What's the best sun-proof apparel?

I love the outdoors, but I'm at risk of developing melanoma (my mom passed away a few years ago from it) which limits my ability to be outside. What can I wear to reduce my risk of melanoma and remain comfortable?

I also like Sun Precautions's Men’s Cargo Pants ($85), a comfortable, practical pair of pants with two cargo pockets, belt loops, partially elastic waist, and traditional straight legs. Sun Precautions says the Cargo Pants have an SPF rating of 100. The company also makes the Solumbra Sun Hat ($53), which is also made with UV-reducing Solumbra fabric and has a wide, sun-defeating brim that keeps your eyes face protected.
