Women's AquaTerra Short Sleeve Zip-front Rash Guard
Love the neck coverage and lightweight feel!!
I purchased the white color to go with my swim suit. I needed some extra coverage because I have an autoimmune disorder that causes sun sensitivity. However, I love to go outside and cotton shirts were no longer making me feel good. I love the zipper on this rash guard. It gives you the freedom to modify your coverage, sexy feel or not! :) I cannot express how happy I am with the lightweight material. In the hot sun at the beach, I did not feel any warmer with my arms and neck covered by the rash guard. I am a picky person when it comes to covering my skin up and I would recommend this sporty, sexy, satisfying rash guard to anyone! I have even worn it outside of the pool/ beach environment!! I did buy a size smaller as previously recommended and was very fortunate for that comment!

Best rash guard shirt I've found
I swim almost every day in an outdoor pool and have tried many different styles and brands of rash guard shirts and this is my favorite! This is my second shirt that I have purchased in the same style. The zip front makes removing the shirt very easy...even when wet. I also like the length of the sleeve. It is long enough to protect my upper arms without interfering with movement when swimming laps. I would highly recommend it!

Good fit and it works, but don't buy white.
Fits nicely, is comfortable, and did the job of preventing sunburn. However, I ordered the white color, and it immediately became permanently stained in places where I had applied sunscreen, especially the neckline. Anyone who buys this product is going to apply sunscreen around the neckline. I recommend buying a colored top instead of white.

Saved sun sensitive skin from tropical sun!
I purchased the Aquaterra Rash Guard for a trip to Puerto Rico last April. I am super sun sensitive, having had an allergic reaction to the sun in AZ (hives) and 2 precancerous lesions removed from my face before age 30.
I spent a day each on Culebra and Icacos island beaches with very little shade, with a dark floppy hat. my rash guard shirt and 70 sunscreen. The shirt was comfortable and easy to swim in. With shorts on it was fine to go out from the beach for a casual dinner. Best yet, I got NO SUNBURN!!!!!! GREAT PRODUCT!!!!

I bought this in black and love it.
I snorkel a lot and love this rash guard. I bought it in black and would definitely buy another one if they ever offer it in black again. Wish they had something besides white.

Perfect fit and really liked the color.
It fit well and I like the fact that it has a 3/4 sleeve. It is hard to find a 3/4 sleeve sport/beach tops. Hope more colors are offered in the future.

This rash guard is great
The unique thing about this rash guard is the front zipper which makes it easy to take on and off. I just got back from a small island and I wore it every day while snorkelling and for times I needed extra coverage. It is a great Rash Guard and I hope they bring it back next year with more color selection! Also fits true to size I thought.

This works well in and out of the water. I really like the zipper instead of over-the-head - though I would have liked the neck to be more open. I had to exchange the one I orginally ordered because it was too snug for my comfort.. But all in all it's great!

Don't hesitate to order smaller size
Based on a friend's recommendation, I ordered the XS Tall, even though I am normally size 6-8 in other clothing brands and am average height. It fits great! Not tight in the arms at all, and the length is perfect for my taste. Closely fitted around the ribcage, but I like it that way so it will stay on in the water. Looks flattering as well. So if you're disappointed because your size is out of stock, click over to the "tall" section and give a smaller size a try!

Great Rash Guard for Many Reasons
I ordered this rash guard in a plus size for my senior mother. She has arthritis in her shoulders and can't lift them very high so the zipper was perfect for her since she could slide her arms into it, rather than lift them over her head. Applying the amount of sunscreen one should have when in a bathing suit, would have been difficult for her too but the rash guard shirt made her application much less and she didn't have to worry about her back, chest or upper arms. The fun colors made her feel up to date with her pool fashion and she loved the quick drying time too.
She probably wouldn't have gotten in the pool if she didn't have this shirt. Thanks for the great summer memories you gave to her and her grandchildren!
