The Rapid Dry short-sleeved top has a standard neck design and is cut in a stylish loose T-shirt. Perfect as your ‘go to’ technical T-shirt on the water as well as for everyday casual use around the water.
Rapid Dry does not ‘cling’ to your body and impede movement like other watersports garments do. Rapid Dry looks great when worn wet or dry.
Rapid Dry is a lightweight, fast-drying fabric which is infused and heat set with a water-repellent treatment. This achieves a finish that is vastly more effective at shedding water and lasts much longer than traditional spandex rash guards. Rapid Dry is also warmer than cotton and other synthetic materials when wet. With an SPF50+ rating for full sun protection, Rapid Dry is breathable and durable and is perfect for any water sports activity.
Rapid Dry Features
- Rapid Dry is ‘infused’ and then ‘heat set’ with a durable water repellent (DWR) treatment. This method is more effective at shedding water and lasts much longer than traditional treatments.
- 3-D ‘rib-knit’ fabric construction for superior insulation properties.
- Durable fabric resists deterioration in UV, saltwater and chlorine so the garment will last longer.
- 4-way stretch ensures garments are non-restrictive allowing a full range of movement.
- Breathable fabric to allow body temperature regulation.
- Non-chaffing seams for comfort during active watersports.
- Odour resistant properties so the garment can be worn for long periods of time.
- Hi-vis and non-fading colours available for safety on the water.
- UPF50+ for sun protection.
The top has a unisex, 4-way stretch design for a wide range of fits. It can be sized in several ways to suit your preference or type of use. If you choose your regular shirt size, Rapid Dry will be form-fitting to a slightly loose fit.
If you prefer a loose fit similar to a loose-fitting T-shirt then we recommend you choose a size up from your regular shirt size.
If you would prefer a body fitting or snug fit (like a fitted lycra rash shirt for example) then we would recommend that you select a size down from your regular shirt size.
