No matter whether you’re on short day hike or long hike, Hiking tee is necessary gear you must have. Whether it’s hot or cold, you must wear Full Sleeve Hiking tee.
Advantage of Full sleeve t-shirt over half sleeve is that it can protect your hand from harsh UV rays, protect from thorn in forest area and save your hand from scratch.
Getting proper trekking apparel is tough tasks in India and only popular brand in India is Quechua & Wildcraft.
Wildcraft produce some nice hiking tee for both normal days & summer days. It has new Hypacool collection which is specially designed for Indian hot weather trekking.
The Wildcraft Full Sleeve Hiking tee is made from polyester which is light, breathable and dry fast. The Hypacool Tee comes with UV protection. The special hypacool fabric provides moisture wicking and its flatlock seams prevent the skin from chafing.
Wildcraft Hypacool Hiking Tee is specially designed for hot weather and you’ll really feel comfortable in hot day. I tested this in 38°C temperature with few KM of trek on steep hills.
Features of Wildcraft Hypacool Full Sleeve T-shirt:
- UV Protection Factor (UPF) up to 50
- Lightweight & breathable fabric
- Wicking Coating that draws sweat onto the fabric’s surface and away from the skin.
- Mesh Panels i high-sweat zones.
- Powerful stitching with reduced laters.
- Reflective print for low-light visibility
- Thumbhole provision prevents the sleeves from slipping back and keeping the wind out.
Wildcraft Hypacool tshirt comes with UPF 50 rating which consider as an Excellent in Protection category. UPF 50 rated fabric is capable to block 97% UV radiation.
The tee is using mesh panels under the armpits which make the area breathable.
The only problem I faced with this tee is Drying speed is not good. I know this tee is design for hot days but If you’re planning for swim in the middle of trek then you’ll better carry another tee.
I highly recommend this T-shirt if you’re planning for trek or normal day outing. The Tshirt is stylish, comfortable and protect your skin from UV rays & chafing.
