Here are answers to many frequently asked questions about our retail products. (We use the same great shirt in our custom UPF Fishing Club Shirts)

What is UPF? (Ultraviolet Protection Factor): 

To cut the threat of cancer, we must reduce sun exposure. Long Sleeve Sun Protection Shirts are required to be tested to determine the amount of UVA and UVB radiation that it allows to pass through to the skin. This rating is called UPF or Ultraviolet Protection Factor. SPF or Sun Protection Factor is a rating that is given to liquid sun screens for direct application to the skin. UPF numbers are not equal to SPF numbers.

UVB radiation causes most sun burns. UVA radiation passes further into the skin and is thought to cause the most dangerous cancers like melanoma. It is important that you sunscreen protect you from both UVA and UVB.  Therefore look for a broad spectrum sunscreen. Although it may provide effective sun protection, SPF liquid sunscreen has to be re-applied, stains things it comes in contact with, including the boat, your clothing and most fishing gear.

In contrast, long sleeve sun protection shirts with the correct UPF will protect you all day long.

When it comes to the sun, let the shirt do the work.

What is the safest UPF value? First of all, it is advised by the Skin Cancer Foundation that a UPF of 40 to 50 in clothing is excellent protection from the sun’s radiation. Rattlin Jack’s UPF 50+ shirts have the highest rating that can be advertised.  Rattlin Jack Long Sleeve UPF Sun Protection Shirts, along with a Rattlin Jack sun mask will easily cut exposure to solar radiation when worn. Combine with a wide brimmed hat, sunglasses and fishing gloves for ultimate safety from UV exposure. Fish as long as you want!
