While touring on zodiacs and sailing recently, I noticed other people were wearing long sleeved protection against the sun. After having repeated burn spots on the back of my arms from overexposure, I started looking at different options that weren’t heavy or restrictive.
The Carve Designs rash guard long sleeved zip front shirt can be used for paddle-boarding, sailing, snorkeling kayaking and swimming,. The coverage of this sun shirt is ideal even in blaring sun, the weight of the shirt so light, it doesn’t feel too much.
Used to fend off abrasion when in the sun, a stand up collar and long sleeves provides maximum coverage for the arms and back of the neck. The double zipper makes it really flattering and the lightweight material and stretch make it very comfortable. It rolls up small for packing. it also served as an effective second layer recently when the weather turned chilly.
Made of nylon and spandex in a stretch tricot knit, this sun shirt is comfy, dries very quickly and teamed with board shorts, regular shorts or bathing suit ranks high in style.
