How to choose your UV protection T-shirt (Part 1)
All of our UV-resistant T-shirts are UPF 50+, i.e. they have the maximum level of sun protection.
The choice between them will therefore be made based on the length of the sleeves and will depend on what it will be used for. The constraints are greatest for surfing so we decided to build our range primarily for surfing.
For surfing, the choice will be made according to the duration of your sessions: 1 hour, 2 hours or 3 hours.
How to choose your UV protection T-shirt (Part 2: According to the duration of the session)
1 hour: Occasional practice. You can choose between a loose fit (priority to ease of dressing and comfort when dry) or a fitted cut (priority to comfort when wet). A loop system to connect it to the shorts ensures the stability of the product.
2 hours: Regular practice. Comfort when wet is enhanced by the seamless panels under the arms and the drawstring which further increases stability.
3 hours: Intensive practice. Additional warmth to help you stay in the water for longer.
Warmth and wind
The minimum water temperature recommended for the use of this UV-protection T-shirt is 22°C if it is worn on its own. Max. session length: 3 hours. This top has neoprene on the front and back to provide warmth even in windy conditions.
This top can also be worn under a wetsuit.
The neothermal top is made of fleece textile and neoprene to ensure better thermal insulation.
The neoprene is lined with polyester fabric for added resistance to wear.
Neoprene thickness: 1.5 mm. Neoprene is a closed-cell polychloroprene elastomeric foam with trapped nitrogen bubbles that have insulating properties.
We test and guarantee the thermal quality of our neoprene materials.
UV protection even when wet.
The fabric of this OLAIAN UV-resistant product blocks at least 98% of UVB radiation and 95% of UVA (UPF 50+).This guarantees effective protection from the sun.It can be used both in and out of the water, for water or nautical sports. The UV rays are filtered by the density of the textile fibres. Long-lasting protection, even after washing. The fleece inserts contain elastane which may deteriorate in chlorinated water.
What does UPF 50+ mean?
UPF is a sun protection factor (Ultra Violet Protection Factor) and is standardized worldwide.
It defines the protection level of a fabric and more precisely the proportion of UV rays it lets through. To meet the standards, it must block at least 95 % of UV rays. UPF 50+ means that the fabric blocks at least 95% of UVB and 98% of UVA rays.
This neothermal top helps limit rubbing and chafing due to contact with the surfboard or bodyboard. It can also be used under a wetsuit to limit chafing, particularly around the neck and armpits. We have added seamless panels under the arms to limit irritation due to paddling movements. Our test protocols confirmed that irritation was indeed limited during three-hour sessions.
The polyester fleece textile is naturally quick drying. An additional water-repellent treatment prevents water absorption to limit shivering in case of wind.It also makes drying easier. The effects of this treatment will decrease after 5 or 6 machine washes; therefore to increase the life of the treatment, use a clear water rinse instead of washing with detergent.
Multi water sports UV protection T-shirt
Our UV tops are designed to meet the needs of the most demanding surfers.
Our design choices also make them compatible with other water sports such as swimming, kitesurfing, windsurfing, wakeboarding, water skiing, sea wading or SUP (stand up paddle boarding).
Behaviour when in the sun
Although this T-shirt provides protection from the sun, phenomena such as reflections (from the water, sand, etc.), heat, time of day, etc., must be taken into account. Wearing this T-shirt does not exempt the wearer from adopting suitable behaviour: wear sunglasses, wear a hat or cap, regularly apply an appropriate sunscreen, drink regularly, etc.
