Similar to the SPF rating system (30, 50, 75, 100), the Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) rating system measures the UV protection provided by fabric.
Therefore, a garment with a UPF rating of 50 only allows 1/50th of UV radiation hitting the surface of the fabric to pass through. Simply put, a UPF rating of 50 blocks 49/50ths or 98% of UV radiation.
Whether you’re soaking up the surf, scaling a mountain range, or shopping till you drop this spring break, stay safe from the sun’s harmful rays with these stylish UPF-rated garments.
