Lost my old rash vest so opted for this one based on reviews and styling. Initial impressions are good, Large is a perfect fit for me (40 inch chest, 36 inch waist and long torso). Appears to be well made and of nice soft material. Great styling in white with the hydro skin motif on the back. Can't wait to try it out on my up coming trip to Thailand! Fast delivery too.

I wear this top under my 5mm wetsuit in the summer and I also wear it under my drysuit in the spring. It stretches easily and dries very quickly too. In the summer, it’s great to wear surface swimming or surfing.

Fits well, not sure if I should have bought a long sleeve one. Speedy delivery as usual
