June is National Safety Month and that means we’re taking protection against sunburn. The best ways to protect yourself against sunburn and harmful UV rays are by wearing skin-covering clothes (long sleeves and pants), hats, sunscreen (learn about safe sunscreens here), and finding shade. So we’ve been out looking for a reasonably priced, quality sun protection summer jacket to protect our arms and neck from the sun. And we found it! You’ll love this hooded jacket from Uniqlo because it’s so perfect for summer — light weight, lots of colors, easy to put on in a jiffy. It is specially designed with a high UPF rating which means …
… it cuts 90% of UV rays! (And here’s a complete article about how UPF clothing is rated and where to find more UPF clothing) Basically, it’s wearable sunscreen. We like that you zip it up and don’t have to pull it over your head, the high collar protects your neck, and the long-sleeve thumb holes protect the back of your hands. There’s 23 color and pattern variations, including white and black.

For even warmer temperatures, switch to the Uniqlo mesh hoodie. It’s lighter and has a cool touch technology in the fabric to wick away moisture and keep you cool. You still get the all-over sun protection, including on your hands. 12 colors, including neutrals that go with everything.
