As a kid, I scoffed at sunscreen. Now I seek out intelligent sailing gear that comes loaded with an SPF rating (perhaps that’s the inner kid still hating to rub on the slippery stuff).

Sunday Afternoon’s Sun Tee shirt perfectly fits this bill. Not only does it have an SPF 50 rating, but its soft, meshlike fabric feels cool on a hot day, and it dries super-fast, even in humid environments where other SPF-rated materials falter. Be sure to check out Sunday Afternoon’s line of wide-brimmed sun hats and other cool (pun intended) products. $36.
