Nifty Ways to Ward Off the Sun's Rays

"I resolved to investigate some new gadgets that don't just fight the sun but make it work for you. Looking for more inside knowledge on my outdoor problem, I contacted Arthur Jones, a senior editor at Mens Health magazine in South Africa. With South Africa having a daily average of 8.5 hours of sunshine a day (one of the worlds highest), compared to 3.8 in London and 6.4 in Rome, I figured he might have some good advice. He suggested the Coolibar Titanium Travel Umbrella , available in both silver and black for $39, explaining that its underside absorbs UV rays with a UPF 50+ rating."
