Boys' Short Sleeve Colorblock Rash Guard
After having my son try this on to ensure fit I threw it into the washer with the other items I bought. I noticed immediately when I took it out that the colors bled into the white parts and that was in a cold wash on the gentle cycle. So, in an attempt to save it, I sprayed it with a stain spray and folded on my clothes basket until I had another load of laundry to wash. What a huge mistake, as the colors bled even more. I am attaching a photo because I was so shocked to see how bad it was. I think now it is ruined. I bought three more of these, but the only one with problems is the blue, red and white one.

Waiting to see how it holds up
This is the third rash guard I've ordered from Lands End for this grandson. The one he wore two summer's ago held up well and will be handed down to a cousin. However, last year's rash guard lost its shape and is being discarded. This one fits as expected and looks nice. I hope it will look as well at summer's end.

durable, perfect fit
7 days on the ocean, and several days in and out of the swimming pool... not a sign of wear or fading. Washes well. Perfect for my rough and tumble 4-year old boy.

Kids love it
I picked up three of these so far, 2 in the color block and 1 solid, and the kids literally won't stop wearing them. My oldest (10) wore his 3x in a row and the youngest tried to go to sleep in his. They like the light almost slick material and it looks very sporty. I am buying another one since the kids wanted to match.

Colors bleed horribly!
I have purchased boys' rash guards from Lands End for the last 4 years. I was very excited about the color block options this year, but VERY disappointed that the colors on these shirts bleed horribly! My boys went swimming the other day and upon changing into dry clothes, I tossed these rash guards into our swim bag and about an hour later when I got home, noticed that the colors had bled onto the white body of the rash guard. Obviously, the colors on these shirts are not colorfast for chlorinated water. The shirt is still high quality, but the bleeding is problematic. Of course, Lands End customer service is AMAZING, and they are letting me exchange them for the solid color rash guards and honoring the sale price of my original purchase. That's why I love Lands End and will continue to shop here!!!
