New Skin Suit for children from SEEMANN provides UV protection of 80

The suit is also for protection against jellyfish and cold

Children should never play unprotected on the water or in the sun.Seemann Kids Sun & Fun Skin Suit

Therefore SEEMANN designed a special suit for children. The full-length suit is in bright gray and yellow colors and has a diagonal back zipper. The elastic material makes it easy to put it on and off. The fresh Rebel logo showing a funny comic shark on the chest should give children a good feeling.

According to their own statement the suit complies with the requirements of the new European standard UV-801. This standard was developed because the former australian NROM SPF50+ was no sufficient protection. The new method does not only test the tissue of the material. It also has to pass the tests when wet, stretched or used - what's a bit more realistic. The suit provides a UV protection factor of 80.

The new product is available from now on in sizes XXXS (92 cm, about 2 years) to L (152 cm) at authorized SEEMANN dealers. A retail price of 65 euros is suggested. (jdo)
