We created our Macarella Long Sleeve Water Jacket after getting numerous customer requests for an easy on-and-off version of our popular UV swim shirts. The jacket has all the exceptional features as our other sun protection swimwear: durable construction, a stylish cut, and our exclusive UV protective fabric. This long sleeve rash guard also comes in a rainbow of fun colors.

Fabric Details
Aqua Classic™ FabricAqua Classic™ Fabric
This is where it all started! We set out to develop a superior UPF 50+ swim fabric that didn’t feel heavy or rubbery like scuba rash guards. The result is a technically elegant, sun-safe swim fabric that is chlorine and saltwater resistant with a modest 4-way stretch. It’s silky smooth on the inside with a figure-flattering matte surface on the exterior. Customers love our Aqua Classic because it’s lightweight, quick dry and comfortable.

Coolibar’s sun protective clothing is designed to be worn in the sun and to provide excellent UV protection. If you have any questions about size, fit or style, talk to one of our Customer Service Representatives at 1-800-926-6509. They'll be happy to help, as well as offer expert advice on coordinating sunscreen hats with your wardrobe.

Measure circumference of hand around fullest part just below the knuckles, excluding thumb. Use right hand if right handed, and left hand if left-handed. Measure hand in inches and refer to the sizing chart for your glove size. Use the larger number to determine your size. People with extra long fingers, or who would like a looser fit should consider ordering a size up.

PLEASE NOTE: The measurements on our size chart are very similar to most major clothing companies. However, we generally allow for a relaxed fit - geared for outdoor activity, travel or a casual outing. Pants, skirts, blouses and polo shirts have extra room for comfort and are not body hugging.

When fitting jackets, cover-ups or any outerwear, our fit model is wearing the appropriate under layers that we would expect you to be wearing. You do not have to "size up" - we have done that for you.


Never try to measure yourself. Seek the help of a companion and use a soft tape measure.

  • Height: Stand in stocking feet, with feet together, back to the wall. Measure from top of head to the floor.
  • Arm: Bend arm to 90 degrees. Place hand on hip. Start at center of back of neck. Measure across the shoulder to the elbow and down to the wrist. Number of inches equals your sleeve length.
  • Bust/Chest: With the arms relaxed down at sides, measure fullest part of bust/chest, keeping tape parallel to floor.
  • Hip: Stand with heels together, keeping tape straight and parallel to the floor. Measure around fullest part.
  • Neck: Measure around base of the neck (the lowest point of the neck). Number of inches equals the neck size.
  • Inseam: Take a pair of pants that fits you well. Measure from the crotch seam to the bottom hem. Number of inches equal inseam length.
  • Rise: Start the tape at the center back waist, run the tape between your legs, pulling comfortably at the crotch and up your natural waist. Total measurement is your rise.
  • Waist: Measure around your waist, against your skin (not over your shirt or pants) at the height you normally wear your pants.
  • Head: Measure around your head, from the center of your forehead, keeping tape straight and parallel to the floor. Measure around fullest part.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from not a good fit I needed to return them, unfortunately they didn't fit right, too baggy and longer than the other water jackets that I buy..disappointed... Have you changed manufacturers?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty and light I really like this jacket, it's light and flattering. I actually got it for everyday use and not for swimming. I wear it when I go for a walk or driving.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best water jacket I love this water jacket! I've used one for the past few years. I had to return the last one since it was too large but I'll be reordering a smaller size.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Macarella jacket I purchased 2 of these jackets in extra small. I'm 5'4" and weigh 111 pounds. The blue one fit nicely. This black one was cut incorrectly, and did not taper at the waist. It was very boxy and loose on my body. Had to return it. May reorder in extra extra small for a more body hugging "scuba" type fit. Coolibar quality is typically exceptional, so i was very surprised to see 2 same items of same size cut so differently. It was at least 2-3 inches wider in the waist and hip. Possibly it was actually a larger size that had been mismarked.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Water jacket Beautiful color! Nice long sleeves fully cover my arms and wrists. I'm 5'4", 111 pounds and ordered extra small. Fits close to the body nicely through shoulders, bust and waist. Wish jacket was cut more narrow through the hips..a bit too roomy there.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lower quality than expected I was excited about this for my private pool, but after only a few times wearing it, it has already started to pill. I was about to buy another because I love the concept, but I’m not sure I should—if my jacket looks this bad after a couple of uses, it won’t last half a season!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from LOVE THE FABRIC Just bought this for a trip to Grand Cayman. I love the fabric, it's very light. I am 5'6" 135 pounds (pear shape) so I purchased a small. Nice fit in the shoulders, arm length is perfect, long enough to pull down over my hands if I want, but more comfortable than a shirt with the finger holes. Only drawback is that it is not more fitted. It's loose in the body which is ok for a cover up but seems like it won't be the best for swimming. I may return for an extra small, but worried the neck may be too tight when zipped up.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hole after 1 wear? I bought this for a Caribbean vacation. Love it until wore it- 1 wear and there is a hole in the seam. For the money one would think it would last more than one wear. Hope they make it right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ease and effective I bought my second water jacket last year. It is so nice to be able to just put on the jacket and head to the pool or beach without having to slather on sunscreen. I also like how easy it is to take off when wet, unlike pullover tops. Very comfortable. Full range of motion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best jacket ever! I have 5 of these jackets and have never been disappointed with the fit, sun protection, or the durability! Wore this in Hollywood Beach, FL in the new powder blue stripe, my new favorite. The fit is always good and I love the clean style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!! Kept me sunburn free in hot Cancun. MI I was amazed how well this jacket kept my skin safe, especially when we were in strong sun all day near the equator! It was so soft and dried easily and kept the cool temperature within. My family members now want one lol

