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.
Reason For Being: Fashion meets function. The Oasis Shirt keeps up with you on the trail, but will work just as well in the backyard or to the office.
Fabric: As of 2015, transitioned to the new 1.5 ounce 76% nylon/24% polyester blend.
UV Protection: Carries a sun protection rating of UPF 30+.
Insect Shield: 100% safe treatment for your clothing that will repel harmful insects and ticks. Permethrin is a new industry standard for bug repellant and the amount contained in our treated clothing is guaranteed to be safe for adults, children, and even pets. Effective up to 70 washes.
Ventilation: Carries side-mesh ventilation running from cuff to hem along the underarm and side of the torso. Back cape vent allows airflow and additional ventilation.
I love it. It's comfortable super lightweight and can adjust to different weather by what I put under or over it. And after having many tick bites before I got it I haven't had a single one since I started wearing your Insect Shield -treated pants shirt and socks. The material seems magic in resisting stains or wild-rosebust-thorn tears. And it dries really fast. So now I can do lots of happy woods and fields dog-walking without fear of ticks. Thank you
