Some of Our Capilene® Cool Daily and Tropic Comfort Styles Missed the Mark on UPF 50+.
Here’s What You Need to Know.
We recently discovered that some products in two of our sun protection lines — certain styles of the Capilene® Cool Daily and the Tropic Comfort families — do not provide the UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) 50+ protection indicated on the garment. If you own one of these products, please know: They still offer solid UV protection. It’s just not as much as advertised.
Our tests confirm a range of UPF 17–45 instead of UPF 50, averaging UPF 34. The good news is that even at UPF 17, the products block 92% of the sun’s ultraviolet rays.
The bad news is that we didn’t deliver on our goal to offer you the highest level of sun protection. We’ve pulled our existing inventory, halted distribution of the affected styles until we can fix the problem, and we're recalling the affected products.
