Trail & Ski Carries Clothing to Protect From the Sun's UV Rays

Share Article

Trail & Ski is now offering protective clothing and wide-brim hats to protect people when they go outside this summer.

Trail & Ski is carrying Sun Protective Clothing for the summer season.

Summer is the time of year when the sun is more intense and the days are longer, so extra protection is needed as the sun's ultraviolet rays can potentially cause skin cancer. Any active outdoor person is at risk if they do not cover up their skin. Clothing provides the first line of defense from the sun’s rays, and the more skin that you cover, the better off you’ll be.

Trail & Ski carries shirts and pants for men and women from Royal Robbins, Patagonia, and White Sierra that have been tested for UPF (ultraviolet protective factor) ratings. UPF ratings measure the amount of UVA and UVB radiation that penetrates clothing and reaches the skin.

Trail & Ski also sells wide-brimmed hats from Tilley and Outdoor Research that have been tested for UPF. Wide-brimmed hats offer protection for the scalp, tops of the ears, and the back of the neck. These areas are typically where it is either forgotten to apply sunscreen or difficult to do so.

Both the clothing and hats have been rated with a UPF between 30+ and 50+. This rating gives all-day protection from the sun. A shirt with a UPF of 50, for example, allows only 1/50th of the sun’s UV rays to reach the skin.
