Our tips for a woman's UV-resistant hiking outfit

Is hiking one of your favourite activities? To be comfortable, whether you are doing a 5-kilometre walk or a 3-day trek in the desert, you will need clothing that is both suitable for hiking and capable of effectively protecting your skin from the sun's rays.

Some women simply choose to wear a long-sleeved UV-resistant T-shirt, while others prefer a UV-resistant hiking shirt. The most important thing is to choose clothes that are suitable for hiking, as these are designed to be breathable and quick-drying, giving you maximum comfort and freshness. What is more, hiking is not a risk-free activity for your clothes. For bottoms, it is best to opt for anti-UV hiking trousers that are resistant to abrasion and snagging.

Whether you are an occasional hiker or a club Nordic walker, protecting your head and face from the sun is essential. A good sun hat should be lightweight and have a wide brim or a veil around the neck. You should also think about protecting your hands from the sun, which are also highly exposed to UV rays when hiking. UV mittens or gloves are an excellent solution for dealing with the dangers of the sun and preventing the appearance of brown spots. Are you more comfortable wearing a short-sleeved UV protection T-shirt? We recommend wearing UV protection sleeves to protect your arms.

In all cases, hiking clothing is designed to dry quickly and wick away moisture from perspiration, so you can enjoy your activity in maximum comfort.
