Protect the ocean, save your skin. These rashguards are the perfect garment to put on instead of applying extra sunscreen which is likely to wash off, which recent studies show has been contributing to the pollution of coral. Many of our rashguards are made from recycled materials, reducing the amount of waste going to landfill or entering our oceans.
A rash guard, also known as rash vest or rashie, is an athletic shirt made of spandex and nylon or polyester. The name rash guard reflects the fact that the shirt protects the wearer against rashes caused by abrasion, or by sunburn from extended exposure to the sun.
A rash guard by itself is used for light coverage in warm temperatures for many other water sports including surfing, canoe polo, scuba diving, snorkeling, freediving, wakeboarding, bodysurfing, bodyboarding, windsurfing, kitesurfing, kayaking, stand up paddle surfing, or swimming.
