I haven't worn the wrap out in the sun yet to test it's ability to block the rays, but I love the color and the feel of the material. The sizing is perfect. I'm looking forward to wearing it this summer and would definitely recommend it. I would also purchase other items from Coolibar.
If you spend anytime at all in the sun, these garments are a must. I now have 3 of the sun wraps because I hate wearing sunscreen. They are light weight and colorful and hold up well after several washings. My first one is 2 years old and looks great. The only slight negative for me is the hemline flips up on all models. I guess its because the fabric is stretchy. But I wear them everyday when riding my bike.
I've searched for a UPF clothing line that isn't outrageously priced and can be fashionable. I'm only 24 years old but history of melanoma in my family, so hanging out by the beach or pool has never been a fun option for me. My fiancé & I just returned from a week trip in Mexico and all my purchases were so worth it!!! I wore a simple jacket for jet skiing, my Zno? wraps by the beach & all day, but my favorite purchase was my hat!! I had gotten so many compliments and was protecting my skin. Very thankful for this company!!
I've decided that my arms get ominously brown during the summer, and even if I liked using sun screen better, it just doesn't offer that much protection. I was using the sleeves, which I like, but I like these even better. So I have bought four of these and I wear them constantly.
I like the style, the draping around the front opening and the handkerchief hemline that doesn't create an unflattering line. I only wish there were even more colors. I haven't had the problem that the other reviewer had with the hems rolling up, but she has had hers longer, so perhaps they took note of the problem and fixed it.
They wash and dry beautifully, they don't crush, so I can throw them over my arm when I get indoors or drape them over furniture and they look fine when I put them back on.
