Description

We’ve designed the Aragon shirt to feel just as soft, light and comfortable as cotton, with the added performance of synthetic fabrics. It’s the sort of shirt that you’d wear to stay cool on a hot trek or bike ride but happily wear out for dinner afterwards.

  • The comfortable natural feel of cotton and a fabric that stretches with you
  • Super wicking and fast-drying to keep you cool, plus UPF 50+ protection
  • Polygeine® anti-odour treatment and can be washed and dried overnight

In baking heat, a looser fitting cotton shirt can feel more comfortable than a close-fitting base layer. But there’s nothing worse than walking in a sticky, sweat-sodden cotton shirt all day so we’ve designed the Aragon to combine the benefits of both.

The light fabric has a soft, natural feel that moves with you and the tailoring around the shoulders provides additional freedom. This stops the shirt from feeling restrictive under a rucksack and allows you to stretch forwards on the bike or for gaining extra trekking pole leverage.

Because the fabric’s synthetic fibres don’t absorb water, the Aragon is naturally wicking and extremely fast drying. But, on top of that, the yarns in the fabric have been given a permanent wicking treatment. This speeds up evaporation to keep you cool and dry, even under a beating sun.

The fabric has a UPF of 50+, providing a high level of sun protection, whether that’s abroad, at altitude or during the height of British summer.

Polygeine®anti-odour technology keeps you (or at least your shirt!) smelling fresher for longer on cycle tours and and multi-day hillwalking trips. Plus, because the Aragon is so fast drying, it can be easily washed and dried overnight in a hostel sink/closest body of non-mucky water for longer stretches of travelling.

"By choosing a fabric with inherent mechanical stretch and tailoring the shirts for movement, we’ve eliminated the need for spandex (which holds moisture), keeping the shirt as light and fast-drying as possible." - Ronnie, Design Manager

Sustainability & Care

Product Care Information

This shirt has been treated with Polygiene® Stay Fresh technology which inhibits the growth of bacteria, so you can wear it for longer before it starts to whiff.

When it does start to pong, wash on a normal cycle at 30°C or handwash with cool water. Use a non-biological detergent or pure soap. DO NOT use fabric conditioners or softeners - these will stop your shirt wicking as well. Rinse thoroughly in clean water and line dry or tumble dry on low heat.

Sustainability

Polygiene® Stay Fresh
Polygiene® Stay Fresh technology inhibits the growth of pong-causing bacteria, extending your shirt's lifespan and meaning you can wear it more and wash it less. Wearing your shirt just one more time before washing can save huge amounts of CO₂ and water over its lifespan.
