Useful underlay for colder days

Nice fit, lovely and supple material. Well made and durable. Goes well under an R4 on extra chilly winter days in Maine. Very happy to have it.

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](

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.

surf wetsuit vest

Without the zipper in back that my previous vest had, it's a little harder to get on and off but it works just as well as the original otherwise.

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’ 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.

very good

I am 6'4" and weight 280#, so big guy and the XXL is very tight but does fit. Patagonia needs to make some clothing in XXXL for us baby boomers who have added a few pounds over the years. I use it for swimming laps

Yulex Vest

For SUP race board - freedom of movement in shoulders but tight enough to provide warmth when exposed.

Exactly what I suspected

Just an all-around great wetsuit vest. I’ll be trying my best to wear it out.

Solid item

True to size, large fit snugly. (I'm 6'1" 185 lb.) Plenty of room in arm holes so no chafing. Able to stay in the water for hours in Fiji. Similar to other Yulex items, getting it off is a challenge, but worth it.
