Men's Swim Shirts & Rash Guards
What is the difference between a men's swim shirt or a men's rash guard?
Swim shirts and rash guards both provide sun protection during water activities, but they have distinct differences. A swim shirt, also known as a swim top or swim tee, offers comfort and style for various water activities like swimming, snorkeling, or water aerobics. It covers the upper body with lightweight materials, providing men with sun protection without compromising mobility. On the other hand, a rash guard is specifically designed to shield the skin from irritation and abrasions caused by equipment contact in water sports. With a tighter fit and stretchy materials, rash guards are ideal for surfers, paddleboarders, and divers, preventing chafing and rashes from board rub or wax.
What style of swim shirt or rash guard is right for me?
When considering swim shirts or rash guards, there are a few factors for you to think about:
Fit: Consider the fit that you prefer—whether you like it loose or tight. Think about what would be most comfortable for you and the activities you plan to engage in. A looser fit offers more freedom of movement, while a tighter fit is ideal for minimizing drag during water sports.
Sleeve Length: Decide on the sleeve length based on your desired level of sun protection and coverage. A men's long sleeve rash guard or swim shirt provides more protection, which can be beneficial if you have sensitive skin or plan to spend extended periods under the sun. A short sleeve rash guard increases sun exposure and has a more casual look.
Design and Style: Choose a design and style that aligns with your personal taste. Whether you prefer solid colors, patterns, or graphic prints, select something that resonates with your fashion preferences and makes you feel confident. It can also be useful to consider the style of your favorite pair of swim trunks and select the most complimentary swim shirt or rash guard.
Material: All of our swim shirts and rash guards are rigorously tested and guaranteed to block 98% of UVA/UVB rays. With UPF 50+ sun protection that never washes out, our materials will ensure your comfort during water activities.
Versatility: If you want versatility, choose swim shirts or rash guards that can be worn beyond water activities. Opt for options that can double as casual wear or be used for other outdoor activities, pairing with your favorite sun protective pants, providing you with practicality and value.
Remember, the final decision depends on your personal preferences, intended use, and the specific requirements of the activities you'll be participating in. Choose something that suits your style, offers the functionality you need, and makes you feel comfortable and confident.
Extra sun protection with high neck and hooded rash guards
Sun protection is our mission, and we understand the risks associated with sun exposure. We know that men are particularly prone to developing melanoma on areas like the neck, ears, and scalp. To address this, we offer a range of products that provide comprehensive coverage. Our collection includes long sleeve sun shirts and rash guards to safeguard your arms, as well as high-neck rash guards to protect your neck. For enhanced protection, we also offer a hooded rash guard. However, if you choose a sun shirt or rash guard that doesn't cover those specific areas, we highly recommend investing in a sun protective hat to shield your skin from the sun's harmful rays. Rest assured, our products are recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation, ensuring you receive reliable sun protection.
