UPF 50+ Sun Bandana

I love this UPF 50+ Sun Bandana because it keeps the sun off the back of my neck. When I can’t or don’t want to wear a Sun Protection Shirt Hoodie this UPF 50+ Sun Bandana is the perfect addition to any outside outfit.

I keep a Sun Bandana in my pocket when I’m hiking. When the sun comes up I wear wrap my Sun Bandana around my neck so I don’t end up with a burn on the back of my neck after a long day’s hiking. There is not quicker way to ruin a trip than being burnt and uncomfortable.

This Sun Bandana is also perfect for napping. I drape it over my eyes and face to not just block out the light, but also to keep me from burning.

When it comes to surviving in warm weather I prefer a multi layered strategy. Suntan lotion is great, but it wear out. There is also the risk that in a prolonged natural disaster or even just a long hiking trip, you won’t be able to resupply. Having backup sun protection that doesn’t wear off is critical to warm weather survival.

UPF 50+ Sun Bandana Scoring

When it comes to protecting yourself from the elements, this UPF 50+ Sun Bandana is just what you need regardless of the season. Sure, the summer sun may be the more obvious threat, but if you are hiking cross country in the winter, the sun is still just as dangerous. Because this Sun Bandana can improve your survival based on the situation, it is scoring a 405/1000.
