Hi All,

 

With summer (hopefully) just around the corner I was wondering what sort of protection from the elements people use?

 

I find that no matter how much sun screen I put on my face, and I wear a hat, I still have a slight redness slightly burnt sensation.

 

I wonder if it isn't windburn, and maybe once of those face shield thingys might help?

 

What do you use?

 

Al

You can judge a person by how much they help someone who can do nothing for them in return.

SPF50 plus, polarised sunglasses, broad brimmed hat and now neck, face shield as well...very easy to get burnt now. Not worth it.

You may look like a twat but these work and work well.

Also long sleeve cotton shirts  with a decent collar from your local Hospice store which has a ready and cheap supply.

Buy and wear a decent hat not a cap.

Decent hat is right. I use Shelta Hats - awsome, float, no flappy brim https://www.sheltahats.com/

There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats
