You appreciate the importance of packing the right kind of travel apparel for hot destinations. With our popular Women’s Oasis Shirt, you’ll always beat the heat in tropical rain forests and island-hopping journeys. And now for 2009, we’ve added something even more spectacular to the Oasis’s lightweight sun-blocking fabric: it’s treated with Insect Shield techology that is odorless, invisible, and bonded right to the fibers. Now you can ward off annoying biting insects and not have to slather bug-repellent lotion on your skin. The Oasis Shirt also boasts dyed-to-match mesh panels underneath the arms and a back yoke for ventilating comfort and enhanced breathability. It is extremely packable, and you will be surprised by its easy maintenance (it handles hotel sinks with quick-drying aplomb and the Insect Shield® protection lasts up to 70 washings). There’s a seven-button front, roll-up tabs on the sleeves, and the overall slimming fit is feminine in the shoulders.
