Kenka has brought Meerkatsu on board several times, with each featured item getting better and better. Well, the upward trend continues as he again takes the stage for the new Kenka "Tortoise" rashguard. Built from a comfortable and flexible blend of 80% polyester, 20% elastane. This smooth and stretchy material offers plenty of compression support and is quite breathable.
Instead of the typical and often scratchy neck tag, which Kenka removed in the interest of comfort, they've got the care instructions sublimated into the fabric. All seams are tucked inside for a clean outside appearance.
The graphics are mainly white, popping nicely against the otherwise all-black fabric, depicting Meerkatsu's original illustrations on the front, back, and sleeves. Everything is fully sublimated into the fibers of the fabric so you can be confident nothing will fade, peel, or crack after countless sessions.
Slightly athletic fit. Generous torso length.
I love the fit of the kenda white tiger out of all the shirts I own. An XL with 185lb body weight 44" chest. I am a weight lifter so keep that in mind, muscley and fairly lean.
Fits good on the top, sleeves are good length in short sleeves and leng is spot on. It does not have any rubber inside bottom like some to prevent creep, which makes it worse I find. Anyways like the tiger sure hope this fits the same.
Need some info on sizing 43 inch chest 6 foot tall 220. I know it says i should be in xl but seen on other sites that large fits around that size as well
Hey hey - I'm about the same size and find that the XL rashguards have a little too much material in the armpits, with sleeves that are a bit longer than I like. I've picked up 3 rashguards from here (Punch Town Apoc, Tatami Thinker, and 93 Brand Mandrill), and the L sizes in Punch Town and Tatami are perfect - good compression fit without being too tight.
Hope that helps!
thanks for the info scott!
Unless most of your weight is in your legs and you've got a relatively thin upper body, then XL is likely the way to go. I'm 180 and the Large fits nice and snug like a rashguard normally should, so this particular rashie might be pushing it for someone @ 220 lbs.
yeah most of my weight is in the legs and waist area. so i will send an email to CS asking for a large if possible since i didn't want to miss this since i like the design a lt. I have a scramble and a toro in large and both fit great on me.
I don't know how you all fit in a large given you roughly same size but much less weight then me. Does it take you guys 2 minutes and a hand to get off the rags guard when your all finished?
hahaha. nope they fit me with out having a fight them off of me.
