  • 7/30/2020 Awesome vest

    5 Review Stars By Amity

    If you wish there were a sleeveless zip-up jacket to cover up your bathing suit while you are en route to the beach, hiking, etc, this is perfect. I have it in every style and color made by Carve Designs. They are meant to fit snugly, since it is designed as a surfing rash guard. Thus, I went one size up since I'm wearing it as a jacket (usually a medium and wear this in large). You can go swimming in it or wear it as a cover up when it's hot (I.e., over bikini top with skirt to go shopping). Love it.

    Fit: Feels true to size

  • 6/28/2020 This really cuts some chill from cooler water

    4 Review Stars By Grandma Sue

    Helps take the chill off the lap pool.
    Ordered a size larger then my usual size. Although fitting snugly keeps the same water that has been warmed by your body in place, my regular size needs to stretch too much.
    After a lot of exercise or swimming, the underarm are chaffs a bit.
    This is my third Carve Designs Duckdive vest.

    5 Review Stars By GS

    The vest allows movement.
    Two-way zipper is a nice feature.
    Not too heavy or thick.
    Easy to get on and more importantly, easy to get off afterwards when you are wet and out in the cold.
    I am a size 10-12 and Large was perfect.

    5 Review Stars By Wendy

    I bought this vest for teaching swim lessons where I am in the pool for 3 hours straight. I love the design and fabric. It keeps me warm and the sun off. I would like to see a cap sleeve version too for more sun protection. When swimming around in it, my arm started to get sore under the arm, but not too bad. I ordered a large and I am glad I did, even though I can often wear a medium. Great product. I may buy the long sleeve product.

  • 2/2/2018 A bit snug, but keeps me warm enough.

    3 Review Stars By Deidre

    A little snug, but I suppose it needs to be to keep you warm.

  • 12/18/2017 Love it After Returning for a Smaller Size

    5 Review Stars By sandy

    I ordered this in a medium (I'm 5'5", 130 lbs., 37.5" breasts). It felt big so returned for a small. It fits perfect. The quality and style is great. Can't wait to wear in the water.


    Fit: Feels too big

About This Brand

Carve Designs

On a surf trip to Mexico in 2003 Jennifer Hinton and Thayer Sylvester had a vision. They were two women surfers and athletes who were tired of squeezing their rears into boardshorts designed for juniors. Diving head first, they took a leap of faith, quit their jobs and dedicated themselves to designing and manufacturing boardshorts for women that would fit well and look great in and out of the water.

Since then, Carve Designs has evolved into an active apparel company offering a full range of technical water sports apres surf and lifestyle collections to take you through the seasons. Their goal is the make clothes that fit well and are functional, feminine and flattering. They love what they do: pioneering a brand for the Carve woman, one who is passionate, fun, versatile, organic, feminine and inspirational. As they embark on their sixth year at Carve Designs, they continue to enjoy the ride.
