It’s exactly as described, a fitted (true to size but not skin tight like a rash guard or wet suit) and comfortable swim/surf shirt. Note: this is not a rash guard, it’s a t-shirt with a UPF, quick-drying type of fabric. It’s precisely what I wanted for long days at the beach when I don’t want to roast in the sun but it would not take the place of a proper rash guard for surfing or diving.
Overall, it seems well made with lots of overlapping stitching at all seams and stress points. Only real criticism, it absolutely STINKS coming out of the package. Wash before wear, for sure.
Only time will tell how it holds up to the ocean, pool, sun and washing machine, but for the price, if I can get a season out of it, I’m ecstatic.
