Defend yourself against sun damage! Our friends at BloqUV have designed some fantastic clothing with the outdoor-loving TrailblazerGirl in mind. Enter a special fabric that they call Bloqtek. No UV protective chemicals are used, so your UV protection won’t wash out. Smart and also better for the environment! The fabric feels soft and cool to the touch, is quick drying, and moisture wicking – key features for a piece of activewear clothing. Armed with an Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) of 50, which blocks 98% of the sun’s harmful rays, the turtleneck we tested is super on its own or as a layering piece, and we appreciate that the elongated sleeves with thumbholes help protect our hands. Here are some important facts from leading health authorities: 85% of sunlight can reflect off of sand, concrete, water, and snow; up to 80% of UV rays can penetrate through clouds; and UV intensity increases about 4% for every 1000 feet you go up in elevation. Given all this, we’re sure you’ll agree that BloqUV clothing is an essential addition to your TrailblazerGirl wardrobe!
