Anyone know where to get some decent rash guards for cheap? I've been using the Walmart imitation Under Armour for about a year now but I'd like to have some better ones. I just can't justify paying $30-50 for one rash guard.

Any suggestions/recommendations are appreciated.



Note: I realize this isn't exactly a pressing need for a thread to be created, but I figured the Grappling forum could stand to have some life injected into it, however mundane.

Tell Jack his selection is deeply lacking.


I know it's surfing apparel, but I just don't think I could get away with wearing a turtle-neck rash guard. Too metrosexual for me. Next thing I know I'd be carrying a man bag instead of a gym bag.

I have an Ouano long sleeve rash guard. It's ok, I wouldnt buy it again. The material and seams are fine, but the chest logo started falling off after a week. Also, it's not a turtle neck, but it still rides up a bit in the front. Not a huge deal, just bugs me a bit.

I have a cheap Wal Mart rash guard and I wear it more often. And you can't beat the price. I buy most of my stuff from Combat Sports International. MMA Warehouse, and Fightrack.com. Check them out for sales periodically.

Fuck I just get Lost Rashguards at Marshals $10 so who cares if they get fucked up. Its always the same shit anyway you just pay for some name slapped on it. Hell when I go to Hawaii I Load up on them at the swap meets.

That's what I've been doing. I was hoping there was something a little better quality that wasn't too expensive, but I've yet to find it.


Oh well. Wal-Mart it is.

I don't know what rash guards cost in the US. But For 40 (~$50) you get a Keiko rash guard in Europe. So why not order one from an online store? You will know it's good atleast. Then there are some cheaper brands around aswell. But I wouldn't really care if it was $10 more expensive or not, you would atleast know it's good.

$40 bucks is a decent price for a rash guard. You dont want to get cheap ones cause they rip apart.

I have 2 Logo Athletic rashguards, one short sleeve and one long sleeve. I've used them for at least 4 months, and the logo on the front is worn, but fuck it, they were like 9 dollars a piece. The material is still in great shape.

For what it's worth, i've found some drifit wal-mart brand althletic work shirts at Wal-Mart and they're under 20.00 and that's what I use to train in. NO sence in messing up high dollor stuff and to my suprise the've held up really well, i've got a short and long sleeve and they aren't bad for the money for training in.:wavesmile:

Target is the way to go!!!....their champion pro-duos are awesome!!....for 13 bucks you get a good quality (better than UA in my opinion...barely thicker..more stitching...still cools EXCELLENT) guard that will last!!! Ive bought three...black, gray, and white (which isn't see through like the UA ones either....seeing someones nipples through a compression T is not cool.......or sanitary...lol) Hope this helps!! :grinsmile1:

If you smack your body with a bamboo stick everyday, for 5 years you wont need a rash guard! my skin is like armor..... thats what my priest says....lol..

seriously rash guards are over rated, but under armor,it's cheap, lasts and focus your attention on developing your game.
