It's a lightweight marvel, a well designed rashguard with sneaky labeling (it would have taken careful lighting to get the words and logo to show up so well) and important extras: the neatly sewn 2 cm rubber strip around the waist with a slightly more robust than usual boardshort connector. Plus the thin board-gripping pad material on the forearms. On the inside, it feels the same as the regular fabric, and the pad is flexible. Useful.

Rashguards have mostly become fairly standard, the main issue being whether they have an anchor loop to help keep the rashie down/shorts up. The POD's fabric is somewhat heavier than some (perhaps a white version for hot weather might be nice). Plenty stretchy. The rubber waist strip is something I've seen only on a few Hurley rash guards. It's useful. The elbow to wrist pad looks and feels, on the outside, like the knee pads of a quality surfing wet suit. It's definitely backed by thin, soft neoprene. I'm not aware of anything quite like it on the market. I'm anticipating a bit of improvement in board control and comfort.
