UPF 50+ Rash Vest

WHAT IS IT?
A multi-purpose rash vest top that works both in and out of the water

WHY’S IT FOR YOU?
Stylish and lightweight, this isn’t your standard, thick, skin-tight surf vest. It’s been designed to be worn on long days in and out of the water. Whether that’s a day SUPing, kayaking or playing with the kids on the beach. Close-fitting yet flattering design so can equally be worn out and about, without having to change, thanks to the comfortable, quick-drying and breathable fabric. Convenient cycle-jersey style pockets when out of the water for phone, wallet and keys

OTHER IMPORTANT STUFF
Quarter zip collar for added back-of-neck sun protection
Front loop for attaching to board shorts
Elastic waist cord with side-adjuster/toggle
Embroidered logo on the chest and printed graphic on the back
Unlike some other UPF products, our fabrics aren’t chemically impregnated so you can be sure the protection lasts over and over, without washing out
Our bespoke and high-tech fabrics have been carefully selected, woven and UPF tested in every colour and model, meeting strict EU standards, and hitting the highest possible UPF 50+ rating
86% polyester 14% elastane

SIZING?
Take your regular size or size up for a looser fit. Designed to be quite close-fitting to avoid the top getting heavy and loose while swimming. Size guide available on the website product page.

YOU ALSO GET… 7-day unlimited access to the mole-checking app, SkinVision, on every order. Use the app to map, monitor and get instant feedback without leaving the house. Skin checking is just as important as daily skin protection. Upgrade to a 12m license for just £25 (a 50% saving for our customers). All details on our website.

Recognised for our commitment to skin cancer prevention, our work with charity partner, Melanoma UK, and our educational campaign, more and more people are noticing what we’re up to. This is long-term project but it’s always good to know we’re making waves.

Reviews for UPF 50+ Rash Vest

  1. Tim

    The sizing and fit was perfect . Such a comfortable fabric to wear whilst paddle boarding and cycling. Pockets are a useful addition and a good size for phones, energy bars etc.

  2. Paul Hunt

    Excellent level of protection and looks good from the front. Only reason for not giving 5 is that the logo on the back is not very subtle.

  3. Gee

    Bought for me and son, sizing a little long in arm but worked well and great length, loved the pocket

  4. Amjad

    Great product, Very confortable and service was 10/10, Will definitely use again.

  5. Dan

    Great fit! Close fitting across the chest, shoulders and arms, but hangs nicely around the torso. Also the neck is fairly loose even when zipped so doesn’t feel constricting.

  6. Matt

    This is a great product – really like a rash vest designed with SUP and kayaking in mind – the design and the pockets are a big plus for me! I really like the pink and blue colour scheme. My only negative is a small one – the quality of the draw string in the hem doesn’t look robust or that it will last long – time will tell! (also this feedback form isn’t working very well in Chrome – comments section is a single long line!) More information on products environmental/sustainability credentials would be good as well – hard to determine whether the suncreen is ‘reef save’ or how it compares to someone like Suntribe at this time. thanks

  7. Sam N

    Keeps me safe and looks good. One of the wrist hems did pull apart a little getting it on and tricky to remove when wet.

  8. Bruce Woollard

    Good fit. Stylish

  9. Vaughan

    Wore this on a 2week sailing and water sports holiday in Greek islands. Used it mainly for windsurfing and found it brilliant. Great colour and design just would like a XS version as found size S slightly big.

  10. Peter McLintock

    Not yet tested in water yet but feels good quality and like the colour combo

  11. Elliott

    Wore this virtually all week on the beach during a recent sunny holiday to Cornwall, very comfortable and stylish. The collar is a great additional to the standard rash vests.

  12. Darren Farrar @StandUpPaddleUK

    Top kit for paddlers, hikers and cyclists. I use the Rash vest for all of the above, the perfect top for gravel riding on the bike

  13. Dominic Cunliffe

    Incredibly comfortable to wear; I thought it might be too warm in the direct sun but it feels silky smooth and light when being worn. A fantastic product, I will definitely be buying more.

  14. Charles Tapson

    I was in need of a rash vest for kayaking and appreciated the UPF factor as well as that it wouldn’t wash off. So I bought my first rashie, wore it and was delighted. It is superbly made, comfortable, and doesn’t restrict movement. I liked it so much I bought a second.

  15. Gaz

    Looks great. Not had chance to use on beach yet but looking fwd too!

  16. Simon Ramskill

    Great fit – works well

  17. adam

    Absolute must, going on a family holiday in the sun soon and this will have so much benefits, Iv worn it a couple of times, the fit is spot on ordered usual size large , looks great too I’m 33 and never thought I would wear something like this I love it knowing that I’m going to be protected through out the day around the pool etc with the kids

  18. Vaughan

    Great colour and design love it would have given it 5 but even though it’s small I do find it a on the generous side. An extra small would get top marks

  19. Mike Richards

    Although I haven’t worn it yet I would expect this will be a great to wear if out walking along the beach when the sun is shining

  20. Wayne Jaffe

    Fits well and like the pockets

  21. Mark A

    Couldn’t be happier with my new rash vest. I was a little apprehensive about my new poolside look but rest assured the fit is great and the overall look is super stylish

  22. Mike Richards

    Great service and I love the personal touch. The quality of the clothing is first class, and due to this being my first order, I will definitely be ordering more.

  23. Neil

    Does exactly what it says on the tin

  24. Jacqueline Burke

    I came across this company in an advertisement and loved the story behind the boys and decided to order products for my sons for Christmas. The website was easy to navigate and the order came in 2 days beautifully packaged and a personal note included. I will let you know how the gifts were received from my climbing, swimming, running, cycling and all round adrenaline junkie sons.

  25. Pauline

    Great personal service, very informative raising awareness of skin cancer. and to support a British company. Fantastic quality clothing at a reasonable price.

  26. Dean

    Great service,and great product looks good and feels good.

  27. David

  28. Jan

    Great message, positive experience and really good products

Skin science

A burning issue for men

Almost twice as many men die from skin cancer compared to women. Male skin cancer cases have exploded over the past 20 years and they’re forecast to double over the next 20 years.

It's chemistry

UVA rays penetrate your skin damaging the proteins that give your skin structure, causing ageing and wrinkling. UVB damages the outer skin causing sunburn. Together they're a cause of cancer.

Putting your jacket on

Real skincare should protect you from both harmful UVA and UVB rays. Rays touch your skin all year long, even in the winter. Apply skin protection all year round and stay healthy.

We make high performance products people enjoy using. So far, the feedback has been positive…

“I've been wanting something like this for years. It's great for a beach holiday with the kids because I can wear it all day, even at lunch. It's also much more flattering than the usual surf vests (I don't exactly look like Cristiano Ronaldo). Great job LifeJacket!”

Chris, Dorset

“Been using it for stand-up paddle boarding and absolutely love it. Saves me putting sunscreen on all day but still protects which is a massive win.”
