A rash guard is a tight-fitting garment made of synthetic fabric, usually polyester, polypropylene or nylon, with a generous amount of spandex stretch. Rash guards are primarily designed for water sports. If you surf or paddle board, wearing a rash guard is an excellent way to give your skin added protection from the sun, especially if you wear a rash guard with a UPF rating. Plus, the stretchy, body-hugging fabric won’t weigh you down or sag when it becomes wet. For waterskiers, wakeboarders and kayakers, wearing a rash guard underneath your PFD is an excellent way to prevent chaffing and irritation.
