A fast-wicking, quick-drying crew made from lightweight 100% polyester, with 25-UPF sun protection and thumb holes on the cuffs for additional coverage for the hands.
When that monster permit finally shows, you can’t afford to be wiped out from heat and sun. That’s where the ultralight Sunshade Crew comes to the rescue: its airy, 100% polyester double-knit fabric and 50+ UPF sun protection work to keep you cool and comfortable in the high temperatures of the lower latitudes. Its technical features include thumb holes that pull the sleeves down to cover the backs of the hands, and a vertical-zip pocket on the front-left chest that keeps small valuables secure, the zipper is durable plastic to prevent corrosion in marine environments. The Sunshade can’t cure permit nerves—but hey, at least you’ll be ready when the time comes.
