    Here's an odd question. What do you guys use for sun protection in the way of clothing? I have been considering military desert style BDU shirts. I have been noticing a lot of older people with scars from having skin cancer pulled out of them. I use sun block but being the Irish German mutt that I am, there is a good chance I will never see a tan again. Any other ideas?

    I normally wear a large straw hat, spf 15 and up, I wear the breathable athletic shirts in the summer. I probably should wear more sun protection.

    I bought some of these.

    They are fishing shirts but they can embroider your company name on them. Have flip up collar for back of neck and are UV coated. Sizes run big.

    I don't wear near enough sun protection. I used to like to see how dark I could get in the summer, but now, well I am not real keen on someone taking a pound of malignant skin off my hide. Spf 40 and a large hat this year.

    I use 5.11 tactical clothing. I really like the Tac Lite series. It is well vented, wicks well and loose fitting. You can check it out:

    We wear lifeguard straw hats with large brims. They ventilate well and keep the sun off your neck
