I bought this rash guard for my son this summer. We used it for the first time today for two hours in the pool. He has to wear a rash guard because he's very fair skinned. I am hypervigilant about sunscreen, skin protection, etc, because we are very fair people and burn even on cloudy days.
This rash guard did not provide ANY sun protection. My son now has a sunburn where the rash guard was!!!
Don't buy this product if you expect sun protection in the rash guard. It doesn't work.
We've used many other brands of rash guards in the past. This is the first brand we've had any problems with. I would not recommend this rash guard to anyone that is fair skinned.

I got this rash guard shirt for my daughter who likes to cover up at the public pool. It's a pretty color that would work well for either boys or girls. It looks well made, a little nicer than the department store rash guards.

My kids do not like having sunblock applied to them all the time so this is the way we get around using less sunblock. I bought this for my daughter. I bought her a size up because she does not like them fitted. She liked it and we are excited to get some warm weather here so she can wear it. I have purchased Body Glove rash guards in the past, so I am expecting it to not wear out quickly as other brands have for me.

I got this for my son to wear on the waterslide so he does not get scratched, on in the pool if it is a little chilly. He found it comfortable and easy to get on. No problem fitting it over his head, (he has a large head!)

I bought a size 8 for my tall soon to be 7-year-old; the sizing seems right. The sleeves are a nice length almost to the elbow (but not covering the elbow) on him. This is the first rash guard I've purchased that actually went over his head easily but the neck still fits well once it's on.
Best Uses: Swimming
Pros: Easy to get over child's, Longer sleeves, Not too snug
