Bugaboo Cameleon3 breezy sun canopy1

Today 06:19Geoff72

I am going to Greece in a months time with my 4 month old and i have been looking at buying the bugaboo breezy sun canopy.
Now being the over paranoid first time in a hot country parent i have been doing research on sun covers for our LO and the specs given by bugaboo for this cover are very confusing .
The official blurb says the canopy gives UPF 50+ protection but then goes on to say...Highly durable fabric is water- & oil- repellent and provides UPF 50+ (excl.integrated mesh panels).
Now given that what looks like 50% of the item is mesh how much protection does the mesh give if any?
I am just looking for any experiences with the item or if anyone has asked this question before.....does it give full protection??!
I can't see the point of having a sun cover that has mesh panels that don't provide protection?!
I have asked bugaboo this question and I requested complete UPF information for the mesh but they haven't responded.

We have this top. I can't answer your question (Have you emailed them or tweeted them).

But we have used our bug in hot weather - you need to consider the canopy doesn't cover the whole child depending in size of child and direction of sun.

You'll probably need a large parasol and we also took a light material and clips to make a 'black out' if they were sleeping.

In the heat make sure their backs don't get too sweaty.

We have this cover. The mesh doesn't provide any SPF but it's great to let in the breeze which in itself is important to stop them overheating. They are relying on the parents using common sense to not put the thing in the sun for any length of time (we have it in the light cover). We coated our LO in sun cream, bought a rubber electric fan (see amazon) so that if they touched it, it wouldn't hurt them, put on a sun hat (when she would let us!) and kept the pram under an parasol most of the day when we weren't walking about. Seemed to do the trick and kept her safe and cool. Have a great holiday!
