Hydroskin - Ultra Smooth Rash Guards

Constructed from high grade lycra based fabric, the Hydroskin Rash Guards and suit are designed to wear under a wetsuit or semi-dry suit or as a UV shield for other watersport activities. The ultra smooth fabric reduces friction between the skin and a wetsuit, and helps to stop chafing of tight/ill-fitting suits.

There’s nothing like a severe case of sunburn to spoiling an otherwise idyllic holiday. Not only is it painful,but the rubbing of a BCD strap or wetsuit can be agony, and can also have serious long term health implications. With Ultra-Violet Protection rating of 50+ when dry and 30 when wet, the hydroskin is the perfect protection from the sun when snorkelling, swimming or diving. It is fast drying and available in a range of colours. The ultra smooth fabric also makes it ideal underneath wetsuits to help minimise rubbing – especially from rental suits which may not fit so well.

The hydroskin suit provides all over protection from UV and most "stingers". Made with heavy grade high quality lycra, it has SPF of 50+ when dry, and over 30 when wet. It is the perfect dive skin for tropical waters, or for wearing under wetsuit to ease donning and doffing.
