This well-vented, lightweight sun blocking shirt is protected by Insect Shield to keep you comfortable in the most extreme hot and sticky conditions. The 4-button neck closure and stand up collar allows you to adjust for the amount of sun protection vs comfort that you want. The two pockets with the vertical zipper closures create a secure place for your valuables and create a dressier looking shirt. In these days when baggage is limited by size and weight, it's nice to have a multifunctional shirt like this one.
