Frequently Asked Questions

What is ?


This is the Ultraviolet Protection Factor. The textile industry uses it as a standard to determine the level of sun protection of a garment's fabric, classified from 15 to 50+. Our clothes with the UPF 50+ label have the maximum UV protection, i.e. 98% of the sun's rays are blocked, even when worn wet. This protection is chemical free, thanks to the very tight mesh of the micro-fibers. It is therefore permanent and will remain wash after wash.




What are the pros and cons?


Here are 4 good reasons to fall for an F2M top: - it is UPF50+ certified, maximum protection, chemical free - without any imprint on marine life - it is made in France - short circuits - it is made of recycled fishing nets and nylons - circular economy - it is extra resistant to chlorine and salt water and maintains its shape - top of the range Yes, but : "If I put on my T-shirt, I don't need an anti-UV top? » F2M tops provide 98% protection against UVA and UVB rays, wet or dry, whereas your dry T-shirt will block them up to 80% and when wet only 65%. "I already have an anti-UV top and it suits me very well". Keep it of course, but when you need to change it, choose one made from ghost nets! "To protect myself from UV rays I can also wear sunscreen. Why should I wear a UV protection top?" Here are a few arguments for sunscreen versus F2M tops: diffuses its chemical components into the water / chemical free products
effective if applied ½ hour before exposure / effective as soon as worn protection provided if applied regularly / top worn = unlimited protection single use / infinitely reusable plastic tube container / made from recycled fishing nets the sand sticks / nothing sticks and you are even protected against rubbing On the long term, the sun protection provided by our tops is the most economical and sustainable.
