Best Safari style shirt for Expedition and Casual wear

Looked at their stuff. Looked at the hats, all of their hats have such small brims. Want something with 4.5 to 5 inch brim, really difficult to get a decent wide brim hat.

Look at the various Aussie brands, they are really into sun protection down there and you see a lot more styles with the wide brims.

The best warm weather "safari" shirt that I have come across is the Eddie Bauer Water Guide. Light, breathable, good UV protection and wrinkle free if you fold or hang as it comes out of the dryer. The sleeves are fitted around your hands for better sun and bug protection and the sleeves roll up and button in place (as in the photo below). The back is vented also. My favourite shirt of all time!

Check out our new Thunderbolt Shirt, it might fit the bill. Josh designed it for many of the use cases mentioned here. Here are some of the features:

• Poly-Cotton Stretch Fabric
• Teflon-Coated for stain, sweat and water resistance
• 5-pockets including pen pocket and large rear stash pocket
• Front and Rear ventilation keeps you cool
• Long and Short sleeve

Feel free to ask any questions about it here.

How do the TAD shirts fit; I wear small in Arc'teryx and wonder if the fit is the same?
Button-ups are true to size, I size up for t-shirts (since I like a looser fitting shirt), jackets (for the most part) are pretty true to size. Some are built for layering, some are not.

A +1 for OTG apparel. I met them at OE East last year and ordered a pair of their Trailblazer pants which quickly became some of my favorites. Even better, they're not outrageously priced. Definitely looking forward to getting a Thunderbolt or two.

OTG_Bobby, does "• Teflon-Coated for stain, sweat and water resistance " mean any armpit sweat will just run down the inside or on your body and not get wicked out through the fabric?
