Whether you’re planning a holiday in the UK or taking your chances abroad, it’s a good idea to invest in a rash vest if you plan to spend time in the water.
While you may think it’s not warm enough to burn, the sun’s light is reflected off the surface of the water, which means you need cover for your skin to avoid turning a painful shade of pink.
One of the best value rash vests around is the CharmLeaks short sleeve rash vest with in-built UV protection, which can be picked up for less than £20 on Amazon.

Long-lasting, durable and easy to clean and store, this practical watersports must-have will last you for summers to come and through as much surfing, paddle boarding or snorkeling as you care to do.
Amazon reviewers have given the CharmLeaks rash vest an impressive average rating of 4.6 out of 5, praising how it’s super lightweight and comfortable to wear and easy to move in.
This is due to the fabric’s four way stretch, which moves as you do so you feel like you’re not wearing anything.
‘I love the colour and the feel,’ wrote one impressed Amazon shopper. ‘It’s so comfortable to wear. The material doesn’t feel too thick and it’s quick drying.’
The CharmLeaks rash vest will fit closely to your shape for a flattering yet sporty look rather than being baggy and swamping your figure
Another happy reviewer wrote: ‘I wanted a loose fit for our watersports holiday in Greece and this is perfect. It’s also a really pretty rash vest in terms of its colour and design. I would recommend it for sure.’
The fabric of the CharmLeaks rash vest is a mix of polyester and elastane, which makes it quick-drying and shape-retaining. It will fit closely to your shape for a flattering yet sporty look rather than being baggy and swamping your figure.
Available in 15 different colours, there’s a style to suit all skin tones and hair colors and you can mix and match them to suit your bikinis and one-pieces.
One fashion conscious reviewer who gave the CharmLeaks rash vest a full five stars wrote: ‘I now have two vests so I can alternate and I’m very happy. They’re great value for money.’
