Hi Kerryn and Steve
Just wanted to thank you again for the awesome gear we got from you today.
I tried on the hat as soon as I got home and I have to say FINALLY SOMEONE GOT IT RIGHT!! :) It well and truly exceeds the hat and buff I have been using and I look forward to using your hat this coming weekend in the comp and for all my outdoor activities in the future.
I look forward to working with you to promote the Sun Protection Australia brand and will keep you updated with pictures .
Thank you again
I am a retired business man who took up sea kayaking in Byron Bay in 2007 about 5 years ago and have become fanatical about it. Played a lot of golf prior to that but only occasionally now
An inaugural expedition to the Whitsundays was in the planning stages for mid 2008 and I was directed to GO SO to get proper sun protection gear. It was indeed fortunate that Kerryn was in the shop that day. She outfitted the boys with Go So hats that were sensational in protecting head and particularly back of neck from sun.
Upon return went and thanked Kerryn for help and she insisted I try the GO SO shirts.
My real awakening to the entire GO SO range emanated from the Murray Marathon in Dec 2008. This is a five day 404 km kayak paddle down the Murray River from Mulwala?? to Swan Hill from Dec 27 to Dec 31 each year. About 7 – 10 hours a day paddling in mid 30 degree heat and humidity which is further amplified with sun refection off water. I had been given lots of advice about what to wear: thermals, rash vests, cotton t-shirts etc etc. After 2 days I was entirely dissatisfied with whatever I was wearing as it was very uncomfortable and unseemly hot and sticky. Out of desperation decided to wear GO SO shirt on day 3 which I had brought along for après paddling wear. It was sensational – difference between GO SO and rashies etc was like night and day. GO SO was comfortable, cool, whisked sweat away and eliminated the angst that had been present due to inappropriate gear on days 1 & 2. I had only brought one along but washed it each night for remaining 2 days and wore it the last 3 days. It made a significant difference to my comfort levels( mentally and physically ) which is incredibly important in events such as these as towards the end fatigue sets in and small things can irritate and grow into major problems in one’s mind.
Lombok Indonesia was our next “ heat ” kayaking venture: again 30 degree heat every day and heavy humidity. And because we were lazy did a lot of paddling midday which is hottest time especially with sun reflecting off water. Tried rashie but discarded it quite quickly for Go So shirt. I had learned my lesson from Murray Marathon and brought 5 GO SO shirts with me. This was excellent for one of my colleagues as I lent him one which he wore every day; and he washed it every night; and wore it every day !!! Wore GO SO for the entire 10 day trip; and as expected they were tremendously comfortable and effective in minimizing negative effects of heat and sun exposure.
Whilst not playing much golf these days as kayaking takes up most of my spare time, I do go on a few social golf trips mainly to the Gold Coast in summer. I leave my conventional golf shirts at home now and just take Go So. Mainly because they’re cool and don’t stick to you like all the conventional golf shirts seem to even the very expensive up market double mercerized cotton ones !! Another aspect I like is the flexibility in sleeve length as they can be long sleeve or short sleeve thru the innovative sleeve “roll up” feature.
Doing a kayaking trip to Vanuatu in May and the boys are following my lead and using Go So gear.

"My name is Tracey Lawless and I am an Austswim Teacher. A few months ago, I bought one of your GoSo UPF50 Multi Sports Tops at the Lismore Camping & Caravan Show. At that time, I was looking for a rash/swim shirt that lasted longer than a few weeks. The ones I have been using contain lycra and the chlorine and salt eat it away in no time. I was eager to try out your shirt and report back to you on its performance.
I am in an outdoor pool teaching 5 days a week during the summer. I have been wearing the shirt every day and I am impressed with its performance both in and out of the water . It is light weight and dries quickly without being restrictive or heavy when wet. I also wore it on a recent holiday (see photo attached) and found it comfortable and multi purpose."

Hi I am a receptionist at the Manning Great lakes Skin Cancer Clinic situated in the Manning Valley NSW.
Working in this type of practice has really opened my eyes to the danger that comes with unprotected exposure to the sun.
We promote “prevention” in our clinic and as a result I went looking on the internet for a complete range of Sunprotection clothing I could sell in the clinic. It was easier than I thought as the first site I found was
Sunprotection Australia. They have provided me with a comprehensive range to suit all types of patients covering all ages and hobbies from your typical fisherman & sporting types to bowlers, Surf club rowers and even our local dragon boat racers. I love the service they provide and I very happy to recommend this company.

"Preventing Skin Cancer starts with avoiding sun burn and a critical part of sun burn avoidance is adequate UV Protection clothing. This is particularly important during high exposure outdoor activities in the middle of the day.
Sunprotection Australia's clothing is designed specifically to provide maximum protection from intense Ultraviolet Radiation.
Sunprotection Australia's founder Warren Meanwell, was a patient of mine, and led the way in promoting quality UV protection clothing. His own courageous battle with melanoma ironically personalises the tragedy of the current skin cancer epidemic in Australia. Throughout his illness Warren continued to provide a model of caring and compassion. His aim was to prevent others from suffering as he had. Warren's legacy will be that GoSo Sun Protection Clothing will save others from unnecessary suffering."

We would like to thank you for the fantastic GoSo shirts. The Goonellabah Roof Tiling team have all been converted to wearing your amazing product. Graham has been wearing the shirts for over 3 years & we decided to purchase shirts for our employees. One shirt each at first & they all wanted more!!! The shirts are so light weight & cool to wear in our hot climate. One of the staff members was so impressed with the shirts he was washing his shirt every day!
Thank you again we will certainly be purchasing more shirts form your company.
