Frequently Asked Questions

What are the size ranges for Kunetics apparel?

One thing we have found in our product development is that there are many more body types than clothing sizes making it impossible to have a perfect fit for everyone.  This gets exacerbated with the form fitting rash guards and vale tudo shorts that use form fitting compression fabric.  With that in mind, we did our best to create gear that would work for the vast majority of people.

Compared to other rash guards, our fabric is a little heavier which causes it to be slightly tighter.  Therefore, if you are in doubt, then order 1 size up from what you normally would wear.  Also, as you look at the size chart, focus on ordering the rash guard that corresponds to your weight instead of your height if there is a disconnect between the two.  This is particularly true if you are shorter and stockier.

The Vale Tudo shorts are based on waist size ranges.  Where there is an overlap, go with the bigger size.  For example, if you are a 32 inch waist, then your options are to order a 30-32 or a 32-34.  Go with the 32-34.

What is the best laundry and care treatment?

To extend the life of your apparel, we recommend the following care:

  • Machine wash cold with like colors
  • Only non-chlorine bleach when needed
  • Tumble dry low
  • Warm iron if needed
  • Do not wash with a garment containing Velcro as that can cause tearing
  • Do not use dryer sheets with a rash guard

Here is also a handy link to all those symbols you see in the label.

What is the returns and exchange policy?

We do our best to make sure every piece of Kunetics gear leaves our hands in perfect condition and that your order is filled accurately. However, occasions arise when you may need to return an item. Unwashed items showing no signs of wear may be returned to us for a period of up to 30 days from the date of purchase. A refund will be issued to your account.

If you want to exchange an item, you need to place a new order for the item(s) that you want. In parallel, we will process the refund of the item you want to exchange.  They are two separate transactions.  Doing this allows you to get the exchanged item quicker than if you had to return the item first before we shipped the new item.  

Return shipping will be paid by Kunetics when:

  • You have received damaged merchandise.
  • You receive merchandise in a color different from what you ordered.
  • You receive an item you did not order.
  • You have received merchandise in a size you did not order. For instance, if you order a pair of shorts in a size Small and you receive a size Large, then we will be happy to pay the return shipping.

What is your shipping & handling policy?

We have free shipping on orders over $75!  For orders below that, we are using the USPS flat rate priority pricing.  The bottom line is that we are not trying to make money on shipping and handling.

When you place an order you will get and e-receipt, not a paper copy.

What PURE tech wicking technology and why is it important?

Conventional polyester shirts often leave over 80% of their original moisture when cleaned using conducting surface evaporation tests.  Even standard wicking polyester shirts leave over 20% of microbes when cleaned.  Our PURE tech shirts virtually eliminate all original moisture.  The test was performed gently washing the shirts at 40 degrees Celsius and tumble drying for 40 minutes.  The net result is that our PURE-tech MITUSA shirts will leave you with a shirt that:

  • Wicks moisture away to give you long-term comfort and minimal stains
  • Minimizes microbes to protect you from illness
  • Dries rapidly by increasing surface migration and evaporation
  • Reduces static to improve comfort and appearance
  • Offers 50+ UPF protection to prevent sunburn


What is the story behind the Nuance and MITUSA names?

Our rash guards and vale tudo shorts are part of the NUANCE line because there are so many little details put into the garments to make them distinct.  You can read more about those here.

All of our products are proudly Made In The USA.  MITUSA simply derives from combining the front letters of Made In The USA.
