Aqua 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.

100% Polyester

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost perfect tiny problem with white: see throug Comfortable wet and dry in and out of water - bit big for my size (ordered large based on my hips) but looser fit is comfortable. I love it - white looks great but is slightly see through. A white or nude sports bra or bikini top solves the problem. Call me vain I just love the look!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great color and functionality I ordered this in blue and it is a beautiful color. Fabric is soft and not scratchy like cheaper brands. Great sun protection in Hawaii. Holds up to waves and active water lifestyle.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Why doesn't it have a thumb hole? I thought it had a thumb hole based on the picture of the pink jacket, but it does not. That's just annoying. I can't figure out why they wouldn't have them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from L/S Water Jacket Navy/White 3X Stripe The water jacket is so soft, it feels good on my skin. It is lightweight, the colors are vibrant, it was wrinkle-free after a flight to Las Vegas and it dries quickly. I wore it to the pool and out on the streets. I highly recommend this jacket. My dermatologist recommended Coolibar years ago and I still love the products. I have purchased 4 of the 6" brim hats in different colors. I will not go outside without Coolibar.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Marcerella white water jacket I am 5’5” and 126 pounds. I normally wear a 4 top. I purchased this jacket in a medium to be able to wear it as a light weight evening wrap and because I have found coolibar knits to run small. It looks very nice but I’m giving 4 stars because it is so see through even when dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jacket well fitted, styling! Second jacket of this style purchased. The material is light in weight but high in style. I wear it often, even when I am not near water!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Protection Very light weight, which is what I was looking for. I live in Florida so we get short bursts of rain with lots of humidity. This is perfect for that quick run to the car or the a/c blowing on me in the restaurant or a light shower when paddleboading

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Zippered water shirt The zipper in salt water conditions gets stuck. Plastic zippers work better in humid , salty weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Multipurpose This is the best fit and I love that it zips on and off. The pattern is attractive and can be mixed with non swimming apparel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Water jacket! This is my second purchase from Coolibar. The fabric used in these jackets is superior to any other product listed from all companies selling this type of merchandise. The jacket is used three or four times a week in strong chlorine and still lasts for a few years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go-to swim jacket for years Nice fit, slightly loose. The color is gorgeous. The neck coverage is perfect coverage for my 3X/week aqua fit class. I have to replace these water jackets every year because the 50 spf DOES wear off over time. When it’s protecting it is AWESOME.... until it’s not. I know it’s time to replace when I start burning on my shoulders & upper arms. Although the fabric loses spf protection, the jacket fabric looks good and doesn’t fade in chlorine water. With a sale or clearance price, I’ll continue with the frequency of repurchasing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Macarella l/s water jacket It’s very comfortable but the zipper is hard to get started and I like that it keeps me safe from the sun.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Swim jacket Runs very big. Not form fitting. My sunscreen is tinted and it won't wash out of the sleeves even after washing in the washer. Great sun protection though.

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 3 out of 5 by from Water Jacket I purchased these type jackets a few years ago and the size was xl. They still fit. This jacket in a XXL was way too small so I had to send back

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The shoulder/upper arm area too big The chest area is too large, not proportional to its size

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.
Date published: 2020-06-28
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.
Date published: 2020-06-14
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!
Date published: 2020-06-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from High and dry and protected It’s comfortable good fitting and dries quickly. The high neck is an added bonus.
