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.

  • Skin Cooler 90™  fabric on back, sleeves and neckline collar for cooling comfort.

  • Aerodynamic race fit
  • Full-front YKK® zip for easy, on-the-go ventilation 
  • Bottom zip garage for comfort
  • 3 back pockets to store training/racing essentials
  • Skin Cooler 90™ sleeves designed for more comfort in the aero position
  • Strong and durable, yet non-abrasive contrast flat-stitch
  • Works well for swimming when worn under a wetsuit
  • Not recommended for repeated use in a chlorinated pool
  • Made in USA
    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.

    Life saver in summer !

    I live in very hot and humid climate. I was never able to train properly outdoors in summer until I discovered De Soto! I'm usually covered from head to toe with De Soto clothes including head cover, arm and leg coolers and jerseys or t-shirts. Now I can crush ultra distances in the heat comfortably. Thanks De Soto !

    Comfy and Cool

    Works great, keeps me feeling cool, and the best jersey I have ever used. The fit is comfortably snug, doesn't flap in the wind, and many folks have commented on its good looks. I highly recommend this product, it will last a lifetime.

    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.
