Discount Rash Vests & Rash Guards
A Rash Guard (aka Rash Vest or Rashie) is a soft and stretchy t-shirt that is either short sleeved or long sleeved. As the name suggests, a rash guard is designed to protect the wearer from rashes caused by abrasion either by sand or salt water (or both). They are also excellent for protecting from U.V. sunburn.
Rash Guards are either worn by themselves or under a wetsuit and are equally effective in either situation. On their own they add an excellent protective layer against the skin when the weather is too warm for a wetsuit. They are also especially good at protecting the skin when it is very warm but you still want to wear a buoyancy aid or impact vest. Under a wetsuit Rash Guards prevent irritation and chaffing in sensitive areas (such as the armpits and chest) when salty and sandy water has entered your wetsuit.
