The Antigua Group, Inc. - one of America's leading designers and marketers of lifestyle and golf apparel under the Antigua brand – has said that its new Exceed long-sleeve polos for 2016 incorporate a UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) 50 rating.

Similar to the SPF rating system used for sunscreens, a garment with a UPF of 50 blocks 98 percent of UV radiation, allowing just 1/50th of it falling on the surface of the garment to pass through, it said in a pres release. In this case, a UPF 50 factor is incorporated into Antigua's Exceed solid-coloured, long-sleeve polos, which are 100 percent polyester micro flat pique with Desert Dry Xtra-Lite D²XL moisture management.

It's offered in men's and women's styles. Then men's has a three-button placket, flat knit collar and open cuff that comes in a choice of white, dark red, dark purple, dark royal, navy and black. The women's features a three-button Y-neck placket, flat knit collar and open cuff, and comes in a choice of white, dark red, dark royal, navy and black.

"Our long-sleeve Exceed for men and women has a UPF 50 factor," said Ron McPherson, President and CEO of Antigua. "It's strong protection from the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays. These fine products are worn for protection by golfers and tennis players, as well as other outdoor enthusiasts. Sure, it's a great golf shirt in cool to cold weather. However, it also offers excellent sun protection, as well."

The Antigua Group's golf division holds license agreements with the PGA TOUR, LPGA and the PGA of America. (SH)
