Sherpa Adventure Gear Sonam Quarter Zip T

Summer's fantastic array of outdoor activities requires lightweight layering choices for variable temperatures and conditions. When day transitions into cooler evenings and nights, preparing involves having the proper lightweight base layers to meet performance and comfort needs. High-end fabrics crafted from polyester, silk, merino wool or cotton blends provide versatility. Offerings from Sherpa Adventure Gear, Icebreaker, Outdoor Research and Polarmax highlight products for many summer adventures.

Sherpa Adventure Gear Sonam Quarter Zip

The soft and smooth, long sleeve, zip tee is sharp looking and versatile. Fabricated with water-resistant fabric, the Sonam controls thermal conductivity, keeping you warm in cold weather and cool in the heat of the day.

In Tibetan, Sonam means good fortune and this vibe translates into how it functions - fast wicking, fast drying and blocks 99% of UV rays in full sun exposure. Stretch rib fabric, 54% polyester and 46% nylon blend, is woven with anti-bacterial silver ions to minimize odor.

A smooth outer feel makes layering easy with other fabrics or products. The partial zip allows for easy on/off, ventilation and, a welded zip chest pocket secures essentials. The Sherpa Adventure Gear Sonam Quarter Zip T is a versatile long sleeve shirt originating from sherpas who know their climates and clothing needs. (MSRP $49)

Wearing short sleeve, high-tech shirts is one thing, but when you don a merino wool product from Icebreaker, you are in for a treat. Cool in hot weather, and warmer in cooler weather, the performance benefits of premium merino will make the Icebreaker Superfine 200 Hopper one of your favorite tops.

The Icebreaker Superfine line of shirts shows the adaptability of merino - optimal base layering comfort in any temperature. The Icebreaker Superfine 200 Hopper's contrasting sleeves, nature inspired colors combine casual styling with breathability and body comfort. It's a pick for evening stroll, bike ride or run in dry weather. (MSRP $75)
