Boat Clothes For Woman
Not all clothing gives you protection from the sun.
Boat Bitch's philosophy is based on innovation. Boat Bitch Apparel is committed to creating boat clothes for woman that matter in modern styles that are easy to move, exercise and have fun. We believe in an active and outdoor lifestyle.
Our fabrics are industry leaders in performance, including lightweight, soft, breathable and stretch. Each fabric is specifically designed to be used for an outdoor activity or function. Our fabrics for snorkeling and swimming are resistant to chlorine and saltwater and can be dried quickly.
Sun-protective fabric in boat clothes for woman.
Our fabrics for our woman's sailing clothes have UPF 50+ thanks to technical innovation and independent third-party testing. Fabrics are a mix of weave (tighter is more), color, weight, and the additions of sunscreens, millions, of the sun-bouncing mineral, titanium dioxide, and zinc oxide at the fiber or fabric levels. Our sun protection is durable, even after multiple washes and exposures to chlorine, salt and sweat.
SPF is not something we use. Fabric has UPF. Lotion has SPF.
Clothing brands that claim to have SPF protection on their womans boat clothing are not correct. SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. It measures how long it takes for sun-exposed skin to turn red from UVB ("burning") radiation. UPF, which is a broad-spectrum UVA/UVB measure for fabric, rates how much UV radiation penetrates fabric and reaches skin. A garment with UPF 50 allows only 1/50th the UV radiation that falls on its surface to pass through it. It blocks 49/50ths, or 98%, of the UV radiation. SPF is not a full spectrum protection.
