Is your sun protection working for you?


Even when stretched or after repeated washes, the tight weave of our fabric maintains its UPF 50+ protection. Really! We’ve had it tested by an independent lab right here in San Diego, and they said “…these are excellent fabrics – I even tried to stretch them to see if the UPF fell drastically, and it did not.”

Frequently Asked Questions

What is UPF50?

UPF 50 stands for Ultraviolet Protection Factor, and it is a measure of the effectiveness of a fabric in blocking ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun. The primary benefit of UPF 50 is the high level of sun protection it offers.

UPF 50+ indicates that our Chrome Dome Cap fabric is capable of blocking 98% of UVB rays and provides excellent protection against UVA rays as well. This high level of sun protection helps reduce the risk of sunburn, skin aging, and skin cancer caused by prolonged exposure to UV radiation.

Wearing hats with UPF 50 can significantly reduce the amount of UV radiation reaching the skin, minimizing the risk of sun damage. This is particularly important in preventing conditions like melanoma, the most serious type of skin cancer.

Our UPF50+ Chrome Dome Cap allow you to spend more time outdoors without the same level of concern about sun damage. This is especially beneficial for people with sensitive skin, children, or individuals who spend extended periods in the sun.

Does a UPF rating only apply to fabric?

It’s important to note that UPF ratings apply not only to clothing but also to other sun-protective items such as hats, sunglasses, and umbrellas. Choosing clothing with a UPF 50 rating is a proactive and effective measure to safeguard against the harmful effects of UV radiation from the sun.

Do I still need to wear sunscreen?

Yes! Chrome Dome Caps are an added benefit to your head, forehead, neck, and ears. Instead of relying solely on sunscreen, our UPF50+ caps provide a convenient and constant form of sun protection. It doesn’t wear off or need to be reapplied like sunscreen, making it a reliable option for outdoor activities for those specific parts of your body.

Remember that sun protection is important year-round, not just during the summer months. Consistent use of sun protection measures can help prevent sun damage and promote overall skin health. We highly recommend wearing sunscreen on the rest of your body.

Will the fabric of my Chrome Dome Cap get damaged by the sun?

No, our UPF-rated fabrics are designed to resist UV-induced damage, which can cause fading, weakening, or deterioration of the material over time. This helps maintain the integrity and durability of your Chrome Dome Cap.
