Our Skin Cooler Half Zip Tri Top provides optimal cooling for races or training of any duration. 

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:
  • Made of Skin Cooler 90™  fabric which blocks 90% of UVB rays while lowering body temperature, and creates a cooling sensation when wet
  • 12-inch YKK® zip for easy on-the-go ventilation
  • Deep cut armholes and off-set seams prevent chafing
  • 2 Waterlid (hydrodynamic when swimming w/out a wetsuit)  pockets to store training/racing essentials
  • This piece is cut long for longer torsos and for those who want complete coverage of the midsection, both front and back.
  • Reflective logos for low-light visibility 
  • Not recommended for repeated use in a chlorinated pool
  • Made in USA

Read this nice TIP FROM EMILIO: STEP THIS WAY! (AN EASY WAY TO PUT ON & REMOVE A TRI TOP)

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 Dermatologist and Mohs Surgeon Dr. Michael Bax.* 

 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 at Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, NY.  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.

***Dr. Bax has no financial investment in De Soto Sport and was not solicited nor compensated in any way for his letter.

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.

Great Fabric Good Fit

Just like the title says: the half-zip try top was exactly what I was looking for. I'm glad to support a company that makes clothes right here in the US. Good quality fabric, zipper, and fits me great.

Great Top

Used it in a race shortly after buying and it was awesome! It wasn't even noticeable during the swim which was non wetsuit, also liked the looser fit!

Excellent product and service

Recently purchased the above product and could not be happier. It's lightweight and comfortable with two good size pockets. The service drom De Soto themselves was excellent, it was shipped to Australia in not much more than a week. Would highly recommend the product and the brand.

The size chart above should serve as a general guide. If you would like assistance in determining the proper size, please send the following information to contact@desotosport.com.

WEIGHT - Accuracy helps us provide a more accurate size for you.
CHEST - Fullest part of breast, measured as the largest part of circumference right over the pectoral muscle.
WAIST -  Circumference measured at the belly-button line - this is NOT the same as your pants waist size.
HIPS - Circumference measured at the widest point, NOT at your hips where your belt may go. Typically this will measure just a few inches below your hip bones and around the largest part of the glutes.

If you do not have a tape measure and you need something to measure with, use a belt, or smart phone power cord, and a ruler.
