UV BLOCKING – a UPF-50 rating that blocks 98% of the sun’s harmful UV rays. It is not a chemical treatment – it’s the mechanical quality of the yarn so the protection won’t diminish with washing. It’s especially important for our pink-skinned friends!
REDUCE HEAT ABSORPTION – our darker-coloured pals benefit from the heat-reflective shade these tees provide! We tested our black Lab, Luke, out in the sun with an infrared thermometer gun and found his fur was more than 40 degrees cooler under the tee than out!
EVAPORATIVE COOLING – Cool everybody down simply by getting the Tee wet! None of those heavy ice packs or gel inserts. Just a comfortable lightweight easy-moving tee that won’t get stinky (it’s antimicrobial).
If you are choosing between two sizes, we recommend you go down a size.
