I spend a lot of time in the sun, so I always try to protect my skin as much as possible while I am being active.
I’m always on the hunt for a good lightweight, multifunctional shirt that protects my skin and can give me warmth when I need it.
I was approached my KÜHL’s to test out their new sun protection women’s line and give my honest feedback on the shirt.
Below you will find my honest opinion on their sun protection line, what I liked about it and why I think it will make a good addition to your wardrobe as well.
The Benefits of KÜHL’s Sun Protection Shirt
The KÜHL’s long sleeve shirt arrived and was packaged nice and even included some stickers that I could use, which I am always a fan of.
At first glance, I was very happy with the shirt. You could tell straight away that it was a good quality product.
The material was soft to touch and didn’t seem too heavy, which is important for me as the main purpose is for use in the sun to protect my skin from getting sunburnt.
I appreciate the overall material of the shirt. The shirt had a nice print on it, but was still white. This means it could go with most of my wardrobe, which is important as I like to keep a minimalist approach to it.
I was looking for a multifunctional shirt that could protect me from the sun, but also give me warmth when needed. I was very pleased with the shirt, it was lightweight and would be a great addition for my running wardrobe in the morning when it is a little chilly outside.
However, I wanted to put the shirt to the test and see how it would hold up as it is meant to be used, as a sun protection shirt.
I decided to take it with me on my trip to Mexico. I was very pleased that it passed the first test which was keeping me warm on the plane.
I always freeze on airplanes and didn’t feel like dragging a heavy hoodie with me all throughout Mexico, as the only time I would use it would be on the plane.
After providing warmth on the plane, it was time to take it to the beach, the pool and test its overall protection from the sun.
I appreciated its lightweight material and light color. I was able to wear it in the sun and have the protection that I was seeking without being too hot.
Spending several days in the sun, I was happy with the results. My skin did not burn and the shirt held up nicely in the water. The material is still in good condition, even after being in and out of the pool and the ocean.
Overall the KÜHL Shirt was
- Breathable and lightweight
- Nice Soft Material
- Easy to pack and didn’t wrinkle
Conclusions on KÜHL’s Sun Protection Shirt
Overall, I was extremely happy with the quality of the shirt, working with and working with KÜHL. I would rate the quality of their clothing similar to that of Lululemon.
You can tell that their products are built to last. And although I have only been testing their shirt for about a month now, I am very happy with it. I know that it will last and survive everything that I will put it through.
