    I have heard that Australian clothing has a special weave to help protect your skin from the harmful rays. I have heard that the ozone is worse there than anywhere else.

    Is this true, and how does the cloth feel? I am curious, and would like to know what the cost is.

    The clothing there. Is it different than the clothing here? I feel like a numbskull for asking, but it was something I heard.

    well no I don't think so, 95% of our clothes come from other country's anyway,
    but I'm no expert

    Dreamchaser--there are a several companies here in the USA that make tight-weave fabrics with built in SPF. I have a shirt made by Exofficio that has it. I wear it when I go kayaking or when I know I will be out in the sun for a long time. I think that even Columbia Sportswear makes some version of it these days.

    Sorry, I didn't see this sooner...might have been able to clear up some confusion :)
