Patagonia Rash Guard

PatarashDespite its name the Patagonia Rash Guard won’t clear up that ‘thing’ you picked up in Buenos Aires. What it will do is prevent you from becoming an accidental organ donor by leaving half your epidermis on the water, ground or wherever it is you’re abrading yourself.

Great for surfing, kayaking, backpacking, Brazilian jiu-jitsu or any sport where you want to minimize the chafe, the silky-smooth Patagonia Rash Guard slides on easily thanks to just the right blend of earth-friendly 84% recycled polyester and 16% spandex. The second-skin fit will help you get your superhero on as you charge off on your next epic.

The mock turtleneck design is available in short and long sleeves and even as a hoodie, so you can choose your degree of 30+UPF sun protection. Patagonia’s usual attention to high quality details in their clothing shows: the flat seams make the whole piece feel like a single piece of material, and the front hem has a loop that will secure it to your board shorts. Very cool. Especially when you’re very hot.
