RECOMMENDED SKIN CANCER FOUNDATION logo
The sun is 91.788 million miles away from us here on earth—but dang, that thing is hot, hot, hot! And it’s rays are no bueno for our skin. To make the most of those bright, bright days, look for the Skin Cancer Foundation’s seal of approval for the best Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF). Frankly, it’s called just being smart.

CAN'T IGNORE THE GLARING FACTS
WHAT TO KNOW
  • Clothing that is UPF 50 or higher can block 98% of the sun’s harmful rays.

  • Mountain Hardwear's Crater Lake™, Sun Blocker™, and Trail Sender™ styles, all UPF 50 and endorsed by the Skin Cancer Foundation, block rays because the fabric is made from a tightly woven yarn that blocks and reflects rays. Zero additives that wash out or fade over time, just 100% natural and long-lasting sun protection.

  • Loose fitting clothing is optimal to block rays. If your clothes are too tight, they can stretch and open the fabric, letting more rays through.

  • Covering more of your skin is always preferable—even layering more than one UPF piece will provide more sun protection.
WHY COVER UP?
  • Ultraviolet rays increase about 2% for every 1,000-foot increase in elevation.

  • Up to 80% of UV rays can penetrate clouds, so even when it is cloudy, the sun can still harm skin.

  • People who live at high altitudes or in areas with bright sunlight year-round have a higher risk of developing skin cancer.

  • The sun varies in intensity by season, time of day and geographic location. A high UV index means that unprotected skin will burn faster or more severely, but even when the index is low, the risk remains.
