Rashies, or rash vests, are swimwear that protects your skin from UV sunburn and board abrasions during watersports activities. Long sleeve and short sleeve rashies are the warm weather alternative to wetsuits and springsuits, and with watersports brands such as Quiksilver, Billabong and Rip Curl all on show, Anaconda is the place to shop for rash vests and other swimwear.
WHAT IS A RASHIE?
A rashie, or rashy, is rash guard swimwear designed to eliminate rash associated with board riding. Invented in the 1970s, rashies 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, and our women's rashies and onesies are big favourites.
Rashies are designed for men, women and kids, and made from chlorine resistant UPF 50 material. Body Glove rash vests and rash suits are among Anaconda favourites, with form-fitting swimsuit and rash vest products that hug tight, avoid chafing, provide sun protection and don't inhibit movement. Anaconda partners with major brands such as Quiksilver, Billabong and Rip Curl to deliver highest quality products for Australian and New Zealand conditions, all for the lowest available price.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF WEARING A RASHIE?
Rashies are specially designed for watersports activities. Rashies 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 minimize 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 that will also include wetsuits, spring suits, boardshorts, bikinis, backpacks, hoodies, singlets, t-shirts, thongs and other top quality Anaconda gear.
Rashie fabric stretches for comfortable movement, even during vigorous watersports. The engineered shape fits like a glove. Rashie and rash vest fabric is also lightweight and designed for endurance.
