Voluntary Recall: Some of our 50+ UPF styles missed the mark
Patagonia recently discovered that certain styles of the Capilene® Cool Daily and the Tropic Comfort product lines do not meet the 50+ UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) rating we claimed for them. We’ve pulled our existing inventory and they've halted the distribution of the affected styles until we can fix the problem.

They Still Offer Solid Sun Protection
Their tests confirm these products have a range of 17–45 UPF instead of 50+, averaging 34 UPF. If you own one of these styles, please know: Even at 17 UPF, the products block 92% of the sun’s ultraviolet rays. They still offer solid UV protection. It’s just not as much as advertised.

Check your style number:

Find the label (typically at the neck or side hem) and look on the back — it’s the number after the letters “STY”.
