Stay warm while you wait.
Things can get chilly even when the water's warm and the sun's out, so Patagonia designed the R1 1.5mm Women's Long-Sleeve Top to cut the chill when you're waiting for the perfect set to roll in. The stretchy 1.5mm neoprene is laminated to a recycled polyester face that keeps the wind from sucking away all your core heat, while flatlock seams prevent chafing and are glued, bartacked, and Melco reinforced in key areas to lengthen the life of your suit. There's a hem drawcord as well, to ensure a snug fit, and the cuffs are heat pressed to form a snug seal against cold water and chilly air.

- Q & A
Stoked on this wetsuit top
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I took this top to Zion in March for a weekend of canyoneering. We hiked for 12 miles through Orderville Canyon. The second half of the technical hike was in waist deep water, and my wetsuit didn't have sleeves. I put this top over my sleeveless wetsuit and it kept me dry and warm! The water was around 40 degrees in the coldest parts of the canyon so I was very happy to have this top to protect my arms! Definitely recommend this for any cold water adventures!
