I'm not sure how to rate the fit, because this rash guard is designed to hug the skin, which makes it easier to put on and take off a wetsuit. Unless you have a perfect physique, plan to wear this under a wetsuit or other clothing. It is not loose fitting and it shows off any spare tire you may have around the waist. Since I got it to wear under a wet suit, I don't care. The texture of the fabric is hard for me to describe, but it's a bit rubbery. It hugs the skin and does the job of protecting my skin from wetsuit rash. It seems to be well made and I think it will last a long time. I paddle in Southern California and there are days when I don't wear a wetsuit on top, so the long sleeves provide sun protection.

            Bought this shirt on a whim when NRS had them on sale and it's turned out to be a good purchase. The shirt is NOT a hydro skin, but it fits like a lightweight second skin. I wear it under my drysuit as a base layer on cool days and under a fleece under my drysuit on cold days. It's a bit heavier than some long sleeve poly teeshirts, but doesn't come close to reaching midweight status. Neck is a bit higher than a regular tee but not high enough to get bunched up under the neck gasket. i can see wearing this by itself in warmer weather when I still want long sleeves for sun protection.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Excellent delivery, as always.

              Q:

              What is the difference (in performance and application) between rashguard and silkweight? I will use the item as a single layer in warm weather paddling.

                A:

                I prefer the silkweight for paddling in warm weather. The rashguard is heavier and since I’m not rubbing against anything when I am paddling, I don’t think it is necessary.

                A:

                I use both the rashguard and a Patagonia Capilene silkweight long sleeve
                for paddling. The rashguard fabric is noticeably thicker (better rash
                protection) and more form fitting (fewer pressure points from
                wrinkles). I generally prefer to wear the rashguard, but it can get
                warm. I wear the capilene when the weather gets hotter and the outing
                is short enough that I am not too concerned about rash protection.

                It's mainly the weight & thermal value. I have both and mostly wear silk weight unless temps are below 40 degrees

                A:

                Material, UPF rating and fit. The Rashguard is 8 oz. fabric, UPF 50+ and is designed for form fit. Silkweight is 5 oz, UPF 30 and relaxed fit. Both will work for your warm weather paddling, the Silkweight will be a tad cooler. However, I've worn the Rashguard in 100+ degree conditions; it wicks great.

                Simple answer: Silk weight is lighter and better suited for warm weather paddling. I know, as I canoe at my nearby lake reservoir state park frequently during the season (March - December? Temperatures permitting).
                Detailed answer: On the product page select the "Specs" tab to see the fabric weight i.e., 8 oz Nylon / Spandex refers to the weight of fabric per yard. Lighter vs heavier. Silk weight is 5 oz and Rashguard is 8 oz.
                Silk weight is better suited for warm weather paddling. But, it is nice to have short and long sleeve versions in different weights for different times of the year. I have a closet full of different weight rashguards and silk weight jerseys. I also wear them as base layers for X-C skiing, cold weather bicycling, and just for running around! I stopped wearing 100% cotton t-shirts and prefer rashguards or silk weights - they breath better, dry faster, and provide SPF protection . Hope this helps.

                I'm in HI now using the rashguard for bogie boarding and sun protection. Works very well and am pleased with it, especially for the sale price. Only downside, in my experience, is that after a year or so, they lose some of their 'stretchy-ness' and tend to get blousey. Then I buy a new one.
                I don't have any experience with the silkweight.

                A:

                No difference really, except that Silkweight is a slightly lighter and
                softer material than the Rashguard which has a more Lycra/Spandex kind of
                feel. Neither one irritates my skin and I raft, kayak and ski in the same
                base layers for each activity. All I have to say is that NRS makes the BEST
                base layers and they work in a variety of activities for a variety of
                different environments. Plus, you're making a good choice, their long
                sleeve stuff is VERY effective UV protection.

                A:

                I own the rashguard but not the Silkweight. From the catalog, they appear to be very similar and both would work for your application. The rashguard is slightly heavier and intended to offer some abrasion protection as well as protection against sunburn. The silkweight is even thinner, more breathable. It would perform about the same as a solar guard, but not as good against irritation from sand. On the other hand, if you are not actually going to be in the water, the option for a hoodie in the silkweight is very valuable — the back of your neck and top of your head are common sites for bad burns and ultimately skin cancers. The real question about use in paddling is are you planning to be in warm water as well as warm air? In my whitewater days, I came to realize I needed thermal protection most of all, even in high summer. I might wear something like the silkweight under a dry top or, for single layer, something more like NRS Hydroskin — a great option in warm air, cold water paddling.

                This shirt is made of a woven material. It will give some thermal protection when kept within splash or dry wear, but it's not for immersion protection like HydroSkin. Be sure to check out our new HydroSkin offerings, in 1.0 and 1.5 mm neoprene thicknesses.
