When I started golfing six years ago, I would come home from a long day in the sun and notice redness around my neck. The sun damage was noticeable enough to see my dermatologist. My dermatologist informed me that I had a basal cell on the back of the neck. After seeing my doctor I was motivated to support my skin health by preventing further damage and the effects of aging caused by the sun.
To combat the excessive sun exposure, I did what many men do: applied sunblock. But because of activity and heat, it would sweat off. Popping the coLLar would ruin my shirts from the sunblock residue and to be honest I didn't like that look. So, I looked deeper for a solution to protect the most sun-exposed area of my skin: I looked for a shirt that would cover my neck. I did research, and so did my wife. Then I realized that what I was looking for didn't exist.
I set out to design the coLLo poLo: a UV 50+ smart poLo with an extra high coLLar, that not only would help me but would help others too. The patented coLLar sets it apart from all other poLos on the market. Regardless of our age group or ethnicity, we all need protection from the sun! Whether it's for prevention, health, or just your good looks, the coLLo poLo has you covered.
