Sun Protection

Sun Protection:

Protecting yourself from the sun is crucial when hiking to prevent sunburn and long-term skin damage. Here are some sun protection options to consider:


  • Grab a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher.
  • Slather that goodness on every inch of exposed skin, including your face, neck, ears, and the back of your hands.
  • Reapply every couple of hours, especially if you're sweating or swimming.

Sun-Protective Clothing:

  • Where style meets functionality: lightweight, long-sleeved shirts and long pants made of UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) fabric.
  • Find the Balance: look for clothing that covers as much skin as possible without turning into a walking sauna.

Wide-brimmed Hat:

  • Wear a hat with an ultra wide brim to shade your face, neck, and ears.
  • Consider a hat with built-in UPF for double protection.


  • Protect your eyes from UV rays with sunglasses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays.
  • Make sure they wrap around for full coverage. Style and protection!

Seek Shade:

  • Seek refuge in shaded areas, especially during peak sunlight hours (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.).
  • Rest in shaded areas during breaks.


  • Water, water, water! Dehydration can make you more susceptible to sun-related illnesses. Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated.
  • Throw in some electrolytes, especially if you’re tearing it up in hot climates.

Sun Umbrella:

  • If you're hiking in an area with little natural shade, pack a portable sun umbrella for additional protection. If hiking with a child, look for sun shades on baby carriers.

Sun Sleeves and Leg Sleeves:

  • These are lightweight sleeves that provide additional protection for your arms and legs while allowing air circulation.

Sunscreen Lip Balm:

  • Protect your lips with a lip balm that contains SPF.

Plan Your Hike:

  • Timing is everything. Be smart when planning your hikes..
  • Go early or go late to dodge the peak sun hours. Your skin will thank you, and you’ll catch an epic sunrise or sunset as a bonus.

Remember, it's about staying cool and enjoying the hike. Tailor your sun protection according to elevation, terrain, and weather. Reapply that sunscreen, stay hydrated, and soak in the adventure responsibly.
