UPF 50+ long-sleeve collared tee

(23 customer reviews)


Size and quantity

  • WHAT IS IT? A mid weight, everyday, long-sleeve, quarter zip top with inbuilt UPF 50+ protection
  • WHY’S IT FOR YOU? Comfortable, lightweight and incredibly soft cotton-feel top that’s as stylish as it is effective. Throw it on with a pair of jeans or shorts. This is your staple quarter zip top with a difference because when outside, you can feel safe knowing you’re protected by the UPF 50+ fabric technology. A standard white cotton tee is the sunscreen equivalent of SPF 5. UV rays can still pass through cotton causing skin damage – for fabrics, the SPF equivalent is known as Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF)
    • Long sleeves and zipped collar to protect and cover more skin
    • Completely hassle-free alternative to sunscreen
    • Small embroidered LifeJacket shield logo on back of the neck
    • Unlike some other UPF products, our fabrics aren’t chemically impregnated so you can be sure the protection lasts over and over, without washing out
    • All of our fabrics are UPF tested in every colour and model, meeting strict EU standards, and hit the highest possible UPF 50+ rating
    • 79% polyester, 14% Tencel, 7% spandex
  • SIZING? Casual fit. Take your regular size. Size guide here
  • ADDING YET MORE VALUE. You get 7-day unlimited access to the mole-checking app, SkinVision, on every order. Use the app to map, monitor and get instant feedback without leaving the house. Skin checking is just as important as daily skin protection. Upgrade to a 12m license for just £25 (a 50% saving for our customers). Read more
Our tip: Throw this on during a mid to high strength UV day to cover your entire upper body. Or when you don't want to apply sunscreen.

Reviews for UPF 50+ long-sleeve collared tee

  1. Andrew

    Great fabric, comfortable. Looks good

  2. Steve

    Love these tops. Good coverage and comfortable. Reassures me when not wearing sun screen that I am still protected from the sun. I’d love a full zip version with pockets and a hooded version please.

  3. Kevin Milton

    Superb quality and style with all important confidence that I am protected from harmful sun UV
    Fantastic !

  4. Matt

    I really like the brand and the products exactly match the descriptions. Nice touch to enclose a handwritten note.

  5. Phil

    Excellent products from a company dedicated to skin care.

  6. John

    Probably my biggest negative was trying to read the information on the containers. The writing was very small and the colours used did not help me>

  7. Colin

    I got the sky blue medium long-sleeved tee. It came quickly, fits perfectly, feels soft and has good long sleeves to help protect my hands if I want. It doesn’t look like a hi tech fabric so easy to wear all the time. Good value to compared with my other one from a competitor.

  8. Ian

    Great to find a long sleeve top with collar, prevented my neck from burning on long open top car journeys

  9. Nigel

    I was looking for another rash vest, one with a zipped collar, then this popped in my inbox, having being a regular user of the moisturiser and sun gel, perfect, just what I was looking for and by a brand I already love and trust.

  10. Mark

    Not cheap but decent vale for money. A quality product

  11. Stuart

    Superb products, superb customer service.

  12. Ian

    Very comfortable to wear , great fit and product

  13. Scott

    Great mission with super products and a real personal feel to the shopping experience. Support the team, do good and look after yourself. What’s not to like?!

  14. Michael m

    great top, finally not a top that is skin tight. I’m 5’10 and around 12.5st and the large is perfect. good quality and smart top

  15. Daniel Smith

    I’ve a history of skin cancers within the men of my family, predominantly because most of our careers have meant we’ve been working outdoors, as such I’ve started to become a lot more conscious of protecting my skin. I ordered this to tray and add that extra level of protection for whenever I’m out and about. The top is comfy, fits great (I’m 5’11” and about 83kg and wear a M) and what I really like about it is how casual it looks whilst still allowing me to feel smart. A great light weight top that gives me some added protection, very happy with the product and the customer service yet again.

  16. William

    You always have to do better!

  17. Chris Skelhorn

    Having suffered from skin damage for years due to my obsession with sailing, this product range is a ‘gift from the gods’ – the clothing is really soft and cool and the gels just work. Well done guys!!!

  18. Andy

    Lightning quick, friendly and helpful response to email enquiry, despite being outside of normal working hours. Really nicely styled, well-made shirts

  19. Iain

    Good product good company ethos

  20. Melanie

    Excellent products, fast and efficient delivery and great customer service . The personal touch with the samples and the note gave me a sense of what a great company Life Jacket is and whilst the products are slightly more expensive, their quality speaks volumes for the justification.

  21. Jonathan

    Good quality products, prompt delivery.

  22. Steve Lyne

    For someone that has had many BCC, SCC & melanomas removed, I know I must have skin protection all year round. These shirts can be worn open or with full neck protection by good zip design and collar detail. Full length sleeves complete a well fitted shirt with a very soft feel that I thought so good I bought a second.

  23. Paul

    Quality products, creams / gels absorb well into the skin with no greasy residue. Active wear, quality fabric and comfortable to wear and exercise in with the added reassurance of having a high upf. Great to have a range aimed at men with the increasing figures of melanoma within males.

Skin science

A burning issue for men

Almost twice as many men die from skin cancer compared to women. Male skin cancer cases have exploded over the past 20 years and they’re forecast to double over the next 20 years.

It's chemistry

UVA rays penetrate your skin damaging the proteins that give your skin structure, causing ageing and wrinkling. UVB damages the outer skin causing sunburn. Together they're a cause of cancer.

Putting your jacket on

Real skincare should protect you from both harmful UVA and UVB rays. Rays touch your skin all year long, even in the winter. Apply skin protection all year round and stay healthy.
