Technical information


The UPF index (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) corresponds to tests carried out on fabric by a spectrophotometer. A UPF 40 rating means that the fabric only lets 1/40th of the UV light through. This is one of the best available protection ratings against the sun's rays.


To reduce the risk of harmful damage from the desert sun, this shirt is designed to ensure maximum skin coverage:

- Long sleeves with a longer section at the wrist to protect the hands
- Collar that can be raised to cover the back of the neck


To manage the heat more effectively in the desert, this shirt is made with a lightweight fabric and the loose fit has air vents at the front and back.

As a result, the fabric does not stick to the skin, lets air circulate and reduces perspiration. The back vents do not work with a backpack sitting on the back. To achieve this, we recommend the Desert 500 backpack, which allows the back vents to work properly.
