We all love spending time outdoors, on the water and in the sun - but it's important to protect ourselves from the sun at all times.

According to Cancer Council Australia - "Australia is the skin cancer capital of the world. More than 11,500 Australian men and women are diagnosed with a melanoma each year, and an estimated 434,000 people are treated for one or more skin cancers. Skin cancer accounts for over 80% of all new cases of cancer diagnosed in Australia each year.

When it comes to skin cancer, a major risk factor is prolonged exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation. It's important to protect ourselves from UVA rays - associated with skin aging, and UVB rays - associated with skin burning. 

Check out our range of products designed to protect you from the sun's harmful rays.

Our Quick Dry Long Sleeve Zip Polo is made with specially formulated MYNX® UV yarn, offering permanent sun protection up to 50+ UPF rating and maintains a 100% UPF rating whether it's wet or dry. The technology is woven into the yarn - which means the protection will never wash off.

  • Permanent sun protection up to 50+ UPF rating
  • Provides protection against UVA(aging) & UVB(burning) rays


We understand the importance of providing our customers with the highest level of UV protection and all of our hats feature an extra wide brim to protect your neck, face and ears. There's also a stiffened front peak to stop the brim from flopping in the wind or when wet.
