Orvis Helios Caster UPF30+ shirt

Summer is upon us, as well as time spent camping, fishing, hiking, and so on… but so is the sun. The sun is great! Its light feeds your garden plants, makes the earth green, and provides long lit days to get outside. However, for those less-than-tan individuals, the sun can mean the end to an otherwise enjoyable day: sunburn.

All is not lost, because the folks at Orvis fashioned up a shirt to end all summer shirts. It’s light, breathable, attractive, and… long sleeved? Yes, long sleeves, made with a UPF30+ fabric that’s so light you’ll forget you’re even wearing a shirt.

Fabric with Ultraviolet Protection Factor of 30+ keeps 96-97% of UV rays away from your skin. This means the Helios is better protection than sun block because you don’t have to reapply after sweating it out.

This shirt features a discreet mesh cape allowing air to circulate, a hidden button down collar to keep your top from popping in the wind, and button tab sleeves. The two chest pockets are zippered to keep from losing your flies in the river, or your compass on a hike. The hem is straight, but is cut long so as to be worn tucked or untucked.  Also, since you’ll be wearing this in the summer, built in Natural Odor Eliminator keeps the stench down.

The Helios Caster comes in three colors, so get one of each to battle both burns and heat during your summer fun.
