Mens Beach Clothing

Mens beach clothing for the males in our family is more about function than fashion.  Solid color tops and patterned swim trunks are easy to put together and can be worn at the beach or for a short walk to town. 

Mens Beach Clothing with UV Protection

Although I do wear some sunscreen, it needs to be applied frequently for good UV protection.  Wearing a rash guard is a good and simple way to protect my front, shoulders and back.

Wearing a UV protection shirt to protect my skin is much easier than applying and reapplying sunscreen.  The shirt is really lightweight, wick's away sweat and dries quickly.  It can be worn it in and out of the water.

Ranging in size from small to XXX-large, the Hanes Men's Short Sleeve Cool Dri T-Shirt provides a UPF protection of 50+.  They come in an assortment of solid colors, with white being our favorite. The price at Amazon is reasonable - between $12-$30 - for two of them - depending on the size and color one selects.

Long Sleeve UV Protection Mens Beach Clothing

I wore this long sleeve rash guard everyday and was happy that I got two of them.

The medium was true to size and felt very light even when it got wet.  Dries quickly so you can wear it comfortably in and out of the water.  I found that wearing UV protection clothing a simpler option rather than applying sunscreen repeatedly to my front, back and shoulders.  

If you select the white option, you can get two with free shipping as an Amazon Prime Member:

Wear UV Protection Clothing on Cloudy Days

Did you know you can get sunburned even when the sun's not out? Wear UV protection clothing even on cloudy days. "Up to 40 percent of the sun's ultraviolet radiation reaches the earth on a completely cloudy day. This misperception often leads to the most serious sunburns, because people spend all day outdoors with no protection from the sun." reports

UV Eye Protection

UV eye protection is provided best with wrap around sunglasses that prevent UV rays from entering the sides or from the top.  This inexpensive pair of sunglasses by Bonmixc has become my favorite at $20.  A polarized lens eliminates glare and the lenses protect without making things dark.

Cooling Sleeves for Arm Protection

Add UV protection with these light weight sleeves by Nike. You can easily put them on or take them off depending on how much sun exposure you want.

Surprisingly they don't make you feel more hot, because the sleeves are lightweight, the fabric breathes and wicks away sweat and moisture. 

Pack them in a corner of your beach bag because they don't take up any room.

Whether you like a solid color or a pattern, Penguin makes a swim trunk that fits those who don't like their swim trunks going down to their knees. This one goes to about the mid-thigh.

I like my swimwear to have a liner - and this one does.

The stripes come in three color options of blue, green or red.  The fabric is 100 % polyester with a full mesh lining and draw string. 

The longer length on these swimsuits come to just below the knee.
