Outlier: Experimental Sunshirt

Outlier's really been killing it as of lately. Three Ways for days, how about the R

ockaway and now this Experimental Sunshirt! I live in the desert, which means I spend a lot of time in the desert and protecting myself from the sun is always my number 1 priority. Usually it's with some kind of cap and Kinesys but with this shirt I wouldn't need either! Some may think this shirt is a little funny, it's most definitely not for everyone and probably will only be sold to campsters in the Southwest who really need it. So Outlier, I salute you. This shirt is rad!

A seersucker pivot shirt with a removable hood to help keep you safe and cool in the sun. UV protective fabrics need to be densely woven in order to prevent the sun's rays from reaching your skin, but that same density tends to make the fabric hotter and less breathable. With the Experimental Sunshirt we tried to slice around that catch-22 by using a UV protective seersucker. Seersucker is a great summer fabric because it's crinkled texture minimizes skin contact, allowing air to flow freely around the body, especially when you are in motion. Two front pockets and a large mesh inner stash pocket so you can carry what you need to. Wear it like an overshirt on long days outside. The hood can be worn in front or back, or removed altogether. An Outlier Experiment.
