Long Sleeve Thick Skin (past color)

$67.00 $46.90

IR made the first production Long Sleeve Thick Skin in 1998 as a follow-up product to the Guide Shorts. “I had a fleece rash guard made by this small surf company in Maryland, and I loved it” says IR co-founder John Weld, “The fleece dried really quickly, and the tight-fitting rash guard style absorbed far less water and was less bulky under a dry top than traditional loose fitting layering” John asked the surf company how they made them, ended up buying the entire rash guard operation from them and trucked the machinery up to PA. The Thick Skin was born, and it quickly became one of IR’s signature products. 15 years later, the garment is more-or-less the same. The Thick Skin is warm enough to be worn by itself underneath a jacket, or as a low profile base layer on freezing days. Any paddler is sure to agree the Thick Skin is a quintessential layering piece with unmatched utility.
