UPF 50+ long-sleeve collared tee
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)
- OTHER IMPORTANT STUFF
- 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

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.
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.
