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

Columbia Women's Omni-Dry Tamiami Long Sleeve Shirt

This would be a good shirt for travelling (really ideal, if they dispensed with the embroidered brand logos on the chest and sleeve), and fine for a day of light hiking or fishing, but not for repeated vigorous use, or a backpacking trip. This is the first specially-intended-for-outdoorsy-pursuits shirt I have ever purchased, and I did so want to love it, and for it to be a real improvement on what I usually wear to hike or camp (my husband's permanent press "dress" shirts that have gotten too ratty… 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 PFG Bahama II Long Sleeve Shirt

Terrific for warm weather, direct sunshine use. Application in fishing, hiking, and camping are great! Roomy fit for active uses! Perfect for a fishing or hiking. Long sleeves could take off the chill in the morning or protect from direct sunlight on warm afternoons. Vents and pockets are idea for active use fishing, as well as attractive enough for city streets!  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

Icebreaker Oreti Short Sleeve Shirt

Easily the most practical summer shirt for outdoor or casual wear. As you're heading outdoors and wondering what to pack to be as light as possible, look no further than this shirt. It breathes, it's light and comfortable, it will never smell bad (almost), and it's made pretty tough. You can also fit a map in the two big front pocket that are easily accessible. Same quality build we'd expect from Icebreaker. Buttons snap super tight and zippers feel like quality. Take this shirt and head out without… Full review
