Post your nominations, if you are trying to minimize UV exposure.

Behold: My latest UV-phobic purchase ...



Fits well under the helmet and the straps hold the scarf in place. It has a sweat-band like a dew rag.

I took it for a 12 mi test ride yesterday. My first impressions were largely positive. I will have to give it the 1pm peak UV/heat test. One thing that did catch me by surprise was the wind noise. It gets quite loud.

$20 on Amazon and Nashbar.

Better Fred than dead.

I was just thinking of making a thread like this. Budget recommendations:

GREAT SPF long fingered glove. SCREW YOU half-finger sunburn: $45USD and Prime. Very good airflow, moderate padding (nvm the "gel" label they feel more like medium cushion rubber) and as light a weight as you can go.
Amazon.com : Pearl Izumi - Ride Men's Pro Gel Vent Full Finger Gloves : Sports & Outdoors

Sugoi leg coolers are F'ing $40 USD....These are $15USD and Prime, have zippers and still decent construction
Amazon.com: Rotibox Unisex Compression Fit Ice Cooler Cooling Leg Sleeves Leg Warmers UV Sun Protection for Outdoor Sports Cycling Basketball Hiking Climbing Indoor activities Even Work-space 1 Pair: Sports & Outdoors

Branded base layer long-sleeve shirts OR sun-sleeves cost 2X more than these do, and they're Prime AND flat-braid stitch. Wear them under a short sleeve jersey, avoid arm-burn/tan AND bib-suspender tan under your jersey (had that later happen last year):

HeadSweats are the brand everyone knows of...but they don't always fit under helmets...meet these, lighterweight and fits under any helmet:

All prime, all stuff I have owned enough to like
