You asked and we listened. We took our famous long sleeve Skin Cooler top (LSSC) and trimmed the sleeves. Perfect for racing OR as a base layer under a dress shirt. De Soto Sport - keeping you cool and comfortable where ever the day may take you. 

Sizing: Please refer to the size chart button above for sizing guidance. 
Fit Type: Form fitting
Fit Note:
 Please do not assume your size, please use our size chart. If in doubt, email questions to contact@desotosport.com. Triathlon apparel is meant to fit next-to-skin. This is to eliminate potential chafing, and unnecessary drag during the swim, bike and run. If you’re not comfortable with this type of fit and or are between sizes, we recommend sizing up. Garment will fit the most snug the first time you put it on, it will relax slightly once wet.
 

Features and Benefits: 

  • Skin Cooler 90™ stretch fabric blocks 90% UVB rays while creating a cooling sensation that actually keeps you cooler
  • Cooling technology is embedded in the fabric and will NOT wash out, contrast difference to many other "like" products on the market
  • Our longest length top for those with long torsos or in need of more coverage
  • Curved-tail™ front and back for comfort tucked in or untucked
  • A great short sleeve triathlon top; next-to-skin, zipperless
  • Pair with our Arm Coolers for convertible protection
  • The best first layer under a dress shirt with a suit and tie
  • Offset seams eliminate the potential to chafe
  • Three vertical pockets for nutrition gels, ice, or cold sponges commonly available at aid stations in triathlons and long endurance races. Pockets line up along your spine and are designed to help your cool your body. 
    • You might be use to only using the lower pocket of your current jersey, but you will quickly find the upper pocket to be great for carrying sunglasses, a cell phone or your mp3 player
    • The center pocket may require the help of the aid station or a bit more flexibility on the part of the wearer
    • The pockets are not designed to carry excessive weight such as water bottles, gel flasks, or any comparable weight
  • This is not a compression garment, yet it is supposed to fit snug, for aerodynamic purposes or as a base layer under dress attire
  • This garment is not designed for repeated use in a chlorinated pool.
  • Made in the USA
  • We are often imitated.  Remember just because it is white, it does not mean the fabric will cool you.  READ ON!

What makes ours different?  Our Skin Cooler fiber is designed to feel and perform like silk (from a silkworm).  Through Biomimicry, we took the virtues of this natural fiber and created a synthetic silk.  It will keep you cool in hot weather and cooler when it is wet.  Put it on and you will instantly feel the cool sensation.  Wet it and you will notice a drop in the surface temperature of the skin between 7 and 10 degrees.

A MEDICAL TESTIM0NIAL:  We received this letter from a respected Dermatologist and Mohs Surgeon:

 I am an avid runner and triathlete and I recently discovered your Skin Cooler products, of which I'm a huge fan.  I have been wearing them for a few months now and couldn't be happier.  I am a dermatologist and Mohs surgeon.   Every patient I see is plagued by basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, or melanoma.  I recommend your products to my active patients on a daily basis.  It allows them to continue their active lifestyle while protecting themselves from the sun. I find your product to be far superior to all other cooling and sun protective lines.  I truly appreciate your efforts and innovations. 

Note: No garment should ever be a substitute so we always recommend you wear sunscreen underneath these, and all, products. It is crucial to keep in mind that a sunscreen's (whichever brand you may choose) SPF/UPF rating refers only to its ability to protect skin from UVB radiation. Because we know that UVA damage can be just as insidious, it is essential for the health of your skin that you use a sunscreen that contains the UVA-protecting ingredients of titanium dioxide or zinc oxide.

Love these tops!

When looking for a tri-top that did not have a zipper on the front due to the chafing that it caused me, I came across the DeSoto products. When unsure of sizing, I emailed customer support and immediately was contacted by the owner to help me with the size and to answer my questions. Once the tops that I ordered arrived, I was very pleased with the fit as well as how cool they felt when wet under the hot Texas sun during my long training sessions. Looking forward to racing with my DeSoto Skin Cooler this weekend at Ironman Texas!

Comfort to the max

Feels so good on skin and once a breeze hits it while riding or running it feels soooo cool.

Better than expected

I had a tri coach tell me these shirts are too hot when they are dry…with continuous 100 degree days, I broke down and bought one…best purchase ever…it’s super hard to stay dry when you’re running…not only did I feel cooler, the fit was perfect…I felt covered, the shirt didn’t constantly move, it didn’t feel snug, and it feels like a great athletic top without the overexposure of a tri top…love it…
