Columbia Cascades Explorer Long Sleeve Shirt

Stay comfortable in this long sleeve shirt even when the temps are close to 100°F.

Brand: Columbia Sportswear

Model: Cascades Explorer Long Sleeve Shirt


Specs

Weight

8oz.

Protection

The UPF 30 shirt proved ideal during five days of hiking and boating in the hot, humid, and buggy Amazon. The collar unfolds twice for extra sun coverage, and a vented mesh panel across the upper back kept us from overheating in temps upward of 95°F. The tight weave of the fabric prevents bugs from biting through.

Trail life

Shirts typically start feeling crunchy after a few days of constant sweat and dry cycles. But the Explorer remained presentable after a week, thanks to Omni-Shield, which uses a proprietary method for integrating the DWR with the fabric for better resistance to moisture and grime.

Features

Two front chest pockets are large enough for an energy bar or a passport, and the hem has a small triangular microfiber patch for cleaning lenses.

Fit

The slightly relaxed—but not sloppy—shape maximizes airflow.

$50; 8 oz. (M)
