Great fit, poor quality

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I've been buying these bottoms ever since Patagonia started making swimwear, because I love the fit and coverage. Unfortunately this is the third pair in a row in which the fabric on the backside has completely worn away and lost its elasticity after about a year of regular use, to the point that is is completely see-through and unwearable. I've been extra careful, rinsing them out after every exposure to chlorine and saltwater, but to no avail. Patagonia will offer to replace them, however the pattern is never still available so I end up with a bunch of mismatched tops.

I think this happening because the back of the bottoms is unlined, unlike the front side or any of the swim tops. Until this changes, I'm afraid I will not be purchasing any more Patagonia swimwear.
