This is a great rashguard and has proven to be very durable. My only problem with it is that the cord for tightening around your waist is practically useless. I'm a skinny guy and the only way to fit the rashguard around my birdlike chest is to untie the cord. But if the cord is untied it slips inside the shirt and you have to fish through the holes to get it out. I just pulled the thing out completely and have a perfectly fine, cordless, rashguard.
