Mens Sun Shirt

(42 customer reviews)



We’ve torture tested these long sleeve, sun resistant shirts both above and below the water for the last 6 months cruising on Delos and are happy to say they withstood our abuse!  They are perfect for protecting yourself from the elements, whether it be blazing sun with their 50 SPF protection, that nippy wind, or even those stingy little beasts that try and get you underwater.  Plus the stretchy material is o-so-comfortable!

Kazza did the design of Delos sailing on the globe, and Mr. Brady used his somewhat dubious photoshop skills for the marketing photos….  We had them printed ourselves so there is no middle man involved, all proceeds go to support The Delos Project!  They are available in mens and women’s sizes to fit all .   THESE ARE LIMITED EDITION SO GET EM WHILE WE GOT EM!

– MENS Color: Citrus and Blue

– UPF 50+ solar protection!

– 100% microfiber, lightweight and comfortable.

– Loose fitting.

– This fabric is powered by PURE-tech™ cool wicking technology.

    Great shirt. Got the large men’s blue. Art on the back is sweet! Woohoo!

    • brian-trautman (verified owner)

      Thanks so much Glenn, glad to hear you like it! Fair winds- Capt. Brian

  2. Ann-Britt Everett (verified owner)

    The sizing is waaaaay off. For anyone outside the US, the sizes are too big – one should go down one size. I can’t find any info on exchanges or returns. How do I do this? Otherwise a nice shirt, but my family can’t use the two that I bought.

    • brian-trautman (verified owner)

      Hey Ann Britt- So very sorry to hear the size didn’t work out for you 🙁 . I was able to find your order number in our system, and I’ll have our fulfillment manager contact you via email so we can get the right sizes out to you! Fair winds, and wishing you all the best- Capt. Brian

  3. Joe (verified owner)

    These are great. 5’9” and the adult small is perfect. Bought both colors and wear them out on our own sailboat. Comfortable, art is awesome and they keep the sun from getting ya.

      Hey Joe,

      So glad to hear that, awesome! Wishing you fair winds on the water and thanks for supporting our project 🙂 . Fair winds- Capt. Brian

    Love my new Delos shirt! Currently having a cup of coffee out of my “let the sea set you free” cup and wearing my new shirt. Who knew clothing can make you feel so happy on a Sunday AM. I Wish i could upload a photo. I got the blue one and ill get my wife the pink one.

  6. PIERO BELLINA (verified owner)

    Good value for money. I ordered the size inferred in the sizing chart comparing myself to Brian and Brady and it fits great.

  7. Keith Seymour

    Dear Delos Crew,
    Love the design/images of this shirt. Did I see a light yellow long sleeve rash guard/sun shirt on Capt. Brian? I would love a light yellow version … the contrast with the blues/greens in image on the back is perfect to my eyes. Was a light yellow version ever available on your “Shop” page? Backordered? Available in the near future? Really love your videos. Keep up the great work! Fair winds! Kentucky Keith would love to buy one for boat’n and float’n in our KY lakes! Please email me if a light yellow version is/becomes available. Thank you!

    • brian-trautman (verified owner)

      Hey Keith, glad to hear you like the design! Your eyes did not deceive you, we ordered a light yellow one during our testing onboard. In the end we could only stock 2 colors for each, keeping too many color variations with sizes for all would have been really difficult for our inventory. I’ve noted your request in the meantime, but it will probably be next season before we continue adding any more colors. Fair winds and thanks so much for the comment. Capt. Brian

  8. Hugo Rifter (verified owner)

    I’m fair skinned and burn easily, so good ol Brady sent the mfg specs reassuring me that the shirt was spf 50+. Wore it every day on a 6 day backpacking trip in the Yosemite wilderness with temps of 80-90f and cloudless skies every day. Combined with a wide brimmed hat, never got a spot of red. Amazingly light and comfortable, awesome art design, and provided awesome UV protection.

