Here at Coolibar, we talk a lot about healthy sunny living…and we’re good at it. We apply sunscreen, put on hats and wear Coolibar UPF 50+ clothing when we’re outdoors because we know the important role sun protection plays in skin health. We also know that skin health is just one aspect of a healthy balanced lifestyle.
Lucky for us, our leadership team also recognizes we need more than just healthy skin. So, to encourage overall health, Coolibar has teamed up with Lifetime Fitness, the Healthy Way of Life Company, to assist us in being healthy. Collectively we have a variety of goals: stress relief, weight loss, strength training, etc. and all hope to transform into healthier, happier individuals.
During our first Coolibar team fitness demonstration we ran, we sweat, we laughed but mostly we had a lot of fun. In fact, we forgot we were doing something good for ourselves (most of us anyway). We hope you do the same and not only make sun protection a part of your healthy lifestyle, but eat right, sleep and exercise too, as a healthy life is a happy life.
What a gift to receive my Coolibar clothing as I was packing for my two month trip to Europe to compete in the World’s Master’s Synchronized Swimming competition in Riccione, Italy and attend my friend’s daughter’s wedding in France. Needless to say, I couldn’t take everything with me as I was going to be traipsing through the train stations in Italy and the metro system in France, so I had to travel light.
While in Europe, I found I loved Coolibar hats! I wore the Santa Cruz Reversible Bucket Hat in navy and white as those are my team colors and I could accomplish being sun-protected as well as team identifiable!
I absolutely “lived” in the Sunblock Hoodie in bleached coral. The color went with so many of my other outfits that I wore it constantly. In the evening and afternoon I would tie it around my shoulders for additional warmth too. I love the fabric as it doesn’t wrinkle!
What activities did you partake in when wearing the shirt?
I wore my Sunblock Hoodie all over France for a whole month. It’s also a great cover up for the sun. When it isn’t needed it folds up very small and can be put in my purse or bag. I absolutely love it and am looking at the other colors it is offered in!
What are your favorite features?
I loved that it snaps easily if you want more sun protection during the day or warmth in the evening. No bulky buttons or zippers, just cute little snaps.
What are your overall thoughts on the fabric?
The fabric is amazing! It’s light yet protective, and also warm (versatile). It washes like a dream!
Did the fabric meet your expectations?
The fabric more than satisfied my expectations!
Did the fabric and shirt keep you cool?
The fabric kept me warm in the early morning, cool in the afternoon sun, and comfortable in the evening!
Did the fabric stick to your skin?
The fabric does not stick to the skin. It’s totally comfortable!
What do you want others to know about this shirt?
I would like your customers to know that this fabric is very comfortable, and breathable. I didn’t realize I had it on sometimes, it was that comfortable. Sometimes I needed to be a bit dressier than a tee-shirt and the Sunblock Hoodie looks smart and always fresh! I hope you can tell that I really loved it!
Thank you Coolibar,
P.S. Wanted to let everyone know I won two gold medals at the Worlds Masters championship in Italy!
