The importance of protecting your skin from harmful UV, even in cloudy conditions, is well understood in the southern hemisphere yet less so in the northern hemisphere. Which is why the Australian brand Zhik attach so much importance to their new UVActive® range of shirts for summer boating activity.

The UVActive fabric blocks out 99.5% of UVA and UVB even when the tops are wet, which far exceeds the exacting UPF 50+ rating. These significantly high results are measured under the US AATCC-183-2004 standards (Determination of the UVR Transmission of Dry Textile) and the Australian/New Zealand standard (AS/NZS-4399:201) for sun protective clothing.

Available in long sleeve and short sleeve, using a fine gauge, soft interlock weave, the fabric is highly durable, snag resistant and antistatic.

Ideal for boating and performance activity, as well as sun protection, they are breathable with excellent moisture wicking properties readily moving moisture away from the skin and the fabric dries very quickly too.

Suitable for all sailing, boating, watersports and shore-based activities, these tops are available in mens and womens sizes and are a must for warm weather.

RRP:
Mens UVActive long sleeve top £39.95, €49.95, US$44.99, AUS$74.95, NZ$84.95
Mens UVActive short sleeve top £34.95, €44.95, US439.99, AUS$69.95, NZ$79.95
