Best sun protection ever
"Since I bought this hat I no longer need to apply sunscreen to the top of ears or back of the neck. I wear this when doing gardening and I'm not left with that yucky sticky feeling. I also wear this hat when I swim in the sea! Love love love it! 5 stars Solbari!"
Steve - Melbourne, Australia
So wearable with peace of mind
"Very happy with my top, lovely colour and breathable fabric. Washes up well and is easy care. The thumbholes are also a great idea. The top is great for travel or the day out. Excellent customer service, with quick delivery."
Julie - New South Wales, Australia
Fabulous UPF50+ sun protection
"This is the best polo shirt I've purchased in years. I've been impacted with skin cancer related issues on my arms and shoulder. Thankyou for your great service to the community."
Allie - Palm Beach, USA
Comfortable to wear, even on hot days
"The shirt keeps me cool even on hot days. The thumb-hole design also protects the backs of my hands when necessary. I've had a number compliments about how good it looks on me."
I'm more serious about sun safety as an adult, particularly so recently with my wife having received treatment for advanced melanoma (Stage 3C). Melanoma is the most common cancer affecting young people, which so many in my age group do not realise.
The damage that is caused today by the sun can never be undone, and a potential deep burn in the pursuit of the perfect tan is not worth risking future skin cancer. I recently had a skin cancer scare which reminded of this. On a very overdue skin check, the doctor discovered something which had all the hallmark signs of a melanoma.
I like to play lawn bowls, golf and other outdoor activities. I spent quite a bit of time in North Queensland and on the surf beaches in my younger days, with no understanding of the damage sun exposure will cause. I have lived in Queensland for most of my life and had never given sufficient care to the protection of my skin from sun exposure.
It wasn't until I retired and relocated to Queensland from Victoria that I discovered that yearly skin checks were important. Queensland has the highest rate of skin cancer in Australia. I was shocked to be diagnosed with a squamous cell cancer on my forearm and shortly after, a Basal Cell on my throat.
