We’re always hearing of how important it is to protect our skin from the sun—stay in the shade, reapply sunscreen after going in the water, etc.—but how many of us are actually that careful when we’re relaxing at the beach? Enter Patagonia’s line of UPF products. With hats, cover-ups, shorts and rashguards, Patagonia carries everything your family needs for more protection from the sun and less chasing the kids around with bottles of sunscreen.
And when you’re not at the beach Patagonia’s got you covered, too. Regular clothing doesn’t offer enough protection from UVA and UVB rays, but Patagonia’s pants, shirts, jackets and gloves with UPF will shield you even when you don’t realize you need shielding.
Patagonia Boys’ Rashguard with 50+ UPF, $45
Patagonia Women’s Solimar Shorts with 30-UPF, $69
Patagonia Men’s Long-Sleeved Polarized Tee with 20-UPF, $45
