Rip Curl Rash Vests

Rip Curl Say "Rip Curl" and you immediately relate to the surfing scene, which is why you can be confident that all Rip Curl clothing has been designed to enable you to get the best out of your time in the water. Decades of expertise (and let's face it, surfing fun) has gone into to designing Rip Curl rash vests that will allow you to perform on the water and hang out on the beach with UV protection at an economical price. With a range of sizes for women, men and kids, it doesn't matter whether you’re looking for short sleeves or long, a looser fit or a second skin kind of vibe, Rip Curl has you covered (literally). In this range of colourful and functional rash vests, there’s a style for everyone that’s guaranteed to make you stand out in the line-up.

What is a rash vest? Or rash top, rash guard, or rashie? Don’t worry, they’re all the same thing! This popular option for a watersports top has two key purposes. The first, as the name would suggest, is to prevent surfers from getting a rash when they’re leaning on the rough surf wax on their boards. The second is to provide extra protection from the sun. You’ll see many of the rash vests on this page are marked as having UPF50+ rating, which we at Wetsuit Outlet would highly recommend – even on overcast days, it’s so easy to get burnt on the water. When choosing a Rip Curl rash vest, there’s a couple of other features to choose between as well. Rip Curl have designed a variety of different fits, from the looser T-shirt style rashies, to more fitted shapes – it all depends on your personal preference. If you just want to keep your shoulders covered then opt for a short sleeve style, however, a long sleeved rash vest will provide you with more protection, giving you one less thing to worry about when you’re trying to catch waves. You can also find specialist impact and buoyancy vests to keep you safe when wake boarding and lightweight 0.5mm and 1mm neoprene vests which are practical when swimming or for watersports in warmer waters where you would benefit from lightweight protection.
