As summer starts to cool down and we welcome fall, it's time to consider sun protection clothing for the new season. While the sun may not feel as intense during these months, ultraviolet rays are still a threat as you can get sunburned during any time of the year - yes, even when it's cloudy and cold outside.
Fortunately, there are plenty of options to choose from when it comes to sun protective clothing for fall, including UPF jackets. In this blog post, we will explain what to look for when choosing a UPF jacket and provide our favorite sun protective jacket and hoodie options for the entire family.
Factors to Consider Before Choosing a UPF Jacket/Hoodie
When it comes time to shop for UPF jackets for you or your family, keep the following factors in mind:
Remember the higher the UPF rating, the safer your skin is from UVA and UVB rays. Choose a UPF rating of 50+ whenever possible.
Make sure you like the feel of your jacket's fabric. If you have kids, you also want to make sure they feel comfortable in the sun protective jacket too so they'll actually want to wear it.
All of our jackets and hoodies are made with lightweight and breathable UPF fabric to keep everyone in the family comfortable and happy no matter what activity they're doing.
Also, opt for sun protective jackets that are made with high-quality, breathable and durable fabric so they will last long and keep you comfortable and dry throughout the day.
Fall weather can vary, so choose a UPF jacket that will keep you warm but also comfortable. Look for words like "lightweight, breathable, versatile, and quick-drying" when choosing a hoodie/jacket.
When it comes to hoodies and jackets, versatility is a must. Choose a sun protective jacket that you can wear doing anything from hiking and fishing to running errands around town.
Check out brands that have a solid reputation, lots of customer reviews, and a commitment to their customers. We also recommend choosing a brand that third-party tests their UPF clothing, like we do here at UV Skinz, for quality control.
Review other customers' reviews online to learn more about the comfort level and functionality of the UPF jackets you're looking to buy.
Consider your budget and what makes the most sense for you and your family. High quality UPF jackets can vary in price, so be sure to do some research to find one that best suits your needs and budget.
