the hero inflatable rash guard comes to the rescue in times of trouble
Our revolutionary HERO rash guard will inflate if you’re in trouble in the water - 50 + SPF protects you from the sun’s harmful UV rays and prevents chaffing. The HERO is so comfortable you will forget you have it on.
We are here to keep you and your loved ones safe
At HERO, we love the water, but we understand the dangers involved. That’s why we have created the HERO to keep you safe when the unexpected happens.
What makes a HERO ?
Certified ISO 50 Life Saving Device
50+ SPF Sun Protection
Comfortable & Suitable for all water activities
Designed for maximum comfort and safety
If it doesn’t feel good, you won’t wear it. That’s why we made sure the HERO Inflatable Rash guard is incredibly comfortable and great looking. A blend of 80% polyester and 20% lycra with “Flat Lock” seams and double lining makes for a soft, light and wearable HERO that moves as you do. It's so comfortable you won't know you have it on.
A HERO for all ages and activities
Action packed water sports like surfing, kite surfing and white water rafting carry inherent risks. But so does a day at beach or out on the boat - no one is exempt. That’s why we’ve got everyone covered with rash guards available from Child’s Size 4 to Adult XXL.
Stays in place to keep you safe
Your HERO is close fitting and won’t ride up or slip off. It is fitted with an embedded 1” nylon waist belt and heavy duty YKK snap buckle allowing for full adjustment
High Quality Components, Durable Design
We use the highest quality materials for comfort and durability, including YKK zips, 40 Denier 80/20 Polyester/Lycra Blend material, YKK 1” belt and buckle and UML inflators, all components are certified for use in life-saving devices
The double lined HERO Inflatable Rash Guard has a 220 Denier inflation chamber which helps stabilise body temperature in cooler waters, while the comfortably lined zip can be partially unzipped to allow for cooling water circulation in warmer circumstances

Multiple Inflation Options
For activities based around water (sailing, boating, fishing) you can use your shirt with auto inflation. If you are using your shirt in the water and find yourself in trouble pull the red toggle to inflate via the CO2 cartridge. You can also inflate your HERO for custom buoyancy via the oral inflation tube.
