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
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.

Reviews for UPF 50+ Rash Vest
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.
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.

“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!”
“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.”

Excellent product good sun protection when swimming and dries very quickly. The top has been worn many times in the sea and still holds it shape and quality of material. Would like a slightly higher collar if possible.
Alex Watson (verified owner) –
Comfortable, lightweight, and covers the body very well, including the neck.
Tim (verified owner) –
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.
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.
Gee (verified owner) –
Bought for me and son, sizing a little long in arm but worked well and great length, loved the pocket
Amjad (verified owner) –
Great product, Very confortable and service was 10/10, Will definitely use again.
Dan (verified owner) –
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.
Matt (verified owner) –
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

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.
Bruce Woollard (verified owner) –
Good fit. Stylish
Vaughan (verified owner) –
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.
Peter McLintock (verified owner) –
Not yet tested in water yet but feels good quality and like the colour combo
Elliott (verified owner) –
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.
Darren Farrar @StandUpPaddleUK (verified owner) –
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
Dominic Cunliffe (verified owner) –
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.
Charles Tapson (verified owner) –
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.
Gaz (verified owner) –
Looks great. Not had chance to use on beach yet but looking fwd too!
Simon Ramskill –
Great fit – works well
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
Vaughan (verified owner) –
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
Mike Richards (verified owner) –
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
Wayne Jaffe (verified owner) –
Fits well and like the pockets
Mark A (verified owner) –
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
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.

Does exactly what it says on the tin

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