    • brian-trautman (verified owner)

      Hey Hugo, so happy to hear that! We have experienced the same on Delos, great protection from the sun. Fair winds and thanks so much for supporting our project with your purchase, and hope you continue to wear it in good health. Capt. Brian

  9. Jack Williams (verified owner)

    Delos Crew— we received our shirts a couple weeks ago. Took awhile going to Lake Chapala area in Mexico. But all is great, the shirts are absolutely wonderful. Fit was dead on what I expected. I’m 5’10 -170# and it’s fits great. Going to get another in the Coral color. Sitting here chilling watching your slow mo sailing as I write this. Fair winds and following seas. Be safe on your journeys.

    • brian-trautman (verified owner)

      Hey Jack, thank you so much for your message and so happy to hear you are representing The Tribe from Mexico 🙂 Fair winds and hope you can wear it in good health. Capt. Brian

Be safe! and hope to meet you somewhere on land in U.S. Oh!,don’t know how long before the Baby get here, but Congrats!! From, Haines City,Fla.

    • brian-trautman (verified owner)

      Hi Philip, gottcha. We have had a few others request this as well so will put some thought into what is available for the same type of shirt. Our dear little Sierra arrived 5 weeks ago, and is a healthy and happy baby girl. We hope to be back on Delos in November to continue our adventures as a family. Fair winds and wishing you all the best! Brian

  11. Robert Eberhardt

    Have not bought mine yet but my Brother said it is excellent quality and very comfortable and they have the size for big and tall men. Go to other You Tubers merch and the biggest size they have is XL. Great Job Brian, Kaza Brady and Blue!!

    • brian-trautman (verified owner)

      Heck yeah Robert, we even got all the way up to XXXXL I believe 🙂 . Hope you enjoy your shirt- Brian

  12. Dan

    Question brian. Im a 38 inch chest. Approx 5.10. Slim good-looking intelligent etc etc. What size do you recommend bro. Apologies for writing to you hear. I didn’t tale the time to search your blog for another contact number. Best regards

    • brian-trautman (verified owner)

      You sound a lot like me 🙂 sort of slim (but not really), people haven’t complained too much about my looks (since I started sailing at least)… I’m 5’10” and weigh 185 more or less depending on how much beer I have been drinking…. Ha Ha I wear a L size and it fits great! Have also heard from others that are the same height and weigh in at 170 and say a L fits them great as well. Hope this helps Dan! Fair winds- Capt. Brian

  13. Julian (verified owner)

    Really great shirts in all respects – just buy one, you wont regret it! I’m placing order number 2, thanks Delos.

    • brian-trautman (verified owner)

      Thanks so much Julian, so happy to hear that you’re enjoying the shirt! Fair winds and wishing you all the best- Brian

  14. Jacob Helton (verified owner)

    I am 5’ 10” 195lbs and I bought the men’s rash guard in the coral in a L and it fits just right! It is made from a great material and the artwork in the back is splendid. Thank you all for the opportunity to purchase this item and be apart of the Delos tribe! I love all of your guy’s videos and would love to stay in contact with you all about your sailing adventures! Enjoy taking care of that little one of yours. Fair winds and smooth sailing to you, Captain!

    • brian-trautman (verified owner)

      Hey Jacob, right on sounds like we are about the same size 🙂 So happy to hear you like the shirt and we’re honored to have your support. Fair winds and wishing you all the best! Capt. Brian

  15. Dave Chapman (verified owner)

    White shipping envelope in the mail… new Rash Guard shirts for my wife and me! Love the colors ( his/hers blue) and the fit is spot on! Next stop, Caribbean blue seas with snorkeling gear!

