Water enthusiasts seem to have a love/hate relationship with the sun. We love fishing and swimming when the sun is shining, but we hate the damage it can cause. Nobody likes sunburn but we all love the sun.
For people who spend serious amounts of time on or around the water, it’s important to take precautions so that you don’t end up burned, or suffer any long term damage from exposure to the sun’s UVA and UVB rays. One of our favorite sun protection solutions is the SunGuard Fishing Mask Tube. It’s ideal for anglers, but anyone who spends time on the water will find it extremely useful and effective.

Made of UPF 50+ AquaPoly Microtfiber fabric, that breathes and wicks moisture, the SunGuard Tube will keep your head, neck, face and ears, dry, cool and protected all day long. Just slip it on and you’re ready to go.
Available in four “sky-ward” camo water print colors, the SunGuard Fishing Mask Tube is perfect for anglers who want blend in with their surroundings to have a better chance sneaking up on a fish. And for those who wear glasses and sunglasses, you’ll actually be able to breathe through the mask so your glasses won’t fog up.

A Comfortable Face Mask That Actually Fits
How well can a face mask protect you if it keeps falling off? We found that when it comes to face mask tubes, they all fit people differently. It’s hard to find one size that will accommodate everyone. So instead of offering only one size, we decided to offer five sizes to choose from, medium, large, and extra-large, that way you’ll be sure to find the right one that fits you and won’t fall off. A great fit is so important. The last thing we want you to do is buy a face mask that stays in your glove box due to improper fit.
The SunGuard Fishing Mask Tube protects your face, head, neck and ears from the sun, and it also provides anglers with an extra dose of water-friendly camo. It’s made of soft AquaPoly fabric that wicks moisture, breathes and provides UPF 50+ sun protection. Our user's report that it’s very easy to breathe through which greatly reduces glasses fogging. Four way stretch fabric with flatlock seams make it extremely comfortable to wear all day long. If you are in need of comfortable, versatile full face and head sun protection that actually fits, you need the SunGuard Fishing Mask Tube.

How to measure (if you don't know your hat size)
Wrap a tape measure (or a string which you can measure while laying flat against a ruler) around your head, just above your ear. Compare your measurement to the chart above. Because the four-way stretch fabric is forgiving, we suggest you select next size larger if your measurement is at or near the upper dimension.

UPF vs. SPF
UPF is an abbreviation for Ultraviolet Protection Factor. This rating system is used to measure the effectiveness of fabric to protect skin from harmful ultraviolet radiation. For example, a UPF rating of 40 will allow only 1/40th of the sun's harmful rays to penetrate the textile. A rating of 40 or higher is considered excellent, blocking 97 percent of both UVA and UVB rays.
SPF, typically associated with sunscreen, is short for Sun Protection Factor. This measurement determines the length of time it takes for redness to occur as result of sun exposure. If applied correctly, a sunscreen rated at SPF 15 will protect 15 times longer than unprotected skin. This amounts to approximately 93 percent of UVB rays. Some experts believe that no sunscreen should be expected to stay effective longer than two hours without reapplication. Sunscreen that blocks UVA and UVB radiation is preferred.
UVA and UVB
Simply stated, UVA exposure contributes to premature aging by damaging the skin's elasticity. Perhaps 90 percent of wrinkles, age spots, and visible signs of aging occur as result of the sun's harmful UVA rays which penetrates the skin more deeply. The carcinogenic effects of UVB rays are believed to cause tanning which is the skin's natural defense against the sun. Unfortunately, it is believed that UVB contributes to the development of skin cancer.
