    Hoo-ey.

    And you still have to put sun screen on all exposed skin.

    LOL I saw that on TV, maybe that show The Doctors? But I doubt it would block any more sun than any other pieces of clothing do.

    I kinda feel like there could be something to it. Here is why. As you probably know my "real" job isdoing the grounds for an apartment complex and for this I wear long sleeve hiking shirts like this: http://www.columbia.com/Bahama%E2%84...efault,pd.html They have the UPF protection built in... Now they advertise that theirs does not wash off and one of the three things that attributes to this is a tight knit weave, but the other two things seem like they could be something that could be washed into the fabric. Now, why do I say these shirts even work? Between these shirts, pants, and a pretty goofy hat (http://www.tilley.com/images/styles/high/T4IS-2.jpg not me pictured lol), at my last blood test I was told I need to supplement in vitamin D. Which comes from UV exposure to the sun... Soo... I could only guess the clothes are actually protecting me.

    spend alot of time out on the water under hot sun......ive got certain cloths i wear out on the lake in summer that actually have a SPF rating to block out UV rays......dont bother with them for day to day stuff but they make a difference out fishing where im on an open boat under the hot sun with the rays beating up on me off the water aswell.....i will wear blue jeans before i wear cheap light weight pants out on the water.....

    My wife has a couple Solumbra shirts which are supposed to be especially good at blocking the sun and the company makes a big point of saying their protection comes from how the fabric is made, not on a treatment that can wash out. That makes me think others might add sun protection to clothing with chemical treatments. It isn't that surprising, since that's what sunscreens do. As for Andy's hat - it isn't goofy; I wear the essentially identical Tilley TH-4 hat.

    could be, i found out light color blue jeans are better than cheap wind pants.....granted the material is thicker but i always felt better getting off the boat at the end of the day.....the sun didnt zap my energy as bad with the jeans....besides a lil breeze and you can pour some water on them and they can cool yah down real quick, on a cooler day dangerously so...there is a reason survival experts say cotton kills......

    learned after some messing around with different experiments the more expensive SPF rated fishing shirts and pants were worth the money if yah wanted light weight cloths under the hot sun....the cheap ones werent worth it.....
