How to Choose a Shirt for Outdoors

Material

The material of your outdoor shirt has a great impact on your performance on the trails. When you are hiking in the summer season you need to wear long sleeve shirts that offer moisture wicking properties, proper ventilation, and comfortable body temperature. You can choose sophisticated synthetic material and lightweight merino wool fabric shirts that are known to be durable and performance oriented for hot hiking days.
The outdoor shirt you choose must have the following properties: breathable, moisture wicking, quick drying, temperature regulating, anti microbial and lightweight

Fit

It depends on individual preferences how fit they like to have hiking shirts. However, for summer hiking outdoor activities, it is good to have a bit of loose short sleeve shirts which provide better ventilation. Avoid wearing too loose hiking shirts as it will cause rubbing and chafing on your skin.

UV Protection

It offers a great advantage if your hiking shirt protects you against UV rays. The UPF rating of the garment shows how much UV radiation it can protect against. The UPF rating of the shirt depends on different factors such as the amount of stretch, material polyester, wool, cotton, and condition new or worn out. Salewa, Columbia, Haglöfs, CMP, and Vaude offer sophisticated varieties of shirts for women.
