UV Sun Protection
SOLAR SYSTEM SUN PROTECTION CLOTHING
Imagine life without skin (scary thought). Skin shields and protects everything inside your body. Radiation from the sun, and ultraviolet (UV) light in particular, is increasing worldwide with the thinning of the protective ozone layer. UV radiation is the most important environmental factor in the development of skin cancer. This makes skin cancer a largely preventable disease when sun protective practices and behaviors are consistently applied and utilized.
UV rays reflect off the water and sand and also reach below the water’s surface. The sun’s rays are generally strongest from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Select hats that shade your face, neck, and ears. Choose shirts and slacks made of tightly woven fabrics that you can’t see through when held up to light. Hook & Tackle® offers a wide selection of shirts, pants, hats and caps with an SPF Factor of 50+.
