Blocks UV RaysKeep your skin healthy from the sand to the slopes! The tiny pores in the fabric trap and block UV rays, turning the Switchback Shirt into a chemical-free shield.
ODOR-RESISTANTCoffee is a naturally odor-absorbing material and by weaving the grounds into the fibers, odors are trapped as you sweat. Because the grounds are embedded into the fabric, this feature is permanent and will never wash out!
WRINKLE RESISTANTOur fabric is wrinkle resistant and quick to dry, making it the perfect travel shirt. The switchback is always looking fresh for your next adventure.
KEEP YOUR VALUABLES SAFE, ANYWHERENever worry again about pick pocketing while traveling! The Switchback has hidden zipper pockets so you can safely and discreetly stash your valuables. No matter where in the world your travels take you, pick-pocketers don’t stand a chance at getting your phone, wallet, or other valuables. Keep your mind at ease so you can relax and explore!
Keeps you CoolOur fabric has been proven to lower the temperature around your body, making it perfect for those hot travel days. Ice Cafe is a sustainable yarn whose’ benefits will never wash out. This keeps pollutants from harming our water supplies.
Waterless DyeWe use a dye method that reduces energy and water waste at our factories. By using a "closed-loop" of CO2 vapors, not only can we reuse stored CO2, but we are able to circumvent the need for water to dye textiles.
Stain ResistantOur shirt is stain, wrinkle, and odor resistant, making it easy to clean. No need to find a last-minute laundromat when you're on the road, smells and messes wont' stick to the Switchback.

Article about the problem with DWR
The fabric feels fantastic! It’s super comfortable and I like how it fits. I usually wear a size medium shirt, but I ordered a large so I had room for a Tee underneath if I wanted, and I like the way it fits. I’m 5’4, 145 pounds and the length is perfect. The side zip pockets are roomy and lay flat when nothing is in them. It’s so light weight, but holds a nice shape. I’m hoping for a long sleeve version!
I’ll be wearing it for hiking, but it looks nice enough for going out afterwards. And, well, coffee grounds !!
I have been looking for a short sleeve outdoors/travel shirt and I found this one. The fabric is cool, comfortable, and wrinkle-free. I’m 5’6” and 135 pounds and I ordered a medium. It fits perfectly; not too tight or too long. I love the blue color and I just might order another in black.
A bit pricey but I had been searching for a women's button down shirt that I liked for so long that I didn't mind too much. I bought the black first (I think it looks grey). It fit true to size and is breathable as advertised. I liked it enough to order another one in blue.
comfortable shirt, love the zip pockets, great for travel
Loved this shirt so much that I bought another in a different color. This shirt works for in the office, around town, and on the trail. The zippered pockets gives you a place to store items you want accessible, but secured (iphone, keys, etc.). I was pleased to find that these had been positioned so they were not in conflect with where my pack straps were located. I have worn this shirt to the office as well as on a 109 mile backpacking trip. The fabric dried quickly and stayed remarkably clean after several days in the High Sierras (I did rinse it out almost daily when I came upon a stream or lake).
Well cut, flattering but still functional. Good for working outdoors in the heat. Purchased in brown and gray, but brown wasn't for me. I'm 5'3" and 120#, petite but strong and a Small fit well.
Love the shirt. comfortable fit but not boxy So nice to have a shirt that isn't so long. Love the pockets too will be great for traveling.
