A trusty long-sleeved travel shirt made with a fast-wicking, 100% organic cotton open-weave fabric that provides ultralight, cool-wearing relief from the sun when you need it most.
A long-time Patagonia favorite for tropical travel, the Long-Sleeved Steersman’s fast-wicking, plain-weave 100% organic cotton crinkle fabric lifts away from the skin for maximum comfort in hot and humid conditions. Light, airy and breathable with a slimmer, more contemporary fit and coconut buttons throughout, it offers full-length cover up from the sun, resists wrinkling in a backpack or duffel and keeps you presentable for airport lines and border crossings. Other features include a traditional button front, 2-button cuffs, double-needle reinforced seams, chest pockets with button-flap closures and a shirttail hem.
Patagonia's L/S Steersman Shirt stands out from the others due to the soft feel, it's also made from 100% organic cotton. Organically farmed cotton employs nature-based solutions to manage pests and build healthy soil instead of the synthetic pesticides, herbicides, defoliants, fertilizers and GMO seeds used to grow conventional cotton.
The shirt has 2 decent sized (can fit a phone) chest pockets with coconut button flap closures. The cuffs also have 2 button closures for adjusting the length of the sleeve.
As always Patagonia are thinking about the environmental impact, as well as providing you with a comfortable, practical shirt.
