Clothing is our first line of defense against the harmful radiation of the sun and it’s important that we know and understand that just like different sunscreens, different materials and fabrics have varying degrees of protection against UV radiation.
Not all fabrics are created equal. Most often in the heat of the summer sun, we choose to wear very loosely fitted, thin clothing or even nothing at all in some areas, exposing much of our body to harmful radiation. The simple fact is that while most of us do care about keeping ourselves protected, there aren’t many clothes in our wardrobe that we would consider both covered and cool on the skin and when it comes down to it, we prefer to be cooler and “just risk it” than put on long sleeves. Even if we do put on a long sleeve shirt, chances are that it isn’t a UPF rated material and will only protect our skin from a fraction of UV rays. All of our products are made from our high tech SPOne fabric that combines a certified UPF50+ rating with the unique cooling properties from our moisture-wicking technology to offer an all-in-one solution to keeping cool and protected under the sun. Simply put, it’s like having a constant breeze over your arms that also keeps the sun away.
A lot of research and testing has gone into our fabric to come up with a revolutionary solution to the classic summer conundrum. Our products are intended to be worn fitted on the skin and our 4 way stretch fabric means it will conform to the natural contours of your arms, legs, or body and is comfortable enough to keep on all day. Soft to the touch and gentle on the skin, it is hypoallergenic and antibacterial, suitable for all skin types but as with all things, we recommend washing them before initial use.
