Coolibar brings Australian advances in sun protective clothing to America.
The name Coolibar comes from a eucalyptus tree found in the harsh Australian outback. Our company, like the Coolibar tree, provides welcome relief and protection from the sun's damaging ultraviolet rays.
Our sun hats, UPF clothing and sun protection swimwear were the first garments recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation.
While sun protective clothing is a new concept in America, it has been used in Australia for over a decade where it is now more popular than sunscreen. Our Sun Hats, SPF protective clothing and UV protective swimwear are designed to cover a maximum amount of skin, use highly protective fabrics, and yet still be cool, comfortable and fashionable.
Summer clothing doesn't provide much sun protection.
Often, too much skin remains exposed. Summer weight fabrics actually let through an astonishing amount of the sun's damaging ultraviolet rays - they usually protect less well than an SPF 30 sunscreen. For maximum UV protection in the water, try our Rash Guards, or while on land, check out our UPF clothing.
Coolibar stands for the best in sun protection. It's all we do.
Australians have made sun protection a national health priority for over a decade. Utilizing that expertise, we continually search for more and better options to keep people safer. Our research, experience, and dedication to the science of sun protection are the basis for all our products. We now offer SPF clothing, sun hats, sun protective swimwear and zinc oxide sunscreen designed to provide you with the highest UV protection available and to keep you cool, comfortable, and fashionable.
