Sun protection

What caused you to become interested in UV protective clothing?

I became interested in UV clothing after my mom was diagnosed with Stage IV Malignant Melanoma. Being a golfer requires the majority of my time in the sun. I became more interested in it after I was diagnosed.

How did the fabric feel on your skin?

I find the clothing comfortable, cool, and very diverse with my career. I most recently let my caddy wear one of UVSkinz shirts and he fell in love with it. Said it was the nicest shirt he’d ever worn. I specifically like the fact that it’s not a heavyweight shirt and when I’m golfing and sweating it doesn’t stick to my skin and allows me to feel cool and comfortable. I have received many compliments when I wear my UV protective shirts and it’s stylish in the life of a golf professional.

Would you recommend this shirt to your fellow golfers? Why?

I would urge anyone, especially golfers to try this product. It could make a difference in saving your life as well as make you have that ease of mind that your body is protected while playing the game you love. UV Skinz has quality products for a great price….they are comfortable, cool, washable, wearable and most importantly they protect your body.

Final thoughts from David Henry.

People don’t realize the dangers of the sun and think just by applying sunblock you are safe. Well, that’s not always the case. Wearing UV clothing protects your body more! I have tried many different types of UV protective clothing but I can honestly say that UV Skinz overall products are far more advanced in every aspect.
