A slightly bizarre and specific question but has anyone got any recommendations for fast dry paddling 'tank tops'.

I'm based in Hong Kong with a lot more free time due to the various quarantines and looks like I will be paddling through the insanely hot summer. Would love to do this in a tank top or equivalent.

Thoughts?

have a look at these Mocke shirts, & don't bother cutting the sleeves off. The material is fantastic even in high temps & high humidity. Easily the best paddling shirt I've ever owned.

Having a family of 6 (not including the dog), I'm always looking for a good value and I found "generics" on amazon that have both worked out really well.  One is DRSKIN and the other is Tesla brand.  The DRSKIN I have is a long sleeve but its fast drying and coo enough to where on warmer days for sure.  They also make a short sleeve and tank top.  The best part is that they are $12 US.  For that kind of money it's way less painful trying one out.

I'll second the Mocke shirts. I use one as my go-to race shirt in warm weather. Super breathable and dries quickly. Patagonia also makes some great quick dry paddling shirts. I teach sailing in the summertime and after my run in last year with skin cancer I try to cover up more. Having a quick dry and breathable shirt is a requirement.

Sorry for the slow response; as with many I'm sure, COVID-19 and the complications it has brought meant I was delayed.

In short, got Mocke top, best shaped and fastest drying top I've ever owned.
