Traveling the trade winds takes you through the tropics, and there’s one constant there: heat. You need a shirt that has breathability carved into its DNA. Enter the Tradewinds shirt, built with what we call our “Micro-Pore fabric” and offers amazing ventilation. Invisible when wearing, these tiny holes all over the shirt let air flow through and over every part of your torso keeping you cool and looking smart!
Reason for Being: Ideal for travel in hot climates, the Tradewinds Shirt was designed to keep you cool with innovative ventiliation.
Fabric: Our 100% polyester micro pore fabric is dotted with tiny holes that allow air to flow through the entire shirt, keeping you cool and dry.
Sun Protection: The Tradewinds Shirt carries a UPF 25+ sun protection rating.
The Tradewinds longsleeve shirt is quite comfortable and cool and I really like the coral color I ordered. My only reservation is with the non-standard snap cuff design which makes the look more casual than I would have wished--it gives the shirt a kind of a puffy pirate sleeve look. While the snap cuff is visible in the web site photo it doesn't really stand out clearly and it's not mentioned in the description or features sections as I think it should be.

Bought 1 on a whim liked it so much bought another. Very lightweight and the micro-pores really do let any breeze in which on hot days is excellent. The only problem is if the weather turns chilly you will feel it. Pockets are deep enough to hold my glasses cases and with the zippers they don't fall out. Drys FAST both of sweat and with a nightly washing. By morning it's dry. Not a big fan of the cuff design (would like to be able to open the cuffs up) and my neck misses a collar (have to be careful of neck-burn). But for hot or warm climes excellent.

This is the single most comfortable shirt I have ever owned. The feel of the fabric is incredible. the shirt is very cool to wear fits great and looks sharp. I liked it so much I bought another one.
