Keep Cool Apparel and Accessories

Sun Shield

1. As you hit the trail this summer, don’t forget your sun protection­—and we’re not just talking about sunscreen! If you choose to wear a helmet when you’re in the saddle, you know your nose is exposed to the sun and at risk of getting burnt. You’re probably also squinting to see what’s ahead of you. Solve these problems by using Troxel’s detachable helmet brimmer ($49.99; troxelhelmets.com) for added shade and protection from the summer sun. With a full 4 1/2-inch palm leaf brim that attaches to any Troxel helmet, you can easily switch out the brimmer to another helmet to have a different look for every ride.

2. Ventilated Boots

These kicks make summer chores a breeze thanks to the ventilated shaft that provides maximum airflow and the seven-layer outsole that creates a cushioned footbed. $176;

3. Kid’s Comfort

Have a little one in tow? This t-shirt not only helps keep your child cool with AriatTEK breathable material, but also wicks moisture and provides protection from UV rays. $24.95; ariat.com.

4. Built-In Protection

While we always recommend applying sunscreen before stepping outside, this quarter-zip long-sleeve shirt protects your upper body from the sun with its UPF 50 sun protection. $39.95; smartpakequine.com.

5. Cactus Cap

Cactus prints have been a must-have this year. However, this ball cap is more than just stylish; its mesh back will help your head stay cool while protecting your face from harsh rays. $29.99; stsranchwear.com.
