Care instructions

Storage Tips
Store the Water T-shirt in its pouch


Protection from UV - PROFILTER
The knit of the TRIBORD UV-resistant product blocks at least 98% of UVB radiation and 95% of UVA (UPF 50+). With respect to the EN-13758-2 standard, this guarantees effective protection from the sun. It can be used both in and out of the water, for water or nautical sports. The direct integration of ceramic particles in the fibre of the product provides durable protection with time, even after washing.
Quick drying
The polyester textile naturally allows rapid drying after being in the water. Additional water-repellent treatment prevents water absorption to limit shivering if wind is present. Drying is also facilitated. The effects of this treatment will wear off after 5 or 6 machine washes, so to increase the lifetime of the treatment, it is preferable to rinse in fresh water rather than wash with detergent.
Behaviour in the sun
Although this T-shirt allows protection from the sun, phenomena such as reflections (from the water, sand, etc.), heat, time of day, etc., must be taken into account. When you wear this T-shirt, you must follow the relevant conduct: sunglasses, hat or cap, regular application of adapted sun cream, drinking regularly, etc.
What does UPF 50+ mean?
UPF is a sun protection factor (Ultra Violet Protection Factor) and is standardised worldwide. It defines the protection level of a fabric and more precisely the proportion of UV rays it lets through. To meet the standards, it must block at least 95% of UV rays. UPF 50+ means that the fabric blocks at least 95% of UVB and 98% of UVA rays.
Sand-proof component
The product's knit reduces the retention of sand in the fabric.
Loose fit
This UV-resistant T-shirt has a loose cut to provide good ease of dressing. If you benefit from better comfort when moving particularly to limit irritation, it is preferred to use a more close-fitting model.
Support system
This Tribord UV-resistant T-shirt has a front loop so that you can thread the swimsuit cord for better maintenance when exercising.

    Great in Tobago
    No more sun burn, while not too hot! some yellow (sunscreen?) stripes on the shirt

    I borrowed this shirt from my sister after a sunburn in Tobago and I only brought a full suit with me. It was very convenient and I was very happy to be able to use it. The only problem we had with it, is some yellow stripes on it, we suspect from using sun screen while wearing the shirt. My sister took it home to wash and I haven't heard whether the stripes are still there, but for this price, I will gladly buy her a new shirt and myself one as well while I am at it!
