This is my favorite rashguard I've ever had, and I've been through a lot of them. I'm not much of a surfer, but I do spend a lot of time on rivers whitewater rafting and SUPing during the summer, so sun protection is a must. The Cruz is super soft to the touch, and the ruching at the sides adds for a flattering (and functional) detail. The half-length zipper is amazing too; you can zip it all the way up for full coverage, or leave it unzipped to show off your cute bikini top underneath. This is particularly helpful for ladies with bigger chests, too. Overall, this is the best rashguard I've found yet, and I'd highly recommend it.

I loved this shirt for surfing and spending long days out in the water or on the beach! I really like the looser fit

Is the zipper dark brown or black??

It is actually a dark navy
