You can SPF all you want, but without UPF in your fabric, you might just end up with the kind of sunburn not even aloe can soothe. This long-sleeve was made for long treks through exposed valleys when your shoulder straps have rubbed off the sunscreen even your sweat couldn't get. With sun-blocking technology built into its fibers, the Mountain Hardwear Men's Wicked Tech™ long-sleeve T has you covered.
- UPF 50-rated to filter harsh UV rays
- Quick-dry fabric
UV Radiation is a non-visible part of sunlight associated with suntans, sunburns, premature aging and skin cancer. Sun protection properties of a woven or knit fabric are dependent upon transmission, absorption, and reflection of UV radiation. The fiber type, dye, construction and finishes determine these characteristics. Mountain Hardwear's UPF 30 and above rated garments offer very good UV protection from prolonged exposure to the sun.
