Lululemon offers a variety of sports performance clothes with UPF 50 sun protection. Two of those items are the Water Bound Hoodie & the Sun Blocker Pullover.
I have used both of these items for various sun soaked activities such as being on a boat, walking all day at an amusement park, hiking & running. Here’s my perspective of what each has to offer.
The Sun Blocker Pullover has a stretchy feeling material. It is very soft and lightweight. There are thumbholes so your hands are shielded from the sun. It is sweat wicking but I found it took a little while to dry. It is comfortable to wear all day. I am very happy with this top and will continue to use it for activities such as amusement park walking, at the beach, running, & hiking.
The Water Bound Hoodie feels a little like swimwear material. It is lightweight and had the thumbholes. I found it to be quick drying after getting wet from being on a boat or sweat. I will continue to use it for activities in the sun and water such as on a boat or the beach. It really is a great shirt for water activities.
Both items have a hood, which is perfect to keep the sun off your head, neck & face. The UPF gives you confidence to be out in the sun and not worrying about damaging your skin or causing a risk for skin cancer. I highly recommend trying either of these shirts for activities out in the sun. They are the first UPF shirts I have found to be comfortable to wear.
I purchased these items personally and was not asked to write this review or compensated in any way. All opinions expressed are my own from using the items.
