blocks uv rays

Keep 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 resistant

Coffee 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 resistant

Our fabric is wrinkle resistant and quick to dry, making it the perfect travel shirt. The switchback is always looking fresh for your next adventure.

Never worry again about pick pocketing while traveling! The Switchback has hidden zipper pockets so you can safely and discreetly stash your valuables.

Our 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.

Great gift!

I bought this shirt for myself and liked it so much I got the ne for my sister for her birthday. We both enjoy hiking and sailing, and the zippered pockets and quick dry are perfect.

Please offer more colors!!!!

I purchased this shirt in both blue and black 2 years ago. I cannot reccomend them enough. To this day they are in good condition. I do practically live in them. They are cool, breathable, lightweight, and I love how they look. The pockets are so appreciated. My only complaint is that I want to buy more and they dont offer enough desirable colors. I would love one in forest green or blush pink or a darker black (the current black is more like dark grey in person).

This is great for hiking, kayaking and also casual wear.

Sweet Sweet Switchback Shirt

Quality fabric and terrific design, super comfortable. Lots of details to love especially the 2 zippered pockets on lower front of shirt which can hold my phone and wallet. Seems like it will wear like iron. Would love rust or purple.

Perfect shirt!

This shirt is so so comfy. I’m glad I sized up. It’s not too fitted or baggy and the material is lightweight and cooling.

This seems like it will be a great top for office casual to home, the outdoors...
I'm 5'2" and I like the length especially (not too long).

Love everything about this shirt!

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 !!

Great shirt!

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.
