    I'm looking for a new rash guard and was looking for some recommendations. I've had 2 Korals, so I'm looking for something new. Anyone got any recommendations?

    The Rupture PTSi rash guards.

    MMA Fight Shorts, Rash Guards, Apparel | Rupture Clothing - Rash Guards - Men

    According to Rupture, they can be washed cold/hot, bleached, dried on high, etc. The fabric won't shrink and the print won't fade/peel/crack/etc.

    They are long in length which means they won't roll up or pop free from your pants/shorts (my favorite 'feature'). The material is thicker than most rash guards but is more flexible. I don't feel bound up when I wear mine.

    I've had 2 for a couple of months now and they are still in perfect condition after dozens of washes in warm. I own about 20 different rash guards, from the cheap ones to more expensive name brands. The Rupture ones are the first ones I pull off the hanger.

    starter from walmart. under $10 a pop and they're fine. i've had some stitching at the cuffs unravel on one or two but i still wear 'em - no problem really. i bought a coupla short sleeves and a coupla long sleeves for what i paid for one nogi brand shirt.

    it's just not worth it for me.

    Hayabusa ones are really good. They can smell a bit funky if you just air-dry them after a wash though. Hanging them up in front of a radiator overnight solves that problem. I've got a couple of them and I love 'em.

    My sprawl rashguard has held up well for the last year or two. Now that it's getting colder, I don't wear it so much since I'm doing more gi work (summer time = 100+ degrees inside the gym, gi kills).

    I got an under armor one from the store. I wear it 3-4 times a week and it still looks new. Got it in June/July

    Smells like ammonia? I dunno whether it's something about the material but my cheap no-name rashguard never smells that bad, air-dryed or not. A good drying sesh by the radiator will sort out your Hayabusa :icon_chee
