You're in luck! It's still available! When you write, please let me know what day and time you would like to stop by between 11:30 a.m. and midnight -- and whether in my driveway in clear view of nine other houses, or the Wheaton Police Department vestibule. Because of massive data harvesting on this site, I do not text or make phone calls. I reply only to emails through this link and to no other. I do not reply to, "Is it still available" because that generally indicates spam.

Rare. Very sought-after, vintage, men's Victory rash guard short-sleeve for surfing,paddleboarding, or scuba diving! Lightly used during a vacation for two times. Stored for years.

Victory, since the 1970s and until it went out of business, made the best surfwear and scubawear on the planet. This old-school Victory surf/scuba top is really cool for three reasons. First, it's vintage Victory -- it just oozes coolness from it's name! Second, all blue material is neoprene, so it keeps you warm and gives a higher protection than the rest of the rash-guard stretchy black material. I estimate the neoprene to be either 2.5 or 3 mm -- it's fairly substantial and will keep you warm. Third, that stretchy black material is important to give an exact fit to your body no matter what size it is and whether you look as ripped as Arnold was or whether you look as bad and chubby as John Goodman is. Importantly, that black stretchy but strong material covers the arms and shoulders not only to make that perfectly-sculpted fit, but also to allow extreme mobility that the thicker neoprene cannot provide. Also just as importantly, that black stretchy material runs all of the way down the sides in two long and thin "expansion panels" to ensure the neoprene perfectly encapsulates your entire front and back, no matter how beautiful or how oddly your shape is. Intelligent design tapers the back about an inch lower than the front for additional comfort so that the back tail keeps you properly covered and does not "ride up" your back.

The flat stitching is also incredible, as Victory sewed using double flat stitching in all areas and even quadruple flat stitching in the neck to ensure this rash guard will never come apart. I've never seen this level of quality and detail in my life, and I've been surfing and diving for several decades. I do not know of any other manufacturer that currently makes such a product that has such an incredible and comfortable fit, attention to detail, and beautiful stitching. Body Glove makes about the closest short-sleeved neoprene product for $70.00, but its problem is that there are no expansion panels or stretchy material to make its top fit as well as the Victory top, and the stitching is nothing spectacular. Get it now while you still can! I promise you will love it.