    • brian-trautman (verified owner)

      Hey Dave, awesome so glad you hear you got the rashguards and dig the colors 🙂 . Wishing you fair winds and lot’s of good snorkeling! Capt. Brian

    Hi Karen, Alex, Brady and Blue,
    I ordered 1 for me in size XXL and 1 for my wife in XL on September 15 for Germany. I received it Friday 4 October right before my 2 week sailing trip in Greece. So the perfect time for immediate and critical testing:
    – I am a 6 foot 7, 240 pds athletic guy and whenever I usually order shirts either the waste is for super oversized bellies or the sleeves are for T-Rex arms. Your material fits just perfect!
    – During sailing the wind breaker qualities were absolutely awesome. Even the sometimes chilly northern wind in the Cyclades couldn’t get through. On the other hand while moored and the sun is burning down from the blue sky my shirt indeed keeps the cool.
    – After a swim or a wave kissing my upper body the shirt dries in no time!
    – And the best thing last: Although it is made a 100% out of polyester it will not stink after a hard day’s work.
    Great job, Delos crew! Only the 35$ shipping was a pain in the neck, maybe when you are in Europe I pick a few up … 🙂
    Keep on with the great work you are doing. You guys make the world a better place!
    Kay & Petra, Cologne, Germany

    • brian-trautman (verified owner)

      Ahoy Kay & Petra! We’re all so very happy you like the long sleeve shirts 🙂 . We spent a lot of time trying out different ones before finding one that we felt worked really well, so it means the world to us that you feel the same. Sorry the shipping and customs clearance was a hassle…. Just yesterday Karin and I were talking about finding a place in Europe to ship from to make the experience better. Maybe we can convince Karin’s mom to help us out from Sweden 🙂 . Fair winds and wishing you both all the best in your adventures- Brian

  17. Kay Kuhlen (verified owner)

    It’s me again …
    Hi Karen, Alex, Brady and Brian of course …

  18. Dennis Trop (verified owner)

    Ordered 2 shirts for me and the wife. Can’t wait for them. FYI. You had some JSON errors while processing the paypal request and had to go to CC as backup.
    Long time follower and was down in Key West a couple weekends ago. I think I recruited a few more followers when we took a day sail out of there.

    • brian-trautman (verified owner)

      Right on Dennis, thanks so much for wanting to sport some Delos gear! Always appreciated 🙂 . Sounds like it’s time to dust off those skills and see what’s up with those errors…… Thanks for the info! Brian

  19. Steve Potter (verified owner)

    Love the shirts!!! Purchased both colors……..
    XXL was a bit too snug, (I like loose fitting shirts). Reordered in XXXL
    and awaiting that set. Tried to generate a return label with your system and kept getting an error message.???

  20. David Conroy (verified owner)

    I got mine in the mail and tried it on before and after a first washing. It looks great fits well. I am 6’1″ and 185 lb and selected the men’s medium. I tried on some rash guards at a West Marine store to get an idea of what size to buy. The measurements for the SV Delos rash guard were pretty close to the one I bought at West Marine.

  21. Mike (verified owner)

    Just got it in and the XL fit was spot on. I’m 6’2″ 190 and usually wear the L in Colombia PFG UV shirts but a XL in the HUK brand. Shirt looks awesome. This is sure gonna beat having to deal with sunscreen, especially in places where they don’t even allow it now. Thanks!

    • Brady SV Delos (verified owner)

      Awesome mike!! Glad you you like the shirt. Stat covered 🙂

  22. SK in the UK

    Looks fantastic and can’t wait to get 1 for me and 1 for my wife. Don’t know how else to contact you to ask this: I need these shipped to a hotel in Orlando and want to get the timing right. How long does it take to deliver these. I am in Orlando Feb 25-March 4, 2020. Sorry for using the review section to find out.

    • Brady SV Delos (verified owner)

      Hey Hey! Well, it turns out our fulfillment shore support is in Orlando. Please email [email protected] and we can work something out. Cheers, Brady

  23. Trey (verified owner)

    Love it – BUT you show know that the sizes are huge! I’m 5’7″ weigh 150 lbs and wear a medium in everything – Ralph Lauren, Tommy Bahama, etc. Looking at the numbers I swallowed hard and ordered a small – It fits great.

