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.

Packs Down Small
I had some troubles to find the perfect sizing, I'm 186cm tall and I have a climbers back aka it is wide. I ended up with the size XL to have enough room and that my belly wouldn't pop out :)
Love the shirt and the material/feel. I highly recommend!
The shirt is very nice. The sizing is weird Med-xlarge and med-xxlarge. Ordered large and very small. Otherwise nice material.
Will and I got these excellent shirts through Kickstarter and I have had them just a few months. Full marks for style and wearability, and we look forward to _traveling_ with them someday after we get vaccinated. Perfect for hostel life! They hand or machine wash easily and dry quickly enough to be worn next morning, hiking or in the city. Really nice quality fabric and buttons, and I love the zippered pockets, handy for a passport (or mask!) -- sooo nice for women, who are generally pocket-deprived. Will (a logo hater) wanted to remove one star though, for the small "unnecessary" tag on the front pocket. (That's his only complaint and he removed the offender before leaving the house.) Otherwise, we both like the shirts a lot for comfort and looks. Between us we have the shirts in all colors. I was slightly disappointed that the blue shirt, while okay, is more grey and less vibrant than pictured. I still dream of that rich blue in the photo.
Re: sizing, both men's and women's shirts run rather small if one goes by the size chart, and we had to send the men's back twice! Luckily CoalaTree was very good about paying for shipping. We would order again from this company, especially if they get a red or green.
I got two of these shirts on the Kickstarter campaign & liked them so much I bought a third.
I’ve even had strangers comment on how good they look (this is New Zealand do that does tend to happen).
Well thought out pockets - my face mask 😷 is always at hand. Now if you could manage some brighter colours...,a nice red or green?
I received the shirt on 12. 16. 2020.
The materials used for the shirt give the feeling of resistance to the touch. The size is perfect.
I have to wait for the summer season to wear it.
It is really beautiful.
I love the material of the shirt and the design of the pockets. this shirt is a great for everyday wear.
It's a great looking shirt that you can wear in city or bush. The only thing I've found is sizing runs small for me. I'm 175cm tall and weigh 83kgs and sizing said Med. But I ordered large as that's what I normally wear and large is just good. And I've ordered a XL now as its hot in Australia so looser is best on hot days.
