FACTORY SECONDS are brand new and come with full SHARKSKIN factory warranty. At Sharkskin we have very high standards when it comes to our finished products and our QC Team occasionally rejects finished products due to small production errors or imperfections. As a result we accumulate factory seconds which are new products with minor imperfections or cosmetic issues such as stitching or logo imperfections.

Factory Seconds are identified with a small green stitch inside the garment that identifies them as having been sold as a Factory Second and our warranty excludes the cosmetic imperfections that makes them a factory second.

Rapid Dry short sleeve top has a standard neck design and is cut in a stylish loose T-shirt design. Perfect as your ‘go to’ technical T-shirt on the water as well as for everyday casual use around the water.

Rapid Dry does not ‘cling’ to your body and impede movement like other watersports garments do. Rapid Dry looks great when worn wet or dry.

Unisex, 4-way stretch design for a wide range of fits from XXS to 5XL.

About Rapid Dry

Sharkskin Rapid Dry is a lightweight, breathable, fast drying fabric which is warmer and more insulative than cotton and nylon / lycra / spandex synthetic fabrics both when wet and when dry.

The stylish loose fit T-shirt design is super comfortable when worn by itself for all watersports but can also be worn layered over other Sharkskin tops for extra insulation and sun protection when needed.

Rapid Dry is ideal for paddle watersports, board watersports, sailing and many other watersports including white water rafting, multisport and adventure sports.

Rapid Dry Features

  • Rapid Dry is ‘infused’ and then ‘heat set’ with a durable water repellent (DWR) treatment. This method is more effective at shedding water and lasts much longer than traditional treatments.
  • 3-D ‘rib-knit’ fabric construction for superior insulation properties.
  • Durable fabric resists deterioration in UV, saltwater and chlorine so the garment will last longer.
  • 4-way stretch ensures garments are non-restrictive allowing a full range of movement.
  • Breathable fabric to allow body temperature regulation.
  • Non-chaffing seams for comfort during active watersports.
  • Odour resistant properties so the garment can be worn for long periods of time.
  • Hi-vis and non-fading colours available for safety on the water.
  • UPF50+ for sun protection.

Sizing Guide

Rapid Dry is a unisex fit - please refer to the Mens & Rapid Dry size chart for Rapid Dry sizing.

    The best on the market

    The rashie is the best quality, it’s a second but I can’t see what is wrong with it.

    I’ve previously brought other garments from sharkskin so I know I’ve got a product that is quality and in the long run be cheaper than having to replace the competitors product every year. Great Australian company.

    comfortable all day rashie

    I was initially hesitant to purchase these rashies because of the price but very glad I did - comfortable fit, dries super fast and doesn't have the annoying plasticy feel against your skin that some cheap rashies do.

    Europe adventure

    Very good. I mainly bought it because I’m overseas at the moment in Sicily and Malta as the weather is extremely hot over here. I used it about 4 times and found it to be very good indeed. Comfortable to wear when swimming and i think it looks good as well. Unfortunately i lost it in Taormina Sicily so no more Sharkskin.

    Excellent product

    I am very impressed with the product. As stated the fabric dries very quickly and is a totally different feel to Lycra. If it lasts as long as they say then I will be a very happy customer. Would thoroughly recommend.

    Great buy

    Bought this for my husband because he loved the long sleeve one so much. The water just beads off & they aren't hot & sticky to wear.
