Think its about time to start wearing something to protect from the sun and cats claw. Suggestions?

Any REI, Columbia, Sunday Afternoon Adventures, or other similar brand travel/hiking shirt will work. I like collars for sun protection. Mesh side panels are nice. Front chest pockets are good for storing items. Loose and baggy is good for airflow but catches on more cacti and cat claw.

I buy close outs from past seasons, it doesn’t have to look good. My main complaint is too many shirts marketed as for hiking and sun protection are too dark.

These Coolmax shirts are excellent. Wore the same shirt during the recent 2.5 day sheep count. Excellent breathability, granite and cactus-resistant. No collars ... but I wore a hat with a neck flap that took care of that.

Coolmax does the trick also.

For the Condor and Coolmax, A couple questions. Hows the neck fit? I don't like tightness here. I'm tall narrow build with long arms so hows the shink once washed? I like both and my hat also has a neck flap. Thanks

I noticed no shrinkage with the Coolmax in warm water and air-drying. Neck fit seems normal.

I don't think any of mine have ever shrunk, if anything they tend to stretch a bit....but I use mine for years before replacing. Some people like cotton shirts that hold all your sweat, not sure why but I prefer these as they dry very quickly.

Got the shirts in. Like them. Next question is this. I've always hiked in Jeans. They're starting to chap the inside of my legs.

Suggestions for lightweight hiking pants?

Railriders are extremely-durable and comfortable.

I used to go with cheap White Sierra zip off pants, but lately I've started hiking with Prana pants. They are stretchy so scrambling is easier and they are tough. I usually destroy pants in about 6 months but these are lasting longer.

I have also bought these, they work great also

Under Armour Men UA Tac Tech Long Sleeve Tee

for pants, I just use denim or camo pants of some sort, Pencott Badlands is my favorite pattern for sure but hard to find, A-TACS is another good pattern for the desert.

Helikon Badlands CPU Pants

Tru Spec A-TACS Pants
