UPF 50+ CLOTHING, YOUR BEST DEFENSE

About 90% of visible skin changes such as aging, wrinkles,
brown spots and leathery skin are caused by the sun's
ultraviolet rays and can be minimized with Coolibar clothing.

WHY WE'RE UPF 50+ FAMOUS

Coolibar is the first clothing company to earn the Skin Cancer Foundation's Seal of Recommendation and we're founded by an Australian who knows the harshest of sun climates. At Coolibar we not only craft the highest quality UPF 50+ fabric, we also delight in designing our clothing to be so functional, comfortable and stylish that you delight in wearing them anywhere under the sun.

UV PROTECTIVE SWIMWEAR

Nothing takes on chlorine, salt, sand and sweat while protecting from the sun like our Aqua fabrics. Made with 4-way stretch for comfort and support in stylish, classic designs, our Aqua collection goes from wet to wonderful in minutes. Aqua Plus provides the enhanced performance feature of water repellency. Water literally beads up and rolls off the surface for the ultimate in quick-dry comfort.

UV PROTECTIVE CLOTHING

Fabrics for travel, adventure, dining on the patio, gardening, walking the neighborhood, where ever you enjoy life. Incredibly light, a soft cottony feel with a polished finish in comfortable designs and made for today's active lifestyles. ZnO weaves zinc oxide into a unique blend of cotton and viscose from bamboo fibers with a touch of spandex for comfortable, cool protection. Our 3D Dri features a tiny, baffle box-like grid pattern that lifts fabric off the skin, wicks moisture in moments of overheating and features a water-repellent finish that sheds water for the ultimate cool.

UV PROTECTIVE FITNESS

Outdoor activities demand our fitness fabrics. They take every ounce of punishment under the sun with moisture-wicking, quick drying and cooling comfort. Our lightweight, comfortable 3D Dri Active fabric with Cooltect? technology features a unique tiny grid-like pattern designed to lift moisture off and away from skin. Both fitness fabrics feature stretch and light compression to enhance shape, longevity and pure comfort.

Sun Protective Clothing for Men


What you need to know about how we test our Sun Protective Apparel, SPF clothes and Sun Hats

All of our Men's Sun Protective Apparel is tested and labeled for sun protection effectiveness.
In 2001, a published analysis of UV protection provided by mens SPF clothes concluded that more than 50% offered less protection than a SPF 30 sunscreen.

We independently test our sun protective clothing fabrics for UPF using current national test protocols.
Australians pioneered use of a ?Ultraviolet Protection Factor? more than a decade ago and now apply it to nearly 3 million sun protection garments a year, including mens SPF clothing, men's sun hats and sun protective swimwear. Using standards defined in this country by the American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists, and the American Society for Testing and Materials, all of our sunblock clothing fabrics are rigorously examined.

The fabrics for our sun protective hats and clothing are electronically tested for both UVA and UVB, laundered 40 times, exposed to 100 units of simulated sunlight, then retested. Our men's swim shirts and swimwear fabrics are also exposed to chlorinated water before retesting. Garment ratings are the lower of the initial test and the retest. We only market uv clothing rated from UPF 30 to UPF 50+. Our Coolibar hangtags accurately inform you of each garment?s sun protection rating.

Men's Sun Protective Apparel Clothing

Coolibar's sun protection for men includes sun protective clothing (also called sunblock clothing), sun hats, and swimwear. Choices include mens clothing such as our popular everyday button-down shirt and polos, mens sun hats in many styles, colors and materials, and SPF swimwear like rashguard shirts.
