UPF 50+ Active Tee

Rated 4.9 out of 5 stars
44 Reviews
Good skin health is 24/7 not just when you're out there doing it. This set has you covered all year round.
A moisture-wicking and fast-drying sports tee with inbuilt UPF 50+ protection.

Comfortable and lightweight tee designed to work as hard against sweat and strenuous activity as it is against the sun
Sports tee with a difference because when outside, you can feel safe knowing you're protected by the UPF 50+ fabric technology
A standard white cotton tee is the sunscreen equivalent of SPF 5. UV rays can still pass through cotton causing skin damage - for fabrics, the SPF equivalent is known as Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF)


Athletic fit - take the same size you typically take for sports tops

Made slightly longer in the arms for added protection when wearing short sleeves
Doesn't cling to your skin during exercise
Completely hassle-free alternative to sunscreen
Small embroidered LifeJacket shield logo on back of the neck
Unlike some other UPF products, our fabrics aren't chemically impregnated so you can be sure the protection lasts over and over, without washing out
Our bespoke and high-tech fabrics have been carefully selected, woven and UPF tested in every colour and model, meeting strict EU standards, and hitting the highest possible UPF 50+ rating


72% polyester, 16% elastane, 12% rayon

Machine washable (cold 30 degree cycle), do not tumble dry, hang to dry

Clothing only protects the areas it covers

UPF 50+ Active Tee S / Blue


Some of the reasons people love LifeJacket and keep buying this product.


Moisture-wicking and quick dry fabrics make this the ideal companion for an active outdoor activity because the tee won't cling to your skin while you put it through its paces.


Applying creams, gels and lotions to the skin isn't for everyone. And it comes off eventually, sometimes when you least want it to. This UPF 50+ tee blocks damaging rays as long as you're wearing for the ultimate in UV-blocking skin protection.


Our UPF 50+ fabrics are not chemically impregnated because this deteriorates over time through washing. We select very specific fibres and weaves that prevent, absorb and block 98% of the sun's rays from passing through the fabric so UV can't reach and damage your skin.

Developed with industry experts, our products are used by everyday folk (like us), professional athletes, Olympians and our team of epic brand ambassadors. Make LifeJacket an everyday essential for your long-term skin health.


Our story began with personal setback. We were three healthy young men, who thought we were indestructible. But then, several of our friends – all healthy and in their thirties, like us – were hit by cancer. One of them was Jono, our co-founder.

This inspired us to set-up LifeJacket with the single vision of halting the increase in skin cancer - THE world’s most common cancer and, unlike other cancers, one that’s 90% preventable. In the UK, rates have doubled since the 90s and they’re forecast to double again over the next 20 years.

LifeJacket is a positive brand inspiring people who love to be outdoors to use our kit, protect their skin and keep doing what they love. We believe in everyday protection as the best means of achieving long-term skin health and well-being.

Developed and made in the UK with industry experts, our high performance skincare and UPF 50+ apparel is stress-tested by everyday folk (like us), professional athletes, Olympians, military personnel and our team of brand ambassadors.


Where do you ship to?

We ship to the UK and Channel Islands using a Royal Mail tracked service and internationally using a selection of couriers (DPD, UPS, Fedex).

When will I get my order?

We try to get every order out the same day up until 4pm during the week. From then, please allow 2-3 business days for your order to arrive (UK) or up to 14 working days for international orders.

Who will be delivering my order and is there tracking?

We use a tracked service for nearly all of our deliveries. You will get an email from us when your order has been despatched which will include the tracking details.

What if I'm not in when my order is delivered?

The majority of our products fit through the average letter box. In the event your order doesn't, Royal Mail will leave a card letting you know they tried to deliver and what the next step is (either your order was left in a safe place or it has been returned to your local sorting office where it can either be collected, or a redelivery booked).

I haven't received my order yet, what should I do?

If 3 business days have passed since you placed your order and you still haven't received it, give us a shout and we will get it resolved.

How will my order be packed?

We will combine all items of your order to be packed as efficiently as possible. All the cardboard we use is FSC certified and all of our packaging is fully recyclable and/or compostable.

Is this clothing chemically treated to offer UPF protection?

Nope. All of our clothing offers the UPF50+ protection it does due to the natural properties of the fabrics we use. This means you can wear and wash it over and over again, safe in the knowledge it will continue to keep your skin protected and you comfortable.

Is this product cruelty free and vegan friendly?

Yes, it sure is.

How do your sizes compare to other brands?

We would say our sizing comes up true. Not tight/tapered and not oversized/baggy. If in any doubt check out the size guide towards the top of the page or give us a shout.

Can I return the product if I don't like it?

The last thing we want is for you to be unhappy with your order and any hard feelings. So providing it is returned to us in good/as new condition, we are happy to issue a full refund.

What is the LifeJacket mission?

Why is LifeJacket different?

We really are a mission-led brand trying to do something positive and challenging the conversation around good skin health.

No gimmicks, no misleading jargon or advertising, just honest and upfront facts based on science so you can protect your short, medium and long term skin health.

Oh, and some great products we are pretty proud of.

Who is LifeJacket for?

We're for anyone who wants to look after their skin and perhaps learn a little more about how to best achieve that. Whether you're a professional athlete, weekend warrior, dog walker, gardener or commuter, the science remains the same. Our products cater for every personal preference and environment, so it's just about finding what works for you.

Can I speak to someone?

We love nothing more than speaking to people and understanding the various preferences and motivations when it comes to skin health and UV protection. We also love to listen and learn, so if you had any questions, any feedback or any ideas, we would love to hear from you. Just give us a shout via social, our website or email and we'll take it from there.
