WOMEN'S SKIN COOLER SHORT SLEEVE TOP*
Our Women's Skin Cooler Short Sleeve Top was added for ladies seeking a short sleeve option with vertical cooling pockets. It's similar in fit and function as the long sleeve, with the main difference being short sleeves, and two pockets instead of three.
Sizing: Please refer to the size chart button above for sizing guidance.
Fit Type: Form-fitted
Fit Note: Please do not assume your size is the same as previous years, please use our size chart and if in doubt, email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
New Features: We eliminated the mesh on the back and added two vertical pockets along the spine to help cool your body. These pockets can be used for nutrition gels, ice, or cold sponges commonly available at aid stations in triathlons and long endurance races.
- 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 pockets are not designed to carry excessive weight such as water bottles, gel flasks, or any comparable weight
Features and Benefits:
- 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.
- Offset seams eliminate the potential to chafe.
- 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!
- Reflective logos for increased low-light visibility
- Designed and created by women.
- This garment is not designed for repeated use in a chlorinated pool.
- Made in the 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.

Love this top!!!
I am trying to be better about sun exposure, so got this top. It is fabulous & fits me perfectly. It has pockets in the back that are stacked along the midline. I like that because stuff doesn’t flop around when I am running. It breathes well! I got an XS. (I am 5’6” and 115#).
Loved it. I wish you made more. Kept me cool in a 60 mile ride. Not too hot not too cool. Got hot there for a while and put some water in the sleeves. Worked great! Waiting for you to come out with some more short sleeve ones.
Hot & Humid Florida Weather feels comfortable
I’ve got many desoto products. Running and biking now in Florida, I’ve come to appreciate them even more. When they say “skin cooler”, it’s true. Great product.
Fun & functional!
Love the Super Femme skin cooler short sleeve top! The fabric is dreamy, keeps you cool under the hottest conditions. The pockets are roomy. One tip, it does tend to run a tad on the small size so size up
It's so very cooling--but oh-so-tight!!
I wore this top (along with DeSoto Skin Cooler arm sleeves and helmet liner) on a recent cycling tour from Washington DC to Yorktown VA. The temps and humidity were both in the mid-to-upper 90's, and the skin cooler fabric made riding in such miserable conditions bearable--thank you!!! The sun protection was also outstanding. ONE PLEA: my husband was able to wear his red Skin Cooler relaxed fit t-shirt and feel the cooling breeze against his skin, while I was stuffed into a (very, very) fitted women's top. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, DeSoto--recognize that not all female cyclists are racers, and offer a relaxed-fit women's Skin Cooler t-shirt in bright road-worthy colors. Many of us would be so grateful!