    • Brady SV Delos (verified owner)

      Thanks for the feedback Trey! Will be sure to update as we get more feedback like this. Glad you got a good fit 🙂 . Much Love, Brady

  24. Karen Williams (verified owner)

    After seeing my new SV Delos rash guard, my friends said they had to have one!
    So I ordered three more, so we have three orange and one light blue.
    We LOVE them!! 😊❤🌎⛵☀️

    • Brady SV Delos (verified owner)

      Thats so cool! Thanks for the love.

  25. Rafael Veiga (verified owner)

    Greetings from Miami. Received my rash guard as well as my dads. I paddle board all the time but haven’t had much time with the lockdown. But man these are awesome! Material is very good, the fit is snug but very breathable. Love the Coral color and the graphic on the back is superb. Thanks for the sticker Señor Braaady! Cheers crew, stay safe and happy sailing.

    • Brady SV Delos (verified owner)

      Sweeet! So stoked you like the rash guard 🙂 Hopefully you will be out on that paddle board soon. Much Love,

  26. Jamie Riach (verified owner)

    Great vest, cool design and perfect fit – looking forward to giving it a work out sailing the Med in August, assuming we get let out! and great to follow it wend its way from the US to UK.. with no extra charges – always a bonus. To gauge sizing for UK size bodies, I am 5′ 10″, 11.5st (160lb), 38″ chest, fairly fit 54 year old – and a small fits well.
    All the best, Delos, Jamie.

    • Brady SV Delos (verified owner)

      Sweet! your gonna love it!

    Note: they are not color fast, I put a white sweat shirt over to of the Peach rash guard long sleeve shirt and it bled into the underarms of my Harley sweatshirt destroying a $80 Dollar sweatshirt. But I’ve still a fan since 2011, ship happens. We’re going to try and bleach the sweatshirt

  28. Mark H Ryan (verified owner)

    I wear these shirts all summer long in PHX playing tennis. Will wear them in the cool evenings as well. Very comfortable and the artwork on the bag is fantastic. Lots of my buddies as me what is an SVDelos. Hope the fan base is building.

    Okay dudes, just placed my order for Christmas. We live in Eastern North Carolina now so we get a lot of sunshine. We got here after 45 years in the Ruff Buff. (Buffalo NY) where February is the longest month of the year. But summers were all about cruising and racing on Lake Erie. (Buffalo’s waterfront is the world’s best kept secret) After experiencing the second best day of our lives, (old boaters joke) we headed for Carolina. Now my wife and I are all about kayaking and long summer days at the beach. My “Snow White tan” is now southern fried and I am in need of protection. So pon pon pon.
    P.S It’s late November and we headed for what could be that last yak of the year. I jes love the sout!

  30. Kay Kuhlen (verified owner)

    Hi Delos Team,
    I again bought some of the long sleeve rash guards, one for me in 3XL and 2 for my daughters in S. In particular when SUPaddeling in the Greek sun these shirts are a blast. Very protective, fast drying, light and … well … beautiful! Great quality, as usual, however this time the identical S size shirts differ significantly. One is at least an inch shorter and the sleeves are even 2 inches shorter than the other one. Unfortunately, the girls are both s-size (6 ” and slim) … I guess the final quality control failed this time.
    Anyway, with $24 shipping to Germany, I don’t intend to send it back. Just wanted to let you know.
    Take care, give the nugget a hug and stay healthy!

  31. Aníbal Del Prado (verified owner)

    Thank you, thank you, thank you.
    I really love this shirt. I have had my eyes on it for quite sometime now and finally managed to get me one. I am 16st heavy and 5.9ft tall. I went for the XL size and it fits perfectly. Not too loose, not too tight, just perfect. Delivery to the UK took 8 days, OMG, domestic posts sometimes takes longer than this. Amazing, simply amazing. Proud owner and really happy. I just need to get the blue one now 😉😁

  32. Amy Mercer (verified owner)

    This shirt was a gift for my husband. I was a little concerned on the sizing, but I ordered a medium and hoped for the best. It fit him well! He is 5’10, 170 with an athletic build. Shipping was quicker than expected and communication was great when I sent an inquiry. Thanks SV Delos! Enjoy watching you and your journeys!

