If you’ve ever tried strip-setting on a 150-pound tarpon with greasy, sunscreen-coated hands, you already know why we made our Sun Gloves. It’s the same for hanging onto cork when a big bone streaks for the horizon or the oar handles as you drop into Oak Springs. These simple, fingerless gloves (with cut-out palm for grip and sensitivity) replace liquid sunscreen with lightweight, fast-drying 88% recycled polyester/12% spandex fabric. Better yet, they never wash off.
Light and durable 88% recycled polyester/12% spandex with cut-out palm for better rod feel
5.6-oz 88% recycled polyester/12% spandex circular-knit jersey. Fabric is certified as bluesign® approved
Lacking fur, feathers or scales, we humans have to think up clever ways to protect ourselves from the sun. Products with the UPF designation provide built-in sun protection that won’t wear off.
To achieve sun protection, Patagonia takes a varied approach, depending on the degree of protection desired and the fabric used. Elements of the strategy can range from yarn selection to fabric construction to the use of special finishes (especially for light colors which generally provide less protection).
Patagonia has worked with bluesign technologies since 2000 to evaluate and reduce resource consumption in our materials supply chain, and to assist us with managing the chemicals, dyes and finishes used in the process. bluesign technologies, based in Switzerland, works at each step in the textile supply chain to approve chemicals, processes, materials, and products that are safe for the environment, safe for workers, and safe for the end customers.
In 2007, Patagonia became the first brand to officially join the network of bluesign® system partners.
Any fabric you see that’s bluesign® approved offers the highest level of consumer safety by employing methods and materials in their manufacture that conserve resources and minimize impacts on people and the environment.

Measurements refer to body size, not garment dimensions, and are in inches, unless otherwise noted.
Though each Patagonia® product is designed and shaped specifically for its intended use, we can generalize our fit descriptions in four ways:
Formfitting: Conforms to the body’s contours.
Slim Fit: Closer-fitting. Slim-fitting technical garments may be worn over baselayers and light midlayers.
Regular Fit: Neither slim nor oversized. Regular-fitting technical garments may be worn over heavier midlayers.
Relaxed Fit: Drapes loosely on the body.
