If you spend a lot of time in the outdoors, you’re going to spend long periods in the sun. The potentially harmful effects of extended UV exposure are well-documented and well-known so keeping covered up and protected is common sense. And specialist outdoor clothing, along with high factor sunblocks, has a key part to play.
Unfortunately, you can’t tell how protective a garment is, just by looking at it. You can cover up and still get burned. That’s why Rohan pioneered the testing of clothing fabrics for UV penetration over 15 years ago. It’s one of the innovations we’re most proud of. All Rohan fabrics for hot weather, that carry the sun icon, are tested for their Ultraviolet Protection Factor and rated either High or Total. So, if you’re heading somewhere sunny and looking for some kit, this is a great place to start.
