UV protection for water sports has become an entire market by itself. With the ozone layer in the Southern hemisphere disappearing, protecting yourself from UV has become a focus of people who enjoy the great outdoors "down under". Here in the Northern Hemisphere people are getting outdoors more and living longer. This combination has created a need for comfortable UV protective clothing for all age ranges. Cotton and most other natural fibers get damp and stay damp making the material uncomfortable and saggy. Today's synthetic fibers are nothing short of amazing. From the simplest 100% polyester wicking products (quite affordable) to very techy "smart fabrics" with poly or nylon and Lycra blends there is a UV protective product to fit the tightest budget or the most demanding performance athlete.

Compression fit basics- Compression fit products are those that as the name suggests fit snugly against the skin. They are usually made of a nylon Lycra blend of 80% nylon / 20% Lycra (also called elastane). Often called "rash guards", these are a great for on the field or in the water applications when the air and water are very warm (both 85' F+). If the water is warm but the air is below 80' F then a DryGuard™ is a better choice. Made of water repellent yet breathable nylon Lycra, the DryGuard will better protect you from wind and UV.

Arid Core Technology™ (ACT™):
DRYSHIRTs™ and DryGuards™

Just when the fabric pundits declared that there is "nothing new in the market" and all "Moisture management" products are pretty much the same, Arid Core Technology comes along and puts the market on it's ear. Like no other fabric available, Arid Core Technology™ takes technical apparel to the next level. Both water repellent and breathable this product has been described by many professional athletes as a "second skin". The Hawaii Ocean Safety Officers (Lifeguards) have adopted the DRYSHIRT™ as their official uniform for 2007 recognizing its superior comfort and protection form the harsh tropical sun and wind. The DryGuard™ gives the water borne safety officer better fit and comfort with a fast drying fabric once they exit the water. With a UPF factor of 50+ (equivalent to SPF 150+) no other product on the market gives you better protection from the sun while remaining so comfortable. The California State lifeguards and many other water safety agencies throughout the US and many tropical regions have switched to the Arid Core Technology products for 2007.

Arid Core Technology simply has no equal in the market. Effective as a base layer in severe conditions yet effective enough to be worn alone to protect from spray, wind and water the ACT™ products have to be worn to be fully understood. Do not compare this product with anything else on the market. It stands alone as a superior level of performance apparel when the conditions get inclement.
