Rash Guards: The Long and Short of it

Sun safety is always important, but during the summer months when the sun is a little harsher — and we spend more time outside — we need to protect ourselves and our kids even more. One of the best ways to protect our kids is to cover large areas of skin with protective clothing. How do we do that comfortably and properly while still being able to enjoy our summer water activities? Rash guards.

Rash guards are amazing long or short sleeved shirts that cover the skin and can protect from UVA and UVB rays during long hours out in the sun. Unlike sunblock it doesn’t need to be reapplied and can protect all day long. It is comfortable to wear in the sun since it breathes, and it is comfortable to wear in the water.

The Boy’s Store carries several different types of rash guards to help protect your boys during their favorite water activities.

No matter which option you choose be sure to continue to sunblock any part of skin still visible to the suns rays for ultimate protection.

Summer Headwear at The Boy’s Store

Summer means lots of time outdoors. Therefore if your kids are as sun-sensitive as mine you will want to be sure they are covered, literally! I spend a majority of the year slathering my kids in sunblock. Also covering their skin with UPF clothing. As well as making sure their little heads are covered too. We have a LOT of hats. My son is a hat-hater! He will pull it off the instant it is on his head. And take it off every single time you put it back on. So I have spent a lot of time looking for hats that are not too heavy, uncomfortable, or cumbersome to deal with all day long.

Flap Happy is a great brand because they are UPF 50+ protective clothing certified. They are lightweight, they are comfortable, and many come with straps to help keep them on young kids! The Boy’s Store carries several different styles of the Flap Happy hats, and many are so cute you will wish they made adult sizes.