  33. Paul

    I love my rash guard and wear it proudly when sailing on Lake Ontario up here in the Great White North (Toronto)! Love the design and it keeps me cool on hot humid summer days and it looks great as well.

  34. Michael Wagnon

    Hey Kids,
    Received the Coral XL Rash Gaurd and love it!!!! Any idea when the Blue XL Rash Guards will be back in stock?

    Gotta have them booth !!!!


  35. Peter ” Flying Dutchman”

    Bought several of these in different colors. I am an individual that needs as much protection from the sun as possible. I turn lobster red if I don’t wear any protection, SPF 60 is my usual go-to in Mexico on the ocean or the beach. I also wear a wide-brim hat and surgical pants as well with some sun tan lotion on my feet. With these shirts, I save a lot on lotion and feel better knowing that when I go swimming I don’t add to the environment as my lotion washes off. I must say whale watching in PVR in Feb is a must, just like these shirts are.

  36. Melissa Roehrich (verified owner)

    First – Let me say my husband is completely obsessed with Delos. Completely on his Binge-Watch list! We used to own a 22′ O’Day and he loved sailing on Lake Mille Lacs in Minnesota. It was a very sad day when he had to sell it. We’ve been looking for another one to replace it. ANYWAY – I bought him the CORAL Shirt and he’s worn the shirt so much I don’t think it’ll come completely clean anymore. GREAT SHIRT!! I’m going to buy the blue one this time. I’ve also got to buy a new baseball cap. We live in an old farmhouse and a squirrel got into his bedroom and ate part of the hat I bought him last Christmas. He was NOT happy! Ha!

  37. Barb

    I can’t find any washing instructions for the shirt. Can I wash it on cold??
    Hope so , I did!! Can I put it in the dryer?? I don’t want to lose the SPF properties!!

    • Brady SV Delos (verified owner)

      Hey Barb. Yep cold is just fine! and dryer is fine! it will not lose its spf properties at all

  38. Q

    Hi Delos. I have worn the Men’s Coral sun shirt for the past 3+ years. It quickly became my #1 shirt to wear all summer long working around the farm, kayaking/rafting, hiking & backpacking, and a few off-road adventures too. Sadly, my wife says the farmwork has stained it to the point of no longer fit to wear out in public. Time to reorder a new one and can’t wait to try out the hood version. Curious, do you know when the blue men’s sun shirt will be back in stock?

    • Brady SV Delos (verified owner)

      Should have shirts back in very soon!! Thanks!

  39. Jon Cudworth (verified owner)

    I got my blue shirt and liked it so much I ordered a coral one (Order #1235084, May 30, 2023). I just received the coral shirt but, despite the labels saying they are the same size, the coral is smaller than the blue by a couple inches in all dimensions. The neck hole is small enough to be difficult to pull over my head. The torso is tight enough to make me look like a sausage, and not in a good way! Maybe it could be offered to someone interested in a size 2X or 3X and willing to ignore the label saying different. How can I trade this in for an accurately sized 4X coral shirt?

    • Brady SV Delos (verified owner)

      Hey Jon! please reach out to [email protected] with any issues and we will take care of it asap. Cheers

  40. Amber Barber (verified owner)

    I bought the coral/orange sun shirt and I love it! I wear it to protect me from the sun while I mow my lawn and I also wear it when I’m working out! It fit true to size and it’s soft and comfy!

  41. Dennis Barrow

    I bought the 3x sun shirt because I found the correct size was difficult to get off when wet. I am loving this while here in St Croix!!

  42. Wayne Babin (verified owner)

    I like the sun shirt since its a sports tek brand. I’ve use those for years for kids baseball teams and they are great. One recommendation I have is when you reorder a new lot, get the Raglan Sleeves. The don’t pull under your arms and are much more comfortable.
