First Impression

In a hurry and looking for the gist of things? Here is our review in short. Keep reading for the entire version.

Aqualung makes some really good diving and swimwear and the Aqualung Galaxy Long Sleeve Rash Guard is no exception.

It comes in both a men’s and women ‘s version and both are great. I especially like the galaxy-inspired design (surprise surprise, I’m a Star Wars fan) and the formfitting cut.

I usually wear mine (I got 2) underneath a thicker wetsuit while diving or when swimming medium distances in warm seawater.

I like my Aqualung Galaxy Long Sleeve Rash Guard and wear them underneath my wetsuits all the time. They offer some decent skin and sun protection at a price tag that’s rather low in comparison to others out there.
