A hiking shirt that’s stretchy and packed with features

This shirt is made from one of the most stretchy materials reviewed here, and that makes it very comfortable. It’s also loaded with features. The material is nylon and quick-drying, and it’s in a ripstop pattern. It’s quite thin, but the cuffs, front closure and collar are reinforced. The fabric has a sun protection value of UPF50. There’s no insect repellent however. There are vents at the back and a collar that stands up well. There are two chest pockets with Velcro-style fastenings. The cuffs are buttoned, and there’s a tag to hold up the sleeves.
