REI New Route Henley T-shirt

This merino/nylon blend shirt is the pleasant surprise of the season. Though advertised for casual wear, it is a fine shirt for warm weather hiking.                 A warm spring day in the foothills Being a Merino wool lover, I was looking for a casual henley style shirt for everyday wear. Seeing that it was described as having a "Merino Wool/nylon blend mesh" weave, I thought it might be a comfy shirt in warm weather, so I ordered it up. After wearing it a couple of times, I thought I… Full review

Royal Robbins Men's Merinolux Flannel Long Sleeve Shirt

The Royal Robbins Merinolux Flannel Long Sleeve Shirt is a decent option for cool to cold weather hiking. People who like the look of a flannel shirt and want to avoid cotton will approve. So will hikers who crave high durability. Relatively low amounts of merino wool limit the shirt's temperature range: it's 46% Sorona polyester, 43% polyester, and 11% merino wool. Claims that the shirt has "superior softness" aren't accurate. INTRODUCTION Royal Robbins claims that its Merinolux Flannel Long Sleeve… Full review

RailRiders Women's Adventure Top

Can't say enough about this shirt. Its UV protection and comfortable, lightweight, and quick drying fabric make this an awesome choice for activities in a variety of climates. Fit & Comfort: I love this shirt! Does it make you look like a pilgrim? Yes, but's its a great shirt nonetheless. It is lightweight, comfortable and it dries quickly—making it ideal for multi-day trips in the backcountry.  The fabric will get stiff as sweat dries, but that's to be expected and nothing a quick rinse… Full review

Columbia Men's Silver Ridge Short Sleeve Shirt

UPF 30 protection at an affordable price. The same features as my Silver Ridge Pants, but with UPF 30 protection due to the short sleeve factor. Same true to size, same quality but also featuring two vents in the back for direct ventilation and enchanced breathability. The fabric is a little more "3D", so to speak, mesh weave in comparison to the SR pants that aids in not stick-to-your-skin feeling when sweaty.If you want the UPF 50 protection you should stick to the long-sleeve version.

Toad&Co Ventilair Short Sleeve Shirt

Bluesign fabric keeps you cool and moisture free. UV protection makes this a dual function shirt. As an outdoor enthusiast who likes to combine travel and hiking or backpacking, I am always on the lookout for dual function clothing. The Toad&Co Ventilair Short Sleeve Shirt is perfect for this purpose. The shirt is manufactured from "Bluesign" approved fabric that Toad&Co call Suncool. Combining organic cotton to pull the moisture from the body with heat reflecting hydrophobic polyester… Full review

Craghoppers NosiLife Prospect Long-Sleeved Shirt

Permanent Insect Shield sets this shirt apart from the crowd. Anti-bacterial, moisture control, and solar shield make for a very versatile shirt. This Craghoppers Prospect long sleeve shirt with NosiLife insect control has provided me with a lot insect-free days on the trail and during travels. It's made from 100% Polyamide (nylon) with the synthetic pyrethroid treated yarn. For those that like a scientific explanation "Synthetic pyrethroids are synthesized derivatives of naturally occurring pyrethrins,… Full review

Sierra Designs Long Sleeve Pack Polo

This is a really well-designed shirt that could be great with tweaks to the fabric and sizing. I bought this shirt hoping that it would be my go-to shirt for backpacking. Unfortunately, the sizing is simply too small, and the fabric is not all that comfortable. Fit & Comfort:  Sierra Designs products run really small, I guess. The size chart says 34-37" in the chest for a small, and they really mean it. I normally wear a 37" or 38", and this shirt fits snugly around my chest. The really constricting… Full review

Peter Storm Long Sleeve Travel Shirt

Tough shirt made of heavy gauge nylon. The main point of interest in this shirt, and the reason I am reviewing it, is the heavy gauge material from which it is made. Most nylon (polyamide) shirts are flimsy things designed for comfort in hot weather rather than toughness. This shirt is the precise opposite. To give you an idea, my size medium weighs 309g (10.9z) when the average shirt weighs less than 250g (8.8oz). If you need a heavy duty nylon shirt for whatever reason—for instance, a shirt… Full review

Mountain Hardwear Men's Canyon Shirt Long Sleeve

Tough, durable, cool shade. The best summer hiking and work wear I have found. I'm a landscaper in hot Tucson where 1/4 second of shade from a flying by airplane is helpful. Dealing with desert heat and plants takes toughness as so many plants have thorns and needles. Yet this is the coolest wearing shady shirt I've ever found. Had these over 10 years, yet they do not show any wear and I wear them often. Still don't have a tear in either, an amazing feat in the desert. Full review
