Show Description

Life is better outside – provided you have protection from sun and bugs. For the Sun Dodger Shirt, we chose fabric that's thick enough to stop bugs from biting through, but light enough to wear through the day's peak heat. It also folds into its own pocket to disappear inside your pack.

  • Woven, buttery soft nylon and spandex blend.
  • Wicking finish moves moisture so it dries quickly.
  • Fabric provides UPF 50+ sun protection.
  • Zippered chest pocket holds small essentials.
  • Gusseted underarm panels increase range of motion.
  • Snap front.
  • Slip in side pocket doubles as a stuff sack.
