Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice feel, great design but sizing is a bit off I was in need of a couple new sports bras for the upcoming season. I am 5'2'' 110 lbs and a B cup. I tried on the XS which is usually my go to size in most things and I felt just a little "squished" so I grabbed the S and headed home. I set out on my first back packing trip last week wearing one and immediately noticed it started to gap in the front and rubbed along the armpits where my back pack strap was. I would say its a little wide for smaller frames perhaps? I will be going back to either get the XS and deal with the tightness or look for another Patagonia sports bra that fits a little better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good I tried this on when I knew i was going to buy it, and I can safely say that as a pretty heavy chested woman, it's a great bra for hiking and cycling! Very light and puts little to no strain on my back even after 6-8 hours of rigorous activity. However, I wouldn't choose this as a trail running/running bra, not enough support for that. But I love the design and feel, just wish there were some bras made with more support.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Has Patagonia gotten cheaper? I love my Patagonia sports bras, and was excited to purchase this one in yellow. It's gorgeous, but feels much thinner than the others I own. It's definitely less supportive, so this will be a yoga bra instead of a running bra! I'm keeping it because it's still comfortable and will still work, but I'm disappointed in the lower quality fabric choice and hope this isn't a trend in Patagonia products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Still A Great Product I bought three of these bras in different colors to replace the ones I bought in 2005-2006. (For the record...those bras are still in good shape...they just don't fit as I've gained a few pounds.) They are the usual great Patagonia style and quality but I was disappointed in the design. My old ones were cut higher across the chest and around the band...these are cut much lower. I'm 6' tall and need the higher cut to provide more support and coverage. These new ones fit but I wish they still had the same cut as previous versions.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great at First, But Rides Up After a Few Wears I ditched all of my bras, replacing them with these. At first they are so comfortable! However, after just a few wears, they stretch out-of-shape enough that I needed to tug at the bottom to keep them in the right place. I guess this indicates that the bottom elastic loses shape WAY too quickly. My entire lot of them will be returned, sadly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this sports bra. This is my absolute favorite sports bra! The straps make it super comfy and it has the perfect amount of compression for hiking. I wear this bra on all my hiking trips. I am 5'3" and 110lbs and bought the small and it fit perfectly. I love it because it's not too tight and not too loose. It provides the perfect amount of coverage for smaller chested women like myself.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good are previous version The women's active sports bra with the wider straps was just so much nicer! The straps don't dig in to your as much. So glad I still have an older version to wear all-day on the days I'll be doing activities. This bra is fine, but I wouldn't wear it all day (or while hiking) due to the digging-in problem. And I wouldn't use either bra (this version and the older one) for anything more intense than hiking - not a lot of support. Basically, Patagonia please bring back the wide strap!!
