Coolibar ZnO Tropical Weight Quarter Zip Shirt Review

47 Flares 47 Flares ×

I have now ordered a couple of items from Coolibarand I’m never disappointed in the quality and feel of them. They offer far more for their dollar than the average product. Their products come with UPF protection!

This time I ordered a ZnO Tropical Weight Quarter Zip Shirt. Just like the jacket I ordered previously, this top comes with a UPF 50+ sun protection. It has a slight stretch and will be perfect for wearing around the house now and outside once the days warm up.

Coolibar ReviewsI am excited to see if it provides the same affect as my jacket did. Last summer Randy and I were standing on cement decking watching power boat races. I had thrown my jacket in the car because I didn’t know if I would be too cool on the water. We definitely weren’t too cool, rather much too hot. I put the jacket on hoping for maybe some protection from the sun.

Imagine my surprise when I immediately felt cooler. It was because the fabric blocked 98% of the sun’s UVA. The rays could not penetrate through to my arms. Everyone else around me was roasting, but I was comfortable.

Coolibar is recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation and approved by the Melanoma International Foundation. Their products are tested in an independent laboratory. The Zinc Oxide (ZnO) can’t be absorbed by the skin, and can’t wear or wash off.

I would recommend Coolibar’s products to anyone who is out in the sun. Not only for the dermatological protection they provide, but also for their sheer comfort.

Products were provided. No compensation was received. The honest opinions are my own.
