Exclamation Clothing SPF factors

Given the concern that many on the board have expressed about skin cancers I thought that I should share this article http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-5945/1/6 discussing how effective different fabrics are at blocking UV light.

It surprised me that ~50% of the fabrics tested did not adequately protect against UV.
