Welcome to ThinkVail – we hope you find this article about the best rash guards for women helpful. Rash guards are best known for protection from salt, sand and coral in the ocean, but here, in Vail, Colorado, they offer maximum protection from the strong rays of the sun at high altitude as well as abrasions from rocks and branches when rafting, kayaking, tubing, fishing or paddle boarding local rivers.
Lightweight, rash guards (also known as swim shirts or swim tees) allow you to comfortably enjoy the local lakes and rivers, all day, without being sunburned and offer insulating benefits when the mountain air is chilly or a barrier from insects that thrive on the water.
Rash guards also offer welcome protection, whether you are rafting down a rock strewn river or hiking to your favorite natural hot spring, and are a “must-have” item for any water adventure in Colorado!
