Rash Vests

Men's Rash Vests

A men's rash vest is a very versatile piece of kit. They protect against rashes caused by a wetsuit rubbing on the skin and also protect your body against the UV rays from the sun.
If you find you are getting nasty rashes on the back of your neck from where your wetsuit rubs, invest in a rash vest before that rash turns into a nasty infection. If you are lucky enough to be jetting off to warmer climates and want a quick-drying UV protective garment to wear, buy a rash vest. We don't have to warn about the damage the sun can do to your skin.

Where Can I Buy A Men's Rash Vest With Sun Protection?

The concept of a rash vest was born on the beaches of Australia as a way for surfers to avoid getting rashes from the abrasion of harsh neoprene suits. Nowadays, wetsuits have progressed and softened so much that the chances of getting a rash is a lot smaller than what it used to be.

Today's boom in rash vests is primarily for getting protection from the harmful rays of the sun. Most families heading to the beach in the summer make sure that the children and parents each have a rash vest so they will not get sun burnt whilst playing in the sea. It really is important to protect yourself from the sun due to the rise in skin cancer.

Manufacturers make rash vests from a lightweight material that dries quickly, unlike a tee shirt. A great feature of these tops is that they now come in some really cool designs that look fashionable on anyone. So if you are taking the family to the beach, make sure all men, women, and children are stay protected by purchasing a rash vest. Brands that have UPF 50+ protection include O'Neill, Rip Curl, and C Skins.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

What is the difference between a rash vest and a wetsuit?

 

Whether you enjoy swimming or surfing for long periods, it's essential to keep your skin protected from the harsh sun, wind, and waves while in the water or on a surfboard. While a wetsuit's purpose is to keep the swimmer or surfer warm in cold water, a long-sleeve rash vest keeps their upper body covered to protect it from irritants like the sun. We all know how quickly a sunburn can ruin a fun day on the water.

The primary difference between a wetsuit and a rash vest lies in how they're built, considering that each can sometimes serve the other's purpose. A suit covers the entire body, while a rash vest covers the arms and the torso.
