Suncreen is the first line of defense for many people. It provides some protection; however, it can be messy and must be consistently and repeatedly applied. Many sun fans are looking to sun protective clothing to make life outdoors safer and easier. Sun protective clothing has come a long way in recent years. While some still associate protective clothing with bedsheets, clothing designers have worked to produce outerwear that provides great protection (UPF 50+) and that looks great. Special fabrics make sun protective clothing cool and comfortable, providing an easy way to enjoy that sunny day.
