Long Sleeve Sun Shirts

Rayward Long Sleeve Sun Shirts

Long Sleeve Sun Shirts are the go-to option for everyday sun protection. A sun shirt differs from a standard shirt in the fact that it’s UPF certified. This ensures you are protected from UV radiation. Here at Rayward Apparel we have a few great options to ensure you stay protected AND comfortable. Even in hot weather, a long sleeve shirt can be the perfect beach shirt for women and men to help keep you cool in the heat.

What Constitutes A "Sun Shirt"

Don’t be fooled by other companies calling their products “sun shirts” – always check to make sure it’s UPF certified. There’s a big difference between being designed to be worn in the sun and being designed to protect you from the sun. Thankfully, ours are designed for both! 

Below are our two most popular collections of sun shirts, which each include long sleeve variations:

The Shoreline Collection is our go-to beach shirt for women and men. It’s certified at UPF 50+, so you can stay protected without sacrificing comfort. Because it’s a relaxed fit, we wouldn’t consider it to be a rash guard shirt. However, it still provides many of the same benefits of a rash guard: It’s moisture wicking, dries extremely fast, and it’s breathable making it perfect for any outdoor adventure. Additionally, this shirt is also great for any outdoor exercise, especially in the heat. This long sleeve sun shirt will quickly replace any rash guard shirts in your wardrobe and become your go-to for any hot summer days – regardless of the activity.

Men's Red Long Sleeve Sun Shirt
The Shoreline Collection, Scarlet Red Color
Women's Green Long Sleeve Sun Shirt
The Crescent City Collection, Mint Green Color

Named after our hometown and headquarters in New Orleans, the Crescent City collection is more of an ‘everyday’ long sleeve sun shirt. Its tri-blend fabric of bamboo, cotton, and spandex makes for an unbelievably soft and comfortable shirt – one you’d want to wear everyday. Additionally, it’s certified at UPF 45, providing an excellent level of UV protection. Although not quite as lightweight as the Shoreline Collection, it’s still very comfortable in the heat and can be utilized as a beach shirt or thrown on before your next big fishing trip to stay comfortable and protected.

More Sleeve = More Protection

Each of the collections includes both short sleeve and long sleeve sun shirts. Because a short sleeve sun shirt has less coverage, it won’t be quite as protective. However, regardless of which you choose, the construction and UPF certification is the same. Here at Rayward we always recommend a long sleeve shirt when outdoors. However, if you decide to go with a short sleeve option please make sure you have enough sunscreen. You need enough to cover your arms in addition to your face, neck, and any other exposed areas.

So regardless if you are looking for a rash guard, beach shirt, or just something comfortable to get you through a long day outdoors – we have you covered. For more information on any specific product please check out our shop.
