Saltrock T-shirts Review – For the Summer and Beyond

I will freely admit that until recently I hadn’t come across Saltrock T-shirts and Clothing but when they got in touch to see if we’d like to receive some of their t-shirts for review I jumped at the chance. You see, I had a good rummage through their website when they got in touch and was immediately drawn to the huge range of t-shirts they have for the whole family.

We picked out some t-shirts for all of us, placed our order and then patiently waited for them to arrive in Portugal via a very good friend of mine who agreed to act as intermediary.

And when they arrived just over a week ago I was beyond excited. Firstly, because it was my first blogger mail here in Portugal and secondly because I couldn’t wait to open the parcel and see what the t-shirts were like in real life. I had been so impressed by the range of styles and colours that I hoped they lived up to my expectations when we got them in our hands!Saltrock t-shirts

Saltrock Clothing was started in the late 1980’s by two South African brothers who, travelling the world, ended up in Cornwall seeking ‘waves’ and they never looked back. Running short on funds they started using their creative minds to print original, surf-inspired designs and gathered a loyal following from the South West surfers. The brand soon grew and is now a well-recognised British brand that is loved throughout the surfing community and beyond.

The first thing that struck me upon opening our parcel was the bright colours and the quality of the Saltrock t-shirts. They feel really good quality and are made mostly from 100% cotton, which is a must for me now we’re based in Portugal. The designs on the front were great too and I couldn’t wait to get out with BattleKid to model them.

And we did just that. BattleKid and I first wore one of our Saltrock t-shirts when we went to discover our first beaches here in Portugal early one morning. We went early so we could avoid the hot sun later in the day and I have to say I love Saltrock Clothing. The t-shirts are true to their size, if even slightly big and are so well suited to summer especially. We had fun discovering Fabrica beach in our new t-shirts.

As a family we have also worn our Saltrock t-shirts to another beach this week at Manta Rota. This time we all wore one of our t-shirts and even BattleDad is well impressed with them. He thought his looked a bit big but it fitted him really well in fact. We had fun on Monday evening at the beach in our new Saltrock t-shirts.

So far, our t-shirts have been washed once but they washed well and on a first wash did not lose any colour or shape, which is great. I’ll update this if necessary after more washes but I doubt I will need to.

What I love about our Saltrock T-shirts:

  • Excellent quality clothing.
  • Great range of colours, designs and sizes for the whole family.
  • Feel and look great.
  • Value-for-money.
  • Wash really well.
  • Sizings are true, if slightly big.
  • T-shirts are either 100% cotton or a high percentage cotton/polyester mixture.
  • Great for summer and beyond.
  • Surf-inspired designs look great on the beach!

What I don’t like about our Saltrock T-shirts:

  • Nothing at all.

We ordered some Saltrock t-shirts from the boy’s t-shirts range for BattleKid, from the women’s t-shirts range and from the men’s t-shirts range for BattleDad, proving they are a brand for the entire family.

These t-shirts look great, feel great and are very comfortable. Teamed with a pair of shorts and flip flops they complete the perfect summer beach outfit. I am so happy with the t-shirts we received from Saltrock. I’m also thrilled to find a British clothing brand that speaks both quality and fun and I think we’ll be ordering from Saltrock again.

I cannot recommend Saltrock t-shirts and clothing enough. The Battle Family have been very impressed with the t-shirts we have received and we’ve had a great time modelling them at the beach for this review. No doubt they will be well worn this summer and for a long time to come.Saltrock t-shirts Saltrock t-shirts

Last week while BattleDad was in Paris for work, BattleKid and I started to venture out and about a bit more. We were up early one morning so I decided to head for the beach before it got too hot for us. We were in the car by 9am and headed for Cacela Vehla which is only 10 minutes from our new place. There actually isn’t much there apart from a church, police station and a few restaurants, but it has a lovely view of the Ria Formosa.

There was a walkway down towards the shore via steps, but I noticed a warning sign for snakes and thought there’s no way we were going down there alone.

So instead, we got back into the car and headed for Fabrica which our neighbours had mentioned to us. This is a small beach, with water taxis available to take you across to the Ria Formosa. BattleKid and I just had a walk along the sand, dodging the small fishing boats. He also had fun filling his pockets with shells, stopping every few meters to collect more. Unfortunately they were all falling out of his pockets when he sat down to put his shoes back on.

We were back home by 10.15am, which was just as well, as the temperatures crept up to 37 degrees that day. Hot, hot! But we had a lovely morning at the beach, and fully intend to get a boat across to the Ria when it starts to get a little cooler.

Last week I started to venture out a bit with BattleKid, starting with a trip to Cacela Velha. There isn’t much in this quaint little village apart from a few restaurants, a church and a police station. However, what it does have is a lovely view of the Ria Formosa. We went early in the morning and were back before it got too hot.
BattleDad had been wondering what was there but wasn’t with us due to a work trip to Paris. He didn’t really miss that much, but I do think we might check out the restaurants down there. It’s only a 10 minute drive from our home but the view was worth it. And I’m sure the food will be as good, as so far we haven’t been disappointed with the food we’ve eaten out here in Portugal.

This week has been all about mastering a new skill for BattleKid. BattleDad took his stabilisers off his bike last weekend while I was away and with less than an hour’s practice he is cycling unaided! He can get himself going and is still using his feet as brakes but I can’t believe how quickly he has gotten it. Seems the balance bike is paying dividends now.

As my regular readers will know BattleKid has been enjoying afternoon swims in the pool. He’s been getting more confident going under the water too as I shared last week. However one day last week we were just a little too late to head down for a swim and he wasn’t happy. So, what’s the next best thing to visiting the pool to a 3 year old? Turning on the sprinklers in the garden of course!

He has taken to calling it “do the rain” and he had the best fun running through the sprinklers, getting soaked and trying to coax BattleDog in, who was having none of it! I shared a video on my Facebook page which highlights his delight but here are some pictures I managed to take before we turned them off.
