Bare Sunguard Long-Sleeved Shirt

Bare Sunguard Looking for a paddling garment to help block the sun but it is way to hot to wear your dry top? Then the Bare Sunguard shirt should be the perfect fit.

The long-sleeved, lightweight, four-way stretch top offers SPF 50+ protection against sun, salt, wind, and rash, making it a great garment for summer paddling or trips to the tropics.

While cotton is great protection for beach lounging, it's quick to wet and slow to dry when you're actively paddling. However, Sunguard 8oz. spandex fabric moves with you and dries quickly. It also provides wind and abrasion protection.

The only draw back to this garment is that when the material gets wet, it doesn’t provide a lot of heat insulation. Though great on hot days, if the wind is blowing, it can get a little cool especially when teaching and you are not really moving around a lot.
