I also look forward to seeing if it helps with sun protection on sunny days. A lot of people assume you don't need sun protection in winter, but it is just as likely that you might get sun damage when out for a long time. I have vitiligo (the auto-immune skin condition that takes away the pigment in your skin and makes sunburns very easy.) Due to this condition, I like to make sure my skin is protected all-year around even when walking the dog.
The color of the one I chose is great and bright. I was really happy with the look. The fit on the XL women's design was true to size.
I would recommend this rash guard, for sure.
