A women's stretchy and ultralight button-up fishing shirt, designed specifically for hot-weather situations and built from a fast-drying blended fabric with 30-UPF sun protection.
Built for warm weather fishing, our ultralight, fast-drying Long-Sleeved Sun Stretch Shirt is made from a stretchy 2.3-oz 52% nylon/48% polyester blend that offers plenty of freedom to move and breathe. Providing 30-UPF sun protection and full-arm coverage through the heat of the day, its comfortable, relaxed fit works beautifully when worn over a bathing suit or under a warmer layer when evening temperatures drop. Snap-down collar points prevent chin chafe. Two button-closure patch pockets on the chest; a hidden zippered security pocket on the left chest holds small essentials. A convenient front interior sunglass wipe panel keeps your field of vision clear. Curved hem falls to the hips.
The women's Patagonia Long Sleeved Sun Stretch Shirt feels incredibly soft and light when it's on and has a good amount of stretch allowing greater comfort and ease of motion when active. As well as being super stretchy the fabric is quick drying and offers 30 UPF sun protection.
Feature wise there's two generous chest pockets with button closures and one large zippered pocket hidden behind one of the button pockets. There's also a sunglasses wipe panel on the front interior so you don't have to use the shirt when your desperate. We like that the collar can be lifted high for extra neck protection and that it has snap buttons on the ends to keep it down when it's windy.
The shirts been designed primarily as a warm weather fishing layer however it would work great for just about any general outdoor use on a warm day.
