Are you planning on heading south for the winter? Taking a vacation on a tropical beach? Or spending some time “down under” to escape the cold? If so, you’ll need to protect yourself from the sun. A lot of people rely on sun block to keep them from turning pink, but if you’re going to spend a lot of time outdoors, that doesn’t always provide the protection you need.
Sunday Afternoons specializes in clothes and hats that will keep your skin out of harm’s way. Most of their shirts are rated at an UPF (ultraviolet protection factor) of 40 or more. Most of their hats have the even higher rating of UPF 50+.
Our favorite Sunday Afternoons Hat is probably the Adventure Hat. Designed for both men and women, the Adventure Hat comes in a variety of colors. As we’ve noted on our website, “The fabric of this hat, dermatologist approved, will block all UVA/UVB rays anywhere; in the desert, tropics, high altitudes, or offshore. Weighing only 3 oz., it makes it easy to pack in your suitcase or gear bags. This is a traveling necessity you don’t want to be without.”
If you want to protect more than just your head (and most of us probably do), we’d recommend a shirt as well. For men, the Sunday Afternoons Island Breeze Shirt has UPF 40 rated protection and also manages to be soft, moisture-wicking and well-ventilated. And, for the ladies, the Sunday Afternoons Passport Shirt provides the same comfort and UPF 40 protection. Both shirts come in a variety of flattering colors.
