The Ultimate Paddling Base Layer

This t-shirt will take you from the beach, to the water and back again, always keeping you cool, dry and comfortable whether you are working hard at the gym or relaxing with friends.

Designed By Paddlers, For Paddlers

When paddling with friends or family we wanted a high performance top which we could wear on the water but didn't look out of place at the gym, on the beach or at a coffee shop too. Through using a special technical fabric, Dri-Release™, we have designed a top which offers long term performance which won’t wash or wear out. 

The hydrophobic and hydrophilic fibres draw moisture away from skin and dries up to 4 times faster than cotton which will keep you cool on the water when paddling or in the unlikely event of you falling in, will dry quickly to avoid getting to cold. It also protects you from the sun with 50+ UPF.

Slight stretch in the material means you can paddle without restriction and feel comfortable on the water, and it even features a concealed pocket making it perfect for storing a key or other essentials.

Perfect on it's own, or used as a technical base layer.

The model featured is 6'2" with a 40"/100cm chest and is wearing a medium.

Tried out my new T-shirt on a paddle today, really comfortable and dries quickly, looks great too


Needed a short sleeved T Shirt to paddle board and kayak in and this is brilliant and the extra little pocket is a greta idea. Really pleased.


The T-shirt is great....on the water or in the pub! (maybe a bit tight for the latter...I'm smaller than the model so got an M, but unless you've got less than 10% body fat, maybe go a size larger for social use!

I need XL size because of a wide chest. But XL shirt is a little bit long. I had to cut it, unfortunately.

Too small for me sent back for refund

Feels great to wear and is a better option than a normal t shirt looks smart as well of the board

I used the shirt today for the first time - 23 degrees Celcius , windy. The shirt fits perfectly and feels very comfortable. The protection against the fresh breeze was perfect. Unfortunately I got wet. But surprising for me the shirt was not sticking to my skin although it was wet. The upper part which had no contact to the shorts was drying fast. All in all I would say that it lives up to my exspectations. Absolutely recommendable!

The fit of the Shirt is good and a really flattering material. It has a handy pocket which is an added bonus. The t-shirt itself lasts forever. I wore this shirt for 2 days of an event where I went in the sea and sweated a lot, but it did not smell in any way shape or form. It is odourless still. A really unexpected perk of the t-shirt. The top takes a small amount of time to dry. A really awesome performance top that can be used for any purpose.

Awesome shirt, went down to the beach in the shirt at the weekend, ended up paddling for 3 hours in it. Not once did I even think about the fact I had the shirt a good way. It was so comfortable!!! I used to paddle in a standard tee or a rash vest when its colder, but after a while they would irritate me under the arms. But with this tee you can tell it has been designed to be used while paddling, I continued to wear it while playing in the water with my son, got soaked, I was surprised how fast it dried out! So much so, I drove home in it, as it had dried out completely. Awesome product!!! Recommended!!!
