Banner & Oak Coyote T-shirt

I occasionally receive free products to test in exchange for reviews. With hot, humid summer days in the Midwest, choosing lighter, more breathable clothing is a must. Banner and Oak’s Coyote tee was perfect for strolling around the campground on a sunny afternoon. The graphic on the tee is what really caught my eye. Simple and nature-inspired, this shirt will be a go-to on my future camping adventures. Soft, comfy, and cool. This 60/40 cotton/polyester blend is perfect to toss on for a night… Full review

Smartwool Merino Sport 150 Hidden Pocket Tech Tee

The Smartwool Merino Sport 150 Hidden Pocket Tech Tee is a lightweight tee-shirt, made from a comfortably soft blend of merino wool and polyester (56% merino/44% polyester). This combination makes for a shirt that breathes well, stays cool, dries quickly, and doesn’t stink after a day of hiking. An ideal shirt for warm weather adventures. Unfortunately, the hidden pocket isn't very practical. Conditions: I’ve worn the Smartwool Merino Sport 150 Hidden Pocket Tech Tee regularly for two months,… Full review

Banner & Oak Crescent Tee

It is so hard to find T-shirts with the graphics on the back! So when I saw the adorable graphic, I knew I had to have it I really love the look of this shirt. The purple shade is true to the picture and pops with my blonde hair. I’m 5’ 6’’, 175 pounds, and typically wear a XL or size 14. I ordered the XL and it fits true size. My only complaint is the arm holes are tight on me. I do have larger than average upper arms though. They did stretch out to a more comfortable fit as I wore the… Full review

Banner & Oak Crescent Tee

Comfortable shirt that looks good with everything. The shirt is soft and fits great. This shirt was bought for my wife and she wears it a lot. She likes how soft it is and it fits her well. She says it fits true to her size and she wears it out for daily errands or she can wear it while we are out camping. The design is nice and looks good. Full review

Banner & Oak Coyote T-shirt

True to size and washes great, the Banner and Oak women's Coyote t-shirt is a great buy! Super soft and lightweight. From time to time I get to review gear in exchange for the product. I was able to review this shirt as a result. I love this shirt for its flattering and comfortable fit. The fabric is a combination of cotton and poly which gives it nice stretch, breathability, and dries quickly. The torso of the shirt is a touch longer than other shirts I've gotten over the years which I like as… Full review

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

Patagonia Capilene Cool Trail Shirt

Patagonia's Capilene Cool Trail Shirt is a great T-shirt for backpacking, hiking, and running in warmer seasons, and even in shoulder seasons for folks with a high metabolism. It is very comfortable, dries quickly, and doesn’t stink after a few days. In addition, this Patagonia Capilene fabric shirt is Fair Trade Certified and meets Bluesign sustainability criteria, and is now on the top of my T-shirt pile for hiking and other activities. The lightweight construction may wear faster than heavier… Full review

ioMerino Ultra Tee

The Ultra Tee is a comfortable Merino wool T-shirt that’s great for hiking, running and global travel. I’ve been travelling for the last 18 months and the Ultra Tee has been a great shirt for working out on the road. My Usage Having minimal gear with me whilst travelling makes life so much easier. I like to try and stay healthy on the road and exercise regularly so I pack running shorts, my Altra Escalantes, and the Ultra Tee as my workout clothes. I throw on the Ultra Tee every couple of… Full review

La Sportiva Forward T-Shirt

The Forward T-Shirt from La Sportiva is a well-made, comfortable, technical quarter zip tee for trail running and other “high-output aerobic activities.” In my year and a half of use, I’ve found it to fit well, stretch and move with my body, and not cause any chafing (the bane of my running). Its Polygiene anti-bacterial/anti-odor treatment has excelled, with still no whiff of stink, despite many hot, sweaty miles. The Forward T-Shirt is best for running in warm weather. I find it most comfortable… Full review