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Easy too get pulled :( I purchased the aqua jacket for a trip to Hawaii. After 2 days of wearing it to and from the beach I noticed my jacket got several long threads ppulled! I felt devastated and disappointed that the brand new jacket now had a scar on them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from own similar short sleeve jacket I really enjoy my short sleeve coolibar swim jacket. Have a pool and live in hot climate so it is perfect to put on when going in for a swim. Easy to take on and cool with the short sleeves. I would like to buy another just like it, but Coolibar is not making the short sleeve version at this time. I keep checking hoping it will be added to the collection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy and lightweight! This is great jacket. It's like wearing a lightweight shirt that, as a bonus, provides sun protection. If you like a loser jacket that is more comfortable over long sleeves, I suggest sizing up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit I bought it a month ago. Beautiful color and good quality. I am 5'6" and about 130lb I got M size it is perfect fit not too tight. I will buy this jacket again in other colors. Absolutely love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Went swimming without worry. Other than getting a bit big and saggy when wet, this jacket was helpful during a recent vacation in the pool. I'm tall, so sleeves could have been a bit longer. Note re: mint green, the trim is actually navy blue. It looked black online and I ordered it to go with black swim tights. Maybe Coolibar can mention the trim colors as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Jacket!!! I have several of these Swim Jackets. Some as far back from 13 Years Ago. They hold up well, keep you well protected from the sun and keep you cool. Dries fast! I love the fit of these jackets while swimming laps in the pool or at the beach. I also have swim tights that I wear with the Jacket. Awesome pair. I have had a lot of melanoma. The products really do protect you from the sun. I also go shopping in town with my jackets. I just love the products. I also have the sarongs, hats, swim pants, tights and Rouche Swim Jackets. I recommend Coolibar to everyone....

Rated 2 out of 5 by from To Big I ordered this swim jacket in an X-Large and I swam in and it just hangs on me. Coolibar says if worn can’t send back. Now I’m stuck with a big swim jacket. $95 gone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible pilling of the fabric I purchased the black and white jacket for a trip to Nice. After 4 days of wearing it to and from the beach I noticed terrible pilling. The black and white stripes no longer look distinctive, it now looks grey in that area. A beautiful jacket that is no longer wearable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from comfortable I would like to see more full zipper long sleeve water jackets in more fun colors.I have told many people where they can get your products.
