Year round clothing
A bombproof piece of kit that I use all the time for dinghy sailing and sea kayaking. I use it in the winter as layering with a wetsuit and in the summer as a top just to keep a bit more warmth.
This shirt is perfect to protect you from the sun and it keeps you cool.
Great rash guard, all day, no problem.
Used this for a week in Hawaii. Almost never took it off.
I just started kayaking, so I decided to purchase a nice top. The NRS hydro silk rash guard is extremely comfortable and well made. It worked as advertised. Kayaking all day and no underarm rash, nor did I received too much sun. I would highly recommend this product. The product does run small.
the Hydrosilk is snug and feels great against the skin. No rough seams to chafe my underarms and the fabric dries fast. Great protection from the blazing Australian sun. Quality gear.
I use this top most of the time I"m on the water. Except in the cooler months, when it becomes part of a layering system to keep my core warm. This top also provides decent sun protection and freedom of movement.

Not that abrasion resistant. It's mostly to use under a dry-suit, but can be stand along when needed.
Ideal dry-suit layer
I bought the NRS long-sleeve rash guard shirt to wear as a base layer under a dry-suit. The shirt is quite comfortable and actually provided an adequate amount of insulation when I immersed myself in 40 degree water. I've worn it a couple of times now by itself on cool days and really like it. I would definitely recommend this shirt.
