Men’s heat-buster – Howler Brothers Longsleeve Aransas: On hot-weather hikes, testers raved about the cooling effect of this 15 UPF, collared, long-sleeved button-down. “There’s some cotton [35 percent] mixed with the poly, and the looser weave (compared to the Simms, below) feels airy and soft, not plasticky,” says one tester, who also liked the heat-releasing, mesh-lined vents in the upper back. “It’s slower to dry than synthetic shirts, but on a three-day hike in Utah’s Canyonlands, it kept me protected but not stifled.” Bonus: The microfiber-lined chest pocket offers convenient sunglasses storage. $80; 10 oz.
