Are you looking for performance apparel that is the perfect beach shirt? That fishing shirt, sun block shirt, swimming shirt, UPF shirt or SPF shirt that will deliver superior sun (uv) protection, performance and moisture wicking? Then look no further, we have the ultimate performance shirt. Our Solar Performance UPF long sleeve t-shirt is the perfect addition to any active outdoor lifestyle. It offers superior sun protection, with up to UPF 50+ solar (uv) protection built directly into the fibers of the fabric. This U/V protection is permanent, and will never wash out through the life of the shirt. The 4.1-ounce, 100% microfiber fabric is both breathable and lightweight. The fabric is further enhanced from an innovative mechanical stretch, which decreases dry time and feels light on the body. The Vapor Solar Performance is ideal for hot summer days when protection from the sun is needed most or as a base layer for cold days. The Solar Performance UPF t-shirt is built with our PURE-tech moisture-wicking system permanently infused in the fibers of the fabric. Because of this technology, our Solar Performance shirts dry far faster than standard cotton garments. Our UPF shirts also include M-Shield (Anti-microbial technology) which keeps our fabrics fresh (odor free), attractive and ready for more. M-Shield technology is Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified and BlueSign System approved for sustainability.

Living in WA and visiting Hawaii for two weeks, I knew my skin wasn't ready for my planned outdoor water centric activities of fly fishing, snorkeling or kayaking...not wanting to break the bank, I bought both this and another suitable color for those activities. Using them both got me thru two weeks with no sunburn, and most of all, with total enjoyment outdoors as a result. I wore each while outside, they performed perfectly, took being wet with no added weight like cotton does, dried quickly, didn't pill and fit my aging, overweight body comfortably. Being an athletic but aging 5-9 180 makes a large my typical size choice and this one fit like I wanted. Not tight thru the armpits, not a " kids to the knees" fit, with loose folds bothering my every move, I would reccomend highly this shirt for the same purposes as for what I bought it for, a simple outdoors shirt to block the sun and used while in the water...dj
This is my third Vapor Apparel shirt. The first two were the Altered Latitudes versions with designs on them, and were very light weight shirts perfect for hot weather. This is supposedly the exact same shirt but without a design, but the fabric is quite a bit thicker than the first two, and will obviously not be as cool in hot weather. All the shirts were described as 4.1 oz. microfiber, so I am puzzled as to the difference.
Since I posted this review I received an email from Vapor Apparel stating that the shirt should indeed have been exactly the same as the AL shirts I had ordered, and offering to send a replacement. I had not contacted them with my concern - They monitor the Amazon reviews. Considering this amazing customer service, you absolutely can't go wrong with these shirts.
My dermatologist strongly recommended that I start wearing UPF shirts(lots of skin cancers). I was given a catalog and the prices were sky high and beyond my budget but I came here to Amazon and found this shirt. It fits well, looks good and was more than 1/2 off the catalog merchandise. I will definitely be buying more.
