What are Rashies?

A rashie, or rashy, is rash guard swimwear designed to eliminate rash associated with swimming and board riding. Invented in the 1970s, rash shirts have grown in popularity due to UPF 50 capability for ultimate sunburn protection. Australian watersports enthusiasts all appreciate the benefits of rash vests, surf suits, one-piece swimwear and swimsuits designed for specific sports. Not to mention, our women's rashies and onesies are big favourites.

Rashies are designed for men, women and kids, and are made from chlorine resistant UPF 50 material. Body Glove rash vests and rash suits are among Anaconda favourites. Our form-fitting swimsuit and rash vest products hug tight, avoid chafing, provide sun protection and don't inhibit movement. Anaconda partners with major brands such as Quiksilver, Billabong and Rip Curl. We deliver the highest quality products for Australian and New Zealand conditions, all for the lowest available price.

What are the Benefits of Wearing a Rash Shirt?

Rashies are specially designed for watersports activities. Rash guards and other rash vests are also quick drying and can be carried in backpacks. Quality rash vests are chlorine resistant and offer sun protection up to UPF 50. Long-sleeved rashies and short sleeve rash vests are designed to minimise chafing of skin against surf craft.

Australian watersports enthusiasts were among the first to incorporate rash vests and rash guard swimsuits into swimwear options. Rashies are a natural addition to any Australian or New Zealand watersports wardrobe. Check out top quality wetsuits, spring suits, boardshorts, bikinis, backpacks, hoodies, singlets, t-shirts, thongs and other gear from Anaconda!

Rashie fabric stretches for comfortable movement, even during vigorous watersports. The engineered shape fits like a glove, whilst the fabric is lightweight and designed for endurance. Rash shirts are worn by pro surfers, scuba divers and kayak anglers, among others. Rashies are also water repellent while on the boat, and chlorine resistant while in the wash.
