    Hi, I am planning on picking up a few nike rash guard at sportchek tomorrow. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with grappling in them? are they durable enough to withstand two hours of wrestling practice > 2 times a week?

    Thanks alot for the tips!

    Why do you need a rash guard for wrestling? Just keep the mats clean, but anyway the Nike one is as good as any I suppose. You only practice 2 times a week? What kind of wrestling is that?

    I don't do no gi, but I wear under armor type shirts (the tight ones) under my gi. I feel like they handle the sweat better than without.

    Depending on how much you're getting the nike rashguards for, I'm guessing 20 ish, then buying a rashguard more designed for grappling for a little more would be a better value. The stitching on grappling rashguards are better than the nike/ua dri fits in general, and may be worth your time to invest a little more in them. Cageside has rashguards in the 20-30 range when they have sales. Rupture has clearance short sleeves in the 20-30 range also. Those are the only two i can think of off the top of my head.

    I never wore rash guard before but recently someone gave me herpes from wrestling... My doc prescribed me antiviral pills that caused 100$ after 80% insurance discount.... I also get break out every 6 month. so i thought I should get a rash guard to save my self some hassle and money on medications

    Don't confuse compression shirts with rashguards.

    I've seen a few guy wear the compressions shirts right out of the box and torn within 30s of a match starting.
