest
I live in los cabos and the water varies from 72-86. I wear this vest all year round. This is the second one i have owned. The first one is about 2 years old and still in good condition. I like the little bit longer fit so it doesnt pull up when getting worked under water. Definitely recommend
Surf vest Review;
I am a surfer on the West Coast of Puerto Rico where water temperature is in the 80’s, but if your surf sessions are 41/2 hours long like mine usually are, the chill factor crip’s in.The R1 lite vest gives me that protection against the element’s.plus went there are good waves,I surf multiple day’s of the week and this vest gives me a shield agains... Read Moret wax rash on my chest.The only reason I don’t give it 5 stars is because of the friction it creates under my armpit’s, I have to used on top of a rash guard.
