The Back story

We are a team of 3 friends (Tom, John and Alex) based in Ireland who came together after years of working on other businesses to create the best Rash Vests on the planet. Our focus was to combine beautiful detailed designs with the latest technologies in printing to create a vest that fitted and felt better than all others on the market. All in all it has been a great adventure so far and we are just starting out!

Why Rash Vests?

We spent our entire lives on the water in various forms of neoprene and water sports gear. Here in ireland it’s cold and you are always using various layers to keep warm. Then when we go to hot countries we BURN!! so rashies were always in our bags.

One day the three of us were driving in the west of ireland when the idea was struck that there really wasn't much scope in current rash vest design. Sure the Blues, blacks, whites and neon colours were there but really that was it. The idea seemed to stick with us until a few months later when we mentioned it again… after the second conversation we decided to do our own research and sure enough we never looked back..

What makes your product different?

The 3 major areas we knew we could improve on included:

Printing and Artwork

The latest techniques for the richest colours

Garment quality

Attention to every detail, from the first stitch to the last

Fit and feel

Comfort and durability as standard

Printing and Artwork

Up until this point Rash Vests had seen little innovation terms of  print design. Sure you could get blues, blacks whites and the various block colours but we knew we could take the design to the next level. Today we print fully custom designs across each panel giving the vests a completely unique look. As well as this we experimented with a variety of printing methods until we found one which was super sharp, extremely vibrant and most of all long lasting. Combine this with some super creative artists and graphic designers and hey presto! a whole new style of Rashie is born.

Garment quality

Various brands will source from a variety of manufacturers which ultimately results in a huge variation of quality from product to product and season to season. We have a single supplier who now looks after all of our production. Together we have designed a vest that uses the highest quality fabrics, extremely robust stitching techniques and some pretty revolutionary printing techniques that allows us to design the vests right down the the tiniest detail.  Combine this with the ever important SPF 50+ rating and we feel we have all the bases well covered in making a stand out product.

Fit and Feel

The final piece of the puzzle for us was to create a vest that felt awesome to wear. To do this we used a team of compression wear experts to take learnings from that of high end sportswear products and build them into our vests. This combined with simple things like locating the chaff points and removing the underarm stitches all came together to make an extremely comfortable vest.

The above is just an insight into our business and our journey. We would be more than happy to go into far more detail if you wanted it. Send us an email at and we can email, skype, whatsapp, wechat or whatever works best for you.
