Ultraviolet Protection Factor gauges a fabric's effectiveness at filtering both ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB) light. In everyday terms, a rating of UPF 40+ means the fabric allows less than 2.5% UV transmission. UPF-rated clothing enhances protection against UV-related health risks. Increase your personal safety and decrease your reliance on sunscreen by covering up with our UPF-rated clothing.
