What is really cool about these leggings is that they offer UPF 50+ protection.

The 50+ rating is the highest classification with only less than 2.5% UV rays that get past the fabric. These leggings are perfect if you intend to do yoga outside on a hot day and if you have more sensitivity to the sun rays.
