Our Skin Cooler Half Zip Tri Top was created for those who prefer a sleeveless top but still want the cooling benefits of our Skin Cooler 90. A half zip makes adjusting ventilation on-the-go a breeze, and 2 side pockets provide ample storage space. 

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.
  • 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.

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.

Most comfortable tri top ever

This tri top is the most comfortable I have ever worn and on top of that provided some cooling in the hot, humid Georgia weather. It motivates me to shop for similar bottoms

Skin Cooler Half Zip

Great product. Fit is superb, long enough so it doesn't ride up. Skin cooler fabric works well. As with all Desoto products, it is a superior tri top.

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.
