Rapid Dry Rashies

Don’t like wet, cold and clingy Rashies? You will love the Sharkskin Rapid Dry.

Sharkskin Rapid Dry is made with a lightweight, fast drying material that has a long-lasting water repellent treatment to keep you warmer. It is way more insulative than normal rashies while also being breathable, more durable, and also resistant to chlorine, sun and salt.

Rapid Dry is the perfect rash-top for all watersports in all conditions. It has a relaxed T-shirt fit that does not ‘cling’ to your body like most rashie and lycra tops, and looks good and feels great so it is just as good for wearing in-between watersports sessions or even just as a casual top at the café or bar.

Rapid Dry looks great with a multi-panel cut design, loads of great colour options, long and shortsleeve designs, and a flattering relaxed fit. It is so stylish and comfortable you will wear it in and around the water all day and to the bar for a drink at night. It’s the ultimate travel partner for your watersports getaways!

Sharkskin Rapid Dry tops are the best Rashies available for watersports and sun protection because of –

  • Durable Water Repellent Treatment - Rapid Dry is ‘infused’ and then ‘heat set’ with a DWR treatment which is much more effective at shedding water and lasts much longer than traditional treatments.
  • Construction – Rapid Dry uses a 3D ‘rib-knit’ fabric construction for superior insulation properties.
  • Durability – Rapid Dry fabric resists deterioration in UV, saltwater and chlorine so the garment will last much longer.
  • Stretch – 4 way stretch ensures Rapid Dry garments are non-restrictive allowing a full range of movement.
  • Breathable - to allow body temperature regulation in hot weather or when working hard.
  • Design and Fit – multi panel design that retains shape and form with non-chaffing seams for maximum comfort.
  • Odour resistant - so the garment does not accumulate odour from sweat in-between washes.
  • Safety - available in a range of colours including hi-vis colours so you can be seen when out on the ocean.
  • Sun Protection – lab tested UPF50+ for maximum sun protection to avoid skin damage and melanoma.
  • Coverage – Rapid Dry comes in longsleeve and longsleeve with a ‘stand-up’ collar for extra neck protection. Shortsleeve design is also available.
  • Layering: What about changing weather conditions? No worries! Layering Sharkskin takes care of that. Rapid Dry tops are perfect over the top of all other Sharkskin tops to form a versatile apparel system that allows you to be cooler or warmer by layering up or down depending on the weather conditions and your work rate.
