The combination elastane/polymide fabric provides a snug athletic fit over the user's body. The fabric also provides a UPF50+ sun protection rating. The fabric seams are sewn together by flat stitching to protect the user against chafing.
Comfort/fit - The snug but athletic fit of this top is one of it's best features. It fits close to the body which works extremely well under a PFD or other drytop layers. It feels comfortable on and the flat seams prevents any chafing. I love wearing it!
UV Protection - One of the best shirts I have ever owned for sun protection. In 2017 I primarily used this shirt on whitewater rivers but on a 2018 trip I used it on Georgian Bay, a large body of open water. I was on the only one with a longsleeve UPF top and the only one that didn't get sunburned. Even in hot weather the shirt doesn't feel hot and I would highly recommmend it for summer paddling of all kinds.
Style- This Level Six top comes in a variety of colour combinations that are both eye catching and coolio. I have a 2017 top, but I love the 2018 colours as well. I have received many compliments and jealous looks from other paddlers!
The darker blue areas of my shirt have faded slightly over the past two summers of use. The difference is noticeable to me but isn't to others. It's just a sign the top has been used - and used a lot! I may need to get another one!
Best Uses: Watersports of any kind!
