We recommend the Patagonia Sun Stretch Shirt primarily as a trekking base layer or insect-protection layer in camp for summer (warm) environments.

It has a unique mix of features:

  • reasonably trim fit with good articulation
  • soft next to the skin
  • fast-drying
  • collar and cuffs
  • mosquito-resistant weave
  • side-entry zip pockets

Not only does the Patagonia Sun Stretch shirt tick all of these boxes, it’s one of the lightest shirts that offers this feature set.
