    Product feature
    1. How to choose your UV protection T-shirt (Part 1)
      All of our UV-resistant T-shirts are UPF50+, 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.
    2. How to choose your UV protection T-shirt (Part 2: According to the duration of the session)
      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.
    3. UV protection even when wet
      The fabric of this TRIBORD UV-resistant product blocks at least 98% of UVB radiation and 95% of UVA (UPF 50+). In compliance with the EN-13758-2 standard, it guarantees effective protection against the sun. It can be used both in and out of the water, for water or nautical sports. The integration of ceramic particles directly into the fibres of the product provides durable protection over time, even after washing.
    4. What does UPF 50+ mean?
      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 UVB and 98% of UVA rays.
    5. Reduced chafing
      This UV-resistant T-shirt helps limit rubbing and chafing due to contact with the surfboard or bodyboard. It can also be used under a wetsuit to limit rubbing, particularly around the neck and armpits. We have added seamless panels under the arms to limit irritation due to paddling movements. Our test protocols confirmed that irritation was indeed limited during two-hour sessions.
    6. Warmth and wind
      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.
    7. Support system
      The Tribord UV-resistant top has a drawstring at the hips. This lets you tighten the top so that it stays firmly in place. It has also been designed so that the drawstring of your boardshorts can be attached to it to stop the top from riding up while you surf.
    8. Multi water sports UV protection T-shirt
      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, kitesurfing, windsurfing, wakeboarding, water skiing, sea wading or SUP (stand up paddle boarding).
    9. Behaviour when in the sun
      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.

    • Ideal - snug, slippery and washes well

      09/02/2017
      Adrian (United Kingdom)
      Used for More than 1 year
      I am slightly amazed at the poor reviews here, this top has served me well (and my kids have loads of the short sleeve ones) - both under my full wetsuit and as a sun top. It washes well and is at least half the price of something similar in a "proper" surf shop

      It is a snug fit - but it is supposed to be! You want it to be close to your skin so you can get a wetsuit over it. Which is why it has the longer arms - to my mind an inspired bit of design that stops the sleeves disappearing up inside my wetsuit and actually helps get my suit back on, especially when it is (or I am) wet

      Sizing may well depend a bit on your shape. I am an M or L in most clothes and definitely an L in this. If you want something a little looser (as a sun suit only - it will ruckle under a wetsuit) then go up at least one size

      I just hope they bring back the thermal version

      Rod (United Kingdom)
      Used for 1 week or less
      Ordered Large and got EU Large (equals UK Medium) instead of UK Large. Sizing not obvious on the on-line order form. Also spoke to the Sales Team and was not appraised of this quirk.
      As for the sleeve length, totally ridiculous. Totally disappointing service, do not have the confidence to use Decathlon again.

      Response of the brand
      Dear Rod,

      Thank you for your feedback. We are really sorry to hear that our surf UV top didn't much your expectations. I can see that this is another negative feedback about the sizing issue. The brand if aware of all negative comments and they will be working on improvements for the coming  seasons.
      From other side this is surprising, because this technical rash vest is our good seller. Sleeves will become longer once the fabric gets wet.
      Please do not hesitate to return this top for full refund or exchange to your nearest store or via online process.
      Once again apologies for any inconvenience caused.  
      Kind regards,
      Kornel Pintara Commercial Director Watersports DECATHLON
