How do Key West Sun Shirts protect me from the sun?

Each of our Vapor Apparel shirts features SolarBloc® UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) 50+ sun protection, ensuring that whether the fabric is wet or dry, it blocks 98% of harmful UVA and UVB rays, offering broad-spectrum defense against sun damage. Additionally, the fabric is endorsed with the Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation, affirming its efficacy in skin protection.

Our UPF 50+ rated sun shirts offer comprehensive protection against both UVA and UVB rays, unlike standard SPF sunscreens that only protect against UVB rays. This makes our shirts far superior to the UPF 5 protection found in typical cotton t-shirts, providing you with much stronger defense against the sun’s damaging rays.

What materials are Key West Sun Shirts made of?

Our sun shirts are crafted from 100% polyester, featuring UPF 50+ Broad Spectrum UV solar protection and enhanced with M-shield technology, blend protection with functionality. This natural zinc-based technology combats odor-causing bacteria, keeping the fabric fresh, and enhances performance during use. Besides offering comfort and moisture-wicking breathability, M-shield extends the shirt’s durability.

Sun shirts, also known by various other descriptive names such as rash guards, UV shirts, performance shirts, and solar shirts, are swiftly gaining popularity among individuals who frequently spend a notable amount of time outdoors and are keen on seeking effective measures to shield their skin from the sun’s potentially detrimental rays.
