The Wicked Tech Tee has a focus on protection from the sun. With fabrics that provide a UPF 50 this is a fantastic tee for activities where it is hot and you are exposed to the sun for prolonged periods.
Mountain Hardwear says:
You can SPF all you want, but without UPF in your fabric, you might just end up with the kind of sunburn not even aloe can soothe. This short-sleeve was made for long treks through exposed valleys when your shoulder straps have rubbed off the sunscreen even your sweat couldn't get. With sun-blocking technology built into its fibers, the Wicked Tech™ has you covered.
Mountain Hardwear's Wicked Tech Short Sleeve Tee is perfectly designed for hot sunny conditions. The key focus of the fabric is the UPF 50 level of protection from the sun. By wearing this tee you are covering yourself in a barrier that will keep your skin safe from the suns UV rays. The lightweight, soft feeling fabric is still pretty breathable and it wicks moisture well so it stays comfortable in hot weather. One of the best things about it is the speed it dries, so as soon as you take a break and stop sweating this tee will start to dry out, reducing the risk of chaffing and increasing comfort.
