Almost all my clothing is black. Warms me up nicely when the sun shines, even when the wind is blowing off a Labrador ice floe, and dries quickly. On the North Atlantic, it's only too hot to wear black for about ten days a year, and that's solved by going to the beach. Also, I look totally badass while all alone in the middle of nowhere, and the ravens are guaranteed to introduce themselves.
I've recently invested in some nice new gear, and I don't want it to die of exposure prematurely. Can anybody recommend a non-waterproofing, non-stiffening, non-whitening anti-UV treatment for synthetic fibres? Goretex shell, Nanopuff, various Polartec fleeces, Cap 3, MEC T2...yup, black all the way down. Rock on.
Most products seem intended to replace sunscreen use on skin, by making the fabric absorb the UV, but sunscreening ME is not my intent. Most of those are for natural fibres, anyway. I found McNett's UV Tech, which is marketed for use on plastic kayaks and PVC whatnots. Any experience with it on fabric?
