Sun Protective Clothing for Driving

Got so burnt in early June – in a coupe too – that I realized I can no longer drive without special protective UV clothing.  So I investigated.

Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) rating – 15 is good, but 50+ is what you want. And turns out China is really into this idea of protective-driving-clothing.

Read it online at Autonet.

Favourite line:

Use the search term “summer driving clothing” and click on results from DHGate or AliExpress, two of China’s largest online retailers. Below are “arm mittens.”

I’m going to order the above hat, gloves and shawl, really.

(update: I now own the hat)
