What are two surefire ways to take the fun out of summertime outings? Sunburn and clingy, sweaty clothes. You can keep both at bay with this protective shirt from RailRiders.
The Adventure top for women and men is made of a soft, quick drying nylon with built-in UPF 30+ sun protection (UPF, or ultraviolet protection factor, measures how much of the sun’s UV radiation is absorbed). Ventilation is a big part of the shirt’s design. It has a cooling back vent and side mesh panels to keep air moving. Plus the fabric is treated with a special finish to increase evaporation, so you’ll stay drier and the shirt will, too.
RailRiders founder John d’Arbeloff came up with the idea for lightweight, quick drying clothing while “riding the rails” aboard a 60-foot yacht in a race off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard. After 24 hours in soaking wet canvas pants, he started sketching ideas for a line of clothing that could perform better in high seas – or during a mountain climb, round of golf, or trek around town. We featured his men’s skin-shielding, bug-repellent shirt last year, and it was a big hit. Now the UPF Adventure shirt is available, just in time for your next outdoor adventure.
