Sun can be a serious fun-ruiner. So Patagonia designed the solution—wear it to extend your next fishing trip.
This lightweight, moisture-wicking recycled polyester mask provides sun protection for head, face and neck.
Trade the boiled-lobster turista look for the cool colors and bold prints of Patagonia's Sun Mask. The design improves on the old-school bandana concept with an anatomically designed shape and 100% recycled polyester jersey for a cotton-like feel, super-high wicking performance and 20-UPF sun protection (prints only); it hugs your face without unwanted pressure, while the bottom flares for neck coverage. Flat-sewn seams equal extra comfort, and the breathable fabric minimizes eyewear fogging and voice restriction. Easily converts into a hat, headband, neck gaiter or wristband. Available in solid color, camo or prints with original artwork.

In 1993, Patagonia adopted fleece into their product line made from post consumer recycled (PCR) plastic soda bottles. They were the first outdoor clothing manufacturer to do so. PCR® clothing was a positive step towards a more sustainable system – one that uses fewer resources, discards less and better protects people’s health.
Today, Patagonia uses more sources for recycled polyester and offer it on more garments such as Capilene® baselayers, shell jackets, board shorts, and fleece. Patagonia now recycles used soda bottles, unusable manufacturing waste, and worn out garments into polyester fibers to produce much of the clothing.
Using recycled polyester lessens dependence on petroleum as a raw material source, curbs discards and reduces toxic emissions from incinerators.
