Coolibar offers Greater Sun Protection than Solumbra/Sun Precautions

At Coolibar, we test and individually label each sun protective clothing item with an ultraviolet protection factor ("UPF"). We specifically label each garment as UPF 50+ (the highest rating label permitted).

And our UV testing is comprehensive. For example, unlike SPF ratings which only examine UVB protection levels, our UPF ratings test for both UVA and UVB. We also test our fabrics at both the beginning and end of their life cycle so you can be quite sure our sun protection won't wash out or fade away.

Coolibar uses a Range of Different Fabrics
We select a specific fabric for each garment, according to how the garment will be used.? Some women's blouses and men's sun protection shirts use 3D dri SUNTECT®, a tightly woven soft polyester with enhanced titanium dioxide - an ultraviolet diffuser - often combined with mesh for light weight, ventilation and protection. Our women's sunblock clothing also uses aire SUNTECT®, an ultrasoft, woven polyester that keeps you cool and dry all day long - and looks luxurious. Many of our polos use Coolibar's proprietary ZnO SUNTECT®, a cotton blend, with a bit of stretch, embedded with zinc oxide for comfort, moisture management and the best protection available. Some of our pants are made from ZnO SUNTECT® as well. Our gloves and driving sleeves use a polyester microfiber mesh knit that stretches, breathes and is extremely durable. Finally, our exceptionally durable, comfortable sun protective swimwear uses aqua SUNTECT®, a knitted polyester fabric without Lycra, that protects, hold its shape and has excellent chlorine resistance and quick-dry coverage.
