Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Designed for fishing in hot and humid conditions, our Tropic Comfort 1/4-Zip lets the steam out with a deep-zippered neck for instant relief and temperature regulation. It's now made from fast-drying, ultralight fabric-the same material as our Capilene(R) Cool Daily styles-that stretches with your body, provides 50+ UPF sun protection, wicks away perspiration and keeps things fresh with HeiQ(R) Fresh durable odor control. Long sleeves with thumb holes keep the backs of your hands covered, while the gusseted underarms offer additional freedom of movement for casting-or reaching for the big high-five when that permit finally decides to eat. Fair Trade Certified(TM) sewn.

Sometimes, the protection of a long-sleeved top can be a welcome respite under a strong summer sun. If you're scrambling up an exposed ridge or casting into a glimmering river, shield yourself from harsh rays with the Patagonia Tropic Comfort 1/4-Zip Shirt. More relaxed fitting than most performance tops, the Tropic Comfort's Capilene Cool fabric will keep moisture moving consistently away from your skin to keep you cool and dry as you wade or hike. Its quarter-zip furthers the cause as well, allowing for bigger heat dumps when the temperature rises under a midday sun, while a Polygiene anti-odor treatment keeps offensive aromas at bay. Plus, you can feel comfortable casting and hiking all day in the most exposed conditions with UPF 50+ sun protection giving you the most reliable protection around.
