Shirt arrived soiled, stained, and filthy. It leaves the impression that they re-sell previously used/worn clothing. This is my first negative review I have given anything on Amazon- and I hope it is my last. Unbelievable!
I bought two of these rash guards to take on a trip to Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. I bought one in XL and the other in XXL. The XL fit perfectly, but not like a baggy XL t-shirt would. It fits me more like a Large t-shirt would. But that's they way it's supposed to be. I'm a little out of shape these days so I wanted to get the next size up so I'd have two for two different activities. The XL I used for snorkeling and scuba diving because I didn't want the shirt to be to loose while doing those activities. The XXL, which fit more like an XL t-shirt, I used for hanging around the pool and going to the beach in.
I used both shirts every day that I was in Mexico and they were awesome. They fit well, dried fast, and kept me from getting burned. My skin was just as white returning home as when I left for Mexico, so they did their job. =) Of course, that wasn't the only reason I bought them. I'm not in the shape I used to be, so I spared the people at the resort from seeing my big...
My husband usually wears a traditional rash guard for the ocean, but wanted a rash tee for the pool. We are happy with the O'Neil quality and specially looked for ths brand. This rash tee fits more like a shirt than a rash guard, as it is supposed to. My husband does not like the way the rash tee floats up when you are in the water. The one in the photo seems to have a toggle, but the one we received does not. It is also taking him a while to get used to the way the shirt clings once you get out of the pool compared to traditional rash guard. Best advice is don't buy it too big. I know in theory a lot of people buy this for a looser fit to hide body flaws, but too big is bad - it clings when wet and it's worse when it is too large. If you haven't worn a rash tee before I suggest going to the local surf shop and trying the sizes out before you buy one online.
