Just in time for Father’s Day, Christopher Lewis, the Dad of Divas Blog Founder, reviews Coolibar’s latest UPF 50+ fabric innovation created for men – ZnO pro. ZnO pro SUNTECT® blends cotton with a moisture-wicking polyester fiber to improve performance in hot, humid conditions where the propensity to sweat is high.
I was lucky enough to try out the new Coolibar ZnO Pro Quarter Zip Polo. I am always looking for clothes that look great but also protect. Especially after a fire that we had in my home in February and the ensuing hospitalization over Valentine’s Day, I have found that I have to cover my left arm and the skin that I burned even more than usual.
With this being said it has become even more important for me to find clothes that give me that extra protection no matter what the weather and Coolibar clothing does just that.
The shirt itself was so comfortable and it breathes making it comfortable to wear even on warmer days. I wore it the other day when it was in the mid-70′s and I did not feel overheated. The shirt does an amazing job at allowing the air to circulate while still protecting my skin.
I have worn it a few times already, both in family outings as well as to dinner with friends. The shirt is more of a business casual shirt, but I feel comfortable in wearing it in casual situations as well. It looks good and trendy, while at the same time it goes with many different types of pants as well. I am impressed with how well this shirt has gone with everything that I have worn thus far. On top of this though is the UPF 50+ rating that will protect me from the harmful sun rays, which is exactly what I am looking for!
All-in-all, if you are looking for a shirt that will not only protect you from the sun’s harmful rays, but is comfortable in the heat of the summer, this is definitely the shirt to pick up. On top of this, if you are looking for a lightweight shirt that is durable, the fabric used will definitely hold up for many years to come too!
