UPF Sun Protection with Arctic Cool

You probably already know that Hydrofreeze X Cooling Technology offers incredible protection from the heat of the sun. But did you know that it also offers protection from the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays?  

Tested, Proven Protection

We’ve always been committed to making Arctic Cool products that provide real solutions for our customers. With that in mind, we designed our cooling jersey fabric to maximize UV protection, as well as incorporate our exclusive Hydrofreeze X Cooling Technology. Recently, we sent our jersey fabric to an independent testing facility to see how much protection it offered. After rigorous UVA and UVB testing, we are excited to announce our revolutionary fabric was officially rated with a UPF EXCELLENT rating of 50+. A UPF rating is similar to the SPF rating used in cosmetic products like sunscreens and lotions. Not all apparel is equal when it comes to UPF protection. Typical summer clothing only has a UPF rating between 6 and 7, and in order to advertise a claim of UV protection, garments only have to be certified with a UPF rating of 15.  

How UPF 50+ Helps Protect Your Skin

A UPF rating of 50+ blocks 98% of both UVA and UVB rays. High exposure to UV rays can cause a myriad of health issues. UVA rays can age skin cells, causing wrinkles, sunspots, and burns, and can even cause some forms of skin cancer. UVB rays are stronger than UVA rays, so they can damage the DNA of your skin cells. Most skin cancers are caused by UVB rays. It is crucial to your health to protect yourself from these damaging rays. With Arctic Cool’s UPF 50+ rated shirts, you can be sure that your skin is protected. And even better? The UPF protection will never wash out because it is an inherent characteristic of the fabric.  

How to Protect Yourself with Arctic Cool

The UPF 50+ rating applies to all of our non-mesh products: Men’s Crew Neck, Men’s Workwear Tee, Men’s Polo, Women’s V-Neck, and Women’s Polo. So if you are planning to wear your Arctic Cool gear while you’re enjoying the great outdoors, we recommend ordering one of our certified UPF styles!   Sun protection   We are so excited that our products now offer official protection from UV rays! If you are out in the sun for long periods of time, Arctic Cool has you covered!
