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.
 

You asked, we answered and we are currently producing 2XL in LSSC, available early-May.

Favorite Features Remain

  • 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
  • Long sleeves for cooling and sun-protection on the arms
  • 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. Though it is designed to be worn alone and performs best that way, you can wear it over or under any triathlon top, tri suit, cycling jersey, golf shirt, or tennis shirt, and you will actually be cooler!
  • Offset seams eliminate the potential to chafe
  • 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!

Read this nice TIP FROM EMILIO: HOW TO QUICKLY PUT ON A SKIN COOLER LONGSLEEVE TOP! (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 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.

Good sun protection, good fit, very durable

I’m 6’ 3”, 190#’s with long arms and the large fits perfectly. I abused my skin when I was a teenager and am trying to limit further damage now. This top works great for cycling in the hot Florida sun. I’ve worn it many dozens of times and it’s still in very good shape. I like it enough to have purchased a second one FWIW. I don’t find it as cool as a regular short sleeved cycling jersey with the zipper down….but 90 degrees and high humidity is a pretty severe test for any long sleeved top. If the fabric was overall lighter and some mesh on the insides of the arms it might be a bit cooler but not really sure what goes in to making something like this. Overall it’s the best option I’ve found and my go-to all spring/summer/and fall. For the performance, full retail seems like a pretty decent deal as far as value too.

Skin cooler does actually make me feel cooler!!!

Live in Texas so I thought this shirt might make my hot summer rides a little more bearable. Pleasantly surprised that it has. Next time they're on sale I'll buy a couple more.

Thoughtful design

Best purchase hands down I did a 24 hour ride. I didn’t catch any sun with the great sleeves. The 3 pockets were perfect for cooling ice bags. Big enough for a phone on other rides. It runs fresh and not hot and sticky like some other materials.

Perfect summer base layer

Cooling fabric works well for cycling. After several decades, my arms have seen enough sun for one lifetime.
