Nozone Clothing offers an array of stylish products designed to provide maximum protection from solar radiation, using specialized fabrics that have been awarded the highest rating possible of UPF 50+. Sunsuits, shirts and sunglasses are just a few of the many sun-safe items. This Vancouver Island family owned and operated business was founded in 1996 by parents who were determined to find a better way to protect their family from the harmful effects of the sun and endless applications of chemical-filled sunscreens. nozoneclothing.com

It’s in the Bag!

These gorgeous roomy bags are made from repurposed vintage sails here on Vancouver Island in small batches. Their wide footprint gives them a burly stance, especially on rocky boats or uneven beaches. They will haul just about anything you can throw at them with ease, but beware, they can hold it but you still need to schlepp it! With two internal sleeves to hold your refreshments and another large one to accommodate other loose items, this bag lets you ride it out in style. Gym bag, mobile office, weekender or diaper bomber, the possibilities are endless! ahoybags.com
