Sharkskin Performance Wear Pro Long Sleeve Unisex - CLEARANCE
Sharkskin Rapid Dry has addressed many of the drawbacks of a traditional rash guard while enhancing the benefits. First while close fitting and very flexible the more relaxed fit looks great and can be worn all day. Users often comment that they “live” in their Rapid Dry, wearing it in the ocean, around the pool and to the bar after a day of fun in the sun.
Rapid Dry is a lightweight fast-drying fabric in which the material is “infused” and then “heat set” with a water resistant treatment (WRT). The result is a fabric that is vastly superior in water shedding and lasts much longer than traditional treatments.
Rapid Dry fabric is warmer and many times more durable than traditional lycra rash guards. It is highly resistant to sun, salt, 100% chlorine proof, holds its shape extremely well and is UPF 50+ for the ultimate protection from the sun.
