Loose fitting so easy to take off even when wet. Doesn't appear to have the poor elasticity of other brands.
Not tight fitting so easy to take off even when wet
Good sun cover up at a decent price
Have the long sleeve version of this also Durable,inexpensive and factor 50 protection.Excellent top.
Make sure you try it on in-store as sizes may be larger than you think, which will impact when you're in the water (i.e. you probably want to go a size smaller). Keeps you warm, keeps you from sunburning. What more could you want in something £3-4?!?
we use these for daily swim sessions and are ideal for printing company logos on, last well
Was unsure between buying this or a proper snorkelling top but bought this as cheaper and fitted a little more easily as snorkelling tops are very tight fitting! It really helped me avoid sunburn on my upper torso/arms and was really good to snorkel in. Was quite a tight fit when wet so would recommend trying in store first. If you easily burn then consider something else like a snorkelling wetsuit with long arm sleeves (and possible leggings) as arms are still out for the sun to get.
Good , good price
Worth every penny, prevented me from getting sun burnt on holiday this year when out swimming with my family
Perfect for my son who is 12 and has fair skin.
Great for water sports and swimming if you are like me and have to be careful in the Sun Just watch out for the Sun cream as it can stain the t-shirt
Brilliant quality, brought them for my boys and they loved wearing the t-shirt. Made them feel more confident, size was perfect and was delivered within days of ordering, definitely recommend
very good quality items much better than expected for the price

All of our UV-resistant T-shirts are UPF 50+, i.e. they have the maximum level of sun protection. The choice between them will therefore be made based on the length of the sleeves and will depend on what it will be used for.The constraints are greatest for surfing so we decided to build our range primarily for surfing.For surfing, the choice will be made according to the duration of your sessions: 1 hour, 2 hours or 3 hours.
1 hour: Occasional practice. You can choose between a loose fit (priority to ease of dressing and comfort when dry) or a fitted cut (priority to comfort when wet). A loop system to connect it to the shorts ensures the stability of the product.2 hours: Regular practice. Comfort when wet is enhanced by the seamless panels under the arms and the drawstring which further increases stability.3 hours: Intensive practice. Additional warmth to help you stay in the water for longer.
The fabric of this OLAIAN anti-UV product blocks at least 98% of UVB radiation and 95% of UVA (UPF 50+). This guarantees effective protection from the sun. It can be used both in and out of the water, for water or nautical sports. The density of the textile fibres filters out UV rays, for long-lasting protection, even after washing. Chlorine-resistant.
UPF is a sun protection factor (Ultra Violet Protection Factor) and is standardised worldwide. It defines the protection level of a fabric and more precisely the proportion of UV rays it lets through. To meet the standards, it must block at least 95% of UV rays. UPF 50+ means that the fabric blocks at least 95% of UVA and 98% of UVB rays.
This UV protection T-shirt reduces friction with the surfboard or bodyboard. The loose fit of the T-shirt makes it easier to put on and is more comfortable when dry. Choose the fitted cut of the 100 or 500 top if you prefer comfort when wet or wear it under a wetsuit. Limitation of irritation has been proven for sessions of 1 hour. If you plan to surf for more than one hour, the 500 UV top will be a more suitable choice thanks to the seamless panels under the arms.
This UV protection water T-shirt has a loop at the front to attach the cord of your swim shorts to stop the top from riding up while you surf. This solution is recommended for sessions up to one hour. For more than one hour, we recommend that you choose the UV top 500, which also has a drawstring at the hips for better stability. Unwanted riding up of the top could cause irritation to the lower abdomen.
The minimum water temperature recommended for the use of this UV-protection T-shirt is 22°C. Air temperature may increase or decrease this recommendation. Our thermal models (over 2 hours) are made of either fleece, neoprene or both. The presence of wind can have an impact which can be uncomfortable as soon as the wind exceeds 15 km/h: In this case, choose a model with neoprene.
Our UV tops are designed to meet the needs of the most demanding surfers. Our design choices also make them compatible with other water sports such as swimming, kite surfing, windsurfing, wakeboarding, water skiing, sea wading or SUP (stand up paddle boarding).
Although this T-shirt provides protection from the sun, phenomena such as reflections (from the water, sand, etc.), heat, time of day, etc., must be taken into account. Wearing this T-shirt does not exempt the wearer from adopting suitable behaviour: wear sunglasses, wear a hat or cap, regularly apply an appropriate sun cream, drink regularly, etc.
The environmental impact of the product is calculated over its entire life cycle with different indicators. An overall score (ABCDE) is attributed to help you easily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing products of the same type with one another (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.).Decathlon has voluntarily opted to apply this environmental labelling scheme.For more information, visit: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
