UPF stands for Ultraviolet Protection Factor. It is measure of the UV protection provided by fabric. A UPF rating is granted to apparel or gear that has been tested and proven to block a certain amount of ultraviolet radiation. UPF is similar to SPF, except that UPF means UV testing was conducted with equipment rather than on people's skin. SPF measures the length and time of protection against sunburn from UVB compared to unprotected skin. SPF rating only applies to lotions applied directly to the skin, not fabrics
