Zhik launches UVActive shirts as protection against sun
Australian brand Zhik has launched a new UVActive range of shirts for summer boating.
The UVActive fabric is said to block out 99.5% of UVA and UVB even when the tops are wet. These significantly high results are measured under the US AATCC-183-2004 standards (Determination of the UVR Transmission of Dry Textile) and the Australian/New Zealand standard (AS/NZS-4399:201) for sun protective clothing.
Available in long sleeve and short sleeve, using a fine gauge, soft interlock weave, the fabric is highly durable, snag resistant and antistatic.
Ideal for boating and performance activity, as well as sun protection, they are breathable with excellent moisture wicking properties readily moving moisture away from the skin and the fabric dries quickly.
The tops retail from £39.95.
