The Aqua Sphere Youth Short Sleeve Rashguard keeps your child protected in the water without restricting his or her range of motion. Unlike a shorty, which covers the upper and lower body, the Short Sleeve Rashguard fits like a T-shirt and comfortably keeps the top half protected from water, wind, and sun.
Won't Weigh Them Down
The Youth Short Sleeve Rashguard is made with advanced Thermo-Guard technology. Its composition allows your child to keep his or her full range of motion and flexibility while wearing the rashguard. The protective shirt is made from ultra-thin neoprene material which conforms to fit the body and insulate it from chilly water. The neoprene not only covers the skin and keeps it warm, but also decreases drag and maintains full freedom of movement through the water. This means that the Aqua Sphere Short Sleeve Rashguard will keep your child protected without holding them back from any and all water activities. For cold water swimming, consider a thicker option, like a wetsuit.
Ultimate Sun Protection for Kids
Above all, the Short Sleeve Sun Shirt keeps your child's vulnerable skin protected from UV rays. The Aqua Sphere Rashguard is available in a variety of youth sizes and comes in either a red/blue or blue/green option. If you plan on swimming in slightly chillier waters, then you might want to check out Aqua Sphere's Youth Long Sleeve Rashguard for a little more protection.
The AquaGear Opinion
Testers in the AquaGear pool were impressed that Aqua Sphere provided their children with both short and long sleeve options. Many of the supervising adults thought that it would be useful to have both on hand, depending on the swimming locale. The Youth Short Sleeve Rashguard form fits to a child's figure with ease and insulates and protect without slowing them down.
