Shirts built to protect you from the sun used to be ugly, overtly technical, and downright frumpy. Fortunately, that's not the case anymore. Outside recently did a round-up of some of the best men's and women's sun shirts on the market, including our very own Hawkins Shirt.
Here's what writer Graham Averill had to say about the Hawkins: "Don’t let the mellow aesthetic fool you, this shirt performs. Designed for women who shred singletrack, this three-quarter-sleeve vixen has a UPF 50+ rating and a drop-tail hem to provide coverage while you’re in the saddle. Its poly/spandex mix that stretches and wicks fast when you need it most."
Want more options for sun shirts? We've got others, too. Check out the women's Dolly Shirt, a lightweight, long-sleeved button-up built for raft trips, hiking, and days at the beach. Also for women, our Moonlight Shirt is a light hoodie that offers ample protection from the sun without overheating.
