Ladies Rash Vests

Women's Sun Protection Tops

A rash vest was invented by surfers to wear under a wetsuit and prevent rashes from wetsuit rubs. Although they are still used under wetsuits the main use is now as a sun protection top and mainly used on the beach. The great thing about a rash vest is they are sun protection factor 50+ so no need to apply sun lotion where you are covered by the garment. The major brands such as ONeill, Billabong and Roxy all produce very stylish tops and make fully use of colours and patterns. So choice we offer will not leave you disappointed as there is so much to choose from. If you feel the cold then check out our thermal rash vest range which uses polypro thermal material which is worn under a wetsuit for extra warmth.

Womens Sun Protection Top

Rash vest were invented in Australia in the 1970's for surfers to prevent nasty wetsuit rashes when the material would rub against the skin in the water. Since then the neoprenes have become far better and softer so rashes from wetsuits are far less then in past times. Rash vests or sun protection tops are now more about protecting your skin from the harmful rays of the sun in summer months. They come in very cool designs so not only do they look good they stop your skin getting sun burn. The other great thing about these tops is they can also be worn in the water without losing shape and they also dry pretty quickly.
