Why Do You Need a Rash Guard?

The rash guard has developed and expanded to become the top choice for a range of aquatic activities since it was first created in the middle of the 1980s as a base layer for surfers to protect them from chafe-causing, over-lock wetsuit seams. This thin, single-layer polyester/elastane top addresses many common “pain points” associated with spending prolonged periods of time in the water and sun. It is available in a variety of fits and features and can be used for everything from surfing to fishing.

If you spend a lot of time in the water, surfing, or doing some other aquatic sport, you need to have a well-fitted, good-quality rash guard.

When Do You Need a Rash Guard?

If you engage in the following activities, make sure to have your rash guard on.

  1. Surfing: Rash guards are a must-have item to avoid suffering from chafing and sunburn if you want to surf, paddle, wakeboard, or participate in any other water-related boardsport while the weather is warm and the sun is out.
  2. Fishing and Boating: Anglers in warm/tropical locations have access to more technological rash guard solutions. You’ll want to protect yourself from UV rays that are unrelenting and regular splashing when spending the day on a boat. A rash guard’s quick-drying and water-repellent qualities make it a more lightweight alternative to a waterproof shell, with the added benefit of complete sun protection.
  3. Other Recreational Activities: Rash guards can help you avoid a lot of pain and discomfort the following morning if you plan on participating in any warm-water recreational activity in the sun.

Pick the Best Fit

When it comes to fit, rash guards are two types: tight or performance fit and loose-fit. Rash guards designed for high-performance exercises are technically more advanced and more form-fitting. Loose-fit rash guards, also called “surf shirts” or “surf tees,” have a t-shirt-like fit that makes them ideal for other aquatic activities while providing the technical protection of a regular rash guard.

What Else to Wear with a Rash Guard?

You can incorporate your rash guard with other layers of protective gear in two ways:

  • Outer layer: The most common usage for a rash guard is as a single-layer top, replacing a t-shirt, wetsuit jacket, or thin, waterproof shell. The best bottom to wear with a rash guard is a swimsuit or trunk, especially for more demanding water sports.
  • Base layer: Rash guards are a good base layer to use underneath rougher outer layers like wetsuit short johns or wake vests.
