Fit Note: Please do not assume your size, please use our size chart. If in doubt, email questions to email@example.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.

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.

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.

This top is extremely comfortable, form fitting and the compression fabric stays cool and tight. I love that the sleeves (very silky and soft and do not chafe) provide additional sun coverage. I no longer worry about those terrible sunburns on my upper back and behind my arms. The skin cooling fabric does the trick. I love this top so much that I now own three of them (all different color patterns).
Desoto product have my full confidence. I’ve been wearing the products for 12 years now and love everything I’ve purchased. Additionally the customer service is awesome. The Skin Cooler tips fit great and look even better. My only complaint is there aren’t enough choices in design so I could buy more.
There is heat [**** it up!] and humidity [doh!!] Here is the east [VA] we have both, and i was amazed at how well the jersey worked on rides of 50-75 minutes. Definitely a good purchase--i'll be back for more next year--Ron
I can’t say enough good things about this top. Another amazing De Soto product. I’ve been wearing this jersey since I got my first one in 2012. I now have 4 of them in different styles! Love the styles and different patterns. By far the best quality I’ve ever worn. I’ve used this jersey in very hot conditions including multiple Ironman Hawai’i and a 3 day ultra endurance event. For me, it’s all about comfort, cooling and looking good. This top checks all the boxes. The Skin Cooler technology is the bomb. It is such a nice fit and keeps me cool, which helps performance.
This tri top is the most comfortable one I own. Fits tight without being overly restrictive, and allows for ease of movement without any chafing. The top absorbs & wicks away sweat very well, helping to keep me cool as the temperatures rise over 100 these days.
