My wife & I have been using rash guards for years now mostly for their sun-block properties. We recently ordered 2 from this company & I have to say they are awesome!

First of all, they are made in the U.S.A. Second, they are by far the best made rash guards I have ever seen.

Neoprene can cause a rash under the armpits.

I've been wearing long sleeve lycra rashguards for years instead of sun screen. They work great and cover hard to reach areas. In addition, they are not hot even in 85+ heat. No rash either. Are the ones on the ebay site lycra?

I have one and need to wear it more than I do. I initially bought it for warmth, but quickly realized it wasn't much good for that. They're great for UV protection.

Here is a link to a site that lists a variety of rash guard and sun protective clothing companies:http://www.modestclothes.com/sun/sun_garment_list.html#swim%20adult

I can't say for a fact it's lycra - but they are snug-fitting. We wear them totally for sun protection. Even if I could put sun-block on my back myself, it would be rubbed off after the first set was finished, then I'd have to re-apply.

Also, I have found that they are actually cooler than not wearing anything when it's really hot. Since they do hold some moisture, and are so thin, that air blows through easily, they cool me down.

Yes, they do. Not sure what the SPF is though (it does vary brand to brand)

** Edit ** I just checked, the Crypt rash guards advertise at least spf 50

My buddy has a fleece lined rash guard that is used during the colder season between wetsuit and no suit skiing. works awesome to take the chill off the water. can't seem to find many that are fleece lined though. I also need to purchase one for my wife as she burns faster than any human being on the face of the earth.
