UPF 50+ Active Tee

WHAT IS IT?
A moisture-wicking and fast-drying sports tee with inbuilt UPF 50+ protection

WHY’S IT FOR YOU?
Comfortable and lightweight tee designed to work as hard against sweat and strenuous activity as it is against the sun. This is your sweat proof 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)

OTHER IMPORTANT STUFF
Slightly longer arm to protect and cover more skin
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

SIZING?
Athletic fit. Take the same size you typically take for sports tops. Size guide available on the website product page.

YOU ALSO GET…
7-day unlimited access to the mole-checking app, SkinVision, on every order. Use the app to map, monitor and get instant feedback without leaving the house. Skin checking is just as important as daily skin protection. Upgrade to a 12m license for just £25 (a 50% saving for our customers). All details on our website.

OUR STORY

We created LifeJacket after several close friends experienced cancer at a young age. Skin cancer is the world's most common cancer. It is forecast to double over the next 20 years. Our vision is to stop the increase by inspiring you to protect your skin every day.

A HAPPIER YOU

Taking better care isn’t just about preventing skin cancer though. Your skin is under attack every day - all year round - from harsh weather, central heating, pollution, smoke and stress to UV. We believe year-round protected skin is healthy skin and healthy skin is a happier you.

GOOD COMPANY

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.

AS SEEN IN

Recognised for our commitment to skin cancer prevention, our work with charity partner, Melanoma UK, and our educational campaign, more and more people are noticing what we’re up to. This is long-term project but it’s always good to know we’re making waves.

Reviews for UPF 50+ Active Tee

  1. Simon

    Comfy to wear

  2. Paul

    Good fit. Looks and feels great – lightweight

  3. Joe Parish

    Comfortable, great colour. Was worried about it being too hot in Spain and Portugal, but this was actually really cool to wear. It became my go to top and relief from the sun

  4. Simon

    Great value for money. Would like to see a polo type t-shirt so that you can protect back of the neck

  5. David Asquith

    Excellent product – comfortable, easy to wear & wash – and good sun protection

  6. Andrew Gill

    Great quality

  7. Sally Grumbridge

    A gift for husband who wore it constantly on holiday

  8. Joe Parish

    Going to get another as this has been my go to top for a 3 week holiday in Portugal, Spain and France. Worn it cycling, walking around cities and to the beach…even on my paddle board

  9. David Brooks

    Great quality, fit and stylish.

  10. Andrew Taylor

    It’s cooler that other brands (in terms of the feel against the skin)

  11. Alex lewis

    Think the t shirt is great, light and look forward to actually putting it to test in some sun.

  12. Simon

    Absolutely brilliant. Just returned from a sailing holiday in very sunny Croatia without the normal burnt torso. Wore the t shirt all week on and off the water. Washes out and dries really well. Thank you lifejacket , and the wife for finding you.

  13. Sean

    Super comfy, great fit and love the colour

  14. Gaz

    Great feel and quality

  15. Mike Richards

    Lightweight so a great addition to wear under other active clothing

  16. Martin

    I like the cut and the feel – it’s a nice tee shirt.

  17. Adrian Beck

    Good fit, feels high quality

  18. Martin

    nice comfortable shirt. Easy to wash and dry when on a boat

  19. Andrew Fisher

    Great quality, good fit. Love this company.

  20. Chris

    The Active UPF Tee is just a quality shirt. I’ve used it for runs, and also just when out and about in the Sun. I’ll be buying more. And the Rash Vest is exactly what I was looking for: Not too tight, with arm and neck coverage. The zip pocket is also useful for keys when out on the water.

  21. Gordon

    Not only are the products up there with the best, the packaging is great as it can be used for other things (like going camping or a day hike). Also the hand written note makes it a more personal experience

  22. William Paterson

    This Tee is comfortable and lightweight. I have used active wear with SPF from sports brands, more expensive, and this easily stands up against them. Highly recommend.

  23. Richard

    The moisturisers feel great…not sticky which is essential in Japan’s hot and humid spring / summer. Also smell great…very subtle but nice and fresh. The sunblocks work much better than any of the sprays / lotions I can buy here. Non-sticky, stay on during exercise but also wash off easily enough with soap and a body towel (essential when trying to follow up exercise in the sun with a soak in a hot spring!)

  24. Richard

    Genuinely could not be happier with the quality. I live in Singapore, so a cooling sports top is a mainstay. found the perfect one! Very chuffed, highly recommend.

  25. Lee

    Just FABULOUS creams / lotions. Best ever for me by a long way.

  26. Steve

    Had a lump removed in late 2018 which the medical people said was linked to the sun.My daughter found you on the tinterwebnet thing: Impressed.

  27. Andy

    Lightning quick, friendly and helpful response to email enquiry, despite being outside of normal working hours. Really nicely styled, well-made shirts

  28. Sue

    I bought a weekender pack for my son-in-law’s birthday because he loves the outdoors but has very fair skin. He had not used moisturiser before but wouldn’t be without it now. I also bought him an active T-Shirt which he loves so much he purchased another two himself. – great colours, super fit, perfect for active outdoor wear, and great protection from the sun!

  29. Rob

    Huge fan of this shirt…
    Buying it for all of the blokes in my family to make Christmas shopping a bit easier!

  30. David Reyes

    Light weight easy to wash great top perfect for a sunny day

  31. Paul Selby

    Purchase a casual and active tee and both are good quality and very comfortable.
    Very lightweight and perfect for a sunny day (not that we get that many in Newcastle upon Tyne)

  32. Jonathan

    Good quality products, prompt delivery.

Skin science

A burning issue for men

Almost twice as many men die from skin cancer compared to women. Male skin cancer cases have exploded over the past 20 years and they’re forecast to double over the next 20 years.

It's chemistry

UVA rays penetrate your skin damaging the proteins that give your skin structure, causing ageing and wrinkling. UVB damages the outer skin causing sunburn. Together they're a cause of cancer.

Putting your jacket on

Real skincare should protect you from both harmful UVA and UVB rays. Rays touch your skin all year long, even in the winter. Apply skin protection all year round and stay healthy.

Used and loved by

We make high performance products people enjoy using. So far, the feedback has been positive…

“I am a pretty active guy and would always rather wear protection than have to apply it. LifeJacket’s range of clothing is that solution. I wear their active t-shirt to the gym because it is wicking, breathable and comfortable and also to play football due to the UPF protection.”

Alex, Birmingham

“Functional, high performance clothing aimed at active and outdoors type men, Exactly what I was looking for. I love the style and colour options, plus the delivery is prompt and the packaging fantastic. Also get a great vibe from the LifeJacket team trying to do something positive.”
