Rapid Dry short sleeve top has a standard neck design and is cut in a stylish loose T-shirt design. Perfect as your ‘go to’ technical T-shirt on the water as well as for everyday casual use around the water.
Rapid Dry does not ‘cling’ to your body and impede movement like other watersports garments do. Rapid Dry looks great when worn wet or dry.
Unisex, 4-way stretch design for a wide range of fits from XXS to 5XL.
About Rapid Dry
Sharkskin Rapid Dry is a lightweight, breathable, fast drying fabric which is warmer and more insulative than cotton and nylon / lycra / spandex synthetic fabrics both when wet and when dry.
The stylish loose fit T-shirt design is super comfortable when worn by itself for all watersports but can also be worn layered over other Sharkskin tops for extra insulation and sun protection when needed.
Rapid Dry is ideal for paddle watersports, board watersports, sailing and many other watersports including white water rafting, multisport and adventure sports.
Rapid Dry Features
Rapid Dry is ‘infused’ and then ‘heat set’ with a durable water repellent (DWR) treatment. This method is more effective at shedding water and lasts much longer than traditional treatments.
3-D ‘rib-knit’ fabric construction for superior insulation properties.
Durable fabric resists deterioration in UV, saltwater and chlorine so the garment will last longer.
4-way stretch ensures garments are non-restrictive allowing a full range of movement.
Breathable fabric to allow body temperature regulation.
Non-chaffing seams for comfort during active watersports.
Odour resistant properties so the garment can be worn for long periods of time.
Hi-vis and non-fading colours available for safety on the water.
SPF50+ for sun protection to avoid skin damage and melanoma.

This vest is great for kayaking. Plenty of room in the arms as you paddle. Very comfortable!
Meets and beats all criteria
My 1st Shark Skin purchase but definitely not the last. Will be looking to upgrade my aqua sports wardrobe with Shark Skin products in the weeks ahead
wet shirt that fits a little looser than a rash shirt. Great for fishing and kayaking. Much thicker and better quality fabric than your average rashie.
comfortable, fits the body beautiful, am the glamour pus of the river when out paddling.
It fits and I’m ready to wear it when I next go swimming
Fits well but unable to wear them due to our lockdown cheers Tony
Love this new “Rashie” it’s going to get a lot of use when I take the dog for a swim or I hit the beach
Wear it under my long johns free diving very comfortable.
Great quality and perfect fit,
Comfortable, well made, dries easily. Good fit
It’s been great for keeping the cold wind out. Have been using the top as an exercise top so has been very useful. Will try it out as a rashee but so far it’s been a good product…
Happy with the purchase….
It does all it the company claims it does, the fit is right on size and very comfortable
We need a garment that gives us some insulation and dries quickly when wet. The Sharkskin Rapid Dry product is perfect -not as cold as lycraor spandex garments and dries super fast keeping us warm when training or competing.
My philosophy for adventure is simple, "No boundaries, No limits". From high altitudes to extreme depths, whenever I prepare for action I find my Rapid Dry is one of the first things I pack! drier.
