Just heard about this SunGuard Protection that can be washed into clothes to increase the SPF. Will last for over 10 laundiries.

"Applying sunscreen and covering up with a T-shirt may seem like complete sun protection, but did you know you're not really shielding yourself from the damaging rays of the sun? Well, protecting the entire family from the sun's harmful UV rays has just become easier. By simply adding SunGuard to your laundry, you can transform everyday clothing into sun protective gear with a UPF protection of 30."

Sold in the States, but may be available elsewhere.

I would be more interested in rain protection, personally. Three caminos behind me, and sun was never a problem.....A tan is OK by me, rust is not so good :)
