09 February 2017Use since More than 1 yearI recommendThat review has been deposited on this product versionIdeal - snug, slippery and washes well
I am slightly amazed at the poor reviews here, this top has served me well (and my kids have loads of the short sleeve ones) - both under my full wetsuit and as a sun top. It washes well and is at least half the price of something similar in a "proper" surf shop
It is a snug fit - but it is supposed to be! You want it to be close to your skin so you can get a wetsuit over it. Which is why it has the longer arms - to my mind an inspired bit of design that stops the sleeves disappearing up inside my wetsuit and actually helps get my suit back on, especially when it is (or I am) wet
Sizing may well depend a bit on your shape. I am an M or L in most clothes and definitely an L in this. If you want something a little looser (as a sun suit only - it will ruckle under a wetsuit) then go up at least one size
I just hope they bring back the thermal version

Ordered Large and got EU Large (equals UK Medium) instead of UK Large. Sizing not obvious on the on-line order form. Also spoke to the Sales Team and was not appraised of this quirk.
As for the sleeve length, totally ridiculous. Totally disappointing service, do not have the confidence to use Decathlon again.Brand's answer :
Thank you for your feedback. We are really sorry to hear that our surf UV top didn't much your expectations. I can see that this is another negative feedback about the sizing issue. The brand if aware of all negative comments and they will be working on improvements for the coming seasons.
From other side this is surprising, because this technical rash vest is our good seller. Sleeves will become longer once the fabric gets wet.
Please do not hesitate to return this top for full refund or exchange to your nearest store or via online process.
Once again apologies for any inconvenience caused.
