To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This was my daughter's second Kanu rash guard. The first one (pink) held up for two summers while the second one (purple) will need replacing after just 3 months of use. The sleeves are worn and the logo is falling off. However, given the price and fit as well as the added convenience of not having to apply sunscreen to my child, I will give this brand another shot in the future.
Offers great protection, and the color is so bright it makes it easy for me to keep track of my child among all the other kids on the beach and in the water. It is holding up well to regular use.
Update- the color on these fades very quickly. Even with hand washing and no soap, you can see the color coming out of the shirt. However, it is so affordable, I just bought another one. For a frequent beach-goer, you will need to buy one or two a year.
My daughter loves this rash guard and I love that it protects her skin from the sun. The only thing we don't love is that the color bleeds EVERY time we rinse it out or wash it. She's been swimming and we've rinsed it out at least 30+ times by this point in the summer, and the dye is STILL bleeding. Please do not wash it with anything other than solid, similar colors, even after many other washes.
I bought the pink and blue Big Girl M-10 for my tall thin 7 yr old and medium 8 yr olds. Both worked very well for our 1 week beach vacation and they wore it every day. The pink shirt did bleed slightly. But the blue did not. It fits well and worked well. I don't understand why brands except Speedo don't have lining for swim wear. It was very difficult to find one, but this one worked well without a lining since the material was a little thick.
Fits well and does the job, but the sleeves are slightly longer than what I would have expected. Also, the decal peeled off after 2 wears. Doesn't bother me at all and the shirt has held up to multiple uses a week, but when it happened I worried the entire shirt was going to fall apart.
Great quality rash guard. I love the long sleeves to help keep the sun away. It does seem to run large. I don't think we will be able to wear it this season, and will need to save for next summer. It would be fine to wear just as a top, if we weren't going in the water at all... but I feel that it would be too big when wet, and hard to get on and off and sag too much once wet.
Great fit, color and size. Provides great protection from the sun in style. I removed one star for how much the pink bleeds onto other laundry when you wash it. At least for the pink, be warned... wash separately or you will have pink all over your clothes.
I really like this product and it worked well for my daughter. However, if you are sizing it based on "normal clothes", they are massive compared. I would go at least two sizes lower than what your child wears for clothes. However, I am very pleased with his product.
I loved the brightness of this shirt; my child was always visible in the ocean or pool. Only 4 stars because it faded quickly. Day 1 after hanging it to dry it was dripping yellow water. It does receive 5 stars for blocking the sun. I bought this for my son since the boys version was out of stock. The only difference was the silkscreen color of the logo (white for the girls) and a pink size tag on the inside.
