The evidence of how dangerous direct contact with the Sun's UV rays can be continues to pile up. Skin cancer is among the most preventable forms of cancer today, yet is among the most common. Protecting one's self from the harmful rays can see daunting at times due to the lack of information and the poor performance and hassle sunscreen application presents.
Wearing a UPF shirt when its extremely hot outside may intuitively sound uncomfortable, but in reality it actually keeps you cooler. Direct contact with the sun warms the body throughout the day and as the body is exposed to direct UV rays the internal temperature actually increases. The shirt blocks the direct rays while also wicking sweat from the body to keep the wearer cool throughout the day of fishing.
