Description

Double-sided, environmentally friendly warmth.

When you're play-boating in water that was snow only a few hundred vertical feet ago, then you're going to want the Long Sleeve Thick Skins Rash Guard from Immersion Research. This heavyweight, stretchy insulator is made from double-sided fleece and 29% Greenplus environmentally friendly polyester. Flat seam construction prevents chafing under your dry top, while a high collar with a bit of sun protection keeps your neck and shoulders from getting crispy.

Snug as a bug in a rug (raft???)

Let's be clear about one thing first: I am a fair weather boater. For the most part (ie; unless I'm getting paid) I hate being on the water in weather below 55 F. But maybe it's like they say with snowsports-- if you hate it because you're always cold, you just haven't had the right gear yet.

I didn't mind the cold so much once I added some Thick Skin layers to my quiver. Pretty much lived in this top all Spring and for much of the summer out in West Virginia during river season-- this piece has replaced my NRS Hydroskin long sleeve top, too, because it doesn't have the same evaporative cooling issues.

Once it gets wet, it insulates like a champ. It wouldn't be a particularly good item for a backpacking trip, since it's pretty heavy when wet, but that's not really what it's designed for.

The poly does get a bit funky after a few trips, but that's typical of most synthetic materials. Construction is great; mine saw probably 90 days of heavy use and doesn't have so much as a hole.

It's meant to fit close to the body, so I'd go with your normal size. The fabric has a lot of give to it as well.
