Destination Holiday Must Have: Protective Active Wear

Whether you have active sports loving kids or are looking forward to a destination holiday getaway to a welcoming tropical beach, concerns about keeping your family safe in the sun weighs heavily on parent's minds.   No doubt you have some form of sun protection stocked in the sports bags or suitcase, but have you considered looking into sun protective clothing?

As a mother, I make certain I have all the winter essentials on hand to keep my family save from the bitter weather's bite, however after considering this important question, I quickly realized I was missing an easy solution to protect my children's skin from sun damage.  With a teen and tween in the house, although one might expect quite the opposite, I have found their concern and cooperation with apply sunscreen has waned with their years.  A wonderful solution?  Coolibar Sun Protection Active Wear.

Although I was already familiar with the availability of protective swim shirts and swim wear, I had not ever thought to explore the possibility of protective active wear and was pleased to find such a wide selection for the whole family available at Coolibar.  Attire suitable for dining out, relaxing on the beach and for outdoor fun and exercise

Thinking ahead to lacrosse season starting in just a couple short months, I thought a light jacket would be a great start to exploring the Coolibar collections.  Creative to be a protective yet practical asset for the active,  the ZnO Tropical Weight Quarter Zip Jacket was an easy selection.  With Coolibar's UPF 50+ protection textile technology, this jacket would serve my daughter well both on conditioning runs and on the field.

Breathable, flexible and stylish.  My daughter loved the fit of the jacket immediately.  With four colors to select from, Berry, Navy, Black and Coal, this jacket is sharp and attractive, with contrasting neck and zip line detailing.  Soft, comfortable fabric, created with ZnO SUNTECT® technology, this piece is cared for with machine washing without fear of losing the protective factor.

The latest technology in sun protective fabrics! ZnO SUNTECT® embeds millions of tiny particles of zinc oxide into every fiber. This is the same ingredient that is used to block UVA & UVB in better sunscreens and to treat mild skin irritations and burns. These ZnO particles cannot wash or wear out and will provide healthful benefits for the life of the garment. 


Comfortable Women's Active Wear, Protective Destination Holiday Apparel

As taken with this jacket as my daughter is, we have certainly put it to the test.  We've found it to hold up well to several washings, color steady and with no sign of pilling or wear in the light fabric.  Having passed the Teen Diva's stringent scrutiny, I am certain I will be looking to Coolibar for additional protection apparel choices for the entire family.

ZnO Polo Dress is what I like.
I like it because it seems to be the perfect light dress to wear in the summer yet keep me covered. I come from a very fair skinned Irish family where some have had skin cancer. Looks like the perfect dress to start wearing towards the end of spring and all through the summer.

I like the style of the Adventure Hat, we camp and hike quite a bit and I get tired of the old baseball cap, I didn't know there was a hat that was packable to throw in my backpack. It's waterproof, and will float if I lose it when I tip over the canoe.

I like the sun sleeves. Often while traveling I will get one tan arm and one white arm from the sun exposure on my arm while driving. It'd be nice to protect my arm from the UVs while in the car.
