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.
