Mens Fade HC Short Sleeve Black/Blue Rashvest from Rip Curl.
Quick drying, stylish and super soft, the rash vest can be worn under a wetsuit as a base layer or even as protection from the sun as a lightweight top by itself.
Rip Curl ensure that all their materials are laboratory tested and are certified as having a 50 UPF rating, which is the highest protection rating available for fabrics. Standard summer fabrics often have a UPF rating of around 6.
UPF stands for Ultraviolet Protection Factor. A UPF rating of 50 will usually block out 97.5% – 98% of UV, which are the harmful rays produced by the sun.
