Pros Lightest shirt in our tests, best choice for serious athletesOff-trail style, dobbyweave fabric wears well, ideal length, good overall sun protectionGreat value, lightweight, very breathable, looks good off-trail, excellent comfortVery comfortable, breathable, functionalComfortable, good sun coverage, versatile, water-ready, lightweight
Cons Lacks many sun shirt specific features, not very versatile, expensive when compared to featuresTight in the yoke, expensive, not as breathable as some competitorsOnly UPF 40, doesn't pack as well as others, difficult sleeve-capture tabsComfort at the cost of durabilityNot as durable as some options, too minimal for some
Bottom Line If you want to look fast and don't want to be held back by more casual sun shirts, give this performance top a serious lookA comfortable, good looking, feature-packed, and versatile button-upAffordable and super light for its feature selection, this shirt competes with the most technical outdoor brand namesThe comfort of this hooded sun shirt along with its sun protection make it quite the catchThis hoody is a great base layer, sun-blocker, and daily shirt for summer
