Outdoor Research Essence Tee

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Light, soft, and quick to dry, the Women's Outdoor Research Essence Tee has the performance of a Merino wool blend and the feel of cotton. The active cut fits more like your favorite T-shirt than a piece of technical wear. The seams are moved away from your shoulders for more comfort when carrying a pack.

Most moisture-wicking shirts become pretty smelly after you've sweated up a storm. The Outdoor Research Essence Tee's FreshGuard anti-release wool neutralizes odors, so you can stand to be with yourself on your backpacking trips. This lightweight Outdoor Research short-sleeve shirt dries quickly as you hike up the trail, and the Essence T-Shirt's UPF fabric protects your skin from mid-day burns. And the icing on this tee-cake? The strategically offset shoulder seams won't rub underneath your pack's straps. So just breathe a chafage-free sigh of relief.
