UPF vs SPF 50+ Ultraviolet Protection Factor vs Sun Protection Factor (UPF)Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) is a rating system used for apparel. In terms of sun protection, fabric is graded on a scale (UPF). This measures the transmission of light/radiation through the fibers of a fabric or cloth. 50+ is the highest rating and would allow less than 97.5 % of UV radiation.UVA/UVB or UV Resistivity is a different metric that represents the ability of a fabric to resist fading due to exposure (sun bleaching). This can be tested by using the ASTM standard of a transmission test, laundered forty times then exposed to 100 hrs of UV light then tested a second time. The variance of colors makes it hard to estimate the UPF without a scientific test where UV light is transmitted through the fabric and measured by a radiation measuring instrument like a pectrophotometer or the use of a spectroradiometer. Both polyester and nylon do a great job disrupting Ultraviolet light. This is beccause there are hydrogen and carbon based benzene rings within the polymer before it is extruded into a fiber for fabric. The treatment is a chemical UV absorber (either in polymer of extruded fiber or as a finish on exterior of a textile) that prevent the UVA and UVB rays from reaching your skin. Natural fibers are less effective at blocking the damage of ultraviolet light. Highly protective clothing have these qualities:
  • tight woven fabric like microfiber
  • usually darker in color, not usually white
  • chemically treated with UV absorber
Sun Protection Factor (SPF) Usually related to sunscreens. The SPF factor is a measure of the time it would take for your skin to get sunburned. Sunscreen lotions are graded on a completely different scale (SPF) and doesn't correlate directly to the UPF. You would need to compare the actual percentages of light/radiation transmitted. Also, The percentage of burning UV rays that a lotion/cream product blocks does not increase proportionally with the SPF value. Sunscreens with higher SPF ratings block slightly more UVB rays, but none offers 100% protection.The "protectiveness" of clothing can also be measured by SPF. The following are SPF's of various types of clothing:
  • Nylon Stockings - SPF 2
  • Hats - SPF 3-6
  • Summer-weight clothing - SPF 6.5
  • Sun-protective clothing - up to SPF 30

    plain UV protection fabric

    water repellant50+ Ultraviolet Sun Protection Factor (UPF)

    This fabric does an excellent job at the disruption of ultraviolet light. The fabric is woven with advanced nylon micro fibers that have a hydrogen and carbon based benzene ring in the polymer. The fibers are extruded and coated before being spun into yarns.All fabrics will protect from the sun's UV radiation to some extent. The type of fabric that does the best job at blocking harmful sun rays will carry a Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) rating from 15 (good) to 50+(excellent).

    Wetness: The desire to keep out the sun's UV rays is reduced by wetness on the fabric. A wet fabric may cause the sun blocking to be reduced by up to half its effectiveness as dry. Keeping the fabric dry is enhanced by the durable water resistant finish. The DWR finish creates a fabric that is lightweight and hydrophobic. The dense, tight woven microfibers minimize the space between yarns. This reduces the amount of UV light that can pass through which leads to the 50 UPV score.

Durable Water Repellent Finish (DWR)

This textile fabric has a DWR finish on the individual fibers that make the material hydrophobic which means it stays dry in moist conditions. The extruded microfibers are treated before being spun into yard. The coated fibers are then woven into the plaid fabric. The DWR coating does not reduce or affect the breath-ability of the technical fabric because the woven fibers have a space between them for breath-ability. To test the effectiveness of a DWR finish, you can pour some water onto the garment and see how much water is sticking to the fabric. The quality testing for this finish is superior up to 50 washings. Repeated laundering eventually will diminish the effectiveness of the DWR.

    Runs small

    Published by Dave on Sep 15th 2016

    Many reviews of other clothing say that the shirts are too big.
    This particular shirt runs small. I'll probably give mine to one of my thinner friends.
    Good looking. Goofy zippers on the pockets.
    I'd wear it if it fit.

    My favorite workshirt

    Published by Kieran Sikdar on Aug 19th 2016

    I do a lot of work outside and commute to work by bike. I love wearing this shirt in the field or going to a meeting with professionals. It can work for both! Super light, durable and looks great. For those with long arms, it's perfect. One of the few shirts that fits my 6'5" wingspan.

    Cool shirt w/real poxket appeal

    Published by Tswarts on Apr 7th 2015

    Great color; colleagues lik eplaying with zippers on pockets; rear pocket is great add-on. Ordered long as most shirts are too short; probably didn't need long here except it will absolutely stay tucked in even on my bike. Plan to ask Santa for another.

    Off bike use

    Published by Itski on Apr 7th 2015

    To tell the truth I most likely will not use this shirt for biking - I don't commute to a job so I wear jerseys when I ride. I bought this because it looked like it would be very good for working outdoors in the AZ sun and heat with its UV protection long sleeves to avoid using sun screen roll up button sleeves for in the shade a vented back for the heat and good jersey type pockets for ju

    Very good commuting shirt

    Published by Anto on Apr 7th 2015

    I took a chance and bought three of the tall shirts. Very happy with the purchase they're comfortable breathable (my first time biking to work in a shirt and getting there dry!) they don't wrinkle and you can't guess they're synthetics unless you touch them. The length is perfect for 6'8 tall me.||Minor gripes: the buttons pop off easily and one of the shirts had a small defect (no button on th

    Great Material terrible fit finish

    Published by 86SchwinnLeTour on Apr 7th 2015

    I ordered a 2xl tall size and it seemed to fit like a medium shirt. I realize cycling gear fits more snugly but I have ordered this size from this company before and have good results. If there was such a disparity in fit should have been noted. It also appears that the button closures were not very well thought out and/or tested. Even while not wearing the shirt the buttons slipped effortlessly
