I’ve been holding off on writing this review for awhile, because we haven’t had an opportunity to really test it’s strengths until just earlier this month while I was attending Disney Social Media Moms in Orlando and Mom 2.0 in Miami. What better time to test out the UV strengths right?
I used sunscreen on all of the areas that were not covered by the shirt and after staying outside in the hot sun for an hour, he was still happy as a clam and no burns to report. The really great thing about these rash guards is they are so easy to take on and off thanks to the full length zipper closure.
SwimZip has a cute range of various styles for both boys and girls and all are rated at UV 50+ to block 99% of UVA and UVB rays. They are also Chlorine resistant.
This was my first time using a rash guard and I am completely sold on the concept. The top kept my son cool and protected during his time in the pool and once we took the top off it dried very quickly, so we were able to use it again later on that afternoon without him getting dressed in a wet suit.
