We recently launched our first product line of sun protective bamboo shirts – the SUN BOUND Collection. But what makes this line of sun shirts so unique?
While we only recently officially launched the SUN BOUND collection, it’s been months in the making. Creating a high performing shirt that also achieves a high UV Protection rating (UPF) requires a very specific fiber blend. It must be lightweight and breathable to handle the heat, but also protective enough to protect against harmful UV rays. After prototyping dozens of shirts and fiber blends from suppliers around the world, we’re proudly releasing the SUN BOUND Collection. The collection includes three styles of shirts, available in both men’s and women’s sizes: Short sleeve, long sleeve, and hooded.
Performance AND Protection
The SUN BOUND collection is more than just a high quality UPF 50 shirt, but it’s built to perform. These shirts are built for athletes, but comfortable and stylish enough for the casual wearer. Our unique blend of cotton, viscose from bamboo, and lycra create a lightweight and moisture wicking shirt any athlete would love, while providing a UPF protection rating any mom would approve of. While there may be other UPF 50 shirts out there that provide sufficient sun protection, there are very few that would be suitable for training. The SUN BOUND collection accomplishes both.
You don’t have to be an athlete to fall in love with this collection. Not only is it one of the softest shirts you’ll ever wear, but we’ve designed every element of the shirt to make it as comfortable as possible. This includes, but is not limited to:
- Tailored athletic fit to ensure it’s not too loose and not to tight
- Raglan sleeves for better movement with thumb loops stitched inside of the long sleeves to keep your arms protected regardless of your activity
- Single layered fabric hood to provide substantial sun protection without overheating
- Tag-free collar
These shirts are made to last. While lightweight and breathable, our blend of fibers is durable and strong enough to withstand the toughest conditions. In addition to developing an extremely durable fabric, we reinforce all our seams to prevent any tears or splitting. Also, you can rest assured with our hassle-free returns & exchanges policy – If you are not entirely satisfied with your order we offer a free exchange or refund for the full cost of your returned items.
A portion of all purchases of the SUN BOUND collection (and all other products we sell now or in the future) will be donated to charities with a vision similar to ours to help treat and prevent skin cancer. For more details on the foundations we support and our charitable donations, click here.